      Cant access net via wireless connection please help.
      My laptop recognises the netgear 0681 modem ok.

      I'm not sure what you mean by 0681 modem.

      Usual advice is log in to the router (see Sky CD help files) and turn off wireless security temporarily. If that restores connection look at whether you applied the passphrase properly to the adapter.

      Re: Netgear DG834GT Wireless connection probs

      I meant the netgear modem DG834GT . The wireless adapter and the router are communicating OK (my sky netwrok is automatically recognised) but I cant make the wireless connection, it just hangs with ''acquiring netwrok address''.
      I've tried changing security settings WEP etc but no luck.
      I am using Acer 5100 laptop, Win xp sp2, wireless adapter: Atheros ar5005g.

      Re: Netgear DG834GT Wireless connection probs

      Access your router home page and under wireless settings there is an option (from memory I'm at work at moment ) to allow access for trusted wireless stations only. If this is enabled then you will have to check the tickbox next to the mac address and click on allow. You should only need to do this once for any additional pc you wish to allow on your network.
      Ps please dont duplicate posts - We understand you need help but it just clutters up the forum.
      Cheers

      ps re q from your other post - flashing the router would not help

      this useful link explains it a bit better than my attempt
