      Cannot connect wireless

      Hi, i have connected over ethernet fine, however wirekess not working:

      - Wirekess card (Linksys Wireless g)
      - Router = sky netgear standard issue
      - Wirekess card sees router
      - When trying to connect it sticks for a while on Aquiring Ip address then disconnects and this becomes a loop.
      - Wireless settings on router are:
      - Channel 11
      - WPA-PSK
      - Data Encryption - TKIP
      - Device is enabled on access list of router with mac address of wireless card

      Have tried seting wireless card settings manually, gets connected but can't browse?

      Tried the sky guide:

      Changing to Auto108, channel 6 etc.. No Joy?

      Wireless card definetly works as i have been to wifi hotspots and previously had wireless working before switching to sky!

      Any ideas????

      turned wpa-psk back on same problem - wireless would not connect.

      Turned off security - connection was back.

      For now i have disabled the ssid broadcast.

      I guess i will have to play with diffrent security settings unless you have a recommendation other than the default wpa-psk?

      Will check for replies tommorow.
