Laptop wireless issue.
Guys i just bought the wifey a laptop of a mate, i formatted it with vista Ultimate x32 re-installed all the drivers ect but im having issues connecting to my wireless router.

The laptop is picking up my wireless connection but when i click my network name, Input my password i get the following message! ..... Any ideas?

My wireless router is a D-Link DIR-301

Her laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ60-100EA

Heres the message i get when i try to connect to my network on the laptop.

"View the wireless security settings on the computer to verify they are compatible with this network
If you set up or own this network, yiu might be able to fix the problem by changing the settings on the wireless router or access point to be compatible with the settings on this computer. Contact the network administrator "atojar"(me)or your hardware manufacturer for futher assistance".

Re: Laptop wireless issue.
Maybe you need to add the laptop wifi card MAC address on your router's MAC configuration settings.

Re: Laptop wireless issue.
is the router using any encryption?

if so try disabling it and seeing if you can connect to it.

try resetting the router to factory settings (don't worry you can back up your settings with D-Link and most routers anyway) and seeing if you can connect to it.

See if you can connect via LAN (physically plugging in) If you can connect via LAN but no wireless then you no it's either a problem in the wireless configuration or the settings on the wifi on your computer.

let us know how it goes!

Cheers for that, Never thought of it, I reset the router back to factory settings and went through the wizard setup. All working fine now. :D

Re: Laptop wireless issue.
you probably were running WPA2, and the older laptop didn't support that.

now that you ran the wizard it probably forced you to set WEP, WEP is the worst encryption, also cuts wireless performane for the entire network by huge margin.

best thing to do is replace that wi-fi card in the laptop for newer better one.
