      Connection to WLAN failed

      I have a desktop pc working perfectly with a wired connection to my Sky router. I also have a laptop and another desktop which connected wirelessly up until yesterday but for some strange reason all I get when I try to connect is the message 'Connection to WLAN failed.'
      The Router is a DG834GT. I have tried re-entering the SSID and the network key and have messed about with all the settings so much not that I'm not sure if I've changed something I shouldn't have, although all the settings look correct to me.
      The laptop is running Windows Vista. When I click on my network it says signal strength excellent, security type WPA-PSK and Radio type 802.11g.
      I have checked the router settings and they all look ok, I think, well they seem to match what's on the back of my router as do the settings on the laptop. I've tried rebooting everything including the router. I don't know what else to try. I'm thinking it must be a problem with the router if both the wireless desktop and the laptop won't connect. Any ideas gratefully received.

      Have you tried connecting by ethernet? This is the first thing to try when wireless goes down. It could be your line has dropped it's connection, in which case Sky CS is your only option

      Yes, the one desktop is still working and I tried the ethernet cable in the laptop and it worked then.

      Try changing the channel, someone near to you may have a wireless connection which is messing up yours.
