      Sagem f@st 2504 - cant connect wirelessly

      Hi

      got my sky broadband on Thursday. Hard wired connection to router is fine but cannot connect wirelessly - can see the router but wont connect - get an error stating that windows gets no response.

      Have tried the following: Reset router/reboot laptop. Disabled wireless security. Mac Restriction is off, disabled my anti virus and firewall. Changed security settings (new password/security type). Nothing works! Also tried old laptop with XP installed but still no joy.

      Run out of ideas now and fed up with having a cable trailing across the floor! - grateful for any advice as patience is wearing thin now!

      Thanks

      Are you using Windows to manage the connection or the user interface/utilities which came with the wireless adapter ?

      Re: Sagem f@st 2504 - cant connect wirelessly

      ive had this router for about 3 months now and have exactly the same problem, Ethernet fine, Wireless pants

      Yesterday it started flaking out, connecting to the wireless intermittently

      Today, the wireless is even more intermittent and will connect locally only, no internet traffic, and this is intermittently.

      Os: Winxp Pro, Windows Vista, and Mac OSX

      Im not sure if its a bodged firmware update or what, but luckily i have a spare router i can use, the old v1 i had replaced as that used to connect and reconnect renewing the iP when you maxed out the connection on usenet.

      Very annoying as you had to disconnect from usenet as it thought you were an unauthorised user.

      so, 3 months on the sagem with heavy use, i wish they had given me the new netgear one now, instead they went for the cheaper French option.

      this is also not the only problem i experienced with the sagem

      It likes to disconnect at random hours, when you are browsing around, it takes you to the setup page, once reconnected you can continue browsing as normal, rather annoying.

      I hate sagem products, their phones and freeview boxes are pants too.

      Now Billion routers, when i was with Uk-online i never had a single problem with them, Solid as a rock.

      Rant over.

      Try a different channel - I can't fault the Sagem for wireless.
