      Question Wireless connection problems

      I have been using a Belkin wireless router with BT broadband now for a couple of years with no problem. Since getting my Sky router it will work fine when connected directly to my pc via network cable, but when trying to connect wirelessly it connects for a few seconds then I lose connection.

      If I am within a few feet of my Sky router with my laptop there is no problem more than that it will connect for a few seconds then it won't connect to the network. I am using a belkin usb wireless adapter could this be the problem????? Help!!!

      Is the wireless security setup OK?

      Try turning wireless security off on the router to see if it makes a difference.

      Yes tried turning all security off. Signal strength shows good to very good but still will not connect unless within a few feet of router!!
