I'm staying in an apartment in Germany for school, and there is wifi available and I have the correct password, but I cannot get connected. My network adapter is a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card. The channel is set to 11, the security type on the network is WPA2-PSK. I can, however, connect to the network with a wire. I've also found that I cannot connect to the network with my iPhone either. In fact, I tried to connect to another network with my iPhone, and it wouldn't work. I'm wondering if there is a channel or IP address issue.

When visiting England last year I also had the same problem, would connect sometimes but not for long and signal strength was good, and also could connect with wire. I beleive the problem is the WiFi card broadcast wavelength being slightly out of synch with router. Maybe buy a cheap USB WiFi modem, or borrow one, locally and see what happens.
Best of luck.

You should be able to connect as internet standards are worldwide. Just make sure your wireless drivers are up to date and check that you are entering the settings correctly.
