computer settings do not match WLAN reqs

September 21, 2011 at 19:15:58
Specs: Windows Vista SP2, 2.00 GB RAM
With router #1 and with current laptop, I once had a wireless network named 1776.
Now I have router #2 and am using it with the same laptop.
I have configured my network using WPA2-PSK and have named the network 1776, just as I did with router #1.
When I attempt to connect to the network with my laptop, I get the message, "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network."
How can I resolve this?

It sounds like you didn't put the correct key in there.

Thanks for the reply.
Educate me a little bit.
I probably did not put the correct key in where -- in the router during the installation process, or in the computer's wireless security settings?

Is it possible that my problem is a result of having a previous network that was named "1776" and configured with WEP, and now having a network named "1776" configured with WPA2-PSK?
I would like to use WPA2-PSK this time around.

You get the following error: "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network." because you've changed your wireless network. In changing the encryption level (good choice, WEP is sooooooo easy to crack) you've now changed the WLAN itself and the existing profile on your laptop is no longer valid.

On your laptop, you'll need to delete that wireless network profile (1776) and then connect to the new WLAN and enter the appropriate connection information.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
