Unable to connect 2nd laptop to wireless

I am running windows XP and my wireless works perfectly. I am trying to connect a second laptop running Vista, which did work fine and then stopped. I have tried reconnecting using both the Wizard and manually and both computers say they are installed, but the Vista laptop cannot see me as a Network. When I ran a diagnostic it said the Vista was not authorised. Don't know where to go next.

Had to get an IT guy in who changed my settings from a WEP to a WPA. Seems to be working OK at the moment. Thanks everyone for your help. Unfortunately I am not an expert so please don't ask me for help.

    Here is a update on your problem...If your not broadcasting your network (ssid) Type or into the address bar. This brings up your routers sign in window. You will need to know your admin name and password ( default ). you will need to go to your wireless setings and look for ssid broadcasting and enable it. next go to your internet conection and add your net work name and setings and then refresh and look for wireless net works. ect ect ect

I have a laptop running vista ultimate 32 bit version and i am having problems connecting to the internet. It says I am connected but will browse the internet. Are the troubleshooting steps the same as...

The steps are the same though the menus and screens you go through to do them are a bit different from XP. Pretty much all the software steps you can do are covered by the troubleshooter in vista and 7 though, so if you have ran that without a solution, then the likelyhood that it's a setting in windows causing the issue is fairly low.

First I would confirm that your connection is actually working. If you are attempting to connect the laptop with wireless it is not uncommon for routers to stop responding correctly to wireless clients, or even for the wireless portion of a router to die while wired connections still work perfectly. Try plugging the laptop in with a wire and see if you still have the same problem. If wired worked but wireless did not, then unplug your router, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. Retry the wireless and if it still does not work then a replacement router will be required to use wireless, though you could get a second cable and use it wired until you do replace it.

Hi, my WNA3100 Wireless adapter does not work with windows 7, tried reinstalling the drivers and it still does not detect it, tried in my laptop wich has XP, works perfectly. How can I resolve this...

I did this and it worked for me.

*do not connect device to computer yet

**uninstall any previous versions of the software

1. run WNA 3100 v1.1.3.22 setup in normal mode, do not connect device when it asks you to

2. restart computer and boot up in safe mode (hold F8 after turning on comp before windows logo comes up)

3. once loaded in safe mode, connect wireless device, let windows install it

4. once done, start computer in normal mode

At&t wireless router and magic jack setup

It could be the router which is giving you issue. Press and hold the reset button for 30 second and this makes the configuration to go back to its previous settings. The reconfigure the router with a new SSID and security key. Try connecting to the wireless network, the computers will consider it as a new network and will connect without any issues

3 failed attempts to connect HP DV6t laptop

First as a test, turn off the wireless security, and see if the laptop can connect.

If it can connect with security turned off, then it is likely that you are making some type of mistake with the password. (Such as caps lock being on, or having a keyboard error.)

Good Luck!

If the laptop is working then your router is probably working correctly. Is the desktop wired to the router or running wireless?
