      Red face Wireless Problems

      So I just got sky broadband today and I can connect fine via my laptop but I can't connect on my PC.

      I went into the router settings and noticed that it only supports 802.11b & g.

      It looks like the wireless device in my computer is 802.11a.

      Am I right in assuming this is why it won't work?

      If so is there any way to get it to work? I've read a little about the usb wireless adaptors but i'm not sure if that would solve the problem?

      Any help would be much appreciated!

      Thanks

      Re: Wireless Problems

      It may be that your device needs WEP enabled instead of WPA security. What happens when you try to connect using the wireless now? Does it refuse the key as not the correct length?
      What sort of PC is it as most desktops are not wireless (Laptops and netbooks normally are) and what is the wireless device in it?
