Vista ultimate 32 not connecting to wireless

I have a laptop - HP pavilion dv6000 with vista ultimate on it. When my router was unsecured the laptop connected to it just fine, but now that i added security (WPA2-PSK), it stopped connecting.On the laptop, I have already removed, and added again the network with the new security settings but I keep getting the message that the security setting are not compatible. I put in the right key and the setting are correct but vista will not connect to the network. I've noticed that the IPv4 on my laptop is now in the 169.254.0.0 - 169.254.255.255 range while the other computers and the router are in the 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 range. Any idea on how to make things work again and keep my router secure?

169.254.x.x IP suggests that your NIC is not communicating with the DHCP server of your Router. Try disabling/enabling the NIC card and in the TCP/IP properties, make sure that the IP address is configured as "Bobtain IP address automatically"
Also try installing the latest drivers for your NIC card.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

I dont know my WEP Key of my network im on. it is the wireless network in my house im connected to on this laptop


Press & hold the reset button on the router. It's very tiny & you may need a paper clip to do it. They're usually located near the power jack. Hold it in until all the lights go out,then release it. This clears the wep key or password. Now you can get on the network. You'll need to use a pc that's wired to the router to put a new wep key in & password,unless you just want to stay unsecured.

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....

Were you offered any chance to back up settings and files?
Upgrading Win is normally pretty safe with more than one opportunity to save the previous version & setup and/or a restore opportunity.
I doubt your files have been overwritten; they are probably still present unless you were offered and opted for, a reformat of your HD.
There is probably a D: partition on your drive; it may be hidden, but gain access to it to see if you have a recent folder that refers to the previous installation.

Wireless adapter


check the ettings on the router have not been altered. the chance of 2 wireless cards failing in the same time, on different pcs is very small, more likely the settings that allow connection in the router, the item common to both, have been changed, reinstalling the router has no effect on user settings,
WEP, encryption, MAC controls are all possible suspects, if there has been any change
lock down the router,
many wireless networks are unsecured at the router so that any person driving past can access your router and alter it, default security settings should be changed the day you turn it on
