Cannot connect to my available network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGF2aWQ=?=, Nov 18, 2004.

  1. I am using an HP ze5300 w/ a built in wireless nic. Running Win XP Pro SP 2.
    My router is the Linksys WRT54G I have 64 encryption and shared key turned
    on. I may also note that I have three other laptops that work fine with
    these settings. On the HP, however, I can see my SSID network listed as
    available, but cannot connect to it. I have tried turning off (WZC) Wireless
    Zero Config. to no avail. I have turned off my firewall settings, tried
    changing channels on the router, and event set up MAC filtering.....still
    nada.

    I don't think it is a SP 2 issue, because I was having the same problem
    before upgrading, and I have all the latest driver updates and router
    firmware.

    I was kinda hoping that I would be able to find a third party software that
    I could use in conjunction with my built-in Lan Express NIC and in place of
    WZC....for some reason I am leaning on Zero Config being my trouble maker.

    Any thoughts or advise would be most appriciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Have you considered that it might be a hardware issue on the HP? If you
    have a spare wireless pc card, you might try that in the HP and see if
    you can connect. If you can, you know there's a problem with the
    built-in hardware.
