Hey there! Windows won't connect on the wire less
Lets keep it simple and brief:
bough new pc, Acer E700 with windows Vista Premium.
Got several wireless adapters, Pci gigabyte, dlink usb, and netgear wireless
My Network router is a Dlink. I have five other computers around the house
connect though wired and wireless, all have windows xp. It is using WPA-psk
so no probs with the WEP vista incompatability.
I Can't get my dam vista to work on the wireless. The strange thing is it
works fine when it is wired. I can find the network, it can see it, it tried
to connect but always comes back with "windows cannot connect to the
Network". I tried to install and connect in a safe mode with networking in
case there was some firewall stuffing it up but still the same. I also
contacted dlink and they were no help.
I am at a loss. I don't understand why it would work with wired and not
Thanks for any help
