RE: WEP security key changes itself and I can't change it back
Sorry I should have explained my situation better. It is not the router that
won't hold the settings . It is my wireless connection on my laptop. I have
other computers hooked up wirelessly and they all function properly.
Another thing that has shown itself is that I cannot connect wirelessly
unless I connect the power cable and the LAN to my laptop. AT this point I
can connect to the wireless network and disconnect the LAN cable and power
cable and the Wireless connection will remain active until I shut down. This
is quite bizzare.
