Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2 GHz / 3002 MB
I just recently a NETGEAR Wireless N-300 router WNR2000 v2, I set it up and it works perfectly with my computer, the wireless works with my PS3 and the Wifi works perfectly on my iphone as well; however, when I try and connect to the Internet on my laptop, I find the network, I enter the passkey, and after a while it says it takes too long to connect and that it is connected to local only, and not the internet. Can anyone help me connect to the internet?
Thanks in advance

What encryption are you using? Some NICs don't support WPA. Try to get it to work without any encryption first.

It can't be both. Which is it?

oh sorry I meant that when I set it up, I set it up so that both WEP/WPA2 were compatible (that's what I got from the setup), but on the laptop itself, it is WPA2- Personal with a AES encryption type

Is your wireless network G+N? Maybe your card is just G and not N compatable.

well if it wasn't compatible then it wouldn't have detected it all, correct? it's being detected and it's connecting, the problem is that it's not connecting to the internet

If it worked without the encryption, then your encryption is the problem. Try WEP first. Does it work with WEP?

There might be some compatibility issue or you're missing something in the configuration.
