but after step 4 it just says unable to connect/try to connect again?

it doesnt offer to enter the key or password.

any ideas?

Is this the first time you`ve tried to connect to the router? Does anyone else connect to the router from another machine either wireless or by ethernet cable? I presume the router is Netgear and encrypted.

the internet is used on another computer via ethernet cable.
yes it is the first time with my computer ive tried to connect to this WLAN.

the actual router is d-link,

Have you plugged in cable for initial setup?

yes tried that, but the first time i did it it didnt do an upgrade.
I tried it again and upgraded the routers software and now it works.

So thanks guys, problem resolved :-)
