I recently purchased a new acer laptop with windows xp sp 2. I have tried connecting wirelessly using the built in wireless pci card but no luck. The card is fine it is enabled, drivers are good everything. It finds my router I hit connect in windows, it asks me for the wep key I insert it then it says connecting or waiting on wireless network with a picture of a pc connecting to a server, the status bar goes back and forth for about a minute then it stops closes the dialog box and never connects. The weird thing is under properties in internet connections I insert the wep key which is 26 keys long but it always seems to erase it and replace it with like 10 characters or so. I even connected the laptop to an ethernet cable, clicked internet explorer but it said I was offline. I looked under the connection windows and it said the connection was live and working. I just don't know what to do, I have read every article online with no solutions. Someone PLEASE help ME!
