      Wireless No IP Help

      Hi,

      Ive been using my belkin notebook card in my laptop for a couple of days no problem. Got a good signal, no noise. But now i can only connect to the internet with the cable. When i try to use the wireless it cant find the IP address and there it lots of noise (havnt moved laptop, or router). Ive tried reseting the router but it doesnt work. Nothings changed physically since before the problem. Can anyone help me manually set up the IP, DNS etc? I know how to access the router with admin and sky.
      I cant think of anything about that could cause the noise. Ive also tried changing channels in the router.

      Andy

      Ive sorted this now. Ive turned of all of the router security and now it works, weired as it was fine for ages before.
      I have turned on access control though and this does work.
      So for all you peeps with IP problems/wireless problems it could be this.
      How safe is my connection with just access control now and no wep/wpa?

      Your connection is safe, however your transmitted/received data is now not encrypted and could be captured with malicious intent.
