    I have tried everything. I recently moved out of the parents house and into my new house and upgraded to an N-Router from a G-Router. Now before my PC even starts up it crashes with the blue screen of death. I've isolated the problem to have something to do with the compatibility between my Linksys WRT160N Wireless-N router and my Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI adapter. When I take the computer back to my parents house it works and connects fine to the old network. If I unplug the antenna from the PCI adapter the PC works (no internet.) If I disconnect the power supply from N-Router the PC works fine (no internet.) But if I put the antenna back in or plug the N-router back in it immediately goes from being fine to the blue screen of death. Can anyone help?

    I should mention that I can use the internet fine with my laptop and iPod touch.

    Get a Wireless N adapter or a Wireless G router and I'm thinking that would solve the issue, though I may be wrong.

    But before you do that, I say update the drivers on the Wireless G adapter.

    I was kind of thinking I should upgrade to a Wireless-N PCI card and that would solve it. But I kind of looked around some other forums and it seems that there may be a hot-fix for a software issue that I could apply to my PCI card and it would fix the blue screen of death problem. Those posts dealt with different brands though. Thanks for replying!
