However -- Wireless network is the exception. We have a Linksys modem and a Netgear Router with Cox Internet. We attempted to wirelessly connect by using our other fully functioning computer and their settings as a template. It still refuses to work.
It stalled on "Verifying Identification" which we eventually figured out how to solve by unchecking the little "Enable IEEE 802 1z authentication for this network" box.
A new persistent problem emerges. We changed the Network Authentication to WPA-PSK and Data Encryption to AES. We attempted to find WPA2-PSK cause that's what the other computers are running wireless on, but we couldn't. Other people told us just to using WPA is fine but I'm not so sure. With that said, the problem currently lies in trying to "acquire network address". When it isn't saying that, it usually has "limited to no connectivity".
What should I do? Did I set up the Network Authentication and Data Encryption wrong? It's a frustrating problem that we've attempted to fix ourselves but couldn't. Any input would be lovely, please and thank you.
