Question about Gateway (802.11usb) Wireless Adapter
Hi, I have had a gateway T1631 notebook, MS Vista, (with Realtek RTL8187S wireless adapter) for about 6 months now and only recently I have been having trouble connecting to my home wireless network - my roommate has a mac and has no problems connecting to the home wireless network. The home network is a secured network (WPA Personal, secured network with a 16 digit alphanumeric passphrase). I have no trouble connecting to unsecured wireless networks. However, when I try connecting to the secured home network it does not work. As far as I can tell, the passphrase does not seem to be saving properly. When I change passphrase to the 16 digit alphanumeric, it reverts back to an incorrect +/-8 digit code. I have tried removing the network connection via the control panel and then re-entering the passphrase but this does not work either. I am unsure where the problem lies and any help would be MUCH appreciated!!!
