Just last night I setup my Wireless N Network and have 2 PC's with Wireless-B WMP11 PCI Adapters. One PC is an Emachine and the other is an HP. My emachine works just fine, the Wireless Card found the new network and connected without problems. The HP however, sees the network, but the moment I click "Connect", the PC Reboots.
The PC is perfectly fine for doing anything that does not require to get online, and the Card was working literally minutes before I removed my old Router and setup the new Network...so I know the Card still works, to an extent. I've never encountered this situation before so I'm at a loss as to how to fix it without going out and getting a new Card...that is, if it's not the PC that holds the problem.
Has anyone come across something like this at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did that, I even swapped out my Working Card from my Emachine and it did the same thing. The Card I pulled out from the HP worked inside my Emachine, so it wasn't the Card....directly.
I appreciate your response and I apologize for not Posting here when I fixed it. I can't really say what exactly the cause was, but after a lot of cursing and moving the 2 Cards around, I got it working. Ultimately it ended with a fresh hardware install...for like the 5th time of me putting the Card back into the HP. I went onto my Emachine since it was connected, downloaded the Drivers onto my Flashdrive from the Linksys Product Page. Updated the Drivers on the HP from that flashdrive and then it worked. However, the very same Drivers that are now installed, was the same Driver version that existed during the connection issue....which are the same that are on my Emachine which never faultered.
While this still confuses me a little, I'm glad it's no longer an issue. Thanks again for your response.
