D-link WiFi router retains old SSID passcode

D-link / Dsl 276ou

Specs: Windows XP Professional, 3.00 GHz - 2 GB

I have a D-Link DSL router.

I enter my ssid and network authentication WPA2-PSK and data encryption - TKIP and the password that shows with the dots is obviously my old one, because it's shorter.

After getting a message saying, "username and passwork don't match" the connection gets made.

The next time I reboot I have to go through the same procedure.

Any help would be much appreciated.

"The next time I reboot I have to go through the same procedure."

Are you re-booting the PC or the router?

I suggest in the XP client machine you delete the wireless connection from control panel. re-boot the PC and discover the router all over again.

Are you broadcasting the SSID from the router?

Thanks for the quick reply Richard.

I meant rebooting my pc because I didn't think there was any router problem.

I'll take your advice and let you (and others) know what happened.

I wasn't broadcasting SSID but I've now made it visible so that I can see it, because otherwise I was unable to log in.

It's an old system but is OK for visiting friends and family ;-)

I deleted my wireless network which I discovered has to be done by deleting the drivers, and it also has to be removed from the "preferred" connections list.

When I rebooted, the system found and installed the dongle with no problem.

I set up my connection again with the new password, went to available connections and connected to my SSID after being asked for my password.

AFTER the connection was made, I again got the message ...

User name and password do not match. "You provided (My SSID)".

And then when I go to choose a network, my SSID is not showing.

But I'm still connected.


P.S After I rebooted again, my connection was listed in available networks but I had to enter the password to connect.
