      Sky Router and Belkin Adapter

      Just got connected to Sky Broadband with the Netgear router. I've got my PC connected up via ethernet and it works great. I also had my friend's 360 connected up as well and that worked fine. I tried getting my sister's PC working wirelessly upstairs using a Belkin Wireless Network Adapter. I came across some problems and fixed them by manually settings the Subnet Mask, Gateway, IP and DNS. The adapter software showed that it was connected to the router wirelessly (so did the router's admin software) but that the router wasn't connected to the net. I've also tried getting on with my PSP but it keeps on exchanging key information and timing out. What could the problem be? I've tried to use WZC but the Belkin software simply won't uninstall.

      Try turning off encryption temporarily in the router (see help files on Sky CD or tutorials here) and see if it all works -- I've a feeling that some games machines only support WEP.

      Re: Sky Router and Belkin Adapter

      What model of Belkin adapter are you using? I use one to connect an Xbox 360 to my wireless network but had to change the routers encryption to WEP as the adapter can only use this type.

      You can tell which encryption the adapter can use when you try to install using the disc that came with it and drop down the encryption options box.
      Mine is a F5D7330.

      If you need help setting this up gives me a shout

      I've tried it with both open access and WEP with no luck. Adapter model is F5D7050.

      i have no idea what the problem is , i need to get this working.

      @ikettles - when u have wep/wap on, does it ask for the key?

      mine doesnt, i have turned wep/wap off temporarily, but when i try n connect, it times out.
