      Suggest you link the laptop to the router via an ethernet cable and switch off wireless encryption until you can establish a reliable wireless connection. See tutorials here or help files on Sky CD for how to address the router user interface via Internet Explorer.

      If your laptop lacks a network connector socket,a PC Card (aka cardbus PCMCIA) or USB ethernet adapter costs 10 upwards.

      Assuming you're sure the problem is only with wireless (ie you can connect with wires) then (temporarily) turning off encryption should be your next step until you have achieved an (unencrypted) wireless connection. Then the fun starts in restoring encryption but at least you'll be clearer where your problem/s is/are.
