When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address

SOURCE: latitude d400 doesn't show wireless networks

Chcek if there's a wifi switch and if it's turned on. Try going to a wifi hotspot and see if your system can detect any wireless networks. If not, uninstall and reinstall your wireless drivers.

You do need to be within range of a wireless signal.
Have you installed the drivers for the card properly?
Does the wireless card show up under "network adapters" in Device Manager? If not you may have to reinstall the drivers for the card. Also make sure that it is FULLY inserted into the PCMCIA slot for it to be recognized by windows and be in working order.

It sounds like you have an access control (allowed MAC address) list set up on your wireless router and have not added your Xbox 360's MAC address to the list.
