WLAN - Computer to computer network

March 14, 2010 at 06:27:02
Specs: Windows XP HE SP3
Each time I try to connect to my network(wpa2) I can only read it as a "Computer to computer network". The only thing that works is restarting the router.
Any help?

Had your computer been able to connect to your WLAN previously?

If yes, have you changed anything on your wireless network setup?

The first thing we need to try to figure out is, is it your wireless router or your wireless client that's the problem.

I know for sure it's the router. And I it is the same on any computer. I have tested 3 other routers and they work fine. I can connect to the wlan if I restart the router.

So problem breakdown:

-If the router has been on for a while the wlan is shown as a "computer to computer network"

-Restart the wlan or the router and the problem is solved until next time I need to connect.

Click on my name in any of my responses and read my "how-to" guide on "Troubleshooting Wireless Issues" and try the steps in there.

Ignore step 1 as you've already done it and know it works but only temporarily.

Step 2:
Can not find firmware for my router. I think my network provider manages that.

Step 3. Done that a couple of times now, it doesn't change anything...

Step 4. I have replaced it once with the same type of router, did not help. This is the only router available for my speed.

If you're using a combo unit (ie: modem/router/wireless access point) as provided by your ISP, then you need to call their support people and talk to them about your problems. There's really nothing more I can do I'm sorry to say.
