laptop Dell 8100 circa 2002 laptop OS Win XP sp2 Router new Edimax BR-6547n connected to Vista
using AP WPA (preshared key)TKIP Router firmware V1.28
The router appears to be working. The laptop receives the signal, but can't decode the PW. Note, all OK if unsecured. I suspect the problem is in the laptop. I have the laptop within 6 feet of the router while setting it up.
I set up the laptop for WPA and TKIP. I go back to check on the properties and it changes to WEP and OPEN network authentication. Something is forcing the setup to change. (grrrrr)
The laptop sees the network and tries to 'validate the identity'. It never decodes the PW, possibly due to it changing to WEP.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
