I reall need some help with this issue. Here is a link to my open question.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Notebooks_Wireless/Q_20959853.html

I have a Toshiba Pro M15-S405 with built in Wireless. When WAP has no WEP, it connects fine. When I enable 64 bit WEP, it shows I'm connected, but I'm not.

Thanks for the help!!

Yeah, the key is the same. Contacted Toshiba and they had me download the latest drivers but that didn't help. My only option was to disable WEP and I settled for MAC filtering.

perhaps  on one system the key is set as ASCII chartacters and the other is hexadecimal, check both to make sure they are both the same format of password for WEP. Mac filtering is better anyway, but if you can get both to work then you are pretty secure.

are you connecting to a router, does the router have stealth SSID enabled?

The old question has been deleted. Do you detect the network? Are you using XP's zero configuration? Do you have another driver you can use? (My LinkSys came with a driver, and sometimes XP will not connect unless I start that network monitor. I can the close that software and the WiFi continues to work.)

Have you tried to repair the connection? If it shows you're connected, do you have a valid IP address?
