"Wireless assosiation failed..."

Posted: 02-12-2009, 01:13 AM

Hello

I have got real difficulty connecting to a wirless internet. The wire
thing is that the network that I am trying to connect to was connectin
me before, but unfortunatly (as I am in halls of residance, and did no
have a anti virus running on my computer at the time) could not ge
through security. After much hair pulling the IT guys here pushed m
through. I thought that they had somehow blocked me from the route
becuase as soon as they said they fixed the problem for me I no longe
could connect to the network! I am able to connect via ethanet now, an
the IT support guys are completly baffeled, they have done everythin
their end to try and get me up and running via wireless, they even too
me off the net work and added me on again to clear all settings that ma
have been changed!

I can see the network and it has full signal, but when I connect i
says failed. I run the problem thing and it comes up with this message
'Wireless association failed becuase Windows did not recieve an
response from the wireless router or access point'. After typeing thi
into google and being transfered to this site I see that other peopl
have had similar problems. I keep telling the IT guys that it cant be m
comp as it is only a week old!! But could it really be a problem wit
vista? The IT guys have gone through settings and things with me etc an
still not worked, so is there something that I need to do to make thi
work? As i said its only a week old and so far not been able to use th
internet via wireless!!!!

Incase this is needed. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW21E, with inte
centrino 2, im not really sure what virson of vista I am running bu
when I search vista under start menu it comes up with vistax64?

I will be so so greatful for anyone who could help and also recomened
way of fixing this without messing my comp....

Please help, thank yo

Hi
Hi
The are variety of security measures and each one works somewhat differently
than the other.
It is impossible to answer your question since we do not know what type of
security the Wireless logon employs at the site in question.
There are millions of computers running Vista and using successfully
Wireless connections, so just blaming Vista and send you away does not cut
the mustard.
If the IT guy is Not familiar with Vista he should investigate through his
professional channels since it is his system's security, and it is Not out
place to manipulate it
Sorry.

There is no mystery to wireless and as long as you are absolutely sure the
AP in on the Ethernet, your problem can be only one of two things and you
have already eliminated one of them. If you can see the signal the ONLY
other possibility is the security. You need the SSID and the
security/encryption info correctly entered. THAT's IT. If you don't believe
me, have the tech people set the AP to WEP and "open". Of course make the
same changes on your PC. (just for a few minutes for a test). If you get
connectivity, (and if you're seeing the signal, you WILL), it proves it's
the security settings entered on your PC.

Well they have gone through all my WEP and IP settings with me over th
phone and even when I took it in to see them. Also to the first reply
dont think it is the security becuase as I said I'm through that and i
it was windows would come up asking for the SSID but it doesnt it jus
comes up with that message. Im definatly through the security or
wouldnt be able to connect via ethanet.

thank yo

Hi
Ethernet security is Not the same as Wireless security it is on top of it.
Your comment about Ethernet security indicated to me that you are logging
to Business well protected Network and that your trouble stem from incorrect
configuration of the Wireless.
In any case may be as first step take your computer to a location that have
regular Home type Wireless and make sure that your Wireless works.
This page was written for Win XP the location of the described menus is
different in Vista but the principle of what to look for is the same
