Hi,I just got a new notebook: Vista Home Premium (SP 1).I have a wireless network with the following configuration:Authentication: WPA-PSK (passkey is full 63 bytes in length)Encryption: AESSSID Broadcast: OFFMAC Address Filtering: ONThe wireless router (which I checked is supposed to be fully Vista compatible):Manufacturer: BelkinModel: Model: F5D7230-4 Wireless GFirmware: 9.01.07 Multiple XP Pro machines connect to this network w/o issues (when the proper Passkey is entered).The Vista PC recognizes the network (I added the MAC address for the wireless adapter into the router).But everytime I try to I enter the key to connect, the same message results:"...The wireless network security key is not correct"The key is copied and pasted drectly from the router.Lastly, the adapter is able to connect when security on the network is completely disabled. The ethernet adapter connects just fine to the router w/o issues also.Am I missing a setting here?Thanks in advance for your help.
“Authentication: WPA-PSK (passkey is full 63 bytes in length)Encryption: AES”Change the Encryption: AES to TRIP
Hi ambra4,Thanks for the suggestion. Changing the encryption type to: TKIP results in the following:"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network".
SSID Broadcast: OFF Turn on and see if will accept the passkey
If you are entering a full 63 key password then you probably shouldn't be using the WPA-PSK which is providing part of the password itself. Try changing to full WPA (could be called WPA Enterprise or something like that).
dms and ambra - thank you both for your suggestions.Changed the key to 8 letters (all lowercase) only. Same issue - (incorrect key reported).But by toggling ESSID Broadcast = ON, the key was accepted and am connecting w/o issues now!Thanks again friends - have a great day!
Glad to hear all working fine Enjoy
