Have replaced wireless antenna on laptop and upgraded firmware on router still not connecting. Have changed channel on router. Have reinstalled network device drivers. Any new Ideas would be helpful.

    Remove ALL the stored wireless network profiles and then search for the network. You should be prompted for the encryption key.

    If you still have issues, let's see this.

    Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
