my family and I are visiting my uncle in Nashville. I am trying to connect my laptop to my uncle's wireless Internet but it won't connect. My brother's will and has the exact same settings for the network. I've done everything I know to to do. When I connect to the modem, it shows unidentified network and between the network and Internet icon, it shows a red x. When I click it to diagnose the problem, it gives the options to automatically get IP address and to reset wireless adapter. I've done both with no luck. Anyone know what else to do?

I don't rant; I complain logically
..is that your computer's network card / chip uses a different wireless security standard. If your's has WEP, and the network's router uses WPA / WPA2, they can't communicate (or vice versa). Try switching off encryption on the router. If it then works, that's the issue.
