I didn't get that far. When I tried to set to Key No.2 the router would not "reset"; that is the router screen "said' that it would be back in 8 seconds and never came back on. I then totally shut down rebooted etc. and went back in and rest the key back to No.1.
Does any of this make sense? Anyway, if you think it wise, I will try to use a different key no. for the password. I also got on the internet and found the router drivers etc. Would it be adviseable to download drivers and/or firmware? One alternative would be to use the reset function and start anew. What are your thoughts? Maybe I should chuck the router and get a new/replacement? BTW I will "Accept Answer" after your response even if nothing works.
I tried your suggestion with no luck Then out of desperation I turned everything off(except the Linksys), reset the Linksys, re-entered the password, reselected the wireless security, turned on the Kindle re-entered the password XXXXX(which was the same, even after I "re" generated the WEP) and the damn thing connected to the WI-Fi.
Now, however, my computer has to run through the ethernet connection(unless I go direct from modem to computer); it does not seem to connect with out it.
If you wish, you can let me know your thoughts. I have selected "Accept Answer" because of your efforts
