I am using WinXP SP2

I have a BEFW11S4, currently I have 5 users connected using wireless and its working fine.

I got a new laptop and tried to connect to the router but it prompts "wireless network not available please try refresh you network" when I click on my SSID.

Normally for new setup it will just prompt for the WEP key and its done (it works for the rest of the 5 setups before)

Therefore I bring my laptop to neighbor to test, I successfully log in to his wireless in less then a minute (that means my laptop is ok)

What could be wrong? Does this BEFW11S4 have a limited user problem?

Check if DHCP is anabled on the router.
Then check how many DHCP clients are enabled, it is possible that the setting is for 5 only, and the 6th one is not ablw to log on due to this limitation.
A good way to secure the wireless network as this one is to go the Static IP way, and add the MAC addresses of the laptops to the MAC address filtering table.

I have check.

1. Restarting or shuting down router
2. WEP
3. No MAC Filter
4. DHCP is 1 to 50

No luck.

By the way, how many users can a wireless router take in?
