I do not understand the questions about interference as my problem is getting connected automatically.

I have downloaded the WI FI Tester and am going to tery to attach a print screen copy. I used the atttach icon on top and hope it worked.

This is very bizarre behaviour from Win7...

Are you sure you have the latest driver for your revision of this wireless adapter? There are 4 HW rivisions of this card, you will have to open case to look at label on card to determine if version 1.0, 2.0, etc...

Are you certain that you do not have any Linksys software installed other than the drivers? If there is anything Linksys showing in Control Panel/Programs & Features remove it! Another possiblity... have you recently upgraded this card from a previous? If so look for that card manufacturers software and remove it as well.

Please keep us updated...

Thanks for posting the Xirrus snap shot, it looks good, we just want to make sure.
You may also try disabling any unnecessary Startup Apps and Services. Click on Start and type msconfig press enter. Pls. disable Bonjour Service as well.

What type of AV/Security/Firewall Software do you have installed?

I have not installed a new card. This is the one I used on this machine with XP and then WIN7, andI think it was working OK a while ago.

It sort of come to mind that I started having problems after I installed SP1.

I uninstalled SP1 a couple of days ago just in case and it made no difference.

I am also having a problem with several of my Adobe programs not loading because they hang up when loading 'ExporterAVI.prm'. I can not find any info about this problem anywhere on the Net including Adobe.

Thinking the problem was a bad WIN7, yesterday I did a nondestructive, in-place, total reinstall of WIN7, hoping that would help. It did not.

I have decided that I will have to live with this problem for another month until I have more time to reformat and start from scratch.

If you have more ideas, I am willing to try.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

So are you using a third party software to manage connections or native Windows?

Every thing is native Windows 7 to my knowledge.

I solved the problem by REFORMATTING & REINSTALLING.

I was having some problems with several Adobe programs so that was the simplest solution.

Now I can connect automatically and my Adobe programs work.

I have a different problem now but will start a new thread for that problem.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Connect router wirelessly to main router
Recently I bought a TP-Link WR841N router and, unaware of what it needed, there had to be an ethernet cable coming from the main router (BT Homehub 3) for it to work. Is there any way I can connect these two wirelessly? I don't mind whatever way I connect it to my PC.
