I'm new to laptops, otherwise computer-literate. I have worked for more than a day, but can't figure this one out.
I have a Win 7, 64-bit Toshiba, and a Motorola SURFboard®
SBG6580 Series Wi-Fi Cable Modem Gateway. Works! Laptop connects seamlessly to the Motorola wirelsee network.
Now, a friend has a Dell Inspiron 6000 with an XP operating system and a wireless card. It will connect to an unprotected network in the area, but it refuses to connect to my Motorola wireless network (in the same apartment).
I had a homegroup, but deleted it. It is possible that I have, by mistake, deleted the network key ("password"), so, when a write it in from the Dell, I believe it should work, but it does not. And I can for the life of me not remember how to delete and reset the Network Key.
Any help would be appreciated, since I am so tired (3 days driving long shifts from Cleveland, Ohio, to Boca Raton, Florida, and getting stuck behind accidents a few times).
