      Philips USB Wirless Adapter to Sky Router No internet

      I recently received my Sky broadband box. I already had a Philips USB Wireless adpater. The Adapter has recognised the router and the PC says that the network is connected. But, I cannot get access to the internet.

      What is likely to be causing the problem? I spoke to Sky technical help and they were not much help. In fact they were pretty useless and ended up saying that there must be a problem with the router so are sending a new one.

      One thing that did not work was typing in the 192.168.0.1. This just came back with address not valid.

      Any help, advice or other guidance gladly received!!

      Use the network cable and connect that way initially to log onto the router... I am having issues with the WPA cos I think my built wireless on my laptop only supports WEP. Thanks to this site I found the admin login for the router.... thanks guys...

      Yeah, that is what I wanted to do but I was trying the default Netgear login which is "administrator - password".... I see from this site that it is infact "admin - sky" on the netgear... will sort it out tonight, my line goes live tomorrow so that will be crunch time !

      Re: Philips USB Wirless Adapter to Sky Router No internet

      I posted the original question but have now Internet Connection. Played with the windows wireless zero configuration settings and this did the trick.

      I had to connect wirelessly as I have no ethernet port on PC. A further question, is it possible to change the supplied 8 digit WPA key to a longer more secure, and possibly more memorable key wirelessly? I have not played with the settings, yet, too much as I do not want to lose my hard fought connection.

      Just to finish this off, I have now uninstalled the Phillips software, kept the driver for the USB adapter and let Windows manage the connection. No problems at all now and managed to change the WPA key via the wireless.
