I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.
Of course, you could always download and install the free and robust Apache web server, but IIS is somewhat simpler and the documentation is better.
That means you would be violating the license if you ran a web server using IIS from your house or office, and more than 10 people connected to it at once.
If you want a free solution and don't need ASP, you could also run Apache PHP on your XP Professional machine.
Make sure that the WLAN light is on or flashing, check the settings whether the SSID is broadcasted or hide. When you connect to a wireless network, the settings and profile of that specific network is saved on your computer so that you won’t have to re-enter your network credentials, such as the wireless security key to connect the next time.
Change the Wireless Network Name and Channel, save and reboot. Try to change different security type to see whether you meet the same problem. Below are FAQs about how to remove wireless profile: Windows XP; Windows Vista; Windows 7; Windows 8; Windows 10; MAC OS.
First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.
[begin heated debate...] You don't need to buy the more expensive Windows XP Advanced Server or Windows 2000 Server to run IIS.
