      wireless n adapters not connecting

      I have recently moved my ISP to Sky with the Fibre option and a Sagemcom ST2504n router. I have now tried to connect to the router via 2 different usb dongles, a TP-LINK TL-WN823N (300Mbps) and a Dynamode WL-700N-MRT2 (150Mbps). Neither of these will fully connect to the router and do not provide internet connectivity. However a Belkin usb dongle using 802.11g connects ok with no hassles.

      Any thoughts would be extreamly welcome as moving to a fibre solution which is now being throttled by having to use a wireless g dongle is a bit pointless.

      Try changing the channel in the router. Download and use Inssider(link below) to find the best channel.

      Make sure the router security is set to WPA2-AES

      Thanks Tom

      That seems to have done the trick with the Dynamode dongle. I had default security of WPA/WPA2-PSK. Changing to WPA2-AES allowed connection although the router did then switch back to WPA/WPA2-PSK and kept the connection. Looks like the other TP-LINK dongle is faulty.
