I'm trying to get my friends computer to connect to the internet, his laptop is connected to the network but it says that he has limited or no connectivity. When I look further to try and find the problem in the wireless network properties I find the following error under the Authentication tab 'IEEE 802.1x authentication can not operate on peer to peer (ad hoc) networks or on networks for which data encryption is disabled.' I tried to chnge this by going back into the Association tab and enabling the data encryption to wep. Once I do this it allows me to to check the Enable IEEE checkbox. The problem is that I still can't connect to the internet. Why can't I get these settings to stay!?!? What else can I do??
