      I cant connect to my router

      I've just got a Toshiba A210-17I laptop running Vista, and try as I might, I can't get it to connect to my router. The router is connected to my PC running XP, and also another pc upstairs on a wireless network.

      The laptop recognises that there is a wireless signal there, but won't connect as it states that windows did not receive a response from the wireless network.

      The signal strength is excellent, and I'd even be able to pick up next doors signal if I had the password!

      Has anyone any ideas?

      Most likely is that you haven't entered the encryption password correctly in the laptop. To confirm, temporarily turn off encryption in the router and see if it connects.
