Geeks to Go - I am in need of help if you can offer some...hopefully I didn't overlook a previous posting that answered this question. Also bear in mind I'm not super tech savvy!

My boyfriend and I just moved into an apartment where the landlord has a wireless router (Activetec brand) with an unsecured network for an internet connection. We have a crappy old laptop with a D-Link wireless card, and while the signal strength is relatively low, it connects up fine to the network. We also have a Dell desktop and just bought a D-Link wireless card for that as well - the card seems to pick up the network signal loud and clear, but it doesn't want to connect. We compared the network connection properties on both the laptop and desktop, and the DNS servers are exactly the same, as are the rest of the settings.

Any ideas about why the desktop refuses to connect?

So many thanks for your help!
