Hello,
I bought a and set-up a wireless network, a MN 700 and a
MN 720. All worked well until my hp notebook took a header
and is no longer operable. I have replaced it with a
Compaq and I cannot get the MN 720 to connect to the
network any more. It wont let me change the WEP key to
allow connection. I have tried removing the WEP on the
base station but still no luck. I also have a Dell
notebook and it does connect to the network without any
problems.I guess my question is does the MN 720 somehow
fingerprint itself to one notebook? and is there anyway to
reconfigure the adapter?
thanks

Is the new machine running Windows XP? If so, go into Control
Panel/Administrative Tools/Services and make sure three services are set to
automatic and are running: SSDP, Universal Plug and Play, and Wireless Zero
Configuration. Then go into Network Connections, right-click your icon
representing the LAN and select Properties. On the Wireless Networks tab
and make sure "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" has a
check mark.

If your LAN shows in the Preferred networks pane, highlight it and then
click the Properties button. Make sure you've got the correct encryption
key entered on the Association tab, then that there is no selection of
"Enable IEEE 802.1x . . ." OK your way out.

If it doesn't connect, check to make sure your machine is part of the
192.168.2.* IP range by going to the Command Prompt and typing in "ipconfig"
without the quotation marks. If it shows a 168.245.*.* then type in
"ipconfig /release" following by "ipconfig /renew" (again, without quotes).
You may need to restart the system.

I have the same problem and tried Chris's tips to no
avail. It sees the base SSID as available but wont
connect. Turned Security to None and Still no luck.
I have an HPze4700.
Next step may be to exchange my kit and try a new one.

Gary, yes same here, except that i get a error saying that
the WEP key does not match. Its the same settings /setup
floppy that I used on the HP that is no longer with us,
after installation I went back to the wizard and tried to
change that way but still the same error.

Dell with intel pro wireless works great, as did the HP

Chris H yes OS is XP professional, if that makes a
difference. tried all your suggestions but I was denied
access to ipconfig/renew. Talked to support, and they are
sending new adapter. 4-6 weeks. If i hadnt thrown the box
away I would have returned it....

take the hint Gary

I am also having "invalid WEP key" problems, even with
security turned off. My laptop is a hp ze4600. I am
glad I found this forum - it looks like the problem may
be in the adapter or some sort of compatabilty thing.
Maybe I will return it....

I did the switch to channel 1. This worked for me. Thanks all!
