I have a Inspiron laptop with an Intel Pro a/b/g wireless card in it. The Device Manager shows that the card is working. My router is a/b/g/n with an SSID broadcasting, open authentication, and WEP encryption. 5 of my other computer connect with no problem. My Vista laptop has a problem, though. When I go through the normal wifi connection dialogue, it sees the SSID of my router. When I select connect, it spins a while and then comes back and asks for the key and also a Domain Name. I have not configured any domains, and have no idea what to try to tell it. Leaving this field blank doesn't work.
From the laptop's Command prompt, ping of the router IP fails. When I type the ipconfig command, the assigned address is 0.0.0.0.
Appreciate any help.
PS- I am wondering: under what conditions does Vista try to get a Domain Name for its wireless connect dialogue?
