Hello, we've been having trouble with out Wireless Sky. It was working fine up until, all of a sudden the wirless keeps dropping. It will stay connected for about 5 seconds and then it won't have an IP address. It will work if you click repair and whilste it is renewing the IP address it will work. After a while it will say that it can't renew the address and then it will not work. I have tired disabling the the DHCP setting and typing the server in and then it will connect, but the web doesn't work. The hard wired connections work, but the two wireless connections dont. Any idead?

Try changing the Channel number in the router's wireless settings in case something on the same frequency is interfering with the signal.

If you want to use a fixed IP address it must be a unique one in the same subnet (IP address range) as the router. For example, if the router's IP address is 192.168.0.1 then you could use something like:

IP address - 192.168.0.25

Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway - 192.168.0.1 (the router's IP address)

DNS Server - 192.168.0.1 (the router's IP address)

Just ensure the third "octet" (number) in the IP address is the same as the router's.
