Question about Intel 2915ABG 802.11a, 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Laptop cannot connect to router with WPA-PSK security

My laptop has Intel 2915ABG wiless card. I have problem connecting to router using WPA-PSK encryption. The authentication is successfull but shows "Acquiring Network Address" over and over again so it seems it cannot get IP address. It was working for couple of days after installing Windows SP-3 but again stopped working after I restarted the computer after couple of days.

Here are the details:

Computer: IBM Thinkpad Z60m
OS: Windows XP Service Pack-3 (didn't work with SP-1 at all but worked for few days after installing SP-3)
Wireless Card: Intel 2915ABG driver 9.0.4.37 or 9.0.4.39 (tried both)
Encryption: WPA-PSK AES/TKIP (tried both)
Routers:Linksys WRT150N and D-Link DI-624 (tried both) set with DHCP

No problem connecting without encryption or WEP encryption.

    Thanks much for your input. I have ensured that password is correct since I am copying password from the router configuration directly. I was also watching the router log when connection is attempted and I see "Authentication Successful" message every time. Also as per windows documentation, "Acquiring Network Address" status comes after the authentication is successful.

    I have exactly the same problem also with the same hardware Lenovo Z60m an Intel 2915ABG Wireless Adapter

  • Anonymous Sep 30, 2008

    I have the same problem. When I try to change password to other one problem is still unsolved

  • ConorCahill Dec 29, 2008

    I have this problem with WEP. I swapped the card with the same card from another laptop. The problem moved with the card (so the first computer was now able to connect without re-entering the password and the second computer now can't connect with WEP, but does connect without).



    So, clearly this is a problem in the card. time to replace the card for me.

What I believe here is you are not typing in the pass-phrase(wireless password) correctly.

Go to 192.168.1.1 log on to the router ,in wireless section you will find the pass phrase,, create a new one and then try to connect.

Cannot connect tablet - authentication problem


Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop/tablet.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Sounds like your network card is outdated, I would first go to the sony website go to support and downloads and enter the model of your laptop check the list of drivers and see if there is an update for it. If not identify your wireless card in device manager and go to the web site of the manufacture and look there for a driver update. Just curious did you hit the set up button on the router, its looks like a symbol of a lock, If not strike that button and try to connect, it shouldn't matter if your running wpa-psk or tkip I believe aes runs with psk for older adapters. If all else fails, the next choice you have is to replace your wireless card in the sony or change the security settings in your router to good old fashion WEP and generate a wep key,,, No were near as secure as wpa but it should work.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

Wireless internet access


Mandy,
The password is a WPA Shared Key. The secret key will be shown in your routers security or advanced or network configuration page.......if you forgot the key then the best alternative will be to reset the router
you could simply create a new WPA-PSK and then setup each machine again that needs wireless access to your network.

Will not automatically connect to network. Must reconnect manually each time.


Did you put in The 26 digit code from your router? I know you need to have all computers on same workgroup , and the 26 digit code in all of them on your network, I think if you make sure, of those things mentioned above it may continue to work for you, I sure hope that gets you by your problem Thanks

Intel Pro Wireless 2200BG problem or Linksys BEFW11S4 problem?


I had the same problem. If you are using the latest driver for your intel 2200BG (9.0.4.7). Try to roll back to a previous version. It solved my problems with being unable to connect to a Linksys BEFW11 router running WEP64.

I am now running driver version 9.0.1.9
