My laptop will not connect to my friend's linksys wireless router. I have used the intel pro wireless utility to configure the signal. My friend has given me a 26 character encryption code that I have entered. Her computer is connected wirelessly to this router with no problem. I notice that the configuration utility detects WEP as the encryption when I try to configure my computer but a 26 character code indicates that WPA must be the form of encryption. What should I try in order to connect successfully.
By the way, my laptop is using Windows XP. My laptop connects to the router but it does not get an IP address from the router and therefore I cannot access the internet.
Thanks in advance for your help.
