    Forgive me if this is a duplicate post. I have looked around for a few hours and have yet to find anything dealing with this issue. I thought I had read a thread a couple of weeks ago dealing with the password/key not being accepted by windows 7 but cannot find it anywhere.

    Anyway. I have my network setup as follows:

    Vista PC connected to a Belkin N+ router and a dual booting XP/Windows 7 PC connecting via Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter. Works fine on XP but Windows 7 will not connect because it thinks my passkey is invalid,wrong, etc. My wireless security is WPA 2 personal. I can connect without security turned on but would rather not. If anyone can direct me to the thread dealing with this or has a possible explanation and or fix then please, please let me know. Thanks so much for your time. Oh yes. I switched the wireless security to WEP and everything worked for a bit but then my connection started to drop alot so switched back and then back again to WEP with no luck. thanks!
