    Hey people,
    I'm running Vista64 through bootcamp and have had no problems in the past with connecting wirelessly while at school. However recently, I installed a router in my home and can't get the home wireless network to work for some reason.
    When I have a hardline plugged in, the internet has no problems and it runs fine. When I try to connect through the wireless network, I get a strong signal from my router but the Windows network will not connect me; it asks for my password (9 characters long) but then fails. I diagnose the problem and it says that there is no response from the router or the signal is weak (even though I see the network has a strong signal when searching). On the Mac OSX side, wireless works without any problems.
    Anyone have a solution to this? It's driving me crazy!

    Thanks so much in advanced!

    What router do you have?

    It may be due to the WPA2 protected signal, if you change the encryption to WEP it might actually work.
