Can't connect to a known network

    The PDF posted doesn't help.

    I get the "checking requirements" but then it just says I can't connect. It won't even give me a chance to put in the password.

    Have you tried to reset your router?

    You will need to set the wireless back up after the reset.

    You should also ensure that this router is using WPA2 Security with AES encryption, WEP won't work anymore.

    Works thanks!

    EDIT: I reset the router.

    EDIT EDIT: It worked for a while, but then same problem.
    I changed the MAC address of my adapter, and it now works.
    FOR FUTURE REFERENCE:
    Change Your MAC address and it will work if you have a similar problem.
