Can't connect to WEP-secured network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Gustaf Liljegren, Dec 21, 2005.

  1. I got a WEP-secured WiFi network in my home, which I normally use for my
    desktop machine. Today I tried connect a laptop to this network, but
    Windows refused to connect. I remember I had the same problem with
    another laptop earlier. Obviously, it's not a problem with the network,
    since I'm using it every day.

    What happens is this: I check the list of available networks, and find
    my 'GL' network. I connect, and Windows asks me for the WEP key. I type
    it, and wait for 1 minute while Windows tries to connect. Then the
    dialogue disappears without any message, and I'm still not connected.

    I tried to set up the key manually by creating a network in Prefered
    networks in Wireless Network Connection Properties. I've check all the
    settings there, and they are identical to the desktop computer. What
    more can be done?
