Access Connections v5.42 on Win7 -> WPA2 AES wireless

2009-11-30, 23:53 PM

Hi,

 

For some reason, access connections will not save a profile for a wireless network that uses WPA2/AES password authentication in Windows 7.

 

This worked fine n Vista.

 

The only way I can connect to my home network is by using Windows' Wireless connection properties to set the authentication method and password.

 

Thanks

Do you mean that the profile you created in Access Connections is literally gone?

Or that it no longer connects?

 

Are you getting a new profile named "Windows Wireless Service" instead?

The profile was still there, but It was not connecting at all (the toolbar icon was greyed out, with a red cross, and I was not connected to my LAN). Anyway, after a reboot (or 2 or 3, I'm not sure!) it seems to be OK now. I managed to update the profile with the right WPA2-PSK settings, and they have "stuck". I will test again next week, when I am back switching between customer sites and my home network. Thanks for your response.
