Hi,
I am unable to connect to my wireless home network. All the other wireless networks work but not my home network. It just wont connect. Wont even give me the option to type in the password.
I have tried restarting both the laptop and the modem to no use. Also, I have reinstalled the wireless driver but to no use....Help?
EDIT: btw, I used to be able to connect to this network a few hours ago, my modem was acting strange so I reset it....and now this

How did you reset the modem? was it a reboot, or a full reset?? Try disabling encryption (turn off passwording)

Ok got it working. The problem was due to the old password saved on my preferred networks. Changed that and got it working. Stupid wireless wasn't even asking for it.
