Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
Hey there. I just formated my IBM t40 and after I run all the up-dates including service pack 2 I try to connect to my romemates wireless connection (secured connection). The problem is, that it tries to connect without asking for the network key, and it failes to connect. An error message appears saying, that "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have tried everything I can imagine also in the properties of the wireless network and have no idears left. Before formating the computer I had no problems connecting to the network. Do you maybe have any idea of the problem?
1) If you are using the Windows Default Wireless Network Connection. Open the windows where you you will see a list of all wi-fi connections near by your location. On the left panel(Related Tasks) click on "Change Advance Settings" >> Wireless Network Connection Properties >> Click "Wireless Network" Tab >> from the Preferred Networks: list, remove the wi-fi connection you are trying to connect. Once your W-Fi connection settings are removed. You can either add it manually clicking on the Add button and entering all informaiton manually, or from the wi-fi network list click the network name it will ask you to enter the netowkr key....
2) if you are using any other Wi-Fi connection application, like the Intel's, follow the same procedure. delete the settings and try connecting again.
