Default 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.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
