Can't connect to wirless network

This is the setup I have:

1. cable modem attached to a
2. D-link wired router
3. MS wireless base station MN-700 which I'm using as an
access point.

I have installed the software for the PCMCIA card on the
laptop and then inserted the card. The card can detect the
wireless network, but I can't connect to it. Regardless of
whether I have WEP enabled or not, it always give me the
same error message when I try to connect. The message
reads as follows: "the wireless security key (WEP) is not
valid for the selected network. To connect to an available
network, click OK and enter the settings required"

I'm using a Sony VAIO laptop with Win XP as an OS.

I tried connecting the laptop through an Ethernet cable to
the Access Point, and I had no problems connecting to the
net, the problem is definitely the wireless card or
compatibility issues it might have with my hardware.

Other info: I updated the firmware... I tried configuring
the AP with and without WEP... I have tried resetting the
base station... The SSID and channel are correct...

Is it the card or the AP? Is it configuration issues or
hardware compatibility?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to your
response!

Thanks

Now I don't even get that error message anymore, it just
doesn't connect. nothing happens when I try to connect. Am
I forgetting a simple important step? or is it something
much bigger?

Thanks

Are you using Windows to configure your wireless network card or the BNU?

What wireless network card are you using?

Are the following services enabled & running "SSDP Discovery Service"
"Universal Plug and Play Device Host" & "Wireless Zero Configuration"?

What service pack are you using (SP1, SP1a, or SP2)?

Has your network card been disabled in either the networking or device
manager?

Thanks for your reply.

I tried configuring it using the Broadband Network Utility
AND Windows. It didn't work with either method.

I'm using a microsoft card - MN-720

SSDP and "Wireless Zero Configuration" are both running

"Universal Plug and Play device host" was not started, but
I just changed it to "automatic" and started it. I also
restarted the machine.

I'm using service pack 1 and the network card is enabled.

I changed the channel from the default 6 to 11, but that
didn't do much. I have a cordless phone that runs at the
2.4 GHz frequency, but I unplugged it and unfortunately,
I'm still unable to connect. When I click on my wireless
network and ask it to connect, absolutely nothing happens.
I don't get any error messages at all.

Thanks again in advance.

When you don't get an error massage check if you now have a 192.168.*.*
IP address for the MN-720.

If that is the case you are actually connected (Assuming you are using
DHCP & you haven't changed the scope for your DHCP server on the d-link
router).

I am using DHCP, which is assigning my AP an IP, but there
is no communications between my wireless card and the AP.
I have no 192.168.*.* address

What address ARE you getting from the AP?

Are you assigning a static IP address to the wireless card or a dynamic
IP address?

What is the IP address you are getting?

192.168.1.103 through DHCP. This is frustrating, it should
be working!

Do you think I should assign a static IP? but I'm only
using it so that my laptop can get its own IP from the
main router.

I might take it out of AP mode and use it as my main
router.

Can you ping the IP address of the router?

I'm guessing it's 192.168.2.1.

If that give you replies then try the following & post the results.

1) Go to start | run | type in "command" (without the quotes) | click on
OK. (no results from this part.)

2) Type in "ping www.google.com" (without the quotes) & press enter



3) Type in "ping www.homestead.com" (without the quotes) & press enter



4) Type in "ping 216.239.57.99" (without the quotes) & press enter (this
is www.google.com)



5) Type in "ping 209.157.71.50" (without the quotes) & press enter (this
is www.homestead.com)

I can't connect to the network, I have no IP, so I can't
ping anything.

My AP's IP address is 192.168.1.103

Ok, I was able to get the network up and running when I
switched it to router mode. But I really wanna use it as
an AP. The reason is that I have quite a few
configurations and filters set on my main router (D-link
DI-604) that I don't want to re-create on MN-700.

Did I have to configure the D-link in a certain way to
have the MN-700 act as an AP and let traffic pass through?
Did I have to assign the MN-700 a static IP?

Thanks

Ok, I got it to work in the setup I wanted. My main wired
network assigns a static IP to the MN-700 which acts as an
AP. I have MAC filtering on it as well as WEP security.
I'm in business. I have a feeling the cause of my earlier
problems was MAC filtering. I might've made a typo, but
shouldn't that have given me some kind of a message
telling me that I can't connect?

Next project: converting the AP in to a router again to
have 2 layers of security in an attempt to implement a tri-
homed firewall configuration....

Anyway, thanks a lot for all your help!

As it stands now, I have a router and then an AP. but
eventually I wanna have 2 routers in an attempt to
implement a tri-homed firewall configuration. I will have
a server or two between the routers though. Its the
problems and working through the solution that I'm
looking for - I must be a masochist :p 

Thanks again Joker

The solution is don't do it.

You should never have two routers right next to each other.

First off it shouldn't even be needed as a router is only need to
connect two separate networks. Second off it will cause major problems
with file & printer sharing because of NAT.

So do yourself a favor & get that stupid idea of using two or more
routers out of your head.

The idea is exactly to have two seperate networks, with
the intrenal one being completely protected. the server
between the 2 routers would be the proxy server (ISA
server) where people from the outside will have limited
access to it.

The idea is a three-homed firewall configuration, and
well.. you need two firewalls for this setup.

With the type of routers marketed to home users you can not do this.
you will need to get commercial or higher grade routers.

So forget doing it with your current hardware at least.
