Not connecting to local wi-fi network
Good morning, I connect at home wirelessly with no issues using Windows 7 Ultimate on my Fujitsu laptop. I don't really understand all the different types of network but currently I share with no one, and under the network settings it states 'Home Network' and then 'Ready to Create.'
I was away for work recently at another site and they have an open wi-fi for visitors to use on non-work laptops, so it's passworded but other than that, it's totally unrestricted.
When I tried to connect it found the wi-fi network with full strength but would not identify and connect - the password was okay as I when I tried an incorrect one, it stated just that.
Do I need to do something different with regards to grouping/network etc or could the fault have possibly been with them?
Thanks - Blue
Note: it used to work on XP Pro!
