Wireless Timeout

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have 3 laptops in my house and 1 computer, 2 laptops and the computer can connect to the router, the other laptop cant seem to wirelessly. The error message that i am recieving is " unable to connect due to wireless timeout. "

    I've tried changing the encryption key and the security from WPA to WEP and others and this also doesnt seem to work.

    Ive updated the drivers and this also, doesnt seem to work.

    Anyone having the same problem or have any ideas!?

    Would mean alot,

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    Does it work before?

     

    What are the operation systems running separately on the three PCs?

    Check if there is any firmware update for the router.

     

    Please try the following method to set up the connection:

     

    Open network and connection center.

    Click setup a new network connection.

    Click connect to the internet.

     

    It should find you wireless router connection. Then you'll have to set it up with user name and password that is defined in your router.

     

    Meanwhile, please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233 and check if it applies to your situation.

     

    Regards,
