Hey all,
Just moved my room around and having some trouble with my PC's wireless card, it is active and shows the network that I need to connect to for my internet to work but when I double click it and put in the password it takes about 5 minutes trying to connect then gives up.
I have a feeling it keeps detecting then dropping the connection, it doesnt even attempt to connect to the network.
Used to have this problem as well but jut ran an ethernet cord to it, the wireless actually was working just before the move but now isn't. Pretty certain that it's my computer and not the router. Would be grateful of any help.. Let me know if you want more details.

(Running Windows XP)

I am thinking your wireless connection may be trying to authenticate with a certificate, try going to the link below and follow what it says.
