I have a new router and I am having problems getting a computer to connect.
New router: DLink DIR-601 (updated firmware to 1.01)
Computer with problem: Dell Inspiron XP SP 3 with a DLink DWL-G650 PC card (driver 22.214.171.124) - this setup was working flawlessly with a DLink DI-624 router until several days ago...may it rest in peace.
I am trying to connect using WPA-PSK and have tried both TKIP/AES. No luck.
Once I got past the validation problem (unticking the IEEE 802.1x authentication box) I have not been able to make a connection. It waits for the network for quite some time then silently fails.
Here is something strange. When I go back to check the network properties (in advanced settings) some of the settings change on their own:
Network Authentication: from WPA-PSK to Open
Data Encryption: from AES to WEP
I have 2 other computers connecting without problems, 1 with an Intel Wireless 4965AGN and 1 with a DLink WDA-2320. Both using WPA2-PSK/AES. Any ideas?
The computer can connect with security turned off.
I am using a passphrase that I made. It is all alpha numeric and is working on 2 other computers. I tried changing it to something else but it made no difference. Also tried copy/pasting from notepad to make sure it is correct.
Is the card somehow not dealing with WPA? It was working fine with the old router.
