Have been unable to access home network over wifi on my phone (O2 Atom)
running WM5 since buying a new PC running vista.

I can only put in down to having something to do with vista - all worked
fine until immediately after syncing phone and PC for the first time. After
that, I haven't been able to access the web on my phone, Always show status of "available" even
after I removed all security settting on router (Netgear). My notebook connect it no problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If your Pocket PC was connecting directly to the router, not through your computer, I don't see why introducing a new OS would interfere.

I suspect there's another wireless access point around your place? This can cause interferences. also 2.4GHz cordless phones.

To start with, try changing the channel on your wireless router and see if it helps. Check this blog for some information.
