Hoping for some help here as I'm at a dead end.
Installed XP Home for a friend of mine. IU set it up at my house connected to my wireless network - worked great - good signal strength and no problems.
Took it back to them and although I can see their wireless network, I can't get the PC to connect to it. I set their router up for use with another PC in their house which works fine, but the "new" PC can't connect.
When it asks for the WPA network key and I input their key, it hangs at the "connecting" dialogue box for ages and eventually says that it can't connect. Now the wierd bit is that there is already a network key in the dialogue box when I try and connect. Judging by the number of characters in the key, it's mine from my wireless network??
If I go into wireless networking properties and view the properties of their wireless network, the network key appears to be mine and even if I try and delete it, it keeps coming back??
As I said, I'm at a dead end with this one and would appreciate some help.
Their hardware is a BT Voyager 2100AB wireless router, an Athlon XP 1900+ running WinXP home with a Ralink wireless network card.
