Sorry, forgot to add some other info:
My computer is an Advent, using Windows XP.
The wireless network adaptor is an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network
Please ask if there is any more information you require. Thanks again,
I have a somewhat curious problem.
I use wireless internet at home. But for two days a couple of weeks ago, our internet was stopped. However, as soon as it came back, my desktop computer has not been able to connect to the wireless router anymore. This laptop (that I am on now) connects to the wireless box fine, so it is obviously a problem with the desktop.
When i click to 'View Available Wireless Network Connections', it sees my wireless box - a Speedtouch66D1DC, and when I click to 'connect', it asks me for my wireless key, which I type in, but then it never gets any further. It just fails to connect to it.
What makes this problem even stranger is:
1) The fact over 2 weeks ago it had no problem connecting to my Speedtouch66D1DC
2) The signal being excellent
3) My laptop having no trouble, and
4) My desktop having no trouble connecting to an unsecure wireless network, and thus it can't be a wireless receiver problem, as it can still access the internet remotely, just not from our transmitter.
I thought this might have been a spyware problem, but have posted a help post on a different forum (see link) to no avail: http://forums.digitaltrends.com/sho...66429#post66429
Any ideas on why my computer is not connecting to this specific wireless box would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,
p.s. - happy new year!
