Question about SMC EZ Connect g SMC2862W-G 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Software malfunction For a year, this software worked fine. Now, alghough the SMC software detects my wireless network, it can't figure out a way to connect. Also, often the SMC adapter software will open for a split second and then disappear. Very frustrating, I've spent a good two hours with SMC support people trying to trouble shoot this, and they suggested it might be something with my wireless router, but just the other day, a friend was able to connect to the internet in my place with no problem... so it seems there some bug in the SMC software... Thanks for your help.

I also have similar problem. It would occasionally disconnect randomly showing 'limited connection' or 'malfunction usb detection' message. After that happened, I'm offline until I restart the computer. Heck, my pc froze some time when I try to mess with it in device manager, and the instant I pull the smc usb out, my pc resumes normally. It also gave me a blue screen (code bf) at one time. I'm using window vista by the way, so that might be the problem

I assume they told you to uninstall the software, remove the adapter, then re install driver an re insert adapter, as this normally cures the driver fault. If they didn't try that, if the problem persists the adapter may be faulty although i think it's a software problem. Try not to use Windows to repair connection as it never works and resets your pc's ip address differently than your routers already given it.

Try going into the control panel and then into the device manager. Find the ethernet device and remove it. Then re-boot the computer and the OS should re-detect the card and re-install the drivers. Hopefully this will get the card working again. Let me know if this helps.

Cant connect my SMC to other home computer and have a netgear router, how do i connect my smc adapter


Most hardware like an Network Adaptor you install the software CD 1st. Then plug in the hardware.

Then if you configured wireless (wifi, 802.11) settings on your SMC - you should fine the network NAME when you try to connect. You will be asked for the security key for WEP or WPA or WPA2 that you used in the SMC.

SMC should... then assign IP Settings automatically. If the SMC has Internet, you should have Internet.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?
