I just moved into a new apartment. I currently have 2 laptops with me. One is running XP, the other Vista.

The one that is running XP was able to connect to the building's wireless just fine, while the one running Vista has not had any success at all. I do not know much about the router, other than it is security enabled, because it does not appear to be in my apartment or any of the common areas. I can only assume it is in one of the other apartments, which would mean that I would need to contact the landlord/other tenants to locate it.

The vista computer has been able to connect to other networks in the area, just not this particular one (and as the apartment network is the only one that works well from here, it is important that I get connected).

I tried searching for solutions first, but did not find anything to solve tis particular problem. Can anyone give me some suggestions for how I might go about solving it? I have tried clearing the DNS cache and restarting the computer without any luck. The computer is set to automatically receive new IP addresses. 192.168.1.1 does not work because the router is password protected, and I cannot lookup a default username and password without knowing the brand.

Thank you

Okay, I know a little more now:

My landlord says that it is a linksys wireless G broadband router-model: WRT54GS (he did not give the version in his message if that is important).

Also, for some reason, I cannot access http://192.168.1.1 on my Vista computer, and the XP laptop had to be returned to its owner.
