Exclamation Won't connect to the Wireless network!!
Hello
I am currently unable to connect to my home wireless network on my laptop, even though my brother is able to on his laptop. I am using the Odyssey Access Client Manager as my school is wirless and uses this wirless program. My windows wireless comes up with the following text. "this problem has occured because the network did not assign a network adress to the computer." Could my school wirless stop me from going onto my home wireless?
If any one could help that would be most appreciated.

Make sure you are not using MAC address filtering and try to connect with encryption disabled. If successful you should be able to re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Login to the router, preferably using an ethernet connected computer. Navigate to the wireless (or security) section and look for encryption mode and for anything with MAC in the name. The router user manual is often a good source of specifics; it can usually be found on a CD that came with the router and/or on the manufacturer's web site.
