Hey everyone, I've got another networking problem i could use some assistance with. The wireless picks up the signal from the router but will not connect because of an error "Wireless authentication failed because of timeout". A run down of what I have done so far:
It is definitely the computer not the network because other computers can connect to it.
winsock and ip stacks reset
norton removal tool
install reinstall wireless adapter driver
deleted ~25 6to4 adapters
combofix

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

provided that your wireless network adapter is working, check if your computer is set to obtain the IP address automatically. Then try to connect to any other wireless network from your computer (if you haven't got any other network in range, you can try using smartphone to create the temporary wifi access point).

If you can connect to any other network, check the settings on your router and make sure that it does accept new users on the network.

Let us know how did it work.

Best of luck.

Yes its set to obtain ip address automatically, changing hotspots does not help still times out. Im going to try to change out wireless cards to see if that helps.
