How do you know it remembers the wrong password? Does it tell you that by an error message?
Does the problem happen only for that computer, or you experienced problems for other computers / devices as well?
Please download a program named WirelessKeyView and run it on your Windows XP computer. It will display the saved Wi-Fi password. Check if it is the one you had typed or it is something else.
You can download it on this link:
Do you get an error message?
Oh, I see the error message. It looks like there is a problem with this version of WirelessKeyView.
Please download a different version on this link:
I tested that one and it works on Windows XP.
Yes, it doesn't look like it is a valid wireless network password (key).
Are you able to change the current network password ***** your router and then check if the Windows XP computer will remember the new password?
OK, you can do as last resort.
Do you use the built-in Windows XP wireless connection manager to scan and connect to wireless networks, or you use a program that came with the wireless network adapter?
Are you able to start a program that came with the wireless network adapter?
The problem seems to be with the Windows XP wireless network settings since it does not save the correct password.
Can you use a program that came with the wireless network drivers to scan and connect to your wireless network?
OK, you can try with that and let me know the results.
You can do it on your Windows XP computer since you should be able to connect the first time. The problem appears when connecting the second time since the incorrect password ***** been saved.
However, if that doesn't work, use another computer and then type the new password ***** your Windows XP computer. Make sure to delete the saved Wi-Fi profile first.
Since the problem seems to still be there, I suggest changing the wireless network password ***** your Verizon router to something else. You can then connect and check if the new password ***** be properly saved on your Windows XP computer.
In case you don't know how to change the wireless network password, let me know the make and model of the Verizon router you have and I will provide the instructions for you.
