Hello,

I bought the Netgear N300 WNR2000v2 today for my laptop (ACER Aspire 5552). Installation was fine but when in try to connect to the router i get a message "Windows was unable to connect to 'SSID Name'. However when i go into routerlogin.net and change the security options to 'None' i get connected to the internet no problem. What seems to be the problem?

Many thanks,

Chris.

Re: WNR2000: Only connects to internet when there's no security encryption.

Hello,

You may either try a different Wi-Fi Network Adapter for your Acer or update your router's firmware to the latest and then RESET to the factory default and reconfigure everything. Pls. do not restore the previous settings.

Re: WNR2000: Only connects to internet when there's no security encryption.

can we see an ipconfig /all

Is the windows version vista and the adpater AR5007 (EG)


------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
