When trying to connect wireless the networks are shown however when you try to connect the popup security window will not stay up long enough to put in the password to connect to the wireless network.  Is there another way to get this password in or is there a setting I can go to that will allow me to get this popup window to stay longer. This computer is running Windows 7

Are you connecting using the Windows Wireless Config?  some laptops have built in applications to do so such as Intel Pro Wireless Set or Dell Wireless Utility.  Check your start menu > all programs for such utility.

When you say the window disappears, does it just lose focus?  Have you tried alt + tabbing to bring it back up?
