How I solved My wireless internet problem
Hey I thought I would let you all know how I solved my wireless internet issue. I have a a Dell Inspiron 1720, My wireless internet would try to connect and an authentication key screen would keep popping up asking for the code. Then it would keep trying to connect to no avail. I tried alot of different things nothing worked. So i read a thread about downloading Wicd manager. I downloaded it, and at first it completely killed my connection and I couldn't connect. It said encryption had to be enabled
I then got back on vista and googled it. Someone posted about going to the advanced tab and enabling encryption. So I went there and enabled it, then it needed and encryption key. I was like "oh great, how the hell do I get that?" So I googled it again. finally found a post with an IP address to go to for Linksys. I went there and went to wireless settings, advanced wireless tab (i think) then there was my encryption key. I wrote it down, entered it in and finally got it to work. I hope this helped somebody!
