A new laptop: Acer Aspire 7551-3650
Router is Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G2 V1
OS is Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Network Adapter is Broadcom 802.11n
is 22.214.171.124 which Driver Whiz thinks is up to date
The issue is the laptop connects wirelessly in hotels, at my ISP's office, at airports etc, no problem - but will not connect to my home internet. It will connect to my home internet via cable plugged into the router.
I have 2 desktops at home, one plugged into the same router and one connecting wirelessly with no problem.
When I attempt to connect the laptop, it detects my linksys router with a strong signal, and accepts the system password to log in - but then I get the message that it cannot connect to linksys.
If I deliberately put in the wrong password it tells me so, so I know it is at least shaking hands with the router.
Can anyone suggest the kind of thing I should be looking at to fix this?
Thanks for your time.
