I don't know if anyone knows how to fix this, but recently I had to reinstall my copy of windows. After installing the driver for my sound card, suddenly my taskbar disappeared. It seems it is still down there (tweaking the settings sometimes shows a HINT of it that I can right click on), but nothing I do will make it come back to normal.
So what about the software that came with the router and wireless card, like I mentioned? That seems to me to be the best place for an answer. And it is widely known that WEP can be hacked inside of one minute.
