      Vista wireless connection

      I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5310 notebook, with built-in wireless card. Have configured my router to WPA-PSK, and have enabled wireless access point. I've not used Vista before, and cannot connect to my wireless network. I am able to pick up my SSID, but when I click "connect" I get a message saying "the connection to Sky.... was cancelled - this might be due to timeout or user action". I've no idea what this means. I really expected connection to be very straightforward. I used to have my PC connected wirelessly using a Belkin dongle without any problems. Can anyone offer a suggestion for a solution? Thanks.

      Eventually remembered I'd enabled mac code filtering at some point in the distant past - am now connected!
