Re: linksys wireless g notbook adapter

From my experience with stubborn program removals, I go into regedit and search for all instances of the manufacturer name or related terms. Go to "Start", "run" and type "regedit" to enter the registry. Reboot system after changes are made. Have access to back-up easily available (how you do that is up to you). I delete those registery references. This has happened many times when I have uninstalled programs. That has typically corrected the problem. NOTE: please do this carefully, back-up the registry prior to monkeying with it. If you are not comfortable doing this then you are stuck or will need to take it to someone who knows.

Wireless router

hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .

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

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?

Linksys wireless G-ADSL Home gateway

Sometimes this happens. Installing the Linksys software for your router helps a lot. To reset the router. Unplug the power cord from the wireless & unplug all cables to it. There is a reset button on the back side of the wireless. It is very small. Using a pen press & hold for ten seconds or so. Release & connect your cables & than the power cord. Never hurts to restart the pc or notebook. If you still need help you can check out Linksys home page for wireless G routers.
There is a decent ammount of help, a larning center & driver software.
Please vote....

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network

I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.
