      Exclamation Netgeat DG834GT wireless - Broadcasting but no connection!

      Problems started 3 days ago with the router continually rebooting itself although it has never exhibited this in all the time I've had it! Got this sorted out friday with the help of T3 and as far as i was aware everything was now running ok..
      As i'm connected to the Router through ethernet I assumed it was all back to normal yet Unfortunately, it seems the wireless has now decided to play funny buggers and the 2 other PC's in the house now refuse to connect to the Router!

      Wireless signal is being broadcast and the Router light is on. I have spent all afternoon attempting to get it sorted & an example of the few things I have tried:
      Different channels
      Different modes
      All different security settings (from disabled to WPA-802.1x)
      Turning off anything that broadcasts on the 2.4-5ghz frequency

      Still nothing!! Secure or Unsecure, nothing is able to connect to the Router unless hardwired (i.e. through the ethernet).

      Tested all wireless cards including setting up each pc as "ad-hoc" to allow the others to connect (again, with various security settings). Each passed with no problems and all PC's were able to communicate with each other on numerous setups.

      Spoke to Sky earlier and they seem unable to do anything! Argument being that as the Wi-Fi signal was being broadcast & the Wi-Fi light is also green on the Router, everything must be working Router side and it must be something else causing the problem.

      I have plugged in my spare Router and yep, you guessed it.. It's fine. All PC's were able to connect wirelessly, decent strength and using various configs were all able to stay connected. Plugged "ye Sky one" back in and nothing!

      **edited bit**
      Ok, rang Sky back up & they're sending out a new Router.

      So I'd recommend to anyone else experiencing simlilar problems to myself is to try exploring as many causes & solutions as possible before calling & also list what you have tried when speaking to them.. For me, this reduced how long i was yapping on the phone for & does make their job a tad easier. Also saves on repeating any steps you've tried
