    Help pls! Network marked as hidden!

    I seriously can't connect to my wifi router... It's a linksys router, and i'm using an MSI laptop running in Windows Vista Home Basic... when i go into the "Connect to a network" window, i can see the name of the wireless network, but then, when i click connect on it, it shows up an error.. and when i diagnosed the problem, it says:

    "windows cannot connect to "linksys"."

    This network is marked as a hidden network and is either not in range of this computer or the wireless settings saved on this computer do not match the settings of the network."



    I dont know anything about ssid, how to turn it on of off, etc... Please help me

    This is usually caused by using different encryption on your computer than you've set up on the router, or typing in the wrong key.

    See Setting up a wireless network.
