"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

2 common causes of this are; 1) you must use a complex password 6 characters or longer or it will fail,  and you must have a network connection.  It can be to a switch with no other connections, but it must see a connection.
