I have a D-Link AirPlusXtreme G DWL-G650 Wireless network card and a Trendnet 432brp wireless router. Recently the laptop i have the wireless card in won't connect to the router. I check the router's log and it doesn't show any connection attempts from the laptop. I did a troubleshoot and disabled security, which allows the laptop to connect. I had it on WPA before and it worked perfectly. just came out of the blue. When I use Windows XP Home to connect to the network, a dialog saying "Waiting for the network" comes up and hangs for about a minute and then windows just gives up with no error message. I tried doing a network repair, winsock repair/reset, ran chkdsk and now i'm running the SFC /scannow command. I also tinkered with the router's channel, antenna power, and i also reinstalled the card's drivers from the CD. thanks in advance.

Download and install the latest driver from D-Link's web site.

Are you using the D-Link utility or XP's Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) to manage the connection? Are you sure the other one is not running?
