I have internet and I can see the router in the Networking Control Panel and it is Enabled. But I can't connect to the router. I have it bookmarked and the bookmark (http://192.168.1.1/index.asp
) had always worked in the past. Just entering 192.168.1.1 doesn't work either. The browser says "Waiting for".... and then after a bit says "Done" but the page is blank. No 404 or any other message.
I formatted my wife's laptop, which is on the network and when I tried to connect, I was asked for the Network Key when all that was required in the past was our Pass Phrase. This is when I tried to access the router.
edit: BIL is over and he connected to the network with the pass phrase. My wife's laptop wants a 40 or 104 bit ASCII or hexadecimal key.
I didn't want to reset the router before asking this question because I always pull my hair out when setting it up.
Re-seting the router fixed the browser issue.
XP doesn't do WPA-Personal till SP2. Her laptop CD doesn't have any SPs on it. So I guess I'll have to disable my security to activate XP and get the service packs.
