Default Wireless Networking Problems

sponsored links
Ok i have a main PC, a pc in my room, and a laptop. I have the main PC connected to cable internet with a linksys router 4 switch 802.11b 2.4ghz. And a linksys wireless PCMCIA card on the laptop that hooked up to the router with ease. But my room pc doesnt seem to want to connect to the router. I dont know what im doing wrong. The adapter is a netgear USB MA101 802.11b. Is it because its a netgear? It seems to pick up the signal... but it wont connect. Something isnt right. I know its not the router because it connected to the laptop with ease... so what gives??!! Any help would be awesome... thanks

a mention of what OS you are using would be helpful.

Sounds like a settings problem to me, wireless cards are usually fairly compatible so I wouldn't think it was that, although you can never be sure.
