you need to enter your network password in that is what it is asking for to connect to the router it is the one you setup when you set up your network wireless sercurity details if you can not rember what you put reset your router and start again

Okay... should I un-install and then re-install the router? I believed I knew the password, but what I thought it was doesn't work...

I got the router this past Summer, to hook up my older computer (xp) and to my new (vista) computer, and when I installed the router everything worked well... I just bought this laptop (xp) and tried to get it connected also, but I've hit a clitch with the password and the other requirments for hookup..

If I uninstall the router from the (vista), and then, "turn on the older (xp) desktop and the (xp) laptop", and then re-install the router with (new passwords and all), do you believe they will all accept, recognize and connect to each other???

(I hope) ... Thanks for your previous answer, too...
