Ok First off Im retarded when it comes to computers....anyways I have a wireless router that is working just fine my roomate Can connect with his laptop no problems full strenght works perfect. On my laptop however I cannot connect to our router. Our router has a password and when i bring up to connect to a network it says its an unsecured network which it should not say. On my roomates laptop it says its secured but on mine it does not. I was able to use our network for months and i must have done something because now i cant connect to ours I can connect to other networks just not ours. I even tried taking the Ethernet out of router and plugging into laptop but still wont let me connect to that network. I have a Dell ispiron 1545....so basically there is nothing wrong with connection it has to be my computer something i did
