    "any"
    (without the quotes)
    for ESSID.
    I didn't set any DNS servers, but I will boot back in to Linux and try typing "any"
    in the ESSID.

    OK, typing in "any" in the ESSID area did bring me one step closer to getting on the net. It let's me log into the linksys network that I mentioned didn't work, how can I direct it to the right access point? I'm on a business trip, so I can't try it on my home network, but I'll go to the local restaurant with wifi and try it there and post my results later.

    I'm just not believing how many access points iwlist picked up!! You must be in the heart of a very crowed city or residential apartment building! And almost all of them are named "linksys!" lol... I wouldn't be surprised if your wireless device is just scratching its head about which one it's supposed to connect to! lol.

    Anyway... when you get home, rename YOUR router to whatever you want other than "linksys," and make sure you have the same indentical name for your ESSID in the network configuration utility in your laptop...

    I've used my Linux laptop on the road from time to time and have run into similar problems. I just run iwlist scanning, find the name of the network I'm trying to connect to, then input that exact name as the ESSID. And usually always come away connected...

    Let me know how you come out...

    If no joy, try this... Look on the DNS tab and input the ip of the linksys router which is likely 192.168.1.1. Worth a try...
