Hi people - first post to an excellent site. Been using your advice to sort out virus problem on my main pc with great success.
New problem - unable to get my laptop to work wirelessly for last few days. Have checked via limited start up using msconfig to ensure no trojans/spyware - then disabled windows firewall - then disabled security and finally it works.
Router is BT1800HG - broadband is with talktalk (surprisingly reliable and recently upgraded to 6Mb?) - recently reduced MTu to 1400 to overcome problem with webmail access. Using WEP - my laptop is Sony Vaio S VGN-S1XP.
Feel naked with no security - any ideas?

Thanks for the reply. No new phone or anything recently - tried restore (using xp professional) but it always says there have been no changes - do I have a faulty restore as well?
Why should it work ok unsecured and not using WEP? What is the WEP doing? Obviously my key is correct - 10 digit as on the base of the router.....

Yes i have tried that a number of times.
I mean I have set my router to generate an unsecured wireless signal. This means any one can log on to my broadband signal.......
