Centrino 6205 not connecting to Netgear WNR1000

Jump to solution

I've got a 6205 wireless card installed in a Thinkpad T430 that has so far refused to connect to a Netgear WNR1000 v2 router.

The Thinkpad has connected flawlessly to every other wireless network I've tried and numerous other devices are connected to the Netgear router without any issues. Drivers on the Thinkpad are current (15.4.1.1).

I've tried clearing out the wireless profiles as well as resetting and reconfiguring the router. Does anyone have any other ideas? The logs Intel's tool provided are below, but they don't seem to be very useful.

Hello Jagar,

For testing purposes, please try connecting in an unsecure mode.

If the connection is successful try using WPA-AES security only, try to avoid TKIP or a combination of WPA-AES+TKIP .

If the issues persist, check if there's a firmware update for your router.

The fact that your ThinkPad successfully connect to another networks eliminated the possibility of a bad integration of the wireless card.

Setting the router to WPA-AES only seemed to do the trick.

Thanks!
