Linksys adapter won't properly connect

Hey. My sister has recently moved her files and settings to a new computer. I've tried and failed to get the wireless adapter to connect to the network. The software is properly installed, and it sees and tries to connect to the network, but the message I get from the Windows XP wireless networks list is "Limited or No Connectivity". I've tried all of the USB ports, and I know what the WEP key is, but it doesn't get a working connection. The majority of the things she does on the computer involve the Internet, so please answer soon.

Usually the limited or no connectivity is displayed under the following circumstances:

  1. The router and wireless adapter are too far apart.
  2. The network key (ex. wep, wpa, etc) your inputting on the computer is incorrect.
  3. The computer is obtaining the wrong IP address.
Judging by the fact that you already have had a computer connecting to the wireless network , I would assume your problem is going to be related to number 3. To make sure, I would first make sure that the wireless router is giving off a higher signal strength then 1-2 bars in the wireless network box in XP.

To confirm that it is correctly receiving an IP address I would change the connection to DHCP, which means the router assigns an IP address to the computer automaticlly. Here aree the instructions to do so....
  • Double click on the icon for the wireless network on the bottom right corner
  • When the box opens , click "Properties"
  • On the next box , double click on the line that says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
  • Next click on the radio button that says "Obtain an IP address automaticlly (DHCP)"
  • Then click on the radio button that says "Obtain DNS server address automaticlly"
  • Now try connecting to the wireless network, that shoud fix you up.
Also if that does not work , you can try this YouTube video which is great refrence for fixing a connection. Best of luck!

Adapter inactive


It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.

I have a wireless-g router linksys with an older firmware dated in 2006 and i just recently bought a linksys wireless adapter for our new desktop pc that has windows 7 installed. i went through most steps...


The operating system on your computer is Windows 7 and the adapter is WUSB54GC. You are getting the Error 211 that means the drivers are not installed properly.
Though you have the CD of the adapter, you will need to download the drivers for the adapter from the web site.
Go to www.linksys.com/download , enter the model number of the adapter. select the proper version of the adapter. download the drivers for windows 7.
Now try to install the downloaded drivers. It will work.

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

Linksys Wireless Adapter can't access internet


I have same problem with WRT54GS router and WPC54G Notebook Adapter. These worked fine until recently...I suspect something to do with installing XP updates and needing new drivers. I tried everything suggested...even updated LELA to newest version, but no success. After hours of frustration, I was ready to chuck it and head to Best Buy to get something different. But I tried one last solution suggested somewhere and it worked for me. Here it is in a nutshell: Uninstall LELA on all computers...sure it's got nice graphics and features, but who cares if it doesn't work!!! Then plug adapter into notebook and let it find the new hardware on it's own. (Linksys is very adamant about running their CD first, but don't do it! You can run the hardware with Windows just fine without LELA.) When the hardware install wizard asks, then put in the Linksys CD so it can download the drivers only. Then set up the wireless network in your network connections and change any necessary router settings directly by accessing it via 192.168.1.1. Yes, I would love to have LELA up and functioning and feel like I have somewhat given up, but when software creates more problems than solutions, I've gotta cut bait. My network now works great. I put a Network Connections shortcut on my desktop to monitor things myself. It's simple and life is good. From these forums, it is obvious that LELA has some real issues. Too bad Linksys hasn't provided a better software product, considering the huge amount of time and money their customers have invested in trying to get it to work!!

USB adapter


You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".

You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.

If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.

If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.
