      Range, Interference, Encryption ?

      Have you tried applying the Sky passphrase to the wireless adapter ?

      If it still doesn't work try disabling encryption temporarily -- see tutorials on this site or help files on Sky CD for how to access the router's user interface via ethernet cable (yellow thingy) and Internet Explorer.


      Test wireless with the computer in same room as router to eliminate range issues.

      Do a site survey/scan with the wireless adapter's utilities to detect any neighbouring wifi that may interfere and move to a channel as far as possible from the strongest. Relocate cordless phone base station, video sender etc.

      Re: Wirless dropping out laptop

      I had an issue whereby my wireless connection to my laptop would be fine initially then drop off and the Sky router would need a reboot to get wireless working correctly again. I have since upgraded the router firmware to the latest Netgear release and everything has workwed fine ever since - except the wireless link on my Loox 720 PDA which did work on the Sky firmware - which apparently is a Loox issue.

      Regards,
      Westie
