I have suddenly started getting the above message on my laptop
I have read the previous posts and gone through the steps of going into network connections, wireless and properties. The Authentication panel is greyed out but the concerned box is unchecked.
I am having this problem at home and office with this laptop but not with other devices so I am assuming the routers etc are okay.
This is a dell Inspiron running XP prof. Connecting to wireless broadband.
I am unable to perform System Restore as I keep getting the message "cannot restore".
Please help. Thanks
This problem troubled me recently. As T0SH implies - and judging by the probable age of your laptop - the CMOS battery may have died, thus setting your laptop's system date to years and years ago. I found that resetting the BIOS (I didn't get round to replacing the battery) to the right date/time fixed the problem.
Thanks for the suggestions.
rdave13> I followed the instructions in the post. The authentication page is greyed out and tie IEE box is blank (cannot be ticked even if so desired).
Did the procedure in the other post too: cmd etc
TOSH and Ian> The clock is showing the right time, date and year in the task bar
Grateful for any more ideas!
