    Hi,
    i have just bought a sony laptop, i have tried to connect to my landlords
    wireless router with no luck.
    i have made sure the wireless switch is on. it evern picks up a signal from
    someone down the road, but not the router in the same building.
    Any ideas at all on why this is?

    i am desperate for a solution, as i have had it for a week and not been able
    to surf.
    my landlords computer is able to access internet.

    ask your landlord for the name of the hidden SSID and the security
    key.

    depending on who his provider is, he may have restrictions on
    sharing his connection with another household.
