      Re: Can't conect through wireless No Address?

      Hi there,

      I'm new and this is my first post! I had my sky for 3-4 weeks and then all of a sudden i couldn't connect to my wireless. So i called SKY (OMG) and they ended up having to send me a new box, maybe they need to send u a new box.

      But now i have my new box and i can't connect wirelessly...the manual seems to be updated with some WEP and 192. ?? address to go to. I did that and got a new KEY....silly me put the old key in the prompt box and now i can't connect, i keep connecting to someone else with a crappy signal.

      I am really on my last nerve so i hope someone here can help.

      PLEASE!!!!
      Thanks in advance

      Press the reset button on the router -- behind a pinhole on the same panel as the aerial. This will restore the settings in the router (if that's the problem).

      If not, you need to change the settings in the Wireless adapter's utilities on your computer.

      If your computer has a network connector, connect direct to the router by ethernet cable and disable the router's encryption, this will allow you to connect until you figure out how to use encryption.

      The Sky CD help files include some instructions on how to do that.

      Thanks fihart you saved me from pulling my hair out, I've finally soved the issue thanks to you.

      Basically pushed the reset at the back of the router for 3-4 seconds. the tick sign started flashing andit rebooted. I rebooted my laptop and wireless was working like a dream.

      Dont know why it stopped working all of a sudden in the first place?!?!?

      Thanks again

      P.S. if this doesn't work check you firewall program for configuration.

      Hi Andy B,

      I had the same problem myself, everything worked fine with the wireless then suddenly it stopped working. I borrowed a friend's laptop and it worked with their wireless connection for a few days then the same thing happened with their machine.
      I solved my problem by uninstalling mcafee and using system restore to go back to a point before the last windows priority update. Then I turned off automatic updates.
      Not sure if it was something to do with the latest microsoft update messing things up but it's weird how things would work for a while then stop working. The only difference to my machine I could think of was this microsoft update being installed on it. Or it could just be mcafee... if you have it installed.

      Anyway, give it a go.

      Jim
