Wireless Computer Help ARGHHH

Ive got a 23" frame, 26" wheel GIANT Rock Mountain Bike....

I have a wireless computer, the problem i have is that it doesnt want to work properly.

I fear, that from the size of the frame, that the receiver wont transmit it far enough to the computer, i can bring the computer nearer to the receiver, and picks it in, but when i slot in its cradle, it wont pick it up, i have tried everyting.

Because the spokes are bending away from the middle and away from the suspension fork, so the magnet and receiver are about half way up the fork, is this too far away.

Please help me, im going mad, this cost me 30 and i really want to get it working.

Cheers
Adam

What kind is it?

I had that problem. What you need to do is try to put the reciever as high up on the fork leg as you can. You should be able to wiggle it over closer to the spokes to pick up the magnet. (this is where I need to know what kind yours is)

Its a Halfords one...

The magnet on the spoke cannot be shoved out anymore. The receiver on the fork is packed out with plastic [that i did my self] to move it furthur up the fork, as the spoke goes away from the centre [bottom of fork]...

Hope you can help me...

Cheers
