    Hello, I am having troubles connecting my laptop to my wireless router. Currently, I am hardwired to my internet (totally defeating the purpose of having a laptop...). My computer sees the network, but when I try to connect it, it says "UNABLE TO CONNECT", yet I can connect to other networks... All the other computers in the house along with game consoles connected just fine once I put in our password. My patience is running low on this issue. Please help!

    Were you able to connect before that?

    Yeah. It doesn't make any sense.

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.
