Re: Vista prompting for Network Security Key where there is none.
If there is No Encryption but a password it seems that you do not have
direct Wireless connection but some kind of a logon server (like RADIUD)
If this is the case you probably need to make sure that the Acer Network is
correctly set to connect to professional Network.
