      Another Wireless problem

      I've moved from BT to SKY in the last few days i've had 6 routers in all and found no problem with any of them to set up and use.
      This stopped when i changed to sky, i have the Netgear (Black) box to my main pc. My lab top using wireless (or trying to) but i keep getting cut off every 10 mins or so.

      I've read former posts tryed them all change passwords WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA-802.1x and tryed disabled also nothing changes. Turned on/off UPnP with no luck, my lab supports both 802.11g and 802.11b also i have tryed a D-Link wireless in my USB port but i sad to say that im getting no where fast.

      Start up logs on fine to my network then 10 mins into it its gone again requiring you to connect again when i do it says im not connected but i am using webs msn games extra till it goes off again.

      Signal strength full PC to Lab top 6 feet. Any help would be great thanks in advance.

      Re: Another Wireless problem

      Was easy i tryed everything i could think of in the end all it was is down to the sky password for the router being in upper case not the normal lower case.

      Tho im still have no idea why i could not connect with open network in the end just glad i have both pc's online

      Also try changing the channel from auto to one of your own choice.
      Imense improvement for me , from connection that would completely slow down after a while to a fast as you'ld expect.

      Slim
