If you have installed the device on an XP sp1 and does not have the PWA patch this will be the error. it will be best to contact your Linksys Tech support at 1-800-326-7114 and they may need to install the adapters wireless utility to get you conencted.

Adaptor won't recognize wpa2 network


As per its user manual (p 2-1)
it only supports WPA, not WPA2

So either reduce the wireless network security to WPA/PSK, or get another adapter that supports WPA2

Or, If it's a version 2 in hardware, you could download the latest driver V2 that added the WPA2 support

Good luck

IT SEEMS LIKE OTHER PEOPLE IS STILLING MY WIRELESS. TELL ME HOW TO BLOCK IT


Use WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. WEP security is not secure at all. Change your SSID to something you recognize. The default is NETGEAR. everyone who buys a router may have this name. MAKE it your own SSID NAME

check in the DHCP client list to see if only your pc's are attached. I am sending a user manual link to get you started.

This is a tutorial for the netgear router in general to make a secure network for wireless.

When I restart my computer (or any instance where my connection is disrupted and then must be restored)... my WUSB54GS adapter has the worst time finding my network, or any of the closest ones for that...


It is totally possible that the wireless adapter is just old and not working as well as before.

You should try updating the drivers for it to see if that clears up any issues with finding networks.
If that doesn't work it may be time to start shopping for a new adapter.

I have Sky Broadband withe netgear router. Bought a netgear wireless adapter to use with my Advent PC. Installed everything. Good connection, but won't connect to internet. Keeps flicking from connected to...


HI,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as sky (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

scan for the wireless network on the computer with the adapter and connect to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Netgear WG111 doesn't see D-Link DIR-655 wireless network


Hi Joe,

I would suggest you to change the wireless channel on the Dlink and use the channel on which WG111 will scan and connect to your network. Also, plese make sure to use the security encryption on the DLINK to WEP or WPA only. Using higher security like WPA2 will cause issues with this adapter.

Anand

Cannot setup WPA2 on WUSB54G & WPC11 adaptors


This is because those wireless adapters that you mentioned do not support for WPA2. Linksys will not release drivers for those adapters that will make it work with WPA2 because they are already discontinued. So the only other option is to stick with WPA or WEP

How to change (or update) wap to wpa encryption on ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter


With this Asus wireless B adapter even the new driver dont support WPA wireless security , because right now sicne WPA is a much newer and higher type of wireless encryption only some wireless B adapter supports that and sorry to say this wireless adapter that you have don't support it even with the latest driver so it will be better to get a new wireless G adapter that supports WPA 100% , you can get the wireless adapter from Asus or from other wireless device manufacturer like Linksys, Netgear. Dlink and Belkin....

Laptop cannot connect to router with WPA-PSK security


What I believe here is you are not typing in the pass-phrase(wireless password) correctly.

Go to 192.168.1.1 log on to the router ,in wireless section you will find the pass phrase,, create a new one and then try to connect.

Can not connect adapter to laptop no installation CD-Rom


you have to install the driver for it to work and i assume that is not the case as you have no cd. Go here to download the driver. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109934&packedargs=sku%3D1134691790190&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0993490190B03 When installed go to the properties of your adapter in network connections, then click on tcp/ip line and then properties and ensure obtain ip address automatically is ticked and press ok. You may also have to use the home network connection wizard if you havent previously to share documents over your network.
