Yes my copy of Windows is legit on this one. My other comp with good specs that I like was pirated, so now I can't use it and it it's the corner of this getting all dusty. I never found a way to get a working product key for it. :( Haha. I'll call Dell first, and if they can't do anything I'll buy that network card.

Edit: Hmm, you both think its my OS? I'll reformat tomorrow then after I copy all of my stolen music on a CD. :lol: Grr, I hate reformating.

Yes you can. Right-click in the cmd window, select 'Mark', highlight the test and press enter. See:

Hey look I am a nood at this stuff, really but I too have a central computer connected to a router and we have a second computer connected wirelessly.  Yes. the wireless adapter is a linksys and what we have found is sometimes the network web key must be entered again even though we can see it is listed for the second computer.. 

So, we wiped the WEP key entry and entered it again and then press the connect button and yes there we go, it connects.  I can't explain it but this has happened enough that it is my understanding based on what you are saying here it could be your problem too if you are using a web key.  Anyway, give it a try I am only trying to help.

Sincerely,

compuworm
