3Com Managed Wireless
We currently have a 3Com Managed wireless solution in place at the school. It is approximately 3 years old and we have an issue regarding Windows Vista. When you try and connect to it with a Vista laptop, you can type in the network key, and all it does it keep constantly trying to "acquire an network address". Eventually it gives up and I just get the "automatic" connection result.
The Switches are WX1200's (we have three)
Any idea why they will not connect?
I'm sure this issue is resolved somewhere.. IIRC it was something to do with a mix of BIOS, WLAN adaptor drivers and Vista have a different approach to authentication..
I'm pretty sure if you do a search on Vista, wireless, problem you'll find some of the original discussions.
I'd agree with contink - you'll probably find it's an issue with vista/wireless client
I run a wx4400 & I had the same problem last fall of '07. IIRC, I simply installed the latest firmware on the WX & Vista problems went away. HTH. -John
