Problem connecting to home network
Posted on 2014-10-07
Hi, I use Comcast for my TV and Wi-Fi. I have three XP laptops and one Windows 7. All was well up until yesterday when I took an XP to a computer shop to try and get an iPod to work. When I got home found out that my wireless network no longer worked because he had tried to connect to his wireless network and I don't know what else he did to it. He didn't fix my problem but did create a much bigger problem.
After several hours on the phone with Comcast, I finally got the Windows 7 running on the internet again however, I tried to set up the network connection on two of the Windows XP and the windows are different and I can't get either to work. I'll start with Windows XP Professional Vs 2002, SP 3.
Wi-Fi Protected setup Wizard window
To connect the following devices to the network, enter the device password. The password is either displayed or printed on the device.
Device ownership password - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
When I try to type the information in this box, I hear a sound for every key that I type but nothing shows up on the window except numbers. It's like it's telling me that that box is off limits. What can be disabling the box? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
