Wireless network establishs a public network connection
I am unable to connect to the internet with my Windows Vista Home Premium HP
Laptop dv6449us with a built in Broadcom b,g,n wireless card. I am also
running Windows Live OneCare as my firewall.

My network configuration is a as follows. I have a wireless Broadcom b,g
wireless/modem router provided verizon. I installed a Belkin fd5d8233 N
routher as an access point.

Broadcom Rounter is 192.168.1.1, 255.255.255.0
Wireless is turned off.
DHCP Range 192.168.1.15 - 192.168.1.99

Belkin Access Point is 192.168.1.2, 255.255.255.0
Security is 64bit WEP

My xbox 360 connects wireless to the Belkin with no problem.
I have 2 HP laptops same model. I was finally able to get one to connect,
but not sure how. I recall making 2 changes. 1st I disable IPv6 in the
network properties, 2nd, I customized the network from public to private. It
seems to be working fine after a couple of days. The same setting changes
don't fix the issue on my other laptop. The network wont even connect after
changing the profile from public to private. Any suggestions?

Re: Wireless network establishs a public network connection
Hi
Your network should be private.
Make it first working with No security.
Only when it works switch on the Wireless security.
If your components are WPA compatible use WPA, Not WEP.
From the weakest to the strongest, Wireless security capacity is.
No Security
MAC______(Band Aid if nothing else is available).
WEP64____(Easy, to "Break" by knowledgeable people).
WEP128___(A little Harder, but "Hackable" too).
WPA-PSK__(Very Hard to Break).
WPA-AES__(Not functionally Breakable)
WPA2____ (Not functionally Breakable).
Note 1: WPA-AES the the current entry level rendition of WPA2.
Note 2: If you use WinXP and did not updated it you would have to download
the WPA2 patch from Microsoft. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357
The documentation of your Wireless devices (Wireless Router, and Wireless
Computer's Card) should state the type of security that is available with
your Wireless hardware.
All devices MUST be set to the same security level using the same pass
phrase.
Therefore the security must be set according what ever is the best possible
of one of the Wireless devices.
I.e. even if most of your system might be capable to be configured to the
max. with WPA2, but one device is only capable to be configured to max . of
WEP, to whole system must be configured to WEP.
If you need more good security and one device (like a Wireless card that can
do WEP only) is holding better security for the whole Network, replace the
device with a better one.
