I am trying to connect my laptop via a wireless connection to my D-Link
The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D which as an Integrated
Atheros 802.11b/g wireless LAN.
I am running Windows XP on my laptop.
Under Windows XP on my laptop it finds my wireless network by its name
of 'MyWirelessNet' and I click on the entry and then on the Connect
button. It prompts me for my network key and I type in 'Y2YT5689OPEE'. I
then type this in again in the Confirm area also. It then attempts to
connect, taking a very long time to do so with a message box and a
message "Please wait while Windows connects to the 'MyWirelessNet'
network" and another message below it which says "Waiting for the
network...". Finally the Wireless Network Connection message box closes
but the connection has not been made. No error message shows anything.
Ideas, thoughts, solutions, experiences, or things I might try to get my
laptop to connect wirelessly to the DIR-655 are most welcome.
If I run a wired network cable from my laptop to the DIR-655 everything
is successful. But naturally I want to connect wirelessly so I can move
my laptop around. Isn't that what laptops are all about ?
I am also successful connecting my laptop wirelessly to other wireless
networks. But not to my DIR-655 router.
