Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Wireless problems with windows vista

I just got a new laptop-a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista. I have no trouble connecting unsecured wireless networks, but I'm unable to connect to my own wireless network. My router is a Linksys WRK54G. When I try to connect to my network, after I type in the network key, I get the message "The wireless authentication settings on this computer do not match the requirements of this network." I know the problem is not with my router because other laptops are able to connect to it. Any suggestions?

    I just tried that, and there were no preferred networks to remove.

    Same problem, but with an Inspiron 1545 running Vista. Did anyone manage to fix this?



    Another Vista laptop connects fine. Router is set up for WPA Pre-shared Key TKIP security. Local DHCP server is 'enabled' as is 'Obtain an IP automatically'.

You just need to remove the preferred networks on your vista, follow this.
Right click the wireless icon>network and sharing center>manage wireless network>remove all preferred networks.click OK.
Then connect again to your network that should solve it.

Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista. It says no wireless connection found. Other computers are connected to internet. Says that is switched off. But no buttons were pressed to turn it off....

There should be a switch on the lower right side of the Dell Inspiron. That should click forward and backwards. Clicking it forward "turns it on", Clicking it backwards "turns it off". Let me know if it works!

I presume that Vista has just been installed and connecting wireless. Check if the Wireless switch is on (edge on the right side. IF no change, install the software driver that is on Drivers/Utilities CD that came with your computer. Please comment if the information has been helpful. Thank you and regards.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

If your laptop is still under warranty, installing WinXP will void the warranty. It's very tricky. I'd suggest getting another PC with Internet connection and search and download drivers as needed for your 1525. Good luck.
