Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

Not able to type in network key for wireless

\015 Hey there. I just formated my IBM t40 and after I run all the up-dates including service pack 2 I try to connect to my romemates wireless connection (secured connection). The problem is, that it tries to connect without asking for the network key, and it failes to connect. An error message appears saying, that "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have tried everything I can imagine also in the properties of the wireless network and have no idears left. Before formating the computer I had no problems connecting to the network. Do you maybe have any idea of the problem?\015
