Problems connecting wirelessly
Posted on 2008-06-10
I just bought a laptop with vista hp on and cannot get it to connect to my wireless router. the broadband was part of a sky package, and even though my laptop can see the router, the connection cycles through
'acquiring ip address' to 'security-enabled network' to 'connected but with limited connectivilty', and ocassionally 'connected' but very briefly before starting the whole process again. ive tried unplugging the router, removing the device in vista and trying to get it to recognise it again, i even went as far as doing a system restore in case a vista update had upset anything but nothing works. the thing is that my 8 year old laptop that this laptop replaced, is having no problems whatsoever connecting to the SAME router with xp. i thought it might have been a faulty NIC but if it can see the router surely this is not the case.
is there anything i am missing or anything i can do to solve this problem? any help is much appreciated.
