      I can't get WIFI on my laptop

      I guys need urgent help, before I begin Iam a novice on computers so i apoligise now. For some stupid reason I cant the sky wifi to work on my laptop. Even though i am connected to the router and have put my network key in all i get is 'acquiring network address'. If i was to use the ethernet cable my internet works fine, if I was to use another laptop it works fine. I have called into sky, no help from them. I am takinga guess it could be my laptop (IBM T60). If there is anybody who can help me, please let me know asap.....its driving me crazy!!!

      Did you put the key in using capitals? If not then that is what happens. If you did then you can try changing the channel and dropping the router to WEP encryption.
