Wireless Card Not Connecting to Network

Specs: Windows XP Pro

Hi, my Belkin PCI card seems to have messed
up and is refusing to connect since my old
router was replaced by the current one DLink
DIR-615 from Virgin Media. My computer now
finds the network (WPA-PSK enabled) but
cannot connect even after passphrases are
supplied.

I see that a few people with similar problems
were asked to supply the results of their
ipconfig and thought it might be helpful to
supply mine below.

====================

C:\Documents and Settings\BL>ipconfig/all

====================

I might just mention that other computers do
connect fine with the network so the router is
seemingly not at fault here.

I have also heard somewhere that
passphrases are interpreted/encrypted
differently with different makes so am
wondering whether the Belkin and DLink
products are compatible, although I do not
have much experience in this subject area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
a lot folks.

You could be trying to connect to the old wireless network you used to have with your other router. Delete the old wireless connection name from the old router and scan again for the new wireless network from the new router.

Make sure your pass phrase is correct.

Maybe if your savy you can reconfigure your new wireless router with a totally different network name (broadcast SSID) and connect to the new connection.

Make sure you download the updated drivers for your wireless card from the manufacturers website first as well updating your OS (SP3 and others).
