Select from the computers default internet networks, Recent computers are wireless enabled as the prefered networking. Attempting to introduce another network would share the connection capacity to any availabe signals. decide on the network type required. Pick wireless and disable the remaining networks to achieve an express signal reception and transmition.

9. Check the option 'Use Windows to Configure this Wireless Connection' and click 'OK'.

Now please perform the following instructions to connect to the wireless network:

Asus EE PC Issues with Connecting to a wireless network.


You may have a bad wireless card. Just having it see the network is only telling you that the card's recieve function is working. However I have had many bad wireless cards that will see a network and not be able to connect. The fact that you can get others to connect indicates your network/router is working fine. If this is a new pc, I would contact their tech support. If you have a usb wireless card, you could try that and see if the problem pc works with that, which would tell you definitively that
the other wireless is bad.

Belkin Wireless notebook network card question


From another user on Fixya..

"you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.

Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled."

give it a try, might help. Rgds,

IT DOESNT WORK OUT


Sounds like your wireless is disabled.

If your using windows xp, check the following.
Go to your start menu
go to your control panel (might be under settings, might not.)
from control panel, if it says "Choose a Category" click switch to classic view.
open your Network Connections Icon.
If "Wireless Network Connection" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

In Windows Vista
Go to the bottom right hand corner of your screen to the icons.
Right click on the double monitors (network connection)
Select Network and Sharing Center
Click on Open Network Connections
If "Wireless Network Connections:" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

If it is enabled, and you already have wireless built in to your laptop, then it's possible the wrong wireless card is enabled. If this is the case, when you open your network connections, you will have two Wireless Network Connection Icons.
A Wireless Network Connection, and a Wireless Network Connection 2. Make sure 2 is enabled, and the first one without a number is disabled.

Let me know if this helps.
