      Multiple Wireless Connections

      I have been connected for just over a week. I have now noticed that my router won't allow more then one connection over the wireless connection. I have just reset the router to the factory defaults but still no joy. If one connection is active, the other just sits there trying to aquire a network address.

      Is this the norm??

      Re: Multiple Wireless Connections

      Nope it isn't! me and my bro often have 3 or 4 devices connected at the same time. Try turning the sercurity settings off in the router menu temporary see if that helps, I had a problem with a mates where he had a 3 year old IBM thinkpad which didn't support WPA encryption which the Sky router is set to by default, we had to change it to WEP.
