Hmmm, I didn't mean turn everything off, just the Router, only for 10 seconds. However, if you still have no joy, I can only suggest that you try this question in the Networking Forum, probably get more response.
A few questions first , what are you connecting to the router with , is it a laptop ? What wireless device are you using , PCMCIA , USB , built in ? Are you using the software provided with the wireless device ? .
its a built in laptop Prism 802.11g adapter. i have downloaded the correct drivers from the manufacturer of my laptop so am using them.
it used to work before i installed the bt broadband help disc. i unstalled that and the bt wireless connection program and now my standard windows wireless connection reckons that it isnt congfigured to control the connections.
i restarted the wireless zero program and clicked the box that recommends that windows configures my wireless connection.
this still doesnt explain why i can connect for a short period though.
