Dodgy Supanet -supplied free wireless router

  yuknet 06:59 05 Mar 2007

My desktop connects perfectly with the router using an ethernet cable but fails to connect properly by wireless. After selecting the router from the available networks it takes nearly 1+ minute to announce "Connection Failed". The status at this point for the router's network is "Connected with limited access" or "Limited connectivity".If I try connecting to someone else's network (plenty to choose from) the connection attempt takes 2 seconds and asks me to "Type the security key or passphrase" but of course I would just have to have a wild guess at a WEP combination.I've tried running the Vista diagnostics but don't understand the acronym-laden technospeak that comes back. Anyone out there got any ideas as to what might be wrong with the router and/or its configuration/settings.
