WEP/WPA Key / Network Key...Cant connect !

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SGVsbG8sV2lyZWxlc3MgaXMgQW5ub3lpbmc=?=, Sep 20, 2005.

  1. There is probably an obvious solution to this, but my laptop will not connect
    to the wireless network because it requires a network key. I thought I would
    not need a key to connect but thats apparently not true, Ive tried creating a
    new conection and manually entering a long network key to no avail. Does
    anyone know if I can tweak something on the desktop that is hardwired to the
    wireless modem, or is there something I must do to the laptop? Any comments
    would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    This really depends... is the wireless router yours or not :)
    If it is your's, simply reset it's key (WinXP wireless network wizard can be
    handy here). Otherwise you stay outside :)
