Can't connect to Sky wireless

  djror 17:37 13 Sep 2008

Have moved into new house, and 1 laptop started working absolutely fine on Sky wireless broadband. Tried to connect mine, and it connects and gives the connection speed, data sent/received etc, but it keeps saying something like acquiring network address. I've tried everything in my limited computer knowledge and now it's got very frustrating! anyone shed any light on it? cheers.

Did you plug the laptop in first with your cable then search for your network,before going wireless?

No i haven't tried that yet, will have to buy a cable and try it. The other laptops connected straight on no problem, and they're both much older than my current one so bit confusing!

Its is allways recommended that the initial connection is wired.
Have you solved the problem?
