Hi my name is Drew and i am 14, sorry for any spelling or gramer mistakes Razz

I have win xp pro
and a linkses wierles g set up BUT every once and a wile when my Internet gose out and i use my nabers network it changes from a 128 bit key to a 64 bit key and the only way i can get it back is to re install windows

as you can see spelling is not my strong point Razz Razz

any how i am a dj at radio kaos ( and i realy need to get my esk top back up to speam by Monday for my next show

it would work out best if we could use (skype, team speakm, or ventrilo) so i can talk i hate typing but if that is the only way that is kool

Answer -
I might do an instant messenger chat but that involves even more typing. Sorry. I hated typing too but I have gotten used to it over the years. Now I type fast enough to make people dizzy. Anyway on the workstation are you using Windows to control the wireless settings or the software that came with the card? I recomend sticking with the software if you have it. If it goes out on you try uninstalling the adapter. You shouldn't have to reinst all of windows.
Answer -
Ok, so you are running fine now you just want to prevent this from happening again. I am not sure what caused the problem so I will have to guess. Go to and download ad-aware. Run this about once a week. Also make sure you have a recent anti-virus. Virus or spyware is the most likely culprit.
Answer -
It sounds like software that comes with the card is messed up. You might try a different wireless card like a usb card etc. Is this an internal wireless card or a pcmcia card? The internal cards generally suck. I would get a new USB or PCMCIA card and try that.
Answer -
Well I am out of ideas on that one. It should always let you set the key to 128 if it let you do it once. If you got Norton etc I guess we can rule out virus. You tried different cards so we can rule out card or drivers. I am stumped sorry.
