Cannot connect to wireless router with WPS-PSK encryption

\015 I have a NetGear WGR614 with 4 computers connected to it, one wired and three wireless. I use WPA-PSK for secured connection. Now I am trying to add another computer (Gateway W323-U11 laptop) onto it via wireless connection, but the new computer cannot connect to the router. However, if I remove the WPA, there is no problem to connect. It still works if I revert the router to WPA mode, until the connected is severed and then reconnected. I made sure that the passphrase matches on the router and the computer. I also restarted the computer as well as the router. I even uninstall and reinstall the network driver (Realtek8185, version 5.1107.514.2008). I used everything I could think of. Could you please give me some advices?\015

Answers :

Don't use the passphrase. Go into the configuration of the Netgear device to where your set the security. The passphrase will generate 4 codes. You choose which one you want to use. I would copy all four codes and paste them into a spreadsheet or text file and save that to a memory stick or other suitable portable memory. Move that to the laptop causing the issue and paste the code into appropriate field. Save the configuration and you should be set.

I have worked with some devices that do not generate and save the codes correctly. Manually entering them has resolved the issues I had.

Good Luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
