      URGENT HELP - Wireless Router Problem

      Hi There, First post, hope someone out there can help as its soooo frustrating.

      I purchased a PS3 on friday, had trouble connecting it to the internet but after searching the net found a way and now its fine. I connect via WEP and enter the 26 digit code.

      But....Since ive done this, my laptop fails to pick up the wireless and now I cant use the internet via laptop

      So...does anyone out there know what i've done? and HOW i can fix it? I think i may have to change the settings somewhere when going into properties?

      Thanks, hope you can help.

      Are you also connecting your laptop by WEP with the same code?

      Are you using Vista? If so, I think I may be able to already predict your problem.

      Okay; left-click the 'Network' icon in the 'System Icons' bar. Now click on "Connect or disconnect"

      Now right-click your network and click on "Properties" - Take a screen shot of the window that appears and show here, please.

      i.e.

      It's fine, can you change the security type on the drop down to WEP?
