      Acquiring Network Issue

      I need help please.

      When trying to connect to the router via wireless, I get the acquiring network status and nothing else. On checking the stats i am sending loads but receiving nothing.

      The router is setup in WEP mode I have even tried WPA but no joy. I can connect via Ethernet cable no worries. I have also tried to different wireless adaptors but no joy. ANY suggestions?

      I have seen this a couple of times at work. Removing the preferred network under the wireless connection settings (XP) and recreating the network, i.e. typing the SSID and WEP/WPA key back in again tends to sort it out. My two cents anyway.

      That did the trick - changed the network key to my own and full speed ahead. Thank you
