I can see a unsecured wireless signal but can't connect

  1. Hi,

    I have a following problem:

    I can see my home wireless network in the Available Networks window, but my
    computer won't connect to it. It will connect to any other network, just not
    my own. This started occuring after I got it from repair (I had WLAN card
    changed).

    Please advise,

    Nina

    Do you mean you have other networks nearby? If you do, put in a password for
    those networks that you do NOT want to connect to, so that your computer
    just WONT connect to it.

    Also, check that your wi-fi NIC isn't set up just to connect to ad-hoc
    networks. If it is, it wont connect to your router.
