      Wireless connection help!?
      Sep 29, 2011 12:36:33 am
      Me and my 3 housemates have just moved into our new house in Liverpool. Earlier today we had delivered a virgin media/netgear router.

      Now my 3 mates have all got their wireless connection up and running. Myself however, I am having to put up with using an ethernet cable directly from the router to my laptop due to not being able to connect wirelessly.

      What the other 3 did was type in the "Passphrase" whereas I typed in the "WPS Key" which may or may not be the issue? (I'm useless at this sort of stuff)

      When I unplug my ethernet cable, I am left with full signal "local" connection. However I cannot browse the internet at all.

      Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I should do from this point in order to connect wirelessly to the internet? I've wasted the entire day trying to fix it but with no fecking luck!  :f_steam: :mad:

      Try different USB ports.

      Also, try different encryption. Ask your friends what encryption they're using (i.e. WPA-PSK, WPE, WPA2, etc).
