I was not able to connect wirelessly with my laptop to my router. This I was able to fix. It took some doing and I am not sure exactly what fixed it: updating the firmware of router, resetting it. Somehow in the process I began getting requests for authentication. I have two different boxes popping up on the laptop requesting it every time you change sites or click on a link. I donít have to put anything in it just click on the X to make it go away until next time. I have tried a number of things to fix it but to no avail. I had been getting help at Tech Support Guy but they have about run out of ideas to fix this. Any help would be much appreciated! If you want to review what has been done go to:

Descriptions of the current problem and screen shots of the boxes are in post # 26 and 33.

Is this router an extension from your ISP modem? If yes, have you tried connecting directly to the modem and check if the dialogue box disappears?

There is no way to connect wireless with my ISP. And if I am not mistaken my connection with Comcast requires the modem. I donít think there is a way to even hard wire directly into the ISP. It is my laptop that keeps getting the request. My desktop is hard wired in and working fine.

This is so strange. Everyone over at the other site seems to be stumped. I am too. This even pops up when you are not trying to do anything on line.

Yes. We need to check first by hard wired connection directly from the modem(bypass the router and wireless)and disconnect the desktop temporarily to see if the problem persist on the laptop.
