Microsoft couldn't get me the latest drivers
for my wireless network card so even if the drivers turned up as up to date in device manager that wasn't the case. That resulted in no wpa support so when I removed the security or connected via ethernet it worked. If you have this problem test to turn of the security of your network for a while and try to connect.
Why it made it hard for me to download the latest drivers from the manufutcers website which I should have done before reinstalling the OS and so was that I couldn't find the name of the manufucturer. That I solved with some help by in Device manager right click on the 802.11n Wireless LAN Card >> click properties >> details tab >> in the scrollbar choose manufucturer.
I have tried everything. Just everything. What am I doing wrong!?
Yesterday I got a laptop from a friend that isn't that handy with computers. The first thing i did was to buy a windows 7 ultimate 32bit copy for her, formated and replaced her vista. Its a pretty old laptop (Zepto A15 with 2gb memory, 2 gHz intel pentium) so I expected some problem. Among others to find right drivers for the Nvidia 9600M GT card. But now im completly stuck.
The attached picture explains my problem pretty well. This i have already tried:
1. Reinstalled the network devices (both ethernet and wireless). This is pretty strange I think though. The etheret device is named Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20
) and the wireless 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
. I can't find the real name of the wireless card. Any suggestions? Or is it the same as the ethernet (realtek)?
2. Turned off router, reseted router, changed the security key, deleted the wireless connection and some other basic stuff like restarted the computer.
3. Tested the wireless card through a ubuntu live cd to make sure it isn't the hardware that fails.
I hope someone is willing to help, solve or just discuss this problem. Its really driving me crazy!
Oh, I attach the information from ipconfig /all if the someone wants the information there. Unfortunalety i don't have the skills the make any use of it. Something i noticed though is that there is no numbers after "Default Gateway": Could that be the problem?
