Why does my HP computer with Windows Vista time out when trying to connect to my Netgear N300 router?

by on January 3, 2011

Q: I’m using a Netgear N300 router and I am connecting several computers to it just fine with no problems. But I’m also trying to connect an Hp Compaq w/ windows vista and it is not working.

The security encryption codes are set for the computer and the router and I have no Idea whats wrong with it. The message “Wireless authentication failed because of a timeout” is sent every time i try to connect with this computer.

    – Compare the settings on the computers that work fine vs the one that doesn’t for any differences
    – Try turning off encryption and see if it can connect
    – See if the HP can connect to other wireless networks with encryption
