Resolved Question

Fritzbox wireless help

by Rohojo / July 22, 2011 3:02 AM PDT

I recently moved to germany and was given a fritzbox router with the Internet service package. My wife's MacBook works on the wireless network, but my PC does not. It recognizes the signal and says it's connected to the wireless network, but it only can send packets and not receive them. Please help to resolve this wireless connection problem, thank you!!

Try WPA or better yet WPA2 next.

Thanks for the help R. Proffitt, I am on WPA2-enterprise, but still no luck. The other option is WPA2-personal, but that requires a password which I don't understand...

WPA2 Enterprise.

For that I suggest support from who told you to use that. Hope they can fix that.
