      Router DG830GT appears twice in Connect to

      I have a DG830GT wireless router and last night was having problem getting connected.

      I am running vista on a wireless laptop and click on the start menu and then connect to and can now see the router twice.

      It lists SKYXXXX and SKYXXXX 2, the SKY no.s are identical.

      If i switch the router off and on and then delete these wireless connections they both re-appear. Renaming the router will only change the result i.e WOZZA and WOZZA 2.

      Has anyone else had this probem???

      many thanks

      You might look at wireless settings in the router and make sure it's not set to Auto 108 mode. b&g mode is the default setting.

      The Sky Man on the phone talked me through that and i remember that it was set to b&g. The guy also told me to delete the networks which worked for a short time until i reconnectd.
