I have a Dell notebook with a built in wireless. Everything works fine when I connect to an encrypted network [home]. I cannot connect to the network in my shop [open, no encryption] If I turn off the encryption on my home network, I cannot connect to it either. In both [non-encrypted] instances, the computer recognizes the network, sends packets, but receives nothing back. I'm stumped, any suggestions?

XP has a checkbox or something that tells it to not connect to unsecure networks. Do you have anything like this in your utility? Are you using wep or wpa?
