      If you set static you have to specify DNS servers. Did you do this?
      Service recovery 02392 899292

      You got 3 right!
      D'oh! Not good, dude.

      I used to be on a wireless network through BT and switched to sky. I was using a netgear router before so expected to have little trouble switching over.

      I have triud fixed IP and DNS addresses which is the only way I can get connected to the router via wireless.

      I have not found any help anywhere on this subject.

      If I change the settings to auto detect IP it never connects, just states aquiring ip address.

      Is there a fix for this please, someone must have an answer

      thanks for any help you can give.....

      Fixed

      Managed to get mine up and running.

      Heres how....

      The network key must be typed using the correct upper and lower case letters. Also if you use fixed ip addresses then use the following for the DNS IP....

      87.86.1289.16

      and thats it!

      Hope that helps?

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      With WEP, the wrong password tends to look like it's connected but then can't do anything, not even get an IP address. I don't know about the WPA stuff but it may also be the case there. Network keys are case sensitive so whoever mentioned that up above may well be on to something.

      Hi,

      I was getting a similiar problem, my usb wireless adapter was only occassionally picking up an IP address. On the occassions that it did pick up the IP address, it was not able to display any web pages. The strengh of the received signal was only around 25%. I have two machines and one was able to access the internet without any apparent issues. I changed the Channel on the router from 6 to 3 and immediately got over 70% strengh and immediate access to the web.

      Andy
