Sometimes I'm not as stupid as I think I am. I've been avoiding trying the wireless connection on the new laptop because I knew I couldn't remember the network key that I set.  Well I thought I *might* know what it was but it turns out I was wrong (but that was the admin id...I wasn't completely off base in a sense...).

But it turns out that I wrote it on the Quick Installation guide. I like it when I do sensible things like that.
