So my father accidentally reset our Linksys wireless router. We are able to get online through the PC, can see the network on our laptops and smart phones, but can't connect to it. When we try, we keep getting an error message asking us for the network password. I have set the password on the router, so I know the one we are entering on our laptops is correct. Any suggestions on what to try next would be greatly appreciated!

:welcome:

Open the device manager and then scroll down to your network adapters and then left click them and then right click and unisntall the wireless drivers for each of the laptops and then reboot your machine you will then be asked for the new router password input it and you should be able to connect now.

Here is a link on how to open device manager.

If you reboot after you un install the driver windows will auto re install and the driver will have a clean slate so to speak.
