The router is connected via cable to the computer I am using here. The one
I am trying to use has been working fine until I recently reinstalled
Windows then didn't know what type of wireless adapter was in there so
opened it up and looked it up and now have the drivers installed.
It is WPA/PSK encryption and I am certain of the key.
The latest situation is I have it 'acquiring Internet address' then
disconnected with signal strength varying between good and none.
I know I've been here before with PC's at home and spent weeks trying to get
them going then never worked out why they suddenly started.
