Hey guys, I recently just built myself a new gaming pc and everything is working perfectly except for the wireless. Whenever I attempt to access my wireless network and input the correct network key I get a little window that pops up in the bottom right handed corner which reads "Unable to connect to Wireless Network".
The odd thing is my laptop connects to the wireless just fine and when I hook an Ethernet cable up to my new pc (which is cumbersome to my landlord) I am able to get internet. I also brought my pc over to a friends house and it connected to his wireless without issue. I am stumped and really hope to get this fixed as soon as possible.
My router is a Linksys WRTU54G-TM and I have Kaspersky 2011 Anti Virus running on my computer. Additionally the wireless network adapter for my pc is a Broadcom 802.11n. I will post my ipconfig/all for my pc in a few minutes..

So the wifi that is not working is on a desktop pc but you have a laptop that connects without problems? I'm just putting some basic ideas out there so not sure if they will fix it but on the desktop pc go to your wireless networks and delete the one you are trying to connect to (makes it forget settings). I would also look on the website of your wifi adapter for updated drivers. Then try to reconnect, and also double check your security key. Sorry I'm not more help.
If you are using it for online gaming wifi can be a pain, even with a good connection you can get lag spikes, powerline adapters are a good alternative which allow you to the electrical wiring to transmit data so you wouldn't have to run ethernet cables and you get a big improvement in speed and reliability depending upon the way the house is wired electrically.
Sorry I havent been on lately to respond. Which windows do you have? XP and 7 are slightly different but basically the same idea when configuring, If on win 7 right click your network icon in the taskbar (next to clock) , open network and sharing center, on the left side there is a link "change adapter settings" click that, right click your wireless adapter go to properties.
Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 and hit the properties button this opens the properties window select use the following address for both sections the top should be configured as
ipadress : 192.168.0.100 or any other free address up to 254 this is the one your wired connection picked for you
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
