Default Cannot connect to Wireless Network after BSOD

sponsored links

Hi, I'm having some issues with my wireless network. Today after installing AOL instant messenger and leaving the computer on for about 10 min. I got a BSOD, so I figured it was AOL, so I removed it, but now I cannot connect to my wireless network, I'm on a laptop by the way. When I insert my network card (802.11g Linksys Wireless-G Notebook adapter model: WPC54G ver1.2) I get the wireless icon on my system tray with a red X on it, and after a few seconds I get a balloon that says: "Wireless networks detected. One or more wireless networks are in range of this computer. To see the list and connect, click this message." So I click it, but when the new window comes up where the wireless network should be listed, I get: "No Wireless networks in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. To see an updated list, click "Refresh network list." So I hit Refresh, and I get the same message.

I already tried turning off and on the router, (BEFW11S4 Wireless access point router with 4 port switch) resetting it to its factory settings, uninstalling my network card and installing it again, I already downloaded and installed the latest drivers from Linksys website, but no luck. I have no clue of what could be wrong. Well, if I use the utility that came with the drivers, I am able to connect to the network but just for about 10 sec. then it dies and I am not able to connect again, only if I remove and insert the card again, but just for about 10 more sec.

Any ideas?

Well, I guess I should've waited a bit longer before posting, but anyway.

I got if fixed, for anyone that's curious or has the same/similar problem, this is what I did:

Control Panel --> Network Connections, right click on the wireless conection and choose properties. Hit the "Wireless Networks" tab and unticked the first option: "Use windows to configure my wireless network settings", click OK, and connect using the software that came with the drivers.

Looks like windows was messing up....what a surprise.

Thanks anyway.
