Question about Gateway 4026GZ Notebook
I am having a problem getting a wireless network connection because I believe my Data Encrytions do not match. On my desktop I have it set as WPA but on my laptop it's set as WEP. I wnet into Wireless Network connection and clicked properties and it will not let me manually change this. Please Help!!!!
Hiya, first thing you should check is that your wireless card/usb on your laptop actually supports WPA. I changed to WPA and 3 out of 5 of my laptops could not log on. Took me an age to find out what was wrong. Try changing back to WEP on both units. If they can both log on then see if you can try to borrow a wireless card that you know supports WPA, change back to WPA settings and see if new card works. Don't even assume that new cards/usb's are all WPA compatible. Friends was bought in Nov and isn't able to run WPA.
