Ran Network Setup Wizard on my HP Pavilion a1340n and picked a new name for my network. Then I tried to connect via a wireless adapter on my Dell Optiplex GX260 but when I clicked the network icon in the system tray which shows the available networks within range, I only see a linksys_WPS_7995 network which is not the name I gave my network during setup. At this point I tried to connect to that available network with the network key that was generated during network setup but the program (Wireless Network Connection 2) would not connect (the program states that it's waiting for the network to be ready but then it stops waiting and stops trying to connect).
What am I doing wrong? I intially didn't need to setup anything and only used Network Setup Wizard because another computer was unable to connect. Now I have two computers that won't connect (that intial one has the belkin wireless adapter and this second computer has a linksys adapter).
