Guys I'm having a problem with my wireless router and I can't seem to solve it. I have a Dell Vostro 3500 with my wireless card drivers installed. Normally I am able to connect to wireless networks just fine. But I have got this new router and I can't connect to its wireless connection. I can't really see why since I am connected to the wired connection that goes trough the router right now.

I am able to detect the wireless network, then when I try to connect it asks for my passowrd and then it just keeps trying to connect over and over with no success. And it just happens with this network, I am able to connect to others just fine (like at my university or at my friend's house).

Please edit your question to include the type of router and the authentication method to the new router. Also, if there is anything in your system logs that shows the connection transaction process, that would be helpful to add as well. –  douggro May 29 '13 at 14:56
