Notebook with Atheros Wireless & WinXP will not connect to hub with WPA
If anyone can help I'd be more grateful than you could imagine!! 12 months ago I purchased an Asus laptop for my Mum, with Vista Business / XP Pro Downgrade. After downgrading to XP Pro I found that it was not possible to connect to any external servers - no website in IE/Opera/Firefox, no mail servers, cannot even ping/tracert to any external hosts.
I am able to wirelessly connect and stay connected to my Netgear router and receive an IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.2) without problem. The Windows XP Zero Wireless Utility reports that the connection is without any problems. I am able to ping my router @ 192.168.0.1 with 100% response @ 1-2 ms, and can login to the router config page at the same IP.
1) Other devices function okay on the same router
2) If I turn off wireless security (i.e. turn off WPA/WPA2) I CAN access websites, and external hosts etc!
3) Sometimes, even with WPA2 on, I get 25-50% ping response from some external hosts, e.g. google.com, and can partially load some webpages, but very slowly and never completely. This 'flicker' of connectivity tends to happen within the first 15 seconds of a wireless connection to the router being established. It then stop completely, with no returns for pings.
Anyone suggestions/further questions very welcome!!!
All the best,
