Hi HTF, I'm hoping someone out there happens to be a networking expert, because I'm stuck. I have just purchased a verizon dsl account, and they provided me with a westell 7500 modem/router. To go with this, I purchased an Asus M70vm laptop, to use in my living room, which came preloaded with Vista Home Premium 32bit. My intent is to use my laptop to stream music from my desktop computer or the internet to my sound system, as well as use my television for displaying video from the laptop now and then. Because of the distance and setup, a wired internet connection to the internet is not possible. Vista will not, no matter what, create a solid connection to the router wirelessly. All drivers/OS are updated, and the newest firmware is installed on the 7500. When I attempt to connect wirelessly, Vista gives me the error message "did not receive a response from the router" and refuses to connect. If I restart my computer, or continuously retry to connect, I may get a connection, which will then fail within a minute. Any attempt to reconnect gives the same above message. I can see the wireless network listed as full strength, and it is not a signal strength problem, as the problem persists even when I am within 10 feet of the router. I have tried changing / removing the encryption on the router for wireless, with no affect. I then took my laptop to work today, and was able to connect flawlessly in seconds to the wireless system here that uses Cisco wireless access points and WPA encryption. Any ideas? I'm all out of them. Help!!
