Wireless connection unavailable *solved* Ram question still

I just recently purchased 4 more gigs of ram for my computer and installed them today after which my computer started to freeze up and lose my internet connection. I don't think that could have anything to do with my problem, but I figured I would list everything I did to my computer before this happened.

Once my computer was started up I could not access the internet, and when I tried to fiddle around with my connection my start button would freeze and I coudlnt open anything but I could still move around my mouse.

I then took my new ram out and started up my computer again. Still no internet connection but it stopped freezing when I tried to open things. I tried to repair my connection but the option to repair was grey and I couldn't click it.

I tried reseting my router with no luck. My mothers computer still has its connection with no problems at all. I'm not sure what information is needed to know my problem, but I have windows xp operating system and I connect to the internet via my linksys wireless g usb network adapter. My mother has an Actiontec wireless broadband router.

Edit: Sorry everyone I just went back to mess around with it and I got connected to the internet. For some reason when I tried earlier I couldnt click or find any wireless connections but it just now let me and I was able to find my own and enter in my WEP code to connect.

I do still have a problem that I need help with. The new ram I purchased i'm hoping isnt going to be a problem but now i'm not so sure it is compatable. I have currently 4 gigs of kingston hyperx KHX8500D2K2/4GETR, and the new ram I just purchased is Kingston hyperx KHX8500D2K2/4G. I dont want to try and install it again and have anything funny happen.

    Sometimes RAM mismatches just cause all kinds of wierd problems. As a test, I'd put in JUST the 4G of the new stuff and see if it'll work properly off that. If it does then thats whats throwing it off - switching between the different RAM sticks is making your motherboard shit the bed.
