Exclamation Network Security Key Mismatch - 3rd time unlucky.

I have Netgear Rangemax WPN824 v3.

We recently bought our 3rd laptop, and when trying to connect to the wireless network I type in the Security Key and get a "Network Security Key Mismatch" window.

The catch is that i'm using the exact same security key as I used with the previous two laptops, though that was some time ago last year, and both of them managed to connect to the network. I have checked, double checked and triple checked that I am typing the Key in correctly.

Any possible solutions/causes?

Hi,
I believe, You were using the Security Pin at the back of the modem. May Need to use the Encrption Network key which is at the bottom.

Login to netgear.
Setup --> Wireless Settings --> Encrption Network Key

Thanks,
Kaleesh.

you should not need to manually setup.

once you now the correct encryption key then refresh the network list and "hit" connect and when box prompt for key, type in the encryption key or if you are using other wireless adapter utility then follow the box.
