I am trying to connect a new Fujitsu Siemens laptop running Vista Home Premium to an existing unsecured wireless router (Netgear).
The laptop detects the router but will not allow connection. Help!!!

Could a firewall be stoping you?

open your router settings ..... select wireless settings ....select setup access list ... tick turn access control on .... from the available wireless stations you should see unknown and a mac address this should be your laptop click apply
then exit..
