ok ive finally got my wired connection going between my laptop and linksys router and woosh gateway .i can access the internet but ,when i try the wireless connection i cant access the internet???

im connected via secure connection to the router thats all working ,but cant access internet ,what should my tcp/ip properties be? should they be automatic or should the ip be the router , gateway be the woosh gateway and the dns settings be the same as the gateway??

im having real troulbe here might be something so simple i'll kick myself ,anyone know??? ,im sure i accessed the internet using unsecured wireless before.

The easiest way is to have all settings automatic on your device. If it works when connected via wired ethernet then it should just work when connected via WiFi.

If not, you should check that your device is actually connected to the AP. Make sure the AP is not filtering MAC addresses, and make sure there's no interference from other AP in the area - perhaps change channel settings on your router to see if you can connect.

Oh! and also have problem connecting my N95 to my WLAN- used to be able to do so before- says unable to connect-invalid PSK (tried checking and rewriting both in paraphrase and in hexadecimal form) same problem. Again i think there is something very simple- just have to go through steps. Should be a good learning for me as i'm just a newb.
