      Hi,
      Does it still occur when you cable directly from the router to PC/Laptop?

      Try turning both your router and laptop off. Wait. Then turn the router back on. Wait. Then turn your laptop on, and connect with the yellow cable. Connect to the internet, then switch to wireless. It worked for me. Good luck.

      "Limited or no connectivity" - when you have good signal strength - is actually Windows-ese for "Can't contact the DHCP server", which in turn can be caused by authentication problems. The "reset router and PC" thing is really good advice, as it allows both router and PC to flush their ARP and DHCP tables and start again afresh. You may also see some success (if the wireless adaptor is USB) by pulling it out and plugging it back in.

      Beware of older wireless adaptors that use their own software to handle the connection - XP SP2 can often get into an argument with them and cause all kinds of fun issues. Update the drivers (if possible) and try uninstalling the control software and just using the XP one.

      Oh, and make sure it's your network you're trying to connect to - if one of your neighbours also has Sky your adaptor could be trying to connect to that one with your details, which isn't going to work...
