My first suggestion would be to get rid of the 2Wire adapter. The other part is not quite so simple though. First question, Do you have WEP enabled on the router?

    To follow up on the previous question I asked about WEP - in order for a key to be generated you have to go to your router's wireless security setup page and 1. Choose a default transmit key (1 - 4) - 2. Choose your WEP encryption type (64 bits 10 hex digits or 128 bits 26 hex digits) - 3. Choose a pass phrase (almost any word that you can think of and remember) and 4. Hit the "Generate Button". -- This will produce a number in each of the four listed keys (1 - 4). The number in the key corresponding to the default transmit key you chose in step one will be your encryption key. That is the encryption key that you will need to complete the installation. If you had a Linksys wireless card installed on your computer you should be able to simply enter the pass phrase that you used in Step 3 above. Without a Linksys wireless card installed on the computer in question you will more than likely have to enter the actual number (exactly as it appears) in the default key (1 - 4) that you chose in Step 1 above. -------- This should allow you to connect to the computer to the router. On a side note, the 2Wire adapter can sometimes be a pain to work with and, more than likely, you will have to use the number rather than the pass phrase itself. If you have followed all of these steps and the unit still will not connect you will probably be better off switching to a Linksys adapter, which should make the installation easier. If you have followed all of the above steps and the router has not generated an encryption key as described you may have a defective router - in which case you will need to return it to the place that you purchased it - or contact Linksys for Tech Support.

Do you have encryption enabled on your wireless router? There is a strong possibility that you have entered the wrong encryption key (network key) while connecting to the wireless network.

Trying to use belkin router with linksys adapter cards..do i need new drivers


You need to configure the Belkin router with a SSID and WAP or WEP encryption, Then install the Linksys adapter driver in the computer and then configure the Linksys adapter with the Belkin router settings (ie. the SSID and encryption) before the Linksys can communicate eith the Belkin router.

Encryptiing


Is your router from linksys also? How many wireless computers do you have? Note that if you encrypt your router, you need to make sure that each wireless computer gets the exact encryption keys you will use on the router. Usually the linksys router page can be accessed via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is "admin". Go to Wireless >> Wireless Security. Select WEP-128 key. Enter in a passphrase and hit generate. Copy key #1 on a piece of paper (make sure it's 26 characters) and click apply. Next, go to each wireless computer and use encryption key#1 when you connect to the linksys router.

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet


hi!
sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?
