Hi all,

I had previously posted a topic HERE regarding an issue I was having when setting up security on my home network. When I would try to set up any type of security on the network, my laptop would only get limited or no connectivity. If I removed the security via the wired connections router settings I could connect without an issue. I updated the firmware on the router and was then able to use WPA2 security...up until yesterday. Yesterday, I turned my laptop on and noticed the wireless connection had an alert symbol next to it...I looked and the limited or no connectivity notice was back. So, I again removed the security on the connection and could connect again with no issue. I'm not sure what the issue is, but I really need to set security on the connection because I live in an apartment...any help would be appreciated.

The host computer is running:
Windows XP SP3 Gateway Media Center Edition
with a D-Link DL-524 REVC router with 3.23 firmware and a Motorola cable modem.

The laptop is running:
Windows XP SP3 HP Pavilion Media Center Edition

Thanks,
Glenn

Download the latest drivers for your wireless card, uninstall the wireless from Device Manager, uninstall anything that has to do with wireless from Add/Remove programs, reboot and install the new drivers.

Thanks CaveDweller2...keeping my fingers crossed, but it appears to have worked. I updated the drivers and restarted everything and it connected to my network automatically when everything came back on. If it goes down again I'll post back, but hopefully the issue is resolved. Thank you again.

Glenn
