      Wireless connecting but no internet

      JUST REALISED THIS IS IN WRONG FORUM. SORRY, THOSE WITH THE POWER CAN YOU MOVE IT. THANKS

      Hi everyone,

      Signed up here due to the nightmare that is Sky BB!

      All installed by Sky engineer which is basically him plugging the router in, not making sure your wireless connection works!

      The problem is: I can connect to my sky router with my wireless card (finds router and signal strength is excellent) but it wont let me access any internet sites. BT doesnt connect either.

      Any setting I could try tweaking? Im using a linksys WMP54G PCI card.

      Any help would be muchp appreciated!

      Thanks for your help wheelie. Doesnt seem to have made much difference unfortunately. Looks like my big long cable will have to stay for now.

      Unless there are any other ideas. I knows its probably a mindfield and could all sorts of other things. It works with a laptop that has an in built wireless card. What its likely to be the router or the wireless card? Or is that like asking how long is a piece of string.

      Im kinda techie when it comes to things like this, but 1st experience of wireless so Im a little lost!

      Thanks to anyone who might be able help.

      Oh and on top of this Im part of the constant router drop out brigade as well! No wonder its only 10 a month. Why didnt I stick with ntl! They even offered me the 4meg service for 10 a month!

      from the wireless connection are you able to access the router?
      at http://192.168.0.1

      if you are but not any external sites it could be a problem with the router not forwarding the dns properly.

      i had a problem where it wouldnt assign the ips, but it magically fixed itself and ive never had the same problem again.
