I'm glad that you've had success with your connection Mr. Goodbar. I too have had a relatively easy time of configuring my personal router at home. Connecting to a wifi hotspot is a whole different matter. I've tried 3 separate wifi points on on Campus (All of which are unsecured 802.11g), the Reader displays "Invalid Configuration" when viewing "WIFI Network Settings". This is rather infuriating. The men and women who are willing to pay a premium for these features are academics and professionals who are on the move. Not being able to access a standard 802.11 wifi hotspot is dissapointing to say the least. To ensure that the wifi connection was not at fault, I removed from my bag, my two year old Mp3 player and was able to successfully connect. The network was not refusing connections.
