Cannot connect to a WiFi station using my wireless adapter

by ravimandal47 / November 18, 2013 7:41 PM PST

Hello guys,
I have a Affix AF-WI511 wireless adapter. I bought it to connect a WiFi hotspot to connect my PC with internet. My wireless adapter can connect to other router having WEP as encryption and even the router left unsecured. But it cannot connect to the station which is unsecured. I have Windows 7 PC. I can easily surf to internet with other router but cannot connect to the WiFi hotspot station even I am getting full strength. I have tried many WiFi hotspot station but I failed each time but can easily connect to other home using routers. The station which I want to connect has 802.11 n standard and my adapter is 802.11 b/g. But the other WiFi station are of 802.11 g standard though I cant connect to it. It says "Windows is unable to connect to the network"

Please help me. I am in real dilemma. Sad
