What you called a problem, might not
by Gakada / May 24, 2006 5:07 PM PDT

be a problem after all...

If you read the forum and/or search for your question, then there thousands of answer already given...

Most of them (the ''problem'') are due to lack of configuration (Firmware update, IP/DHCP etc.), security (enabled/disabled) and hardware failure (how you install/connect them up to broken hardware).

So, I suggest that you read/search the forum first...

When you get this error the first thing that you should
do is:
*Go to device manager
*look for network adapter: make that it is properly installed
*check if there is a security enable on the network that you are trying to connect
*if no security
*try to removed / reinsert the wireless adapter
*you may also restart your PC
*if security is enable
*make that you are typing the correct Passkey/password
*if you have done all this and you believe that everything is correct
*your last option is to uninstall / reinstall the software
