Have you added the new wireless stick to those the network is authorised to see? Have you ensured that the password on the new key is set up correctly?

Yep done all that and have ensured that passwords are correct. Tks

silly question but have you looked in control pannel at Internet options to see what your default browser is.

This information may help if someone has the same equipment. I am using a Belkin USB adaptor and have just checked it out and it shows my wireless network as strong but has a red line with yellow warning triangle inbetween the router and computer and the same from the computer to the internet. Am running the same USB on another computer with XP and have no problems. It currently has IE6 as it has not had chance to connect and update yet. Does anybody have anymore suggestions what I should do next
