It will work when I connect it using an ethernet cable but it won't connect to the wireless.

When I run the network diagnostics, it says The wireless network key does not match or something like that

Not entering any key...My router is unsecured so I shouldn't need one right?

Are you sure you're connecting to your router? You shouldn't be receiving an error related to a key if you're connecting to your own wireless router configured without encryption.

Yeah, I'm sure.

I've never used this laptop before so I might have to change some settings or something...i don't know though

Bump...

I watched a video yesterday and it showed someone open up "Wireless Zero Configuration" I gave it a shot and to my surprise, it connected as soon as I opened it...I didn't even change any settings when I opened it.

But once I turned it off, I couldn't get it to connect again but maybe this will help someone pinpoint the problem
