If it already says connected, then click disconnect first.
You can also do it from going to Control Panel, Network Connections, right click the Wireless network Connection and go to Properties, and go to the Wireless tab (I think it's called wireless...I don't have a wireless card around at the moment). There should be a list of networks toward the bottom, I'm fairly sure you can double click on those to edit the properties, so you should be able to enter the password there too.
So let me get this right, I need to disconnect and then re connect with another password, or edit the properties? How will I know if its the right password?...bearing in mind it it didn't reject the last one? Or, presumably, If I have entered the right password, then I will have internet connection? Are the passwords case sensitive? Sorry, all these questions!
I will try this tonight and see how I get on...Wish me luck!
In the meantime, Why would it sometimes say that I need to renew my IP address?
