Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have an ancient Dell Latititude C600 that works great on all unsecured wireless networks i've ever tried it on but whenever i try to connect to my home wireless network i get a message that says, in full, "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again."
I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with my computer because it works on other nets. The only thing I know to do is shut everything down and restart. That was, of course, no help at all.
The wireless router is a Linksys WRT54GS ver.6 and it works great on other laptops I've had. For some reason these two just aren't getting along ;)
Hi, May be your router is now running a more secure algorith and needs password etc which the old one can't handle. You may have to downgrade your router to the older system..not a good idea.

Tips for a great answer:
3. In the "Network and Internet Connections" window, click on "Network Connections."
4. Once in Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection then select "View available wireless networks"
5. If the wireless network is a secured network, please refer to the manual of the wireless router to make it unsecured for the purpose of testing the wireless network.
NOTE: Acer does not recommend leaving a wireless network unsecured and is not responsible for data accessed due to unsecured wireless networks.
6. If the wireless network is listed, the wireless adapter is functioning properly. If unable to connect to the wireless router, go through "Before you start" at the beginning of this article.
