I have just received a new Talk talk broadband router  and tried to point my Windows XP old Pc to it as i have always had before via an old Edimax 802.11g Turbo Wireless Lan Hi-Gain USB 2.0 Adaptor. I have messed up the settings after it kept saying that i didn't have the authorising certificate.
After hours of frustration i removed the software driver supplied on a CD and re loaded,
It still does not work it just keep saying that the connectivity is limited or no connectivity and the router connection keeps dropping out.

When i am asked to put the network key in i try and input the numbers supplied by Talktalk in which is 8 letters/numbers it says that it must be 10 hex
I think it is because the adaptor is not talking to the route correctly
I am ready to throw the whole thing through the window can you help please..................
