      Cannot find IP address

      Just fitted my sky router last night ,everything pretty straight forward and on line quite quickly.Problem is the wife's Laptop won't pick up the wireless signal.It says searching for IP address but never finds one.
      While searching it tells us we have a strong wireless signal.
      Never had a problem pre sky and was using Netgear then also.
      Any ideas please.
      Thanks for a neccassary and worthwhile forum.

      Re: Cannot find IP address

      I have exactly the same poblem as Tenerman

      My wireless conection worked fine for a month - now it won't find the IP address though it finds the router and has a strong signal.

      Connects ok via a wired connection.

      I am tearing my hair out over this and have no idea how to fix it!!

      Re: Cannot find IP address

      and like a miracle I have fixed the problem

      I had set a WPA access key in the router and set this in the network card log on details.

      for some reason the router has changed the password back to its default value...I changed this back to my choice and the wireless now work again!!!!

      Re: Cannot find IP address

      Apart from the post being over 2 years old, it refers to an internal LAN IP address, not the one you refer to.
