    I'd take a look at the config of the router. I'd be very, very surprised if that router didn't at least support 802.11G.
    Have done, I've got a choice of 54g Auto, 54g Performance, 54g LRS or 802.11b Only.

    Why do Sky make it so ****ing difficult to do anything?

    They provide you with a ****ty 802.11b router, which doesn't cover the house - even when it's right in the middle; don't give you the PPPoA details so you can use your own router (hell, they even put it in the T&Cs that you can't use your own router).

    Protip: Don't get Sky broadband.
    I'd look to see if there's a way of getting into the router to retrieve those details...

    Have done. There's an online tool that didn't work and that's all I could find.

    You might be able to telnet into the thing. You can with my crapp3h O2 Wireless Box, which is a rebranded Thomson.

    Sagem [email protected] 2304.

    Biggest piece of crap router I've dealt with. And I've had some real **** ones.

    Doesn't help that Sky force it upon you either...

    Urghghghhhhhhhhhhhh.

    I wanted the Air and now I kinda want the Transformer. But I can get a 20% "discount" if I buy the Air this week.

    What do?!
    Not sure TBH. Transformer looks very nice, although I'm still a bit skeptical of Android as a tablet OS (not that I've used it anywhere near enough to judge).

    That said, have you guise seen this article? Very interesting setup, kinda makes me want to try it. :awesome:

    You'd be apocalyptically stupid to buy a MacBook Air. :lolwut:

    Quick look at Lenovo site leads me to think they're quite unattractive laptops.

    Also I think it'd be redundant to get another Windows computer. Hence why I'm mainly considering an Air or Transformer.
    You wanted functionality? What can be more functional than a Thinkpad.

    Go for the Transformer Prime.

    Nope, i use it quite a lot for finding out what is going on in terms of student societies, photography related stuff and for posting a tonne of photos.
    I use a chat client for google talk, msn and facebook chat so i dont have to look at the facebook site all day.

    I can't get on Gmail/Plus/Docs atm.

    On Chrome it simply doesn't load at all.
    On Firefox it throws up certificate verification errors :erm:

    Any ideas?
    If you're on a dynamic IP then forcing a new address might fix it, somehow.
