I have a friend with a T30 Thinkpad (Win XP Home, SP2) and a new Linksys Wi-Fi card who has a problem that just keeps coming up. We have no problem getting on the internet where there is unsecured access. As long as there is no authentication to go through, it's fine. But at several venues, where there is authentication, we always fail to get on. The signal can be nice and strong, but our attempts to log on always fail. The software says something like "Connected to Access Point, no internet found."
We have the correct password, we enter it using both 64-bit and 128-bit encryption, we watch closely to use the correct case for the letters. Nothing succeeds. To my knowledge, she has in fact never succeeded in logging on when authentication is required. (but this has been at only two places that I know of).
Can anyone suggest to us what is wrong here?? She's in Madrid now emailing me for advice.
