      Hi & welcome, can you access the router adminpage, 192.168.0.1. username - admin, password - sky. Then check that wireless is enabled and that the pc you are trying to connect wirelessly has the same settings
      cheers

      ... and if you can't access that page, and your ethernet cable won't stretch to the PC? I realise I'm probably bumping so-one else's thread, but it may be relevant to them!
