Problem with connecting my laptop to a network.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello. I received my new laptop today (www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834127453) and I am unable to join my home wireless network. I type in the correct password and it says that it is incorrect. When I plug in the internet cable to it, I can access the internet but it still won't join the network or home group. Any suggestions what could be causing the problem?

Make sure it's asking you for the passphrase and not the security pin (WPS).
Login to your router from the hardwire and make sure the password is in fact correct too.
You can also try connecting with a manually made wireless profile.

What kinda router is it? WEP or WAP? If WAP, then is it AES or TKIP? I'd say you should be using WAP - AES.

Just a quick one, if you have another pc connected to the network over wireless allresy make sure that all the settings are the same smile.gif (right click on the wifi icon -> settings look though every tab)

Tailing this you router may have a one touch set up for you to painlessly use smile.gif
