I have recently purchased a acer aspire 5715z running vista basic. However it won't connect wirelessly to my router which is a Thompson speedtouch 580. The laptop is showing the router but won't connect to the internet and have got the message - The wireless secruity settings on the computer do not match settings on speedtouch 76D7D2.
However it will connect to the internet when I use the ethernet cable.
I currently run windows xp on my other laptop and have no trouble connecting on that do you think it could be that vista isn't compatible with the router thanks for looking David

That message usually means the security key that you typed in is not correct.
