I recently purchased the Linksys E3000 router. My old network set up had been 100% wired, but with the new router we have converted to wireless on some of the internet capable devices. I have 2 pc's side by side in separate room from the router that we purchased wireless adapters for, the Linksys AE1000. One pc set up fine and accesses the internet with no issues. The second pc cannot connect the network. It sees the network with a good signal strength, but it times out when trying to connect.

I called tech support and have been through a variety of things with them to no avail so far.

Both of these pc's are running Windows XP SP3. On the one that won't connect, have already confirmed in device manager that the adapter is correctly installed. I uninstalled it, rebooted, reinstalled it anyway with no luck. With tech support already tried disabling the 5ghz band and changing the channel on the 2.4ghz band to 11.

I have confirmed several times I am entering the password in correctly, and I did pay attention to case sensitivity. I have also tried entering the passwork through the Windows Wireless Network Connection manager directly.

When I run ipconfig/all, it says under Media State: Media Disconnected.

I reset both TCP/IP and Winsock, still have the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

YAY....I fixed it. There was an error message on the USB port that said the drivers needed to be reinstalled. Did that, and after a couple of attempts, it works now.
