I am trying to get a Dell studio 540 to connect to our home wireless network, but when I enter the password the connection fails. I know all the settings are correct because another computer on this network has no plroblem connecting. I Looked at the network profile again (in the Dell) and realized the password was different than what I set up. I can't see the password, even if I click show characters. I re-entered the correct password (10 characters) P, re-tried the connection, it failed, and when I refreshed the profile screen the wrong password (8 characters) re-appeared. How do I clear this mystery password?
