Unable to connect to SRX 400

by PupChow / August 10, 2006 2:38 PM PDT

I recently bought a new dell laptop that uses an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card, but it always gives me the "Unable to Connect" error when I am trying to connect to my wireless (LinkSys SRX400). When I try to connect to a b wireless network area, it connects with no problem.

I turned off all the security on the router, but still no luck. I tried pinging local and it works, so the adapter is fine. I have also updated the driver for the network card to the latest version.

Any suggestion on what I should try next and what setting I should look into?

Try the usuals. Update the router firmware.

And then make it a warranty issue with Dell.

I found ou tmy problem with my srx400 was I was in a noisy area.

I changed the channel from 1 to 11 and everything connected fine.

IF nothing works then flash unit or reset unit to factory defaults.
