I've got a ThinkPAD T42 running XP attempting to connect to a WRVS4400N CISCO router. No encryption and WEP get me on the network just fine, however changing to WPA-Personal on the router and WPA-PSK on the laptop gets me nowhere. The wireless card is perfectly capable of connecting to my at home WPA wireless network, there's just something hinky at work. I know I'm typing the password correctly, because I've simplified it enough. I'm using IBM Access Connect not Windows as it generally works better. I've tried turning my anti-virals and firewalls off and still no luck. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Other computers and mobile devices are fine getting on the network.
