Wireless not connecting

  woodchip 13:22 22 Sep 2007

This is a new Toshiba Equium Laptop running VISTA.

Cannot connect with the new Wireless Laptop, I have switched Wireless switch on, also entered my SSID, Profile and Password It can see the router but the router in the Laptop as a lock on it. Any ideas on this what is stopping it

Here are a few things to try :

1. Change the channel number.
2. Don't 'broadcast' the SSID.
3. Type the WEP/WPA key in hexadecimal rather than as characters.

Number 2 should have read 'Don't hide the SSID, broadcast it'
