      wireless adapter wont connect to sky router

      hi, im connected to my sky router via an x-micro wifi usb adapter, everything works fine but......

      ...... my dad also wants to use wireless, so i got another wifi card (pci this time).

      the card has installed correctly but wen i go to connect to the router, it just isnt happening, its not even askin for the wep or wap key.

      then itried to connect to next doors, to see if its the same and its asked for wep/wap key.

      i have been reading through these forums and it seems that allot of people are experiencing the same problem with belkin cards.
      mine is a belkin f5d7000 version 1

      i have turned all wep/wap off my router to see if it helps, still no luck.

      can anone shed any light to whether theres some kinda setting winthin the sky router that is not allowing certain cards to connect??????????????????????????????????????????? ??

      Re: wireless adapter wont connect to sky router

      The device you mentioned supports all the technologies the Sky Router has.

      Is the neighbours router also Sky?

      Have you tried your USB one in his computer - Does that work?

      What OS is his computer - What OS is yours?

      Re: wireless adapter wont connect to sky router **FIXED**

      it seems that the problem was in my router. i simply just pressed the reset button with a pen for 5 second with the router turned on and my belkin pci connects now.

      thanks to everyone at SKYUSER
