Problem with Vista connection to wireless network
Posted on 2011-03-10
The customer has a small office with a couple of XP laptops that both connect easily to his wireless router, which is set up with a 10-digit WEP key. No problem.
Now they also have a Vista laptop that they want to connect. I can see the SSID with no problem, but every time I try to connect, it tells me I have to enter additional information, and then goes on to require a login name, password, and domain name--as though I were trying to tie into a domain-based network--which we definitely are NOT trying to do. It never asked me for the WEP key like I had to do with the XP-based laptops.
Where is this coming from? How can I connect this Vista laptop to the router using the WEP key like normal? TIA
