Please help me connect my win 7 laptop wirelessly
Hi there -I normally hang out in the Virtual Learning Environment forums but am desperately frustratedtonight I've come over here for some help -please. Son got new toshiba laptop (brand new) windows 7. Trying to connect it to our BT broadband hub - wirelessly. We've had this for several years and have had several changes of laptop xp and vista so now how to connect to the wifi -but this one just won't recognise the WEP key. It says the signal is excellent - it recognises the router by name and prompts us for the key -which we have entered correctly -but it keeps saying it won't connect. I have tried the usual switch on/off wifi/router/laptop/firewall - but as it's windows 7 which I have no experience of I wonder if there is anything else I might have missed out? Oddly enough - friend connected a win7 laptop a couple of weeks ago with no issues.
