    Ok, So I had a problem with my computer so I had to reinstall windows. I couldnt find my pro cd so I used my Home cd. Well, I cant find the cd key for it so I wasnt able to update to service pack 2.
    Now I got a linksys wireless G adapter that has always worked good. I am using it right now to post this. But the problem is, while downloading files or checking myspace, etc, it just stops out of the blue. I have to unplug it and plug it back in again for it to work. Is there any fix for this other then service pack 2? I have the latest drivers for my modem and my other computer works fine. My other computer doesent have service pack 2 and it has the same adapter. It seems like it just stops downloading but not uploading. If theres anything else I can post let me know. My modem sends a signal wirelessly to both of my computers. thanks for the help!!

    Doubtful SP2 will fix the problem. There is no pre-requisit for SP2 unless you are adding WPA2 support.

    There is freeware called SW, which will give you the Windows Product Key if it has been entered. It is avaialbe from PCWorld. You did not enter the product key and I do not know if the utility will work.. You only have a limited number of days to activiate windows. Again as Esquire stated I do not know if anything in SP2 that fixes your problem. You and go to the Microsoft website, which lists the fixes in SP2 in the knowledgebase.

    well thanks but I get the same key no matter what computer im on. And when I try to type in the key it says it has already been used the maximum amount of times and it says I need to enter a new key. :/

    Well its one of two things, SP2 or windows runs limited functionality until it is registered.

    I believe the tool you are referring is called SIW, System Information for Windows: http://www.gtopala.com/
    correct? :biggrin:
