    I have just finished setting up the old pc for my brother in law and have been doing so using a really long ethernet cable to my router for trouble free installing.

    I'm delivering this early tomorrow morning and only now did I think to test the Wi-Fi card that's in it and yup I cant get it to work.

    It can see my neighbours plusnet Wi-Fi network through the walls but cant see my sky network which is just feet away.

    Think I have a sky hub and the card is 802.11n and I think my security is WPA2 PSK.

    Any ideas?

    The card is a railink wireless wan card ver 2 I believe.

    Some routers use different SSIDs for the different bands... some use the same one for both.

    This one does exactly that but I set it up manually for 2.5ghz and 5ghz to see if it would stop the frequent WiFi drop out but alas it didn't and it's just sky's crappy hub.

    Now edge refuses to display most websites I try, managed to download chrome and that's doing the same.
