Netgear wireless router and usb adaptor. Been working perfectly for 2 years. Suddenly - PC (Desktop XP machine) won't connect. Changed the usb adaptor - no change, changed the router - no change, changed the network name - no change. Changed the WEP security code - no change. Turned off security - works! Any ideas what is happening here and how to fix it? All systems worked perfectly on laptop.
Fruit Bat - funny you shouold think of MS update - apparently there was one on Sunday and this problem occurred on Monday! WEP might not be that secure, but it has worked for me on dozens of machines for several years, and I don't like things that suddenly stop working, so I really would like to know what has happened here - it has to be a problem with the machine as the laptop works perfectly.
