I am using a wireless network in my apartment. There is no encryption or keys or any of that sort (I'm not very network savvy). It's an open network. I'm also picking up a network from my neighbor. I have a laptop in the living room which is hardwired with a LAN cable to the main hub and my computer is connected via an SMC 2662W USB adapter and works perfectly fine. However, another computer which has Windows XP SP1 can't connect. I succesfully installed the drivers for the adapter and it is recognizing both wireless networks, but won't let me connect whatsoever. I get a popup which says "One or more wireless network is available" and when I choose mine and check the box that says to go ahead and connect even though it is not secure, the popup just comes right back and I can't get to the internet. I can't connect to EITHER connection and I'm trying to figure this out. I am getting "excellent" signal strength from both connections. I want to connect to mine, but can someone help me out with this?
