Attempting to get my daughters Christmas present up and running before the big day, memories of setting up scalectrix etc are coming back to haunt me. The router is a BelkinFSD 7632 uk, the laptop has visa home premium and is able to see our network, I enter our security passphrase in the connect to a network dialog but get the message that windows is unable to connect!
Thank you both for your advice,when I checked out the site posted by dawood it mentioned MAC address filtering, I then remembered I had enabled this on our network! Found the MAC for the laptop added it to the router and all is now working fine.
