I must be old fashioned but my repeating setup is like this.
1. Latest firmware.
2. Enable SSID broadcast.
3. Enable WPA-PSK and choose a password.
1. Use the wizard.
2. Supply the password.
Never a problem. There are those that disable SSID or use MAC filtering so we have to wait for them to come around and try what works for us.
OK here is the problem, like 5 months ago my dell computer crashed. The HDD went to hell so yesterday I decided to fix it and I brought a new HDD. I was able to reinstall the windows and everything is working fine now. So now when I try to connect to my wireless signal which is protected it takes me through these series of steps. I never had to do this before all I did was put in my key and that was it. I have a Sony Vaio and when I want to connect to my wifi I just put in the key and it connects I don't do any setups. This is what happens when I want to connect to someone else protected wireless signal....and this is how it happens on my vaio, and I put in key and done.
And here is what happens when I try to connect to my network.
SO now I select my network.
Now its supposedly connecting to my network
And then this happens
I tried going into the Dlink router properties and putting this password they provide into the "ADD WIRELESS DEVICE WITH WPS" and it asked for a PIN, and I placed in the password and it was scanning and nothing happened, it said it could find the wireless device. SO has anyone had something like this, its extremely annoying I just want to put in my Key and log on, not go thro 4 million set ups...so If anyone knows how to fix this please help!
