    I have a DMA2100 Linksys Media Extender that I had working with my Windows
    Vista Ultimate PC at one time. I am now experiencing the same issue I had
    previously with a connection failure. Both the DMA2100 and the Windows Vista
    PC are using a wired ethernet connection. Does anyone have the magic answer
    as to why I continue to have connection issues? I believe the initial problem
    was actually related to sharing or security issues with the media folders I
    was attemping to access but for the life of me I don't know what has changed
    or if this is the actual problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    what error messages?
    have you rebooted your router? have you installed any updates to any
    software? have you tried a system restore to a time before the issue
    started?

    Hi Barb,

    I have tried rebooting the Router as well as the DMA2100 Media extender.
    There was a firmware update applied to the Media extender and I believe some
    automatic Windows Updates were applied. I don't have a backup to enable me to
    do a restore.
