I have a question about my wireless network. I just bought a new adaptor for my desktop computer running Windows XP so I could connect to my father's wireless which is at the other end of the house. I've been using a laptop until now, which, when I place it next to my desktop, picks up the signal perfectly well. However my network connections panel on my desktop gives me this message: "Windows could not connect to this network. There might be interference between this computer and the network access point, or the network is refusing access to this computer." Tried repairing, like it suggested, but that didn't work.
The adaptor on my desktop gets a full five bars of signal, so it doesn't seem to be interference. It just refuses to connect. At first it gave me the 'limited or no connectivity' message so I tracked down answers to that and tried the SP2+plus registry fix, but before I tried it was giving me the previous message; at any rate, the fix didn't work.
I bought a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO USB network adapter, if that's important. That's the only one the store had and reviews of it seem to be positive...
At any rate it seems to be something with the network itself refusing my computer. Does anyone have any suggestions for fixes I could try?
Edit: I forgot to mention, the network is unlocked!
