    Guys I cant seem to lock onto my wireless router with one laptop even
    though it works just fine on the one I'm writing this on???

    The laptop can see the router (full strength) but just sits on
    "Automatic"! When i double click to connect it says "Waiting for the
    Network......" then just goes back to "Automatic"..????
    Sometimes it even connects very briefly!!!???

    I'm at a loss! Funny thing is the same laptop has been able to connect
    to it b4 but i had to reset the router this morning... HELP!!!

    If you reset the router you wiped out your wep/wpa and ssid. You need to
    ensure these are set correctly in the router and all wirelessly connected
    computers.
