    Acer Aspire Can See Wireless Networks But Won

    I have just installed Meerkat on an Acer Aspire laptop, it can see various wireless networks but for some reason can't connect to them. However when I turn my HTC Desire into a hotspot it connects to that fine. Why can it connect to my phone yet not any routers? Any help greatly appreciated.

    You need a password for the others probably, it would show this in the wireless dropdown.

    My Desire requires a password too.

    But do you have the passwords for the ones you can't link to?
