Nevermind, probme seems to be the router, tried resetting it to factory defaults, doesn't help either. It's a WRT54GS v5.1 Linksys router
For some reason my laptop with windows 7 can't connect to my router properly anmore.
The router is a Linksys with a mac-address filter. The laptop has always had good connection on it.
I've reset the router, tried updating drivers, done diagnostics, troubleshooter, etc, I get results like this:
problem with wireless adapter or access point
a network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken
the default gateway is not available
Sometimes the tray-icon shows connection with excellent signal strenght, only when opening the network dialog box it shows a warning sign on the connection, and the internet is either still not working or incredibly slow.
Also checked windows event logs, they just say it can't connect, no response from router received, etc ...
I've seem to been through all the normal windows help tools and they don't help. If I plug it into the router directly it works fine though but that's not very usefull on a laptop.
What's the best way to figure out where the problem really lies? Or does anybody have any ideas on what else to try?
Edit: This is the only thing that seems to really point me in a direction in the event logs of Diagnostics-Networking:
Profile match: Success
Security and authentication: Not started
Association status: Fail 0x00038002
Association reason code: 0x00000002
