XP SP3 difficulty connected to WPA2 Network
Posted 06 July 2012 - 04:54 AM
There is one router which spits out 2 wireless WPA2 connections:
quadcore's connection is password protected
quadcore-guest's connection is not password protected. Instead there is a web gateway asking for a password prior to use
I have Windows XP SP3 and I cannot connect to quadcore directly.
I updated my wireless nic drivers, the driver version is now 2009 (the latest realtek driver).
So I have to pull some kind of stunt for it to work.
I have to connect to quadcore-guest, wait a few seconds, then disconnect and it then automatically connects to quadcore; note quadcore's password was input during failed attempts to connect to quadcore and is still cached.
The only issue is whether or not the former works seems to be chance.
I can't access the router which has a different password, and I am annoyed that I have to go through this bs to connect.

This wasn't obvious on its face since I had no other issues.
That is the cause of the weird wireless behaviour.
