First, make sure you know the SSID (name of your wireless network) and Network key (if your wireless router is secured). Also, make sure that the SSID broadcast of your laptop is enabled (this is an option in the router if they will broadcast the signal or not).

I assume that your laptop came with a built in Broadcom adapter. Depending on the brand of your laptop, there is always a wireless switch. You need to look for the wireless switch and turn it ON. For most laptops it's a sliding switch on either the side or front of the laptop. For some it's a combination key - like pressing FN + F2 at the same time.

For XP laptops, you can use the XP wireless utility located on the lower right side of your screen like this :

For some reason the XP utility cannot detect any signal and it's telling you that "Windows cannot configure this.. if you enable another utility, use that software to connect", that only means that there is another software in the computer that is running the wireless connection. You can go to Start > All Programs and look for that utility - you can start by searching a program like broadcom.

For Vista , look for this icon to connect:


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Hi, I just replaced my old Dlink router with the N150 and I set it up following instructions on the enclosed cd. I can connect to the internet without any problem but our laptops and phones can't seem...

It's possible that you're just not broadcasting your SSID. Try going into the settings for your router by plugging directly into it with a laptop and visiting (usually, might be different for your router). Put in the username/password (should be written on the pamphlet or be on the CD somewhere) and check your wireless settings to make sure that "Broadcast SSID" is checked. Also be sure that you've given it a unique name, and password protection is always recommended.

Wireless not working

If you can detect the wireless network but you cannot connect to it, check the following:

1. Be sure that you are typing the correct network key (WEP, WPA-PSK).
2. If the wireless is unsecured, but still you can't connect to it, try to change the wireless channel.
3. Try to power cycle the router (disconnect the power cord from the wall socket for 5 minutes, then plug it back in).
4. Reboot the computer and try to turn off / on the WiFi of your laptop.
5. Reconfigure the router's wireless settings.
6. If same problem occur, contact the manufacturer and have them upgrade the firmware of your router.

If you cannot detect the wireless network, try the following:

1. Power cycle the router for 5 minutes.
2. Reboot the computer and try to turn off / on the WiFi of your laptop.
3. Change the angle of the router's antenna.
4. Change the wireless channel.
5. Reconfigure the router's wireless settings.
6. Upgrade the firmware of your router.

If nothing happens, then the router could be defective. Contact the manufacturer for RMA.

Good luck!

Lost wireless signal

Check the WLAN light on the Linksys Router if it's still on and make sure that the Wireless Adapter is ON on your HP computer and can detect other wireless networks, if WLAN is off try to do a power cycle and check again the lights... If lights are ok... connect your PC to the LAN port of the router and access the admin page, try changing channels and see if your wireless computer can detect it, if still not try to do a hard reset on the router

Wireless connection problem

Hello There, are there any wireless computers that detects your router? If there is, most of the laptop computers has a built-in on/off (toggle) switch on the side to enable or disable the wireless card on your computer. Make sure it is "ON" then check if it will detect the wireless connection.

If it is a desktop, try to reboot the computer then check again. If none of the computers can detect your router, make sure that the wireless light on the router is lit up. You may also try changing the channel on the router.

Laptop could not detect linksys on second day


Couple of things you can try here:

1) Connect your laptop (or another computer if possible) to the router using a network cable. You should then be able to see your configuration info. Make sure that the computer you are using to connect (wired) to the router is set up to use DHCP. Once in there, depending on what you find, you might be able to fix it yourself.

2) Factory reset the router and go through the setup options as if it were brand new.

Hope this helps.
