      Using inSSIDer, can you select the Edimax adaptor and see if you can see the Sky router?

      Next can you check the settings in the device settings/properties? It is possible that you may need to tweak them a little to get it working correctly.

      Finally, could you disable the security settings on the Sky router and see if you can connect to it?

      Re: Edimax USB EW-7722UTn 300mbs help ?

      Hi Scubbie, that's problem, I can't connect to the sky router because as far as my laptop is concerned the wireless n USB device asnt been installed correctly and won't work ?
      when ever I plug it in it try's to install and then fails, even when i select the folder the drivers are in, it gives me message sayings drivers not found please contact manufacture etc ?

      All software is installed but it just says edimax device not connected ? I am totally stumped

      Could you could try it in other USB ports to see what happens?

      Also, just in case, did you install the software before connecting it for the first time?

      Do you have another computer to try it with?

      Finally, is the USB port either USB1 or USB2 or USB3?

      Similar age to my own. You should have USB2 or 3.

      I have noticed that each of the 3 USB2 ports on my Laptop behave differently. One is good for external drives and is also an combined eSata port. Another works well with external ports and everything else. The third hates external drives, but is fine with USB memory sticks and a few other things.

      I would think about uninstalling the software and starting again.

      New drivers were released in April a few weeks ago. Uninstall the drivers, reboot and install these from here:

      download

      Third one down on the right OR download direct from here:

      Hope they work!

      Well done Launton, hopefully that may help.

      P.S. I've moved the thread to the correct section of the forum as it was in the Fibre section. This is more about the adaptor than the router or Fibre connection.
