I have an established home wifi network that I've been using for a couple years and connect my laptop to this network daily. Today, my laptop could not connect to this network. My laptop "sees" the wireless network, but there is a red "X" next to the network's name. When I click on this network there is a message stating:

"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network".


I have not changed any settings to this network, so I'm kinda stumped.


My iphone can connect to the network.


I'm running Windows 7 on a Lenovo laptop.


Any help appreciated. Thanks,

Well, I figured it out...

Just went to Manage Wireless networks, deleted the network and then reconnected.


All seems fine.
