Troubleshooting Wireless Network Settings in Windows 7

This article will help you troubleshoot the Windows 7 error message "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network." It is typically a result of a wireless profile being created for the network incorrectly or connecting to a wireless network of the same name with different security settings.


  1. Click on the Wireless Icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.


  2. Click on the Open Network and Sharing Center option.


  3. Click on Manage Wireless Networks in the top left.


  4. Click on the name of the network you are trying to connect to and then click Remove just above the networks.


  5. When prompted for verification of removal, click Yes.


  6. Close out of the Manage Wireless Networks window and click on the wireless icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.


  7. Click on the wireless network you want to connect to and choose Connect.


  8. When prompted, enter the security key to connect to the wireless network and click OK.

The wireless network should now connect correctly.

  2. What if I want to reconnect to the previous network with the same name when it's available again? (i.e. if the network at my friends house has the same name as mine and I often go there)
    Do I have repeat these steps over and over again??
