Cannot connect secure wireless on L7300 laptop

Postby morris8cars » Mon Jul 27, 2009 3:04 pm

I have an urgent problem on my L7300. I can connect via ethernet fine and also wireless providing I set it to "OPEN" network but as soon as I set my router to encrypted (WPA) and input the key it fails. (changed key no different) I have tried a different make of PC and it connects fine. My Router is a Thomson 585v7 on Plusnet and I am running XP home on my Amilo L7300 laptop. The error I see is "connecting to network" then it times out.
I have tried changing the port from 6 (default) to 4 or 11 but no difference. It must be somthing on the laptop I think.
Please advise as I cannot use ethernet as located in different room and I don't want to use an open network :(

Did you already try to upgrade the wireless driver?
Which wireless software do you use to connect, the one integrated in Windows? If so, do you have at least SP2 for Windows XP?
