Set the SSID on at the router side. Alternately you can enter the SSID information manually at the computer side.

Linksys Wireless NIC PCMCIA card


From what you described, and it sounds like you were thorough and know what you are doing, I would try another card in your laptop. If it is enabled and there is no green light then the USB port(or card slot) has failed or the unit is bad. The LED will be on regardless of detectable networks. I hope it is under warranty or you can find another cheaply. I think you have done the best job anyone could do to troubleshoot the system. Again, my best advice is to try another known working card. This is the final step of your root cause analysis. I am sure you already know this so please don't give me a bad rating.

I can not connect to the internet but it still has strong signal strength. It will only connect to the internet when I am right next to the router. Why is this happening and what should I do?


One thing to keep in mind is that there are several different router/adapter models, types, and signal strengths. If your house/apartment is older, it may have poor wire insulation. This would create large electromagnetic interference for your wireless signal. This can also happen with large appliances such as a refridgerator or generator. Wireless also has diminished returns when passing through concrete or walls made with thick/heavy material.

You may try moving the router to a different, more central portion of your residence to see if the signal improves in all areas. Try to determine which direction, from the router, it tends to have the lowest signal strength and determine what may be causing the loss of signal strength.

Aside from that, if possible test with a different router/wireless adapter. You can accomplish this by having a friend visit you with their laptop or visiting a friend's wireless network and seeing if you have the same problem. The later of that advice applies to wireless hot spots like Starbucks or McDonalds/Dairy Queen.

XBOX 360 Wireless Adapter Question


When i try to play halo3 with my friends i get the same problem. I cant connect to them and sometimes i also cant hear some people talk. Some problems might be that your NAT is set to STRICT or MODERATE you will want it to be open to play with your friends. I dont really have an answer but you will need to get in your apartments router to change the settings to get the NAT to become open. If you type in on the google search bar: Cant connect to friends on xbox live there will be some answers for this problem.
