I would appreciate any help on the following matter:

I am running Windows XP SP3. I can connect to unsecured wireless networks, but not to secured networks.
That includes my own home network. I know that I am entering the correct parameters for my network but it just continually tries to connect and eventually fails. Same issue with other secure networks, that I have the correct settings for. Any ideas such as registry changes, etc? How would I turn on verbose logging to troubleshoot this matter and where is the log located? I have tried recreating my home network configuration many times and sometimes it doesnt save the most recent settings that I have entered. Thanks for the help.

Click "Report" and request to have your thread moved to the NETWORKING section.

TerryNet and some of the other networking gurus can help you much better there than in this section.

In order to connect to a secured wireless network, you must have the SSID (or WEP key) key (i.e., the login/access key) in order to be granted access. If this is an issue with your own wireless network, I would advise you to contact your ISP to have it reset. Also, you might want to check your network adapter version and determine whether or not it requires updating. This can be found under My Computer-->System Properties-->select the Hardware tab then select Device Manager.

For more information regarding this issue, please go to CNET.com.

Good luck....
