Trying to connect... Vista is asking for a "Logon Domain"?

    I have a relatively new Linksys router installed. I am able to connect no problem with my laptop running XP. However, we recently got a new Dell running Vista, and when I go to "Enter Credentials" while creating a network profile, it asks me for three pieces of information. 1. Username 2. Password 3. Logon Domain. I have 1 and 2, but have no idea where to find my Logon Domain.

    Can anyone give me any advice??

    Does it say anything about a dial-up connection? I know XP used to do that to me until I disabled the 56k network card. It was weird. Go to the network connection settings and disable the dial-up connection (if you have one). If you don't, I'm not sure what's going on haha.

    Anyone know the answer to this? I work in tech support for a small ISP and have seen this problem twice this week. I've even remote logged into the customers router and verified it was setup as only a simple 64bit WEP key yet vista kept asking for a username, password, and logon domain.

    All cases seem to involve both Windows Vista and Linksys. I'm leaning towards a Vista issue. I did everything I could with the customer such as deleting all wireless profiles in Vista and resetting router to factory defaults. Ended having to tell her to run the router without any encryption.
