Hi,

I just got a network set up, and it has been running fine for the last couple days, but then my mom turned on the router security settings. We have all the computers in the router's safe list, and everything seems to work fine, but since we turned the security on, we have been kicked off twice. The only way to get back on is by reseting both the router and cable modem.

This is a wireless network, with a Linksys router. Both mine, and my mom's laptop are wireless, but our print server is wired. Any thoughts on why we get kicked off like that?

EDIT: It is definately a router problem, it just kicked us off again, and I had to reset the router again. PLEASE HELP!

What "security" settings are you talking about? Did you consider visiting the manufacturer's support site and checking if there's upgraded firmware for the router? What version/patch level of Windows are you running?

we a bit more info on the security settings your talking about. before you do a firmware upgrade, provide more info on security settings.
These are the security settings that are for the Linksys Router to keep other people from accessing our network wirelessly without us adding their MAC address. We have to add the MAC addresses for people to access the network wirelessly. My mom's laptop (wireless) is Win XP Pro SP2, while my laptop (wireless) is Win XP Home SP2. The Print server (wired) is Windows Server 2003 SP1.

I am going to give it a firmware upgrade, because when I went onto the Linksys website, there was firmware released just this year for it.

Anyhow, when it kicks us off the network, it kicks ALL computers off, inclusing the print server, untill I reset it. It is driving my mom crazy, as she has no patience for networks. :(
