wireless connection will not save password for router after the pc is restarted

Hi Everyone,

           I wish to help a friend of mine with a wireless issue.  As I understand what he told me, his wireless connection will not save the password for the router connection if the pc is restarted.  I am not sure how to advise him on this matter.  As such, any feedback given to this post will be deeply appreciated.

            Thanks in advance for any help given.

Hello

            As I understand it, Windows XP is handling the wireless connection.  With that point in mind, could you provide step by step instructions for setting the password using the windows wireless connection window?  

            Thank you

Hi There,

              Just out of curiousity and my desire to learn more from this post, what would the steps be in the wireless connection is being handled by the "software" of the wireless card?

              Thank you.

Hi

           Just to reflect for a moment on your last comment, it sounds like your example scenario would be based on the wireless being "secured".  As such, once the password is entered which matches up to what is set within the 256 bit encryption of the router, ithe wirleless should then be able to retain this information regardless if the wireless pc is restarted or not.  Is that a correct assumption?

Hi There,

           Apparently, the confusion stemmed from the card itself managing the connection as opposed to Windows.  Your suggestions certainly got us on the right track.

           Many thanks once again.
