      Router and Adapter Connection Problem

      Hi

      Please bear with me if I sound simple but a computer whizz kid I am not

      I have just had broadband installed this week. The Engineer (for want of a better word) did not do the best of jobs but thats another story. I have now managed, with the help of customer services, technical support etc. to get the speed of my connection to a normal broadband speed.

      I am now wanting to connect a second computer to the system. I have a Linksys WUSB54GS-UK adapter. I think I have managed to set up a wireless network in that I have got a network name and briefly a connection from the adapter to the main router, however, the connection keeps dropping out.

      First of all, is the adapter I have compatible with the sky router?

      Secondly, are there any specific settings I need to use?

      Any help, hints, tips etc. would be appreciated.

      Thanks

      Your best bet is to call Linksys at 08000261418 they should be able to help you out.

      Sky can let you have a netgear usb adapter for 20 or so which most people find works out fine, there are no settings required apart from WAP or WEP password that is on the router when you set the adapter up from disc. I used a card in my laptop for a more stable connection rather than usb connection. There are a few posts in this section about using the most efficient adapter for wireless.
