I keep getting the 'Network security Key Mismatch' message when you try to connect using my wireless internet connection.  I don't know that I use the password.


Hi oms1957

I recommend you try these methods

Method 1:

Reset the wireless network and make sure that you set the level of security to WPA2-Personal, as it is recommended.

Here are some links that will help you set up the wireless network

What are the different wireless network security methods?

Method 2:

If this does not clear if installed third-party antivirus and then try to connect. If the problem is resolved, you have to uninstall the antivirus and reinstall back or check with the settings.

Method 3:

Cycle power to the router and check if this is useful.

Thank you, and in what concerns:

    Hi sandyrb,

    1. What is the error message when you try to access the internet?
    2. You use Internet explorer to access the internet?
    3. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
    4. What is the type of internet connection you use?
    5. You have security software installed on the computer?
    6. How do you know that the computer is connected to the internet?

    Method 1

    Check if the problem persists in mode safe mode with network mode and post back with the result.

    Method 2

    If the problem does not persist in the safe mode with network, then it is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    1 did you changes to the software to the computer before the show?

    Start the computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists or not, if the question does not persist then perform the clean boot and check whether the problem is resolved or not.

    Was: start the computer in safe mode

    Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not work in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

    Start your computer in SafeMode (Windows 7)

    B: Perform the clean boot and check if the problem is resolved or not.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista or Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: perform step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual after the boot process.

  • error when you try to connect to the internet via a modem usb - 6 error: the handle is invalid

    error 6: the handle is invalid - I see this error message when you try to connect to internet via usb modem

    I'm using windows Vista Home Basic and attempts to connect to the internet via a usb Huawei modem.

    but when connect this device on windows xp pro his works very well.

    but with vista I see this error msg

    The handle is invalid

    any idea to solve this problem?
    Thank you

    You can get in trouble with your device drivers, firmware and/or software.  Go to the Device Manager by going to start / find and type Device Manager and enter and then double-click on the program icon that appears.  Check each device to a red x, yellow! or white?  These identify devices with problems probably (drivers, but also of conflict or something else).  Click on each for more details and troubleshooting tips.  If you need to get the drivers (and you shouldat least make the modem and everything you have time to do - they can help way beyond simply solve this problem), let the computer dealer or the manufacturer of the device (NOT of Microsoft Updates).  In fact, you must disable automatic updates in Windows Update driver as follows: http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/how-to-disable-automatic-driver-installation-in-windows-vista/. Follow these steps to get the drivers: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/driverdlmfgr.htm.  Once you have the drivers, you can install them via the Manager device as follows:http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/193584-device-manager-install-driver.html.

    Try to uninstall and then reinstall the modem again.  Remove the modem through Control Panel > phones and Modems, then uninstall the modem in Device Manager. Once the reboot is complete and it is reinstalled it should work (as long as you use the update of the above paragraph).  Make sure that you uninstall in this order.

    Are you sure that the modem is compatible with Vista and the rest of your system?  What is the manufacturer, brand and model?  You can find here:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-vista/.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
