    Make sure you have entered the ENCRYPTION KEY not the security name or number you use to access the router if you have it secured. It should look like
    2rt6dpvc7hg1ghrw or similar.
    Also set the MTU to 1492

    Best of luck and don't give up....it can be done

    Thanks, i've managed to get connected by switching off the security on my router and it works fine. Unfortunately, my new problem is that when i switch the security back on, i can't get connected again. Does anyone know a solution to this?

    In response to the comment about the USB WiFi dongle and for anyone reading this and considering getting one, bear in mind that these things can be really, really unreliable. I own one which I am currently using to connect to the internet on my Wii and DS (until I get my router working). However, the Wii and DS cannot connect simultaneously, and whenever I take the dongle out of the USB socket or turn off my computer the WiFi Connector program refuses to start up again, the only solution being to reinstall it.

    So, it's far from the best option. Sorry if that was overly off-topic, but it should be helpful to somebody
