Can't Connect to Internet on Wireless - Page 2

Yeah, removing encryption allowed me to connect. This post is actually from my computer. I guess I'll just leave it unsecured for now. No biggie I suppose.

I'm pretty sure I had it encrypted last time I was home and it worked fine, but I didn't have SP1 yet, so maybe that did something. I dunno, whatever. My neighbors aren't close enough to mooch internet anyway.

Sorry I hadn't replied, I've been at work all day. One thing you can do with a network that you leave unencrypted is that you can choose to not broadcast the SSID. Meaning, that when your neighbors scan for wireless networks, yours will not show up. This trick is only works on the non-internet savvy, however, as they usually do not go poking around looking for hidden networks.

You were definately not typing in the key right. Make sure you use WPA/TKIP and setup a password then, and try again. The default channel will be around 6, or so If I am correct but you can change it and if you are using vista, just right click the SSID name of the router and change it through settings and you can change the password through there also.

I tried typing it wrong on purpose and it came back right away saying that the code entered was not correct. I don't think it is me entering the key wrong, that's about the one thing I am sure I'm doing right.
