I have a Linksys Wireless Router, model WRT310N. My desktop is connected to the router by an ethernet cable with no problem. It is a Dell Optiplex GX620. I also have a Dell D800 laptop that connects wirelessly with no problem.
I have a HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop running with Windows XP that can only connect by cable, but won't connect wirelessly. It detects the network, but will not connect to it.
The connection is via DHCP. It is a security-enabled wireless network (WAP2). I switched to static IP with no results. The securty settings are perfect. Ran antispyware and antivirus. Verfied the IP address using the command prompt ipconfig/all and found the following: "Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 3: Media State....: Media disconnected". I also resetted the router to factory default. I updated the router's firmware. I also tried to repair the connection. I even replaced the wireless card thinking it was defective, but the problem is still there.
