I apologize if this has been posted before but I searched and didn't get any results so here goes.

I just installed Ibex on a clean Toshiba Satellite and installed all the updates etc. with a wired connection. However when trying to connect to my dlink router it would not recognize my router nor the five or six others in the area. Sometimes my router will show up and ask me for the password but after a few minutes it pops up again and asks for the password (the password space is already filled in with about 20 random numbers and letters). So I decided I'd dual boot with XP. I installed it and was connected wirelessly within seconds. I know it isn't a hardware problem but maybe I need to changes the permissions or something in my routers settings? Thanks for any help.
