    Hi everyone,

    Bit of a strange one, one of the pcs will not connect to the wireless on my home network since i moved it to a different room.

    it is a fresh install of windows XP (Legacy apps, I wouldn't do it otherwise) and when it was in this room it connected correctly, It use to connect in the room it currently is in fine okay (a couple drop out but nothing serious)

    However now it see's the wireless connection, requests the password tries to connect and fails every time, anyone here had an experiance with such an issue:

    Specs:

    XP (Fresh install) - Wifi is old belkin MIMO G usb card

    Router: Standard sky router (I hate not being able to change it!)

    Hope you can help

    DT.

    Have you removed the wireless network from the list of saved networks? Might just need re-adding. No logical reason for it but it's worth a shot and I've seen it work in the past.

    It can be changed and I've never had a complaint from Sky for doing it. I'm currently using a TP-Link and I was using a Netgear for a long time before that. They are changing the way their network works though so it may not be possible for much longer.

    download the latest drivers for the belkin if you can, belkin adaptors well known for not connecting to wireless on old drivers
