|Issue: When attempt is made to connect to a wireless network a message comes up that states that it was unable to connect.|
History of system.
(I have 4 laptops (vista 32,2 XP, Windows 7 64 bit system)
I have two phones) all of which, wirelessly connect to broadband internet through a Belkin router.
I purchased a compaq laptop, and attempted to connect wirelessly, and it stated "unable to connect". After working with their tech support, they were unable to fix the problem. I took it back and purchased an Acer laptop. It has the same problem.
Their tech support said to take it to a public wifi and let it connect, and it should work fine. I took it, it connected, i brought it home and it still didnt connect.
Ive tried many things, I made my network unsecure, ive enable security at different levels, Ive changed channels, Ive made sure that DHCP settings and values are correct in IPCONFIG.
I know that most Public network require some sort of validation, through a browser. Most private, do not requrie anyhting an it lets you direct connect to internet.
I have called Belkin, Ive spoke to the ACER people. I need some assistance because the laptop works fine on a Public network, all my other equipment works fine on my private network. Furthermore, when you connect an ethernet connection to this laptop, it works fine. Only wirlessly, does the problem exist.
