    Are other computers able to connect wireless to the router?
    Are you broadcasting your SSID?

    Are you using any type of wireless security, WEP, or WPA?

My N95 connects to linksys with no problem...But my Nokia e90 gives error "Unable yo connect.WLAN not found."


Hi wasiullahkha,

I see that you connect your Mobile phones to your Router, but you ge an error using your Nokia e90.

> try to check the wireless setting for the Router.

>this is possible that the Router is set to provide wireless only to deivces that are registered on the Linksys settings MAC address.

>try and check the setting in the Linksys Router possibly MAC Address Filtering check if it is enabled if it is then that will be the cause, you will just need to get the MAC Address of your E90 phone and register in the Router settings for the wireless to work and be detected by the phone.

Or check to see if he router is set to be discoverable or not by other devices , if it is not set to be discovered or the SSID is hidden then you cn manually input that info on your Mobile phone.

these are the only options in a Router that can cause devices not to detect the router signal right away.

I hope that his helps.

Have a nice day,

Every time i secure the router the wpa/wep isnt compatible with my daughters laptop.....not too sure what do


Does your daughter have a very old laptop? Some older wireless cards do not support wpa/wep. You can still get her a USB wireless adapter and use that to connect to the router.

Hi; We have guests that want to access our home wireless network. When trying to connect to our network........... they see a list of available network and when they select our network it does not ask...


Have you go MAC address filtering enabled, if so you will need to add the MAC address to your wireless router's MAC address table.
It is very difficult to diagnose the problem without knowing your wireless router's configuration and the wireless card configuration in your friend's computer.
The easiest way to give them access is to use a LAN cable, provided you have spare LAN ports on your wireless router.

2wire 2700HGV cannot detect wireless Linksys IP camera WVC54GC


Purchase a different router and return the 2wire to the ISP explaining it is not compatible with your equipment at home. You may need to provide them with the new router's MAC address.
