    I am trying to get access to the WiFi connection in my complex. I am able to do it on a laptop but with built in WiFi. I have a belkin Wireless G USB network adapter hooked up to my desktop and am unable to connect to anything. Am I missing something here? As far as I know the connection is unsecured, but am really unsure.

    Laptops with integrated wifi usually have much better antennas than you get when you add wifi to a computer. The desktop probably just can't get enough signal to connect.

    I have multiple bars in the status area, but I'm no expert on what its supposed to look like.
