  1. Hi, I use all linksys for networking. The main computer has the router and everything works fine on it. I have another computer with a wireless adaptor and everything works fine on it as well. However, I have one computer, that, when I plug in the wireless adaptor, it says the signal stength is excellent, however, the packets sent is such a small number going up VERY SLOW, and the packeets received usually hangs around the number 5. I can't do ANYTHING on the internet. It says the page can't be displayed and I can't connect to anything. However, if I take this exact adaptor and plug it into another computer, it works fine.......so I assume the problem is on the computer's end. What could it possibly be? PLEASE help, Thanks

    You might see something similar if you put in the wrong (WEP) encryption key for your wireless network.

    Double check to make sure your WEP key is correct, if you even have one.
