I've recently moved into a new shared house and I'm having problems connecting to the wireless network (Thomson Cf716B) with my inbuilt laptop network card (Ralink RT2500). Everyone else in the house is able to connect to the interney ok and I have been able to connect to other networks in the past. I can see the network and have a decent signal but it does not allow me to access the network when I type in the network key.

Please can anyone help.

Remove any old preferred networks. Now, get yourself a USB key. While logged into the router, copy and paste the network key to text file and take this key to your laptop where you'll copy and paste the key where prompted.

Also, it is possible MAC address filtering is enabled in the router. Either add the MAC address of your wireless card or disable MAC address filtering.

Disable the anti-virus or firewall,Type "services.msc" in RUN command and find "wireless zero configuration" in services page and right click and Restart it and also as DaffyKantReed said delete the prefer-ed network and try connecting to your home network. Access router set up page and enter mac address (mac address filtering) Make sure that your typing the correct password.
