    Its boggled my mind for ages, and since I've just recently tried again and it still won't work I would like to know what i'm doing wrong.

    I go through the procedure of putting in my router details, wep key/password etc and it keeps telling me my service doesn't provide the correct connection. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Do you have the correct security enabled on your router? It's that or you're gonna need the Nintendo USB dongle (Which is still a huge PITA to get working).

    I can only guess and say yes I have the correct security enabled as everything else connected to it (router) works PSP, Xbox 360, laptops etc.

    I'm thinking you don't, actually, as it uses the shitty older security type. If you do then you are prone to easy leeching :(

    Sorry I can't be more helpful, I was just told, quite bluntly, that I should buy the dongle and not risk our home network from attack by assholes :(
