Question about Linksys (WIFIDESKTOP) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Cannot connect anymore

I can't seem to connect my laptop to wireless anymore. It just quit one day. It seems as if all the drivers are working correctly but it doesn't connect. I have a linksys router and my computer runs intel pro/wireless 2200bg wireless connection as the driver. Has been fine for a couple of years and now just won't connect to anything. It says that the driver is working fine but some it up because it never connects.

Does the router work with the wired port connection? It's entirely possible that the router just went belly-up on you ...Linksys is an awesome brand, but sometimes it happens.

If the wired part works, the wireless transmitter inside may have gone bad. Best to just get a new one for about $50 ...but keep the old one in case you need a wired connection somewhere else around the house :)

Problem staying connected to internet


If you are connected via Ethernet cable, it works fine? Are all the computers wireless? Does the laptop change when moved? If you place it next to another Computer on wireless is the signal the same? Is this a issue that changes every day you boot the machine? Are the other machines static? Have you done all the Acer and windows updates? Has the laptop always been this way? Way to many variables, It's not a simple question to answer. That said, maybe a bad antenna in the laptop.

How to fix a trackpad that quit working as well as any external mouse


Have you considered doing a "System Restore"? You could just restore back just previous to the date when the mal-function began. I bet that would fix it, and you don't loose most personal stuff.

Problems making wireless connection using Intel ProSet Wireless. It doesn't seem to recognize me anymore. When I try to connect I get a popup for General Settings with Profile Name and Wireless Network...


  1. uninstall everything,delete all previous settings files. clean the regestry with a reg cleaner or manually then restart.

         Then try installing it and create new settings. Just before you clean everything, 
         I suggest you take notes of all the values of all the fields so that you can re- create.
          2. get the latest drivers, if you can.


If you still have trouble, go to the vendor.

Help!


i would go out to Toshiba's web site and download new drivers for it. then i would go into device manager and uninstall the driver for it. after that is done then you install the new driver for the wireless card and hope that it works. it that doesn't than you might have a hardware malfunction or software conflict.

Can not connect


It is possible that your windows update messed up the Linksys drivers. If your pc is xp, download the latest drivers from www.linksys.com/download. uninstall the wpc54g on the add/remove programs.

if using XP, reinstall drivers only, no need to install the linksys software. This would be best if you install the drivers manually. After this you will be using only the WINDOWS UTILITY for your wireless connection.

Wireless connection keeps falling


It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.
