Hello.

 

I have a laptop. It has an build-in wireless network receiver, and then i have an USB wireless receiver as well. I has worked like a charm for years, switching between those two receivers when i need to. I has helped me trouble shoot and sometimes i needed to use the USB adapter for gaming and such. The problem is, recently the USB-receiver can not connect to the wireless network. It says, down in the popup menu, that: "The security information of the router does not corresponds with the information saved on the computer" or something similar. I have tried everything. I hope someone knows a tricky way to reset the whole thing or something. The security info does corrosponds. That is the weird thing. IM running windows 7

 

Thanks in advance!

Try removing the wireless network and reconnecting afresh.

Uuh i have tried that so many many times, haha. In the popup menu in Windows it keeps on saying the Security type is set to WEP even though i keep deleteing it and setting it up as WPA2. I have even tried connecting to the wifi with the USB-adapter from other computers in my house, and there is no problem...

I would search for the SSID name in registry and delete it. Don't forget to perform a complete backup of your registry. And be double careful when you're in registry.

 

(It should exist probably here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles)

 

(Try this only when the problem isn't fixed other way.)

 

UPDATE: You have to delete the folder including SSID name in the left pane, not only the SSID name in it. Sorry if I'm late. Like in the picture below:

Another thing you may want to try. If the USB dongle was plug and play the drivers were automatically installed. Download USBdeview and run it. With the dongle not attached run USB deview. Look for you USB dongle and highlight it. Select Remove. Reboot and reattach the dongle.

 

Edit: If that does not work, attach the dongle and right click it in Device Manager. Select Properties and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and post the first line.

Sorry I missed your post yesterday. 

 

The vendor and device ID point to a Dlink DWA-140. Go here for your driver. Pick your version either A or B and download the driver for Windows 7.

Hello have you tried this;  From the error you are getting sounds like a wireless profile issue please got to start and type network and sharing center then open that once inside look to the left hand side where it says manage wireless networks and click there.  Next look for the SSID giving the issue and remove it.  Now try to reconnect to that network re-enter your password and it should reconnect.  Hope this is helpful :grinner:

Have you tried running windows update I ran across a post in seven forums where someone had the same issue with that dlink device and it was fixed with a windows update.

Hello. Thanks for the replies. I went to the regedit and went nuts. I deleted all i could find related to this adapter. I believe i managed to delete something related to the driver or so. This left the adapter totally out of order. I then reinstalled the driver i had on a CD, which had failed all previous atempts. I made sure to install it to a different place on the HDD. This actually worked.
