looks like my adapter to my pc is probably dead, as i've tried just about everything i can think of to get this thing back online and nothing has worked yet. windows detects the network, but refuses to connect. i'm hoping the thing isn't dead and is just suffering some setback. it's a b type router that i had for a few years now. it could be the death nail if this isn't connecting right. and if it's dead, what do you recommend for my windows desktop? also, our main router has been suffering from a few problems and i think i may have to get a new router (airport extreme anyone?). thanks.
