      No wireless internet from sky router

      I recently attempted to connect a wireless laptop to a sky router. It was the black, tall slim version; netgear I think.

      The laptop saw the router but got a continual 'pending' status.

      I then entered the router config page and turned off wireless security, retsrated it, but still had no luck.

      Another laptop had been tried previously with the factory security key with the same results.

      I would presume that MAC code filtering isn't on by default as out of the box it is not mentioned to the average user, so what could be causing this?

      Could it simply be a duff router? That's the conclusion I came to.

      The router provides internet access via ethernet with no problems.

      might want to go back into the router settings and change channel number. Some people turn off SSID broadcast so you may actually have someone near you on the same channel and not be able to see them but it will impact the wireless side of your connection.
      If that doesn't work go into the router settings and turn of encryption and apply, if you still cannot connect then there is something going on somewhere.

      Thanks for the replies.

      No, didn't try the resest button as it wasn't mine and I wasn't sure whether it would wipe the username and password. I've since read that it wouldn't have, but never mind.

      I tried changing channel and turned encryption off, so as I said, concluded that the router was a dud. I just wondered if there was anything specific to these routers in particular.

      Cheers again.
