2.4GHz Wireless Lan And 5 GHz Wireless LAN


this is usually caused by your router and your wireless network card are not compatible... you need to purchase as well cisco wireless network card adn tehn when you press your wireless security on the router, it will automatically apply all security protocol to the connection.

if you do not want to purchase new card, you always can setup these devices manually,

connect to the router via rj45 cable, establish what protocol, security and transmission method/frequency you will be using, write that down, disconnect the cable, enter your wireless network card settings and apply same settings to your network card, this should solve the problem.

as you did not stated what operating system you are using and what card is in your computer, this is unfortunately best advice which can be given.

how to set up your router, you have downloadable pdf file on linksys site.

No power


The light on the adapter indicates if there is network activity.

Check in device manager if the adapter is properly installed. Right click my computer, then select properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device manager.

If there is a yellow exclamation point on the USB adapter then you may need to reinstall the Linksys adapter.

If the Linksys adapter is installed properly, then check the wireless network connections if it is connected.

To ensure that you are connected to your wireless network, you will need to know the settings on your wireless router or access-point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and the wireless security and network key.

If you are using the Linksys Wireless Utility, go to Site survey, select your SSID then click connect. Type the network key if wireless security is enabled.

If you are using the default wireless connection on your computer, just right click the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (lower right conner of your screen, near the clock), then select view available wireless networks. Select your SSID, then click connect and type the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

Hope this helps! Good luck!

My Dell lattitude D830 won't connect with linksys


Right-click the wireless icon with red X and click on View Available wireless networks. Highlight the name of your wireless network and click Connect. If it asks you for the network key, type in the secuirty key of the router and press connect. That should do it. If you don't know the wireless security key of the router, you can see it by accessing the router's Setup Page through http://192.168.1.1 on your browser. It's under wireless tab then wireless security sub tab

Secure network connection


Standard WPA security will work just fine. You can configure your wireless setup via the web interface for the router. Here's a link to the Linksys website, where there is step-by-step documentation on how to do this. Basically, you just set up a key (a password) in the router, and any system trying to connect via wi-fi has to have that key to get in. It is highly unlikely anyone can hack this, if you use a resonably sized key (8 characters, minimum).

Don't be afraid - wi-fi setup is very simple, and should only take you about 5 minutes. To open the web interface to the router, type "192.168.1.1" into the address bar. Leave the user name blank, and type "admin" for the password. You can (and should) change those later. The user guide has a very clear and concise checklist to follow for setting up wireless security. Follow it, and you will be fine.

Here's that link:
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?childpagename=US%2FLayout&packedargs=page%3D2%26cid%3D1115416835852%26c%3DL_Content_C1&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&SubmittedElement=Linksys%2FFormSubmit%2FProductDownloadSearch&portaltype=null&sp_prodsku=1175241407708

If that link doesn't work (long ones can be a problem), then just go to Linksys.com, select the download section, and put in your router model number.

Cheers

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.
