    Nice, I didn't know it could do that. Is going from XP to Vista going
    to be a problem for the profile to work? Thanks.

    > Michael
    I tried this and in order to find out how to use LELA for this purpose,
    I had to get on Linksys support chat. So I did that and the guy said I
    can't do this (transfer settings electronically), but I can print the
    settings in order to input them into another computer. So I followed
    his instructions for that and I received an unhandled exception error,
    in which case he told me to call support.

    I also tried doing this through Intel which was about as difficult to
    export and import the profile, but at least I figured out how to do it
    eventually and it is still not working, still giving me the same error
    message, "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not
    match the requirements of the network." I get this error exportng from
    an XP machine that has the same adapter and is connected to the same
    wireless network.

    If you or anyone else has any more suggestions, I'll try anything once!
    Thanks.

    Very true, but I don't think that will work because my only copy of
    vista is the OEM that came with this laptop so I don't think it's
    possible to upgrade with it. Our next step is to down one of our
    current "certified Vista compatible" WAPs and mess around with the
    settings until we find out how vista can connect to it wirelessly. Next
    step after that is too purchase a new wireless router in order to see if
    that works better with vista. I'm really sick of dealing with this
    issue and vista's problems, but I am very greatful for all your help
    you've given!! Thanks again.
