I had just upgraded my Streamyx to 4Mbps today. From the package which I subscribed, I get myself a free TM DLINK DSL-2640B modem wifi router.

As I setup the connection, everything was so smooth and get connected to internet. I used a desktop computer with Windows XP to do the setup with WEP wireless security at first.

Then later I change the wireless security to WPA2 and try connect to the wifi using my Windows 7 laptop. Strangely, the the laptop cannot connect to the wireless network. Showing unable to connect to the network. So I tried out many methods like disable/enable the wifi adapter, turn on/off modem, restart laptop and even try connect using my brother's windows 7 laptop but also FAILED.

I noticed my laptop wifi adapting showing these : attempting to authenticate. What is this?
I never come across with such a problem. Windows XP can get connected to the wifi easily but not windows 7.

I try switched to WPA, failed and to WEP again also failed.

Anybody know what is the problem?

You can try this method :

(1) Go to Control Panel, then Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center.

(2) Click Manage Wireless Networks in the upper left portion of the window.

(3) If your computer is new, then just click "Add." If not, then click "Add," go through the steps below and then choose the new network as your active network.

(4) Select "Manually create a network profile."

(5) Complete the form in the next window, including your network SSID, encryption type, encryption key, etc. Select the option to conect automatically.

(6) Save. It should say "Network Successfully Added." Try and browse the internet. smile.gif

Hmm....then the best next thing to do is to hard reset the modem router and configure from scratch.Don't alter any setting at wireless especially the transfer rate and mode.

Okay, just click the "Trouble Shooting" that shown on the "failure page".

Windows 7 is much more update than XP, it will guide you thru.

In order to test if wireless adapter in win7 laptop works well with modem router, you can configure open network (no wireless encryption) on modem router temporary, after that connect to it with your laptop.

If it works, probably you did not configure wireless encryption correctly on modem router or laptop.

If you need more ideas, take a look on this wireless network troubleshooting tips article.

Hope this helps.

hmm your laptop and your bro's using windows 7 starter edition or home premium? in my experience anything below professional is not so "network friendly"..i dont know y so dont ask me bout it. But my bro using windows 7 starter also had this prob before..u can try this:

wireless settings > wireless basic:
enable wireless
visibility status:visible

wireless settings > wireless security
security mode : WEP
Authentication : Open (i believe this is the problem..somehow if i change it to "shared key" my bro's notebook cant log in to the network)

or

make sure your wireless network adapter security settings is the same with the router settings.

e.g [router] WEP;Authentication:OPEN ----> [laptop] WEP;Authentication:Open

- To setup your network adapter
Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings (on the left side)
Double click your wireless adapter > wireless properties > security
change the setup according to what u set in your router.

I hope this will solve your problem. gud luck
