I'm unable to download E Books when I shop by using my nook. I switched my home network router from wired to wireless with a Linksys E2000. I can browse books but when I buy one the nook fails to download them. The nook will finish the download at a Barnes & Noble store or on a router in a different home but not mine. My router works OK on wireless laptops and a wireless printer. Any ideas?

The E2000 is an N router; Nook owners in the past have reported compatibility problems with N routers.
If you can set your router to support a mixed environment -- B, G and N -- that may solve your problem.

I changed network mode to BG-Mixed and Wireless Security to WPA2/WPA Mixed mode. It didn't fix the problem.
FWIW: Make sure the encryption type is AES, not TKIP.

A lot of people have issues with routers set to WPA/WPA2. Try setting it to WPA2 (AES) only.

I agree with Nallia.
Also, unless you have a B device (unlikely in this day and age) lock it to G mode only.
WPA2, and make sure the passphrase set in the router (and the nook) is at least 13 characters.
Some routers will let you set less than this, but the standard calls for 13 and behavior is unreliable if less than that.
