USB Adapter to Wireless Router - can't connect after reinstallment

I have two computers at home. I set up a wireless router for my first one that is directly connected to the phone line so I can avoid the hassle of having to install extension cables to my other pc (one is in the den while the other is in a bedroom).

I have a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless-G router and a DWA-110 Wireless-G USB adapter.

I configured a WPA encryption for my wireless network.

Anyway, the network was fine and perfectly functioning until a while back, when system32 files were accidentally deleted from the bedroom pc by one of its users, and it had to be reformatted and all drivers reinstalled.

Once that was done, I tried adding the bedroom pc back into my wireless network. This time around, even though I followed the same steps I took the first time, and the device manager and the D-Link utility itself was telling me everything was working, whenever I activated the wireless connection for the bedroom PC, it tries to connect but gets stuck at 'Acquiring Network Address', and later has to disconnect and try again.

So far, I have tried reinstalling the USB adapter, and removing the bedroom pc from then reconnecting it back into the wireless network.

Is there anything I missed about reinstallment of the adapter? Is this a software or hardware problem? How can I best solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

    "...it tries to connect but gets stuck at 'Acquiring Network Address', and later has to disconnect and try again."

    I forgot to add that so far, it hasn't been able to connect at all, and always gets stuck at where I said it does...

SOURCE: XTV2.0 software says "Please install the XTV2.0 Hardware Device"

Same here -- third time was charm on my notebook running Win XP MCE. Strangely, I followed the same instructions (to the "T") each time, so I don't know what made the third install work. What I found is "key" is that "XTV2.0" shows up under "Imaging devices" in Device Manager (My Computer -> System Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager). I attempted installing on a couple other Windows XP machines, and so far no dice. I'll investigate further to see if I can determine the root cause and a solution. Surely more people have encountered this problem?! The XTV2.0 is the same adapter that's branded under other names -- mine is StarTech.com USB2TVTUNER, which I bought from Dell.

Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?

Setup Guide


If it does we can probably search for more information.

Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?
Did you enable MAC address checking on your router?

1. Unplug the USB2TVTUNER from the PC
2. Uninstall the following from Add/Remove Programs
a) USB Video/Audio Device Driver
b) Windows Media Tools 4.0
c) XTV2.0
Extract the file downloaded to your Desktop, make sure you remove any cds from your drive.
3. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged)
4. Install USB2TVTUNER\Windows.32bit\AP Software\setup.exe from the folder you downloaded. This will install three separate programs, please install all of them.
5. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged)
6. Install USB2TVTUNER\Windows.32bit\Driver\Setup.exe from the folder you downloaded.
7. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged)
8. After the computer is 100% loaded into Windows, plug the USB2TVTUNER in. It should self install itself.

SOURCE: Laptop cannot connect to router with WPA-PSK security

What I believe here is you are not typing in the pass-phrase(wireless password) correctly.

Go to 192.168.1.1 log on to the router ,in wireless section you will find the pass phrase,, create a new one and then try to connect.

It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.

Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.

I have connected my Belkin wireless adapter to my laptop computer and where can I get the Network key?


The network key will be dependent on the settings of the router providing you with the wireless signal, not the adapter receiving it.

Hi,

You have mentioned that you have a modem connected to one computer already, if you want to access another computer from a different computer through a wireless adapter then you need a wireless router or access point to transmit the wireless signal, because the Belkin N150 Wireless USB adapter which you have bought is just a "receiver".

If you have router already connected to your modem then please give the brand name of the router you have

Thanks & Regards,

My wireless adapter for my desktop keeps connecting for awhile and the disconnect from my wireless router /modem. The router is less than 100 feet from the computer ....do i need a new usb wireless adapter...


Is there any other wireless computer in the network ?
Right now the connection is dropping on your computer . It might be the problem with the wireless adapter of the computer or the wireless router .
You will need to isolate the problem.

If you have any other wireless computer in the network and that computer is also facing the same problem then it must be the router problem. You can check the settings of the router . for this you will need to access the router set up.

If you have other wireless computer in the network and that is working properly then it must be adapter issue. Try to uninstall or reinstall the adapter or Update drivers.

If you do not have any other wireless computer then try any laptop in this wireless network just to isolate the problem.

Hi there, sounds like you need to sync your modem and router. First turn off the power to the modem, then to the router. After a few minutes reinstall the power to the Modem then to the Router. Restart your computer and see if you now can connect. Good Luck...

Cannot Communicate from Computer to Computer


A connection from USB adapter directly to USB adapter may or may not be possible. Borrow a wireless router from someone and use it to test supporting connections to your two computers. I think you will find this a much easier way to proceed. Routers can be had for $40 or less. Shop around.

Good Luck

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?


4 steps to set up your home wireless network
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
