Hi,

I have a laptop running Windows XP - Tablet Edition that won't connect to a Linksys class B router. However the laptop does connect to class G and N routers without a problem. I've searched the web and don't see any information that states that XP Tablet Edition won't work with class B routers. Does anyone know of a place that where I can find this information before I invest in a new router?

Thanks.

In fact Class B is slower then Class g (11 Mbps) and if it ca connect Class G it should connect Class B due to backwards compatibility.

Will you check your tablet pc network adapter settings and be sure taht it was not set to accept 801.11g only mode ?

If not check if you class B router has MAC based access filter in place or not.

astly may be the authentication settings would prevent it to connect in that some older dirvers may not support wpa/wpa2 or WEP with  longer than 64 bits keys.
