    Paul, you have been a great help, I'm almost there.

    I installed Wicd from source and was immediately able to connect to my neighbor's unsecured network but not my secured network. I unsecured it but still no luck.

    It would appear that the problem is with my router, although Vista (Yuck) has no problem with it.

    Thanks again Paul, I think I'm heading in the right direction.

    John

    I would think that either you are choosing the wrong type of connection encryption information, or you are incorrectly inputting the password. I know you feel that the password you are putting in is correct, but I urge you to double and triple check. You would not be the first to find that they had made an error.

    You can manually scan and see available networks with this command.
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    I have triple checked the password and ESSID is correct in the scan. I will try again tomorrow.

    Thanks Paul
