how to remove lock on wireless network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?YnJpYW4=?=, Mar 29, 2006.

  1. i have set up many small office and home wireless networks, but this is a
    first. i have set up my office with a dlink wireless router and also hard
    wired every office. a few wireless laptops have no problem logging on to our
    wep secured internet. but this last laptop seems to log on with the wep
    password ok but wont access the internet. when you pull up the network
    connection status screen on the wireless connection you can see it trying to
    send packets but there is a gold lock on the computer symbol and nothing is
    going to the received packets, this is also happening on an older hard wired
    machine. the laptop is brand new could this be that the computers are not
    updated with the latest microsoft updates.

    The "gold lock" symbol means that the WLAN is secured.
    Does this give some clue?
