      Nokia N96 wireless connection

      I hope I'm putting this is the right section........

      Can anyone help with instructions on how to connect the new Nokia N96 wirelessly?

      The Netgear DG834GT router is connected to the PC with ethernet cables (as well as being connected to X-box, PS3 and goodness knows what else!)

      We got the phone to search for wireless connections and it then asked for the pre-shared key - this is where I'm being more than a bit thick - I've been into the router settings but I've not got a clue which number is the number I should be typing into the phone as the pre-shared key.

      I know it's probably really simple to do, but simple, I am!!

      Any help much appreciated before something gets killed!

      Try the key on the card that came with the router, or if you look on the label under the router.

      And type it in using caps, there are no lower case letters or numbers in the default key thats on the card. If you have changed the key at any point you will need to check in the wireless settings page for the current key, it will be listed in the area of the page that has WPA-PSK, WEP and Disabled as options.

      Thanks all.

      I've not seen my brother yet to get him to double check this - could be that he didn't type the key in capitals.

      He's just donated his N95 to my mum, so I'll maybe try with that first - that way he won't be able to have a rant at me if I can't get his phone to work!!!

      Fingers crossed for me that I can get this thing going.
