Have a hp pc 2000 netbook duo core, windows 7 home premium...after setting to factory reset after buying it from a private party, the wi-fi does not work....it did work before i restored to factory reset. The drivers were there and working before resetting pc. What can i do to get the wi-fi to work on this netbook? help, please....very fustrated. ken

ok just found out i have a realtek rtl8188ce 802.11b/g/n wi-fi adapter, and apparrently found the right driver, as it now recognizes a wi-fi card, but we can not connect to my wi-fi, says network security key mismatch.....so what do i do when i know password is correct?

The security key may not be what's printed on the router's case if someone felt the need to change it. You might need to go into the settings to check that and at the same time, check the channel it's broadcastiing on then look at the one the wireless device i set on and change that to match or to Roaming.

Make sure you have the correct password for the network, it may not be whats displayed on the router because someone in your house or you might have changed it on the routers website
