cracked my problem
The issue with this not connecting got me worried a little as well.
I had a MAC filter on my networks and it seemed that that was my biggest problem.
I do not know why but in stead of the MAC address I had initially on my phone, it got changed to something completely different. It would seem as if you need to go into the advanced settings to get rid of some irritating bogus MAC setting.
That is my guess.
All in all, once I got the right MAC address sorted, it worked smoothly.
