"Security Network Key Incorrect".....but It's Not

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.

Device info
Router: SMC Draft 11n Wireless 4-port SMCWBR14-N

Wireless card: Broadcom 802.11n (driver version

I am thinking that Vista is sending the network key in a different version or something that makes my router hesitate?.html

Network Security Key Not Activate
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?

Cannot Save WEP Network Security Key
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?

"incorrect Security Information, WEP Security Required"
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"

Firefox Crashed Security Tool, Trojans Key Loggers
So a few minuets ago firefox crashed and this window 'Vista security Tool" Came up telling me i had trojans key loggers etc etc. I couldn't recall ever having a program by that name on my comp so I google it and yup it's malware. I don't know how to get rid of it the instructions I found didn't make sense after the command>notpad>paste this text part. Please can anyone explain to me (like I'm two) how to remove this? Also can anyone tell me how 'dangerous' this program is and why it's bugging me?

Wireless Network Pass Key Not Correct
I'm having problems connecting to my network with my Vista laptop. Every time I try to connect it says that it cannot connect so I click the "diagnose problem" button and it tells me that "the wireless network passkey is not correct." However, I know for certain it is. I have reset the network settings twice now trying to get it to work and it doesn't change the problem. The only problems I've had with the network before today is getting booted off the network about an hour or so after I connect (unplug the router for a second and re-connect with no problems.)

I'm thinking the problem might have something to do with downloading a p2p program today and using it. Afterall, everything was fine before hand. I have reset Vistas network options to the default settings. I can still connect to the internet if I directly connect to the router with a wire, or if I turn off my router security and connect to the unsecured network. The other laptop we have (XP) connects to the network fine with the same passkey, and our desktop (XP) has no issues but its directly connected to the router. I've run AVG and Malwarebytes and they both return no problems. I've deleted the network profile, and manually added the network with the same results.

Wireless Network Security
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?

'remove Media And Press Any Key To Restart'
Here's the deal. I've been working on this laptop for a client for 3 days now, and I swear I've read every forum out there, so I apologize in advance for any headaches I may cause here. As the title says, it's an Acer 6930 with Vista Home Premium. When I boot to normal mode, it gets to the 'Welcome' screen, and the little spinning circle just sits and spins. The client said they actually let it sit like that for 2 days and it still did nothing. Boot to safe mode - BSOD, generally with 'Page Fault in Non Paged Area', but sometimes others as well. (Sorry I did not jot any of them down).

Boot to BartPE thumb drive - 'remove media and press any key to restart' Boot into 'repair your computer' - Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically. If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. Hardware tests pass - memory and hard drive both come up clean.

Client doesn't have the Vista install disk, so I tried to D/L one last night, and apparently I got a bad image, because even in my other machine, the dvd is showing empty, so I am SOL on a Vista disk until I try to D/L another. I've checked out several forums as I said, and followed a lot of their instructions to no avail. I have also had the drive out and hooked to another machine, and ran Malwarebytes on it. The scan literally took 13 hours and found nothing wrong. I have also ran chkdsk and it fixed some bad sectors, but that's about it. SFC /scannow from the recovery area/cmd prompt says there is a repair pending and that a reboot is required, and you can reboot all day long and it will always tell you that. So, grab some aspirin after reading all that, get a coffee, smoke 'em if ya got 'em, and then let me know if you have any suggestions short of a 12 gauge at 20 yards.

Key Services Can't Start
key services I wouldn't touch myself aren't running and I can't start them - it's not just the iSCSI service that I spotted first, it is also the Event Log, Task
Scheduler... god knows that else! Decided I would do a System Restore but the only restore point available is this morning (9 Feb) and no further back I can't retore to a known good point before the issue occurred. There's 20GB free on the System disk (System Restore is enabled - there is ONE restore point!), so why only one restore point available?.......

Tilde Key Unresponsive: If I Press The Tild Key Quickly As If I Were Typing Normaly, It Dose Not Register
ive been having problems with the tilde key on my Asus laptop. at first it was that it didint work at all, in games, in microsoft works, or notepad. i went searching online and disabled the driver for the eHome ir receiver (even though i dont own an ir receivers). after that i was able to use the tild key only outside of games. but heres the strange part, if i press the tild key quickly as if i were typing normaly, it dose not register. in order to use it i have to hold down the tilde key for about 1-2 seconds before it would spit out a stream of "````````````". then i could delete up to the first one. this is true for the laptops keyboard, and a wired dell keyboard i connected using usb.........

Doesn't Allow Merge :: Need To Register A Key
I've got the Home Premium 64-bit edition and I need to enter a registration key for my password manager. Unfortunately this version of Vista doesn't allow me to do a merge, although I did find a way to have a look at the registry itself yesterday. Is there a way around this? I'd really like to get this registered and be able to use my password manager.

Function Key Can't Desired Result
i am currently using dell inspiron 1440 laptop with windows vista ultimate 64 problem is, that every time i have to use any function key (like f1 or f2 etc) i have to press "Fn" key as well to get the desired result...for example...for refreshing any page instead of pressing only "f5"....i have to press "fn+f5".the same goes with all function keys....and while playing some games it becomes very annoying to press fn key each time i have to press any function there any way to reverse the function of fn key...because by simply pressing f5 my brightness increases. so all i want is that i should be able to use "only f5" for refreshing the page and "fn+f5" to increase the brightness ....

Convert Retail Product Key To VL Key?
We just receive some volume license keys for Windows 7 (I'd ask this on a Win 7 NG but I can't find any). Due to a delay in receiving them, I had to install Win 7 Pro on one PC using a spare retail DVD and product key. Is there a way to convert this retail installation to use the Volume License product key without having to reinstall everything using the VL DVD and key?

Could Not Initialize Application's Security Component
I'm trying to install either Firefox or Flock and I get the following error: Quote: Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features. I click "OK" and the program does open with, as it says, incorrect behaviour.

User Name Or Password Is Incorrect
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...................

Can't Update Vista: Failures Related To Security
A Dell Inspiron 1521 running Vista. There are several problems that all seem related but the most obvious one is that I can't update Vista. It is set up to update automatically. However, the "New Updates are Available" Icon appears on the task bar. If I click on it a window comes up and immediately disappears. If I hunt through the help menus until I find a link that says "Click to open Windows Update" the same thing happens: a window opens and immediately shuts. Similarly if I go to the control panel and click Windows Update nothing happens.

If I right click on it and choose Explore a window comes up but it is empty. The Default Programs icon is similarly unresponsive. If I click on the Windows Defender Icon and click on that and say to update, it returns error 0x8007045a. In addition to that, the backup/recovery thing returns errors. And when I try to run Ad-Aware it hangs. All of these failures are related to security
