I'm hoping somebody here can help me. This is driving me nuts, i'm about to go insane!!!!!!
I recently got a HP Mini 110, last night i installed windows 7 RC 32 bit on it. Everything worked great last night, zero problems. Today I brought it to work with me, i'm thinking about making it my new "personal" computer at work. we have a dedicated seperate DSL with wireless on it, and it's giving me so much trouble, I've been fighting with it all day.
General description of issue. Router says connected, and have been assigned a DHCP IP address. PC see's router, Router see's PC in DHCP address, but can't get to internet. tried running the "diagnose connection" and Trouble shoot wizard several times with no help. still get same problem. One thing of note that may help in diagnostics. Hovering over name of SSID shows it's a secure WEP network, but when i tell it to connect, it never asks for a key. I set up the network manually and the above problem is what i get.
I have 80% signal, i'm roughly 15-20 feet away from the route with two sheetrock walls only in between it and myself. connected via LAN and works no problem, made sure drivers were up to date etc. Made sure WEP key is correct, rebooted, i've tried a dozen "fixes" found on different sites with no problems.
Does Windows 7 support 64bit WEP Encryption? is there anything special I need to do to make it work? Any idea what could be causing the problem? I know the router works, cause I know two peple no more than 30 feet from me who are on it and using it right now with zero problems although one is on XP and one is on the EEEpc linux.
I've been at it since 8:30am and it's now 2pm (breaks to do other stuff in between) and nothing....please help!!!!!!
