Specs: Windows XP
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Intel processor. I spend a fair amount of time at my boyfriend's house and cannot use his wireless network. He has the network key, and I used it, but all that happened is that it kept saying my computer was acquiring the network address. There are several unsecured networks nearby, but it makes me nervous to use them. Any suggestions?

Tell the adapter to use windows to control the wireless connection & stop the manufacturer software in startup.

Your BF may know the WAP passphrase but there may be other filters active in the router to block "foreign" devices. Does he have access to the router admin interface to check /adjust mac filters?
