I've had a good look around for a solution to my problem but can't see one and that's why I've had to start this thread.
I've had a laptop which connects to a router wirelessly for about 2 years without a problem. The router is also hardwired to my desktop which still currently works fine.
My problem is I can no longer connect to my network even though I can see it in 'view currnet networks'. I've had a bit of hassle with my laptop which over the last couple of days got worse which eneded up in me recovering this morning and starting from scracth.
I have an Acer laptop(wifi), speedtouch router and use AOL. I have WEP encryption (which I have dissabled but still could not connect to 'graysnetwork'. For diagnostic purposes I have successfully connected (albeit briefly) to an unsecured network, something which I couldn't do over the last few days as my laptop was giving me grief.
I've tried connecting a million times. When I click 'connect' for my network it does not ask for my WEP key even though it sais it's secure.
I've been in 'change settings' and where I can enter the WEP code it sais it's too long.
This is all driving me crazy, hopefully someone can help.
Many thanks in advance
