No more wireless on laptop

Message 1 of 4
(915 Views)

After several router resets to fix pixelated VOD movies my Toshiba laptop won't reconnect on wireless to my network. It keeps asking for my WPA2 passcode which I type correctly but it won't connect. Wireless printer and iPad reconnect just fine after router resets. NIC seems ok because I can connect to a neighbors unsecured network :).
Specs: Windows 7, Realtek RTL8191SE NIC.

The password must be entered all in capital letters. It is case sensitive.

Yes I was typing my WPA2 passpharse correctly and yes I did clear tables and cache. For whatever reason the only solution I could come up was to set a satic IP address for my laptop. It had worked fine for years with DHCP but after this reset who knows what happned.
