    how about waiting for the laptop to turn up and trying it before getting all bothered? :confused: i'd change the settings to wpa2 with aes (not tkip) encryption also.

    and i'm just wondering what speed you're getting now? because the bebox won't do anything more than about 10Mbps over wireless. :(
