Not asking for Passphrase on connection

I am trying to connect to a wireless router through my laptop and the
connection is Security Enabled. I know the passphrase but when it tries
to connect, it will not ask me to enter the passphrase like it has in
the past. It just says Unable to connect. Diagnosing the problem did not
help. I did try to connect to a neighbors security enabled network and
it DID ask to enter a passprase. Only My network is not asking for it.
My router is a U.S. Robotics 8054

Any ideas? I'm stuck. :sa:

Re: Not asking for Passphrase on connection
Hi
Make sure that your SSID is you own and unique name and not the Default.
Clean up the Preferred Wireless Network list, and try again.
If it does not help try to change the passphrase in he Router..
