Hello,
I have just changed wireless Network provider to BT and whilst 2 of the newer laptops have connect no problem once I have put in the security key the 2 other lap tops are showing the message " The connection was cancelled this might be due to timeout or user action" Any ideas how I get round this problem?
These laptops have Windows Vista and are about 4 years old.

Much appreciated.

Did you try deleting your wireless profiles and creating one

Go to start and type

manage wireless profiles and press enter

Remove the existing one and create a new wireless profile

Hi Sundar.
Try this but no luck!
Thanks for the advise though.

Are you using a WPA or WPA2 key?

Vista>> WPA/WPA2 always had issues.

Does those laptops connect without a security ? Did you uncheck MAC authentication.
