Vaio laptop VGN-BX540B user

\015 I recently want to connect to my friends homenetwork with a Linksys router WEP +mac filter list security key she has regster my Mac address but the Homenetwork shows excellent power but my wireless connection shows disconnected to it.\015\012no web page opens\015

Answers :

Hi,\015\012A couple of questions for additional information:\015\0121. The LinkSys AP/Router, what model: WRT300N or WRT54G? (Actually makes no difference what model, just that knowing will help me be more precise in pointing configuration)\015\0122. OS, WinXP Pro SP2? Updated?\015\0123. Was there a time when Windows was reinstalled or your HD re-formatted?\015\0124. In your Device Manager, what wifi card do you have?\015\0125. Are you using the Windows built-in Wireless Connection or a third party configuration/connection utility?\015\012Just to give you an idea in my old Sony Vaio PCG-F709 with a NetGear WiFi card, Windows can not detect the WiFi Network but using NetGear Smart Wizard instead of the Windows built-in Wireless Connection, I was able to connect.\015\012Kind regards.
You should only need to enter the WEP key and get youre friend to remove your mac address.\015\012\015\012You may also need to refresh the ip address of your wireless card, so go to control panel>network connections>right click to properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, then reastart your pc.\015\012\015\012Or you can also click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns, so as to renew your dns and ip address.
