Dear All,

I kindly need your support to understand what kind of trouble I'm into.

I am not able to connect wifi network on my new HP Probook 4320s (with 802.11 b/g/n standards), running Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. I found many thread on this forums..applied still and not solved..

I'm using at home a Thomson Speedtouch ST585 router, which has always served greatly, since my previous laptop (running XP) didn't have any problems connecting to it and my gf either doesn't have any problem, since she's constantly connected to it wirelessly. No other station is connected to it.
The type of encryption applied is WPA-PSK

In case you ask me:

-. i dont have any problem with wired LAN connection..everythig working fine...
-.resetted the modem with setting again..still same issue...
-.ipconfig shows "media disconnected " for wlan adapter... (wifi switch is on..it show blue light..that means its on)
-.ipconfig show values for ether card..alone
-.tried..resetting router, but still no luck
-.tried with open security (without security) still same issue...
- all the necessary "services" (in admin tools) are running and started
- win 7 SP1 is installed
- all the network drivers are up to date

Here, what's in the CMD prompt:

Boot into SAFEMODE w/ Networking and try wifi connection there.

If you have Internet Security Suite installed, remove it - http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN146

If the system has a wifi manager app - uninstall it.

Thank you very much for your kind reply.

I've started the system in Safe Mode, but couldn't connect anyway. Always the same message "Windows was unable to connect to .......", which appears immediately (almost at the same time) as I press the enter button after typing the password in.

I've uninstalled Internet Security Suite, using the link you've suggested me. Restarted the pc, but again... no luck. The same.

I don't have the "HP connection manager" installed. Did you mean that one by wifi manager application?
I just have the Wireless assistant, but that is a default program, as I understand, isn't it?

Well.. I understand that people might not have any other suggestion for helping me out, but I'm still hoping someone can enlighten me...

Regards.

Hello!

No I didn't fix the problem unfortunately..
There is a conflict between my router and the decripting of the password..
