I've bought a load of Belkin N1 Wireless kit for my new house and set it up
across my network. Most PCs have a PCI card and they all connect to my
router fine, though one was a tad fiddly. There is one PC however that's
connected via a Belkin N1 USB Card.
This PC sees the network but won't connect to it properly. What happens is
It sees the SSID of the network in the network connections dialog, but when
I connect the Network and Sharing Centre takes ages 'identifying' the network
and eventually just calls it 'unidentified network', sets it as public and
the settings won't let me see the other computers there even if I change the
settings to private.
All the other PCs recognise the network name "6Pax" correctly and ask me is
it a "Home", "Work" or "Public" network.
I can't try a PCI card in this other PC as it doesn't have a slot I can use.
I've tried the latest driver, uninstalling, reinstalling and deleting all
the stored settings for that network.
If Vista recognises the SSID why won't it assign it as the network name and
what can I do to force it to ask me if it's a Home, Work or Public network.
This is a setup with five PCs, 1x Windows Server 2003 with N1 PCI (Fine), 1x
Vista Ultimate (Fine), 1x XP Pro (Fine), 1x Laptop with XP Pro and Vista and
Wireless G built in (Fine), 1x XP Home Premium N1 USB (Problem)
I couldn't find a forum on the belkin site to post this on.
Thanks in advance.
