Hi, the problem I have been having is that I am trying to connect to my wireless router (speedtouch 580). When i search for wireless connections in range it often finds it and it has a strong signal but when I connect to it it wont connect. It doesn't say anything it simply tries to connect to the network then stops, it doesn't get as far as acquiring network address, I've tried restarting both my laptop and the router but its the same. If anyone can help me it would be great. Thanks
Log on to the your via an ethernet cable. Disable any encryption. Disconnect ethernet cable and try to connect via wireless. If you connect okay disconnect the wireless then re-connect with cable and enable encryption with a new password. (Try using WPA if you can, WEP is broken) Disconnect cable and try wireless again.
If all else fails I would suggest you reset the router to factory default settings and try the above again.
