Default Can't get wireless laptop to connect

Interesting tool. My router fails two of the tests, but it works fine.

Thanks, Barb.

Kristen, Gary, and others,

We've just published a new tool to test your router. Feel free to give it a
go and send us feedback:

there are some routers that may not have upgrades available. vendors
aren't going to put their legacy gear through the logo program.

I think that if Kristen finds that the existing router doesn't cut
the mustard, and needs to find a new one, that the advice to get one
that has the logo is a good option. it may cost more than some of
the firesale prices on old routers, but for someone without
experience, it is definitely the way to go.

Examples: I have a non logo'd D-Link DGL-4300 router which performs
superbly under Vista. D-Link isn't going to put it through the logo
program. I also have their newer DIR655 router which IS logo'd.

Wow, indeed!

Kristen (and others),

I'm sorry you're experiencing trouble with Vista. There are a couple of
factors which might be causing this behavior. First, your router may not be
Vista compatible. Check to make sure it displays the Vista logo on the box.
There might be a firmware update to the router to bring it into compliance.
Another cause might be an outdated network adapter driver.

Please post back with the outcomes.

When I went to bed last night, the Internet on my new laptop (running Vista)
was working just fine. Woke up this morning and have been trying to get it
to work ALL day. It shows that my signal strength is excellent but it won't
connect. Not even when I plug it straight into the router! When I try to
diagnose it I get this message: "Wireless association failed because Windows
did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point." My
PC is working just fine (as this is how I am on here posting this question).

Any idea how to fix this problem? I'm about to pull my hair out!

Which tests does it fail? The text description explains the effect of the
tests that fail.
It is possible for a router to fail all of the tests except the 1st one, and
will work "fine" - depending on what fine is. Each of the tests translates
to an experience, and with failling tests, then your experiences in those
scenario's will either be degraded or will not work.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of a router are you running?

My router is a bit obscure. It's a Link-Max LM-341.
It fails the NAT Type (symmetric NAT), and the UPnP Support Test.
The other tests pass.

Default Can't get wireless laptop to connect

Ok guys, the smart man is here. Lol well thats what i reackon once i fixed my
problems with wireless network with vista and xp.

Here is my solution that i posted on my post:

Woooooooo! i got it working.

Found a fix! i read some where on here that xp has a short delay in sending
initial information through the wireless for the network. However, Vista does
not have that delay as it is "improved." Therefore, my network hub and vista
were incompatible until i got the latest firmware update. This was because
the hub would not receive information as it was using the xp timing and vista
saw it as non-responsive. After i updated the router firmware, everything
worked sweet.
However, in writing this i admit i might be completely wrong about the
timing thing and it was shear luck.

hopefully this helps some one, it took me 5 hours and a small miracle to
figure it out.

Hope this helps

Hi
Your setting of the Wireless Connection in the Laptop does not match the
credentials that are needed to log on.
If the credential are different at home and work you probably need to use a
Mobile Switching program.
