So I arrived at a friend's place and she still had some work to do so I decided to boot up my laptop and connect to the internet while waiting for her to finish. I searched for wireless connections, found hers: "Jessica", and tried to connect. Instead of the usual screen asking me to type in Jessica's wireless password, I was brought to a screen that said "Type the PIN from the Linksys Router to configure it." Thought it was odd, but just looked at the eight-digit PIN on the bottom of the router, typed it in, and hit next. Before I knew it I was connected to the Internet. And the two computers she was using for work were kicked off it. Her automatic connection to her home wireless network was not recognizing her password or allowing her to connect at all.
WTF did I do here? I must have reconfigured it somehow, and after messing around trying to fix it, I can't even get onto the network myself (currently stealing wi-fi from a neighbor.) Any bright ideas on how to fix this for her?
It's a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, Model No. WRT54G2 V1.
