Can connect with usb stick on one PC and through inbuilt wireless on a laptop to the main router but not a new one

Hi there

I'm having problems in getting the usb wireless adapter to work on a new pc I've just built.

I can use the usb stick to connect to the router with no problems on the old pc but it's not working on the new one. I can also connect to the router using my laptop.

OS of the old pc is Windows XP Home, laptop is Vista and the new one which can't connect is XP Pro SP3.

I've also tried connecting the new pc to the router directly via an ethernet cable, but no luck still.

It keeps giving the "limited connection" message. When I click repair connection it attempts to repair but stops when it's "renewing the ip address"

I've looked in the user manual on the disc and nothing seems helpful :-s

I've used the netgear connection program/utility selecting the right wireless connection, using both 64 and 128bit encryption for the wireless key. I've also tried bypassing the netgear program altogether and just connecting through windows wireless manager but the same problem occurs.

Any ideas on what is wrong?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

Can eee asus 1008HA laptops use a prepaid 'stick' for internet connection?


The USB wireless stick uses the cell phone network for wireless Internet connection provided it is within that ISP cell phone coverage area.
I doubt you can use a 2nd hand USB wireless stick unless the service is transferred to you. It is best you organise your own Internet connection with a ISP of your choice.
Laptop battery are removable and can be replaced when they are worn out, BUT the BIOS battery is inside the laptop and this can be changes but requires getting access to the insides of the laptop.

Open Zonealarm, choose Firewall, Zones.

Add >> IP Range set your IP range eg 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254

This should allow connection between Router and Wireless Laptop/Desktop.

If your wireless PC cannot see the router, check your router setting to see if you are transmitting a SSID

Cant connect wireless


If the stick is the solution, why are you avoiding the solution?

From what you have said, the internal wifi in the Evo doesn't work, while
an external usb stick does.

Assuming that your internal wifi is properly configured and functional, it is
incapable of picking up your home wifi signal, though it might be functional in other situations ... Buying an external usb stick gives you a better antenna position and takes nothing away from your system, while adding functionality and sheilding the innards of your system from viral
attack as a first line of attack that is detachable.

Buy the USB stick.

Wireless program..


Hi!

Yepp, you can use your Toshiba 1405 with a wireless router. What you need is an wireless USB-stick to connect to the router. And you need drivers to that stick, but they follow with the stick when you buy one. You dont need any other programs, the settings you do in XP network.
You will find wirelessUSB-sticks and wireless router (sometimes a sticks follows with the router) in any internet shop or in any pc-shop near you.

Here is an example, its a D-link wireless router and a wireless usb-stick

You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.

Wireles conection problem


I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!
