I'm trying to connect an HP Compaq 6910p laptop with a Broadcom 802.11a/b/g WLAN adapter (driver version 188.8.131.52) to an ASUS WL-500gP router with WPA encryption. I tried updating to the newest drivers, but to no avail.
The wireless network always appears in the list of available networks, with excellent signal strength. (I'm only one room away, and even tried setting my laptop directly adjacent to the router.)
The listing does _not_ list '(WPA)' as the other WPA networks do.
Several other computers, both desktops and laptops currently connect to this router without problem, and this one did connect to it, but has ceased to do so for some unknown reason. This laptop can connect to any other wireless router quite easily, and is currently doing so.
I have tried disabling/re-enabling the wireless card, updating to and rolling back from the newest driver, uninstalling/re-installing the wireless device, deleting everything out of the preferred networks list, manually creating a profile for the desired network, and searching the registry for the network name and the network key: all to no avail.
The error I receive after a bit of time while waiting to connect is as follows:
"Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again."
I never have the option to enter the network key.
I look forward to your thoughts!
PS: I wondered if my computer is somehow saving the settings in some unknown place for this network, and hence is confused, but I can find no such thing. Is there a way to officially clear all wireless network information from a computer?
