Hey everyone,
So my problem is on an ASUS Windows 8 laptop. My laptop does not detect my wireless network, no matter how close it is to the router. I have connected it with an ethernet cable which works, but once disconnected, the laptop still does not detect my network. It has no problem detecting any other networks and other devices can connect without a problem. I troubleshooted the problem, which said that 'wireless security types do not match'. I'm not very wise about this stuff so I have no idea how to solve the problem and have found nothing online so far which helps.
Basically, how can I get my wireless security types to match?
Thank you very much in advance!

can you clarify - does not detect - see the wireless at all
if so , then it maybe your PC is set to use channels 1-11 which is all thats available in North America
and the router is broadcasting on 12-13 - which is rest of world
for completeness Only Japan can use 14

sounds like you need to check your wireless security setting on the laptop. you are using one in the router but another on the laptop. for example, you may have wpa on one and wpa2 personal on another. both the router and the laptop wireless security must match.
