Luckily I had access to the router and it was set to limit connections to 5 wifi connections.
It was not a PC issue.
PS. You keep writing XP. XP can't do WPA2. XP SP2 can.
I have a small office network. I had to reset the network password/key and now I can not get one of the laptops to connect to the secure network. All other wireless devices connect with no problem. The network is available and has a 5 bar signal strength. When I select the network, I do not get asked for the network key. Instead, there is an attempt to login and shortly thereafter, I get an error message saying "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again". As stated above, the strength is at 5 bars and all of the other wireless devices are connected to the same secure network I am trying to connect to.
I have manually a?ded the network (SSID) and network key and still can not get this laptop to connect to the secure network.
I am able to connect to several unsecure networks in the area but not my secure one.
My question is, how do I get Windows to stop trying to login without asking for the network key?
Last note: I have even tried uninstalling all the network adapters in hopes of resetting so that windows asks for the network key. This also failed.
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!!!
