I have a ibm thinkpad laptop, connected to sky wireless broad band. When on the internet I keep having to repair the wireless network although there seems to be no problem, when repaired I am able access the web. Any ideas?

Any other wireless networks nearby, cordless phones, microwave in close proximity to router? Try changing the wireless channel, 1 6 or 11 recommended. Is your laptop set to obtain an IP address automatically, and which version of Windows?

Hi M8
Not sure where to find if the IP address is set to auto. The windows version is XP. Not sure how to change the wireless channel. Absolute beginner!!
Cheers
