  1. I'm staying at a hotel and the manager won't allow me to contact the network administrator. I should probably contact the company that owns the property. Even better idea. Thanks everyone.
  2. Oh, and I'm accessing someone else's wireless network. They gave me the WEP key, the SSID, and the Key Index of 0 to use. I don't think I can use WPA or reconfigure the access point to my liking. Heh. I'd be pretty shocked if that were the case. That's not very secure at all.
  3. Yep. It will work find if the key index value is 1. But if the Key Index value the network administrator has decided to use with the WEP key is 0. It means you are SOL. What I have decided to do is reinstall Windows XP, prevent it from updating and see if it doesn't have the key index value I need. Supposedly it should. I have a dual boot and will just remove Windows 2000.
  4. It matters, the key index. It's not working with 1, 2, 3, or 4. I also have a D-link internal wireless networking card and it is the same problem. I have a dual boot with win2000 on it and it has the same key index values-- which is no help. I'm now thinking to just roll back xp but first I'll try removing the partition with windows 2000 on it and install another copy of Windows xp, not get the updates and perphaps connecting with that will work until I find a solution. I don't know what else to do.
  5. Sorry for the delay in responding. I checked for updated drivers for my wireless adapter but the adapter appears to be working fine. In the configuration-- using Microsoft's Networking, For the WEP Network Key, I cannot set the Key Index value to 0. The key index values are 1-4 on my system. But I need a key index of 0. Microsoft shows that there should be a key index value of 0, 1, 2, 3 in an article on troubleshooting wireless zero configuration. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=870702 I have windows xp with sp2 and so I don't know why I don't have the key index value of 0 that is mentioned in this article. I have a key index value of 1-4, not 0-3. I can't believe I can't find a solution for this. The only other option I feel I have now is to just burn what data I want to or can save to CDs and then install another OS. I'm very discouraged. I have always been able to find the solution to my problems but this time I can't find the solution. I've gotten every windows update microsoft will give me. Every driver update I can find. I'm using a WUSB11b, A Linksys wireless adapter.
  6. I have windows xp sp2 and when setting up my wireless adapter-- I was not able to set the key index value to 0. It only accepts the value of 1-4. I haven't been able to find any help for this anywhere. I'm near tears. Can someone help me? FYI, I'm running PIII 996 MHz, 384 MB of RAM, running Windows XP Service Pack 2 If anyone can help me I'd be soooooooooooo grateful!
