Wireless Network problem

  cliff100 16:32 17 Dec 2009

I have a Netgear Router supplied by Sky

Currently I have my XP PC connected to this via cable, my wifes Vista laptop connected wirelessly and also my daughters Vista Pc wirelessly. All are working fine, I have got my son a laptop for Xmas and wanted to have this set up on the network and all virus software added before he takes it out of the box. I have searched for available networks and found ours I have entered the security key and it connects for a few seconds and then loses connection. So far I have not been able to get on the internet.
If it says it's connected and then drops off what could it be ? Or has anyone any ideas on what i should check. I will try to connect this via a cable tonight once home to make sure it works at least via cable. Any help would be appreciated.

All sorted now I should have thought about it a little I checked my settigns on the other 2 wireless computers and mirrored them all works fine now. I should learn that to check first before asking for help.
