Are you using your Sky BB connection to post here? If so, how are you connecting to the Router at present?~Computing today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning~

????? How have you switched off the security without a lead ????
Also, to add to the confusion, check that Internet Explorer, under "Options" "Connections" "LAN settings" that all tick boxes are CLEAR.

@ onejlr. It's all getting a bit confusing. Can you be very specific and answer the following:
1. Can you log into your router (192.168.0.1) via ethernet cable
2. Can you surf the net via cable
3. Have you logged into teh router and switch off all wireless security
4. Can you log into your router via wireless
5. Can you surf wirelessly (with WPA/WEP security).

Maybe its time to have another go with a fresh head tomorrow
All the clues are in this thread but you must slowly do what has been suggested and then compose a single response.

What about the one that came with the router?
Okay, so we can assume that the WPA security is still on. so we'll try to fix irt without.
Go to your router and look on the bottom, there is a sticker with a network key.
Use this to try to connect to the router when it asks for the key (ie'view available networks' and your SKYxxxxx should be listed, double click this and enter the network key off the sticker)

Did you get this working in the end, if so what was wrong?
