Please help me understand a problem I had. I'll explain the problem and solution as clear as I can.
I had to reset my access point to solve a problem. Prior to the reset both my Desktop Vista OS and my laptop Windows 7 OS had wireless connections. After the reset, I had to re-establish the wireless connection on the Vista OS. I used the same Security key I had from the past.
I then attempted to do the same with my Windows 7. I was able to create the wireless network, using the same network name and security key as I had and used on the Vista OS.
The problem I had with the Windows7 is that it could not connect. The signal icon showed it was green and the signal was strong.
The solution turns out to be the wireless profile, which also changed the password, as shown in the hub's GUI. So, I was using the same Security key I used on the Vista OS.
The same security key did not work on the Windows 7 OS.
I don't understand why the "network password" would be changed. And it appears that the "network password" is the Security key, why?
I think initially I had to use the newly changed password, and while I was troubleshooting I deleted the Profile.
Why was I able to connect with the Vista OS, but not with the Windows 7 OS?
