I recently had to change my wireless connections password.

Customer Question
I recently had to change...
I recently had to change my wireless connection's password. I was able to connect my two computers and two moblie phones to the wireless using the new password. However, I was unable to connect my satellite radio. It doesn't seem to read the new password. I tried it doing it at a neighbor's house (also a Linksys) and it worked just fine. I have had the satellite radio for over four years and it worked on my old password. Do you have any suggestions to fix this? Thank you. [email protected]
