unable to connect to wireless with windows 7 starter

hi,

i am unable to connect to my a specific wireless connection. When i do try and connect it will not allow me to enter the security code to enable the wireless, instead it say something about windows not recogonising the connection. My windows is also in spanish which is driving me mad(bought the mini in spain).

i had managed to connect to the same wireless connection for a couple of days, i rebooted the router when on my mini and this seeemd to work, but this does not seem to work now. I realsie that this is not the best explanination but it is driving me insane as i can connect to other wireless connections as normal.

any help or advice would be much appreciated.

cheers,

bob

Try connecting with the passwords off. Also try with firewall and AV off.
