Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router

1 Answer

Kicked off my newer PC!

I've been running my WRT300N on g/h mode for a while because my wife has an older XP laptop. I have a shiny new Dell E1705 with Vista and an internal N card. I finally bought a wireless-N notebook adapter and got it working fine with WPA2 Personal, AES encryption, on N. Now I can't connect my newer laptop at all. The "Connect to a network" screen just says, "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network"

    I'm not sure: Under "Wireless MAC Filter" (which is disabled) it shows no addresses. Under "Router Information" there is one listed as "Internet MAC Address." There is also a "Local MAC Address" under "Local Network" and then another one under "Wireless Network." Sorry for all the quotes. In some ways I'm a newbie and in others I'm o.k. My home wireless network is magic to me.

Must be old if it is running Win XP! No support any longer including antivirus and malware

Try tapping F8 as soon as you power it on. See if you can boot to Safe Mode. If not, Put the original installation disc in and get into the BIOS, normally by clicking Delete or Esc., Boot to the Disc and reinstall over the top of itself.

Invest in a new shiny faster one with Windows 10.

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow

Whenever that happens to me, at least to the mouse pad I restart my laptop and it fixes it...
If not then perhaps it's a hardware or software problem, maybe you could reinstall XP over again, or you could, as a last resort crack it open and see what's goin' on inside or have someone check it out for you (I wouldn't go that far though).
