      Sky BB Box Wireless Connection / C&W USB Adaptor

      I have a spare Cable & Wireless LAN Mini USB Adaptor floating around the house and I've decided to go wireless and I can get it to recognise the Sky BB Box as a network but I cannot connect to the net or anything with it - the signal is 77% roughly.

      When I check the network connections, there is no entry under the "Default Gateway", "DNS Server" and "WINS Server" but I can get IP address and subnet mask?

      Any ideas on what I can do to get my wireless connection working properly?

      Try changing the Wireless Settings. Mode: from g & b to Auto 108 in the router.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Unfortunately, that hasn't worked.

      I'm only getting a 150k speed when I'm running this through the LAN. It's really annoying me.

      Anyone else had problems with connecting a USB adaptor - if so, how do you get around it? Still cant get the "Default Gateway", "DNS Server" and "WINS Server" to appear when I have connected.

      Any other ideas I can do? Is it something to do with "Wireless Station Access List"?
