I have HP Pavillon notebook running Vista. When trying to connect to wireless I keep getting the unidentified network error. The other two laptops in my home can connect to the wireless just fine, so there is no issue with the wireless router or SPrint aircard. I have completed everything I could find on the internet about this error - without success. I have spent over 4 hours with HP support, most recently they had me perform a "recovery" to set all hardware and software back to factory settings. Still no luck. This computer can connect fine with an ethernet cable. I can successfully connect to wireless, but cannot get on the internet. Any ideas? If yes, I dont know a lot about computers... so simple steps would be appreciated.

What model wireless card do you have in your notebook?
If you have an Atheros, try this driver and see if that fixes it.
