      Wireless Help!

      Connected up to Sky broadband last week, for starters the set up disc wouldn't load, so i have set up manually, email and net working OK, although trying to log on to my email initially was the biggest pain i have encountered in my Internet history,
      anyway the only thing i cannot get to run is my Edimax USB wireless dongle, it worked fine with my old orange livebox, but despite plying with the settings, it just keeps disconnecting from the router, Netgear DG934G can't seem to find a reason, it finds the router and registers 100% signal but just drops the connection again, any ideas??

      Lots of views but you've posted in the wrong forum - the Asking for Help forum is used to "Ask for help with routers and configuration utilities not supported by Sky" as stated under the title.

      Can't help you with your dongle problem but it might be worth trying with encryption turned off first to see if that's the issue. As for the set up disk, don't bother. It's not needed unless you want to install McAfee and don't mind your browser messed around with.

      Thread moved to the wireless forum.

      Re: Wireless Help!

      Had another play around with the router wireless settings and the only way i can get it to stay connected is to run it with no encryption, yet the same dongle settings worked fine with my old Orange Livebox?? any suggestions?

      Re: Wireless Help!

      May not be WPA compatible. Did you try turning the encryption on the router to WEP, generate a key, apply it, give it to the pc? Also try changing the router channel (same page as the network key) and apply it as you may have someone near you that is using the same channel.
      What happens if you try to connect on WPA? Does it accept the network key at all and are you making sure you only use capital letters and no numbers when inputting the WPA network key?
