    On my Host PC I recently added a new HDD and reinstalled Vista Home Premium as a clean install.

    My Client PC and my Laptop all instantly connected to the wireless network (D-Link) with no problems at all i.e.no passwords etc.

    However when I try to connect with my Iphone 4's (2) they both show the locked padlock symbol and ask for a Password to join the network. Prior to the new install of Vista this was never an issue, they both searched for an available network and auto connected to Dlink with no dramas.

    I have been into Network Sharuing and disabled the "Password Protected Sharing" and have the main wireless network set up as a Private Home network. I have prowled through all the properties for the networks and ensured everything is set to auto where vapplicable, sharing is set up correctly but no joy.

    During the above Vista reinstall, I did press the Dlink Adaptor "Reset" Pb but this did not effect anything that I could see and the Client and Laptop all still connected immediately.

    So what have I done? It does all appear to be related to the new HDD installation as it was fine before.

    I have been to the Dlink webpage, logged in and checked as much as I can understand there but a little reluctant to start changing things I am not too sure about e.g. the Password(s) therein I have long since forgotten are editable but I live in fear of changing these and screwing up the whole netrwork that is working fine at the moment.

    I have also done a Network Reset on the iPhones but again no luck. I have been through every network setting on the iPhones I can find but am obviously missing something, somewhere ..................................?

    Any advice would be, as always, appreciated.

    Thanks to TSG for 2010 and hope all users and visitors have a great 2011!!

    With a PC please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. Identify your network if it is not obvious.
