      cant connect belkin wifi phone

      Ok so I bought my dad a belkin skype phone for crimbo which I tested out at home on my netgear router and it worked a dream so I gave it to him today and proceded after a full reset to get it setup but I am having trouble connecting to his new sky d-link router I select network then give it the key thats on a card sky provided to which it just responds cannot connect I also tried another password that he had written on the back of the card and it says something like there was no IP addressed asigned for this unit.
      Ive tried everything I can think of reseting the phone restarting the router but nothing works.
      so if anyone has any ideas let me know as it was an expensive peice of kit just to throw in a draw.

      The first thing to try is disabling the wireless security in the router. If it then manages to connect, it points to a security problem, either in the key being entered or the standard being used. If you are using the default settings, the key is in capital letters make sure you are using these in the phone. I think the Dlink may be set to WPA2 as default, check the phone supports this.

      How do I do that cos I know with my netgear its a simple case of accessing the admin page for the router but I was under the impression routers supplied by sky could only be accessed by sky.
      I definitely typed the key in capitals and the phone supports the current security as mine is wpa2 and it connected no worries.
      Sorry if im being dumb but its my dads setup and trying to get useful info out of him is near impossible he didnt even know who made his router despite it being in big black letters on the side.

      Type http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar of your browser, hit enter and put admin for the username and sky for the password. Click the Setup link for the wireless setting.
