Need help adding computer to network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TG91aWU=?=, Jul 12, 2005.

  1. Hello everyone, I'm a rookie abnd could need some help adding my laptop to my
    home network.

    My situation: I have a AirPlus G+ 2.4GHz Wireless Access Point delivered by
    Dlink. I have broadband with a speed at about 2400 kbit/s connected to the
    access point. I have two stationary computers in a network which both have
    connection to the internet. Both of the stationary computers has one DWL-G122
    Wireless USB adapter each which connects to the access point. For my laptop I
    have a DBT-120 USB Bluetooth Adapter also delivered by Dlink.

    I have checked that the name of my laptop workgroup is the same as my two
    stationary computers. I have checked that my «Wireless Network Connection»
    has the same SSID and WEP and that all the other options are the same. When I
    start my laptop, a bobble in the bottom right corner pops up with the
    following text:

    «Wireless Network Connection

    One or more wireless networks are available.

    To see a list of available networks, click here.»

    I click the bobble. Under «Available wireless networks:» I see the name of
    my home network which both of my stationary computers are connected to. The
    network key is already typed in, and I click «Connect». Then I wait about 5
    seconds and the same bobble opo up and I am still not connected to the
    network, and hence I don't get connected to the internet either.

    Can anyone help me?

    Check the firewall settings on the laptop. If necessary turn off the firewall
    until the connection problem is fixed.
    If that doesn't help... turn OFF encryption at router and laptop. If you can
    then connect... you have some issue with the laptop security settings.
    Wait a minute. Did you say your laptop is using "Bluetooth" to connect to your
    network?

  5. By the way, my laptop is trying to connect to the network using a Intel(R)
    PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter. I don't know if that might help,
    but it won't hurt telling it anyway.

    I suggest you remove the bluetooth adaptor while trying to troubleshoot your
    networking problems. Bluetooth is NOT an 802.11 device.
