      Angry I can't connect my comp to the netgear router!

      Hi

      attached are some pics of the problems I'm having. the first pic show's my connection to the router. or lack of.

      The second pic show's me the properties, but I key in the the network key and nothing happens.

      there is nothing wrong with the router as I can connect my PSP with the network key but my comp won't and I can't see any obvious ways of changing the settings. Help!

      Sky says it's net gears problem and net gear says it's Sky's problem. I don't know where to turn

      any ideas anyone???

      I may be wrong but I think the encription setting is wrong. From memory I think the standard setting for the sky router is TKIP or something similar.
      Try altering that and see if it connects.
      Cheers

      dholdi is correct it should be set to TKIP
