Re: Linksys Adapter Just Stopped Working, But Works On Another Computer!!!
In case someone has this same issue I'm posting the solution.
So I called Linksys who at first told me to contact the computer manufacturer because the WiFi would work on the older computer, and said, listen "It works with on this newer computer just fine without security enabled" So he had me use WEP instead of WPA and also adjusted my channels, etc. He had me set the radio band to Standard 20mhz and channel to 11 - 2.462Ghz then save each setting. Oh, and the 128 bit encryption is something like 20 characters and the 64 bit is the ten characters, he had me use 64 bit. Also, the term passkey for WEP and WPA seem to be different or something. WPA only uses that really long code, where as with WEP I was supposed to leave it blank, because once I "generated" the key under WEP and using key 1, all I had to do was use the "key code 1" area and like I said leave passkey blank. Anyway, basically something on or just configured on this computer can't handle WPA or above, therefore I'm left with WEP that is now running hot, good stuff, a pain in the rear-end but it's done.
