Hello, I have an HP Mini 1115NR which I have just registered. Whenever I try to connect to the wireless network, It just says, "Waiting for the network..." then it disappears without connecting (as shown in the picture below)
I have tried multiple settings on my wireless router, including changing the security to WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK (both TKIP and AES), and Auto WPA and WPA2 while changing the settings to match on the PC. I don't want to try WEP because that would make the speed at only A/B/G, not N, which is used by another laptop. The PC is running Windows XP Home Edition. My Wireless router is a D-Link DIR-615 A/B/G/ Draft N router connected to a Cable modem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, if you need more info to assist me, just ask.

I've got the same problem with my HP 2140 Mini which arrived yesterday. I've just posted about it here
The WLAN adapter in the 2140 is a Broadcom 4322AG, what does the 1115NR have in it?

Even though this may get you "working" WEP is easily crackable and most would say certainly NOT secure. The minimium encryption anyone should have now is WPA-TKIP with AES preferable.
So even though you are now working, it would appear that if your laptop will not support WPA your original problem still exists, and this issue appear again next time you try to connect to a secure public router that you dont control and which will most certainly not be using WEP. Unless you live in the country and have no neighbours for miles and never plan of using WIFI anywhere other than home then I'd be sending this unit back as DOA (if within 30 days of purchase) or faulty if it cant be rectified by an onsite technician.

That's what happened to my Atheros, and here is my posting for solution:
