wireless with sky

We have just signed up with Sky broadband. The desktop PC connects fine but the laptop refuses point blank. We questioned the dongle that came with the laptop with PCWorld where we bought it, they tested it in the store and it worked first time. We get it home and nothing.
Please help, what are we doing wrong or not doing at all?

We will need more information like make and model of router, is the desktop connected by wire or wireless and anything else that you might think be relevent

There's a long thread on this in Consumerwatch, look around 29 Sept.

Lots of people, lots of trouble

Is wireless enabled in the routers interface i.e. 192.168.0.1 It's under Wireless settings and there should be a tick in enable wireless access point.

Yeah. Should be fine. I have one, they're great! I reckon the settings are wrong.
