Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
I set up my wireless router through my mac laptop, and it connects fine through the router. My desktop has the Microsoft MN-710 usb driver verson 188.8.131.52, can read all the surrounding routers in my complex, but can't pick up mine. I tried updating the firmware, which didn't work. I reset the security protocols, and made sure broadband was enabled. I set the settings on mixed, g only, n only, etc. and that didn't work! I tried unplugging the router and modem, etc etc, and it didn't work. Any ideas?
Software package lacks WPA patch for Windows XP for the MN-710.
Just a guess but I think your PC is unable to authenticate the AES encryption you probably have on your wifi router.
I would say go out and buy a new wifi dongle for your PC that can handle the speed of your new router anyway.
