    Hi all, I just set up my first network. Bought a DLink router and desktop
    card and they seem to be working fine. Also bought a Gateway laptop with
    built in wireless. When I search for available networks mine shows up on the
    list. But when I try to connect it never does. Says it can't for unknown
    reason. Also says network is unsecure. The desktop is running XP and the
    laptop has Vista. Any help I can get with these problems would be great. Like
    I said I'm new to the wireless thing.

    Thanks, Steve

    May be this can Help, these pages describe the general principle
    Wireless Basic Configuration - http://www.ezlan.net/Wireless_Config.html
    Wireless Security - http://www.ezlan.net/Wireless_Security.htm
    These two pages have specific instructions for Vista.
