Followed the advice, but no success.
the process of connecting (done on the camera) recognises my network, and then, using an auto method for wpa devices, asks for an encryption key. I suppose I am putting the correct key (it is 6 letters) and the device then recognises the name of my computer. On trying to connect with that device, I get the connection failure.
From control panel
network and sharing centre
manage wireless networks
click on the network logo then
use the quoted network security key
My firewall is managed by Norton, so I turned off the firewall and virus check via their software. However, I still get the communication error note on the camera. I'm not sure what else can be done.
The camera seems to acknowledge my network and my PC, but stubbornly refuses to communicate.
I have, in the past, successfully set my printer up in the system, which seems to suggest some peculiarity with the camera.
It will take some time for me to do this.
I can borrow someone elses computer. I cant do this right now, but its obviously the route for me to take. So I'll have to sign off for now.
