Windows 7: Trouble going from ethernet to wireless...

My router is N, with 11a and 11g. I do believe that a USB adapter will do the trick...no need to monkey around with instilling cards. I've got the choice of adapter question on Tom's Hardware forum.

Alright, I guess USB is good too. Keep us posted how it goes

Also, will your friend coming for a visit to check on your setup soon? I remember you mentioning it in another post.

Got the adapter and the computer is now working wirelessly, or if I choose, with ethernet. However, even with my friend's added knowledge, all we did was to verify that there are problems with establishing a new user. Still getting the same error message when trying to log in...can't find profile to load. He's working on it as a homework assignment (LOL).

Why are you trying to log in? You don't need to access shares etc

In order for the camera to recognize the computer and windows 7, I have to fill-in usernames and pw's into the camera.

Ok, that is what I would expect, but you don't need to login with that account on the computer login screen to accomplish that.

You don't need to do anything on the PC other than create the account, is all I am trying to say

And that's one of the blasted problems...I can't get the computer to accept a user account. I get the new account's name and icon, but when I go to log to the new account, I get the error message that the account's profile can't be found. I need a new user account because the camera won't hook into my admin account (because I think it is two words and the camera's keyboard doesn't allow for two worded user names) or the guest account (don't know why can't get into the guest account).
