Vista: Wireless sees connections, but never actually connects

    My Dell Laptop can see my wireless router, but when I tell it to connect
    nothing happens and it still shows no connections. I've updated all drivers
    on the laptop. The problem seems to be with Vista. Hard wired connections
    work fine.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hi
    Make sure that the Router DHCP has enough IP to give.
    Start first with No Wireless encryption.
