WPA on a hp ze4805us laptop

I cannot find a way to connect to WPA wireless networks. The windows wireless network connections only appears to let me enter WEP keys (which work fine on WEP secured nets), but I need to connect to a WPA network. Anyone know of drivers for the machine?

The ZE4805US contains the Broadcom or the LAN express wifi cards so dont expect a driver - the chip doesnt support the feature.

Hope this helps

I've had a ZE4805US for almost 4 years, and use a linksys wrt54gs wireless router. I use WPA encryption it works just fine for me. Everytime i reload the system with xp from the hp discs WPA is not in the options. The only thing i had to do to get it was do windows update + sp2. Then it's right there in the wireless settings. Hope this helps you out.

Teele27@comcast.netHow do I turn on the wireless connection on my HP Photsmart C6300 All-in-One series printer/copier?


Make sure you know the SSID or 'name' of your home wireless network as well as the WEP or WPA password to connect to your network before you begin.
1) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. It has a wrench on it. 2) Continue pressing until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . 3) The Network Menu appears. 4) Press until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.
Do one of the following: 5) Press the down arrow key to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier. Then press OK. 6) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested. Note : If your router uses 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the first one. 7) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup. 8) Then if you haven't already done so, install your software.
That should do the trick! Hope this helps!

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

I can not figure out how to get the computer to make a wireless connection.


Add the Home SSID to the Preferred Network List After you set the SSID on your home gateway, you may need to add it to your preferred network list if Windows XP Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled. (Although automatic configuration is nice to have, your IT department may have disabled it on your laptop in order to meet their needs. If they have, you'll need to use the tool provided by your laptop or wireless manufacturer to manually configure wireless settings.) To manually add your home wireless network to the list of preferred networks when Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled, follow these steps:
• In Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
• Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
• On the Wireless Networks tab, shown in Figure 3, click Add.
netw3.jpg
Figure 3
• In the Wireless network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 4, enter the SSID you configured for your wireless gateway (ExampleHome_g in this example.)
netw4.jpg
Figure 4
Note: Figure 4 assumes you've added the Windows WPA Client Update. If you haven't downloaded and installed it, you probably should. For more on the WPA Client Update, see Overview of the WPA Wireless Security Update in Window XP.
• Fill in the rest of the fields, including the necessary authentication and encryption information based on the configuration of your wireless gateway.
• Click OK and your home network will be added to the list of preferred networks.
Now, whenever you're at home, your work laptop should automatically see your home wireless network and connect to it.

New Vista laptop and problems setting up wireless


Hi,

Chances are the wireless portion of the trendnet software is not compatible with vista. I would uninstall the trendnet software or let windows control the wireless portion of it.

Check to see if you are using any encryption ie. wep or wpa or wpa-tsk. If you are then you will need to enter the network key in windows.

good luck
