lost my wireless network connection after downloading wi-fi

After receiving email saying I was eligible for verizon wifi- I registered for it on my desktop that was networked wirelessly with a Linksys adapter. Not knowing the only way the wifi works is with a verizon router!

I have a new netgear router. All other wireless connection to my home network still work but the desktop that downloaded the registration (HAHA) and the new vz pc helper whatever. Now my linksys adapter isnt recognized anymore. I even tried it on another pc? Is there something I can do to make my desktop recognize the wireless network adapter again?

I have removed and reinstalled linksys with no luck. PC wont even attempt to find wireless connection?

Ugggggg I hope this didn't fry my adapter!

Hi Blgoodie,

I have only the vaguest idea what's wrong. But a system restore should fix this problem, so try that first.
