I am having some serious problems connecting to my wireless router. I have wpa-personal security and I bring my laptop from my work to home. The problem is everytime I bring it home it takes AT LEAST 20 times to connect to my wireless router. Everytime it comes back "your security key is incorrect", but it is NOT.
I am also not mistaking my network for another.
However if I boot up the laptop and let it sit by itself for about 30 minutes, it will just connect fine.
I have 2 other laptops that connect fine to the router with no problems.
Router: SMC Draft 11n Wireless 4-port SMCWBR14-N
Wireless card: Broadcom 802.11n (driver version 184.108.40.206)
I am thinking that Vista is sending the network key in a different version or something that makes my router hesitate?.html
I have purchased a netgear wireless adapter to connect to my work supplier router. the router is set up with WPA-PSK and TKIP security, and is set not to broadcast. I have set up a network account with the correct details. My system does connect to the network, however, in the network screen the network is shown as "incorrect security information, WEP security required"
I have a Toshiba laptop that is connected to a wireless network in my home. My concern is security for this computer. I have been reading alot of articles on the internet concerning security, and most suggest several things, one being encryption, The others are enabeling static ip address and wireless mac address filtering. I contacted Verizon and asked them to help me secure this connection to my laptop and they enabled WEP and assigned a key. I then asked about the other two options mentioned above and they said all i needed was WEP enabled. Finally my question: Is that enough?
My WEP Network Security Key is not being saved in the Wireless Network Properties Screen Security tab. A couple of nights ago I used a motel wireless connection and I had to change some settings to make that work. Now I have changed everything back to my home router settings, the home connection is now fine, but I have to enter the home router Key every time I boot up even though I click on OK on the Wireless Network Properties screen Security tab. Is a configuration file holding previous, incorrect information that loads the wrong key on bootup?
I have a wireless network in my home. I just purchased a Sony laptop with Vista Home business installed. When I try to get in Internet Explorer, many times I am unable. My network security key seems to always default to another code and I have to retype mine in in order to get on the internet. What can I do to have my key code be permanent?
I have had recent trouble with my .Net. Specifically with QuickBooks not opening up.
I called them, they said it was my .Net framework that was incorrect. We deleted it and reinstalled it.
Now, of course, I cannot open other programs - the error message is that I need to install one of the following: V1.1.4322 or V1.1.3705
A. WHERE are these versions available to download. B. Is there possibly another version that will take care of this whole mess.
I have tried to find a number to contact you people but you are very unavailable.

This is actually a Windows 7 issue, but I cant find a group for that. I have DVD (totally Legal, Region 2), I have installed the RC on two computers. Both have their DVD drives set to Region 2 On one computer, it plays fine with windows media player. One the other it say the system is set to Region 1, and wont play.
Although there is probably a thead elsewhere with a solution i think perhaps my problem will be slightly different. My grandmother has forgotten her password to log on to her desktop. i find this very strange do to the fact that we were just on the computer last night, and i know for a fact that we both havent forgotten the password. Because ive actually used it to log on as well. But now the pc is saying the user name or password is incorrect,(strange)
She is WV. Home Prem. of corse the caps lock is off, i havent tried f2,f8,f10 or whatever f-button during restart because im not sure that will help anything. no vista cd in the house. and here is where we run into the dead end...................
My computer is running the concistency check. It's at stage 3 and when it's almost complete it's starts to "replace invalid security Id with default security id for file ******" it's been doing this for a while now and I was wondering what I can do to speed it up. It's currently at 170000, and if I try to restart the computer the login screen will not load if I skip the disk check.
I got Vista 32 bit installed on my laptop. I work from Internet And need a good firewall and security suite which can protect my computer from trojen and malewars and hackers. Currently i am using kaspersky as my internet security and in past i have used Norton Security suite, In Both I have noticed getting too much of hacking attempts 3/hr.
We are using Dell systems, Vista Business. All our main and field offices are in California. Our computer clock is one hour behind this morning. The "Internet Time" server is time.windows.com. California has changed their summer day light saving time start and stop in different months. What should we do to disable the Vista day light saving time changes?
I have a customers computer that was running xp pro, I did the compatability check for an upgrade everything was good. I did the upgrade correctly. The machine rebooted the final time and said user and login incorrect? so I clicked ok and was brought to the login screen "administrator" and entered my password. No problem got right in. There were some software issues etc etc nothing major. I then went to microsoft and started the update process, specifically the updates for windows and other stuff IE hardware etc. I did the active x...then the update failed it said that I have to log in as an administrator.
let me back up, during the upgrade it failed at first and said that have to remove the C:user folder or rename it....I went into c and renamed it user1....then the upgrade went smooth...............
I have an Acer laptop which came with Vista Home Premium installed. I set up a password on the Personal Secure Disk (PSD) and put some of my genealogy data in there. When I come to access the data the system tells me I have used an incorrect password. Now I know I have the correct password - something has gone wrong. Are there any clever hacks developed to get into the PSD by evading the password protection?
I have Vista 64 with 4 gigabytes of memory. Vista shows that I have 4 gigabytes of memory in the system properties and welcome screen but my Winver command and the Task Manager displays that I have only 2.7 gigabytes of memory? I recently installed a Radeon 3870 HD 1 GB graphics card. Could my GPU could be eating up the rest of the memory. My motherboard is a DFI Lan Party UT NF4 Ultra D. I am fairly certain it has the latest BIOS firmware. I am confused.
I had had a problem with my original Vista acct. I lost access to the C drive. Done by my naive fiddling around with permissions while in a shortcut to OS(C). A computer guru tried to get the drive back, but I think he felt that although he got c drive back, it didn't go well. He then set up my "real" admin account and a third regular acct. He then suggested that I transfer docs, pics, etc from the first acct into the new regular acct. This proved a little daunting to me and I was lazy about having to do all this transferring of files and folders and retweaking things again. Particularly so when the original acct got back the c drive. So, I went back to using the "fixed" original acct. There is an assigned password to this original acct, whereas there are no PWs assinged to my other regular acct or the admin acct.
Problem: When booting up, I get an "Incorrect Password." I enter the pw for the "fixed" acct and it opens. Going to Start>switch accts is no problem as the other two accts are easily opened without pws. How do I (1) Get rid of this annoyning prompt? (2) Give pws to my other two accts? I am nominally computer savvy, but working with Vista and accts and permissions has been a set back for me, so a little more explanatory detail.
I've had this problem with XP/OE and it seems to exist with a new install of Vista / Windows Mail. After a while, a newsgroup starts showing an unread count when it shouldn't. For example, at the moment, m.p.vc.ide.general shows that I have 3 unread. When I select it, no posts show up. If I do "catch up" from the right click menu, it clears but it comes back next time I select the group.
It seems that this happens after running the automatic "Windows mail can optimize" thing. A second thing is that "catch up" seems to take a lot longer after running this optimize. Clicking on a message, doing a select all, and then mark as read works immediately. This also existed with XP pro. Is there any way to reset whatever is causing this?
When I send an email using a large group and just one of the emails in the group is an incorrect or improper email, it will give an error message and tell you that the email is not being sent because of the email. One would think that all of the other email addresses would get the message, but it won't. Is there a way to correct it so the email will at least go out to the other correct addresses?
Its connecting to the remote pc and gets me to the logon screen but says username or passoword incorrect. Password IS correct. Seems the same for all my pc's on my network. It all used to work but havent used it for a while as i sometimes use it while im at work.
Several times when I try to send a message from email I get an error message saying that I have selected an incorrect server. Where do I go to change the server name? It says the current server is A T & T Mobile. I know this is incorrect.
When my Notebook first starts up, a note in the bar at the bottom of the opening 'Acer' screen graphic shows; <F12> Change Boot Order in Vista I don't have the confidence yet, just to hit the <F12> to discover where this leads to, and what it is all about. I fear that I may do something that will de-stabilise my perfectly operating system, or worse, get into a predicament that I have no knowledge off, nor the technical ability to escape from it. I have searched through the Forum threads, but have been unable to find anything that discusses the <F12> boot order. I would like to know the following:
1. In what situations is the <F12> boot key used, or when should it be used? 2. What system boot order does it change, and can this be beneficial to the performance of the Notebook? [my system in specs below....saves a lot of re-typing!]. 3. Are the instructions clear and understandable to a 'non-geek'? 4. Is it easy to exit or escape from <F12> window, and can that be done without making any field or boot order changes? 5. Is there an ability to revert to, or restore to, former boot system settings, if incorrect or invalid changes are made, which later de-stabilise the system start-up?
I am having issues with Excel - when I create a spreadsheet, it prints fine on any computer running Vista, but when I send the file to anyone not using Vista, the margins are incorrect and the document prints on 6 pages instead of one - no matter how I have it formatted.
when i try to print (using Epson C60, running Vista, all drivers updated) I get message "parameters incorrect",when I try to access status monitor I get message "Bidirectional communication must be establised in order to access the Monitored printers dialog box" what does this mean?
My problem is this: I am running Windows Vista 64 bit on an ASUS laptop and, after some "experimenting" with binding EXE's on XP and moving them over to Vista, I started receiving the dreaded error message "This program has failed to start because it's side by side configuration is incorrect". Now, I'm no noob when it comes to computers. But I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this problem. THe most common solution I have found is to install the Visual C++ Redistributable, thing is. When I run the installation EXE, the same error appears. I have attempted running in safe mode, system restore, and all the usual options, and every thread with this same problem is often ignored, therefore I have not been able to find a solution.
I have Vista x64 and I have read threads on this for weeks and can't fix it. I have file sharing/network discovery on, private network, password protection disabled, my shares set to everyone and everyone is on the same workgroup. My problem is that the x64 Vista computer will not see any of the XP (x86 or x64) computers and they can't see it from the Network Neighbourhood. However, if I type the IP address of the XP computers I can access them. On the XP computers if I type the IP address I get an error that it isn't accessable and I might not have permission. However, if I type \192.168.0.100share or any of the other share names I access it just fine. pinging works too by IP but not by name. If I boot into the x86 install of have of Vista I can access XP computers from Vista and the Vista from XP by name and everything without typing any user names. The only differince between the two aside from x64 and x86 is that x86 isn't patched past SP1 as I don't use it often. Lastly after installing that XP patch I can see the x86 XP computers by name from the network map feature on Vista, still can't access them by name though...
I'm trying to network my new Optiplex 740 with Vista Business (32bit), and Norton 360, to my old Euro PC with W2K Pro. and SystemWorks, using basic Belkin /Realtek cards and yellow ethernet cable. My broadband connection is through my old machine and works perfectly, as does the network card installation.
My new machine also indicates that its card is correctly installed and functioning correctly. BUT the Network and Sharing Center window shows this computer as linked to an Unidentified network and no connection to either the other computer or broadband connection.........
I have bought DD a laptop for Christmas and thought I'd get it all set up beforehand. I already have a wireless network here at home, with 2 desktops running xp) and a macbook, they connect via a belkin wireless modem router. Vista however, doesn't even find a network, I get a message saying the network cable is nplugged. Its wireless enabled and the switch is on
One usb ethernet adapter for internet connection through an old router, one for a Linksys Wireless G router hard wired to remote security cameras sums up the problem where one cancels the other out. This is a problem for XP, Vista, and even 7 beta while the primary system still runs XP. The dsl connection is through an old dsl setup using a usb adapter while the Linksys pci adapter card or usb adapter once installed becomes the default network adapter.
The wireless router itself is plugged with the RJ-45 ethernet adapter directly into the main controller/dvr box for live wireless feed to the main XP system or this one as a second means along with direct plug in to a tv set in the room where the main box is located. In XP, Vista, and even the later 7 beta the same problem of running two adapters without conflict is the main question needing a working solution. This thread is intended to tax the most network familar people here.
The landlord runs the main XP system with eventual plans to upgrade to Vista while this system serves as a testing machine a good deal of the time explaining multiple OSs as a rule. The router and adapters are in working order not seeing any defects while canceling the original dsl adapter out when installed. That takes out the online connection in the process.
Bought a Freecom Network Drive (LINK) from PC World today and got it set up and it seemed to be working fine on my Vista computer until I tryed to get it set up on my XP computer. It seemed to get setup ok but then the whole thing just stopped working. The hard drive spines and it works fine when plugged in as USB device but when trying to connect it to the network it simply does not show up. I have a Belkin G+MIMO Router and the Network Hard Drive is a Freecom Network Storage Hard Drive 250GB
Just returned from holiday and while we were away I changed my laptop network in vista from private to public as advised and the internet worked fine. Now at home I can’t connect to my router, and I get a message saying that the details held on the computer is not the same as the router. Also there is no “customise” function being shown on the network and sharing centre screen to switch back to private network. I’ve tried everything to set up a connection, even a new one, but the same message appears all the time.
Can I set up network of two computers with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista Home Basic with FireWire? How both systems will detect connection of two computers with FireWire cable? Does that connection make possible file exchange?
ok so this problem has been going on for awhile now but has gotten worse somehow... before i could not access my vista computer upstairs from my xp computer downstairs. i've made sure the settings are what they should be on the vista computer since i can easily access my xp computer from the vista computer. now the problem has gotten worse by that i can't access my xp computer from the vista computer or vice versa so now i can't transfer files from each computer. i need to use my external drive or a flash drive.
