I just joined this forum board. I hope this question hasn't already been asked and im sorry if this post is in the wrong section.
I just bought a laptop that has the centrino technology built in. I also bought a wireless router (linksys 802.11 b model), it seems to be working perfectly fine with it, however, when i take a look at my "Available Wireless Networks", i see a bunch of different Access Points(i think thats what they are called) and a couple of them are secured but some are unsecured. Sometimes i can connect to an UNSECURED network but sometimes, even though the signal is very good, it won't connect to the unsecured network. I once disabled my firewall completely and all of a sudden it actually connected to an unsecured network but thne when i tried again it wouldn't work.
Any ideas why it won't connect even though the signal is high and it is unsecured? Could it be because the person has a different router or something? Sorry if i sound like a [bleep]....i'm not too familiar with this kinda stuff but i have done a fair amount of research but unable to find any answers.
