      Getting there ...

      Hello

      I have read through a lot of previous posts but am still having some issues with my Sky broadband wireless access.

      I ran the install CD on my wireless laptop (I don't have a phoneline next to my desktop) and internet access worked fine via the ethernet cable. I also followed the instructions for wireless use and this worked fine as well. Everything then stopped and the laptop was unable to acquire a network address for the ethernet or wireless adaptor.

      I followed the Sky help folder and manually assigned an IP address - this works fine for the ethernet (can get internet access) and is also connecting via wireless (according to the laptop) but I can't get any internet access via the wireless route. I have taken the ethernet cable out and the same thing happens.

      I have been through the wireless setup tutorial and made sure the channels are matching and MAC filtering is off etc but was at the limit of my expertise!

      Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks.

      If you have the icon showing in your task bar when you are in wireless mode, can you right click and try the repair option ?

      I tried but it is reporting that there is nothing to repair. On the face of it it looks fine but I can't get any internet access at all (but then can when the ethernet is plugged in)
