    Can't reconnect to router after router reset


    Whenever I lose my wireless connection to my router (I connect to a Linksys
    Wireless G router), I'm not able to reconnect to it unless I restart my
    computer completely. The reason I can't connect is that it says my wireless
    security key is incorrect, and even when re-typing in the security key it
    will always say it is incorrect until I restart my computer. I was wondering
    if anyone can shed some light on why this is occuring and how I can go about
    fixing it. For a wireless network card, I use a Compact Wireless-G USB
    adapter.

    what model and hardware version linksys G router? what firmware?

    what driver for the USB wireless adapter?

    do you have an IP when in this state? do you have an IP but no
    gateway? (if yes, is
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b/933872/en-us your
    problem)

    Thanks for the help. I don't have an IP when in this state. I'm downloading
    the update you linked for me and I hope it works =).
