    Helping a friend connect a Windows XP Media Center 2002 PC with an Apple
    AirPort Extreme Base Station that's on the other end of his house. The PC
    is upstairs, the Station is downstairs. It was supposedly working fine for
    a while but has been intermittent. The PC has a DLink USB adapter on a cord
    positioned up on the desk and has a good path through the door and out into
    an open area, though it is a ways to the station. I've turned off the
    Norton firewall, but still get limited connectivity warnings and though the
    station is set to WEP ASCII 13 character encryption, the PC wants to read
    it WPA/PSK and will revert to that by itself after I enter the key. A
    windows laptop that connects fine has WPA/PSK (I think that's what it says)
    showing in the encrpytion type. I think there are some updates the Media
    Center Edition doesn't have that may affect the USB performance possibly??
    I saw a warning when I was reinstalling about KB822603. Any suggestions
    welcome.
