Question about Linksys (WMP54GS) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Need to change Linkys 802.11G to a 'mixed' 802.11B

Setting up my new Palm TX. I have a wireless router in my home so I thought for sure I could use the WiFi in the Palm TX in my home. Couldn't connect sucessfully, tried Palm Tech support. They informed me the router setting has to be either 802.11B or a 'mixed' setting where it has both B & G ???
Can I change the wireless router setting from my desktop?
if so, how? Will that change effect the other laptop users in my home that use this router?
thank you so much for your help!

Thanks for choosing fixya.com

Changing to "mixed" mode should not cause any problems with your other system. It simply tells the router to transmit and receive using both B and G.

First you will need to log into the routers web interface. If you have the manual it will help greatly in doing this.

Otherwise it is usually default of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Some routers use alternate ip's the exact model would let me look up more information.

By putting one of those ip's in the address bar of your web browser your should be taken to your routers web interface. From here you can change all the settings you'll need.

You will want to find and click the "Wireless" tab at the top of the page. In here it should have a drop down menu for B-Only, G-Only, Or "mixed".

Set it to "mixed" and press save.

Here is a link to a screenshot of what the page should look like

I hope this helps you.

Dir-655 works with XP and Mac which can connect


Go to 192.168.0.1 and login. Then go for the 'Setup' tab on the top and look for the 'Wireless Settings' tab on the right.
You can now automaticly setup your WLAN connection and afterwards you can go to the 'Manual Wireless Network Setup'. Over there you can change the 802.11 mode.
  • 802.11b only
  • 802.11g only
  • 802.11n only
  • Mixed 802.11g and 802.11b
  • Mixed 802.11ng and 802.11g
  • Mixed 802.11n, 802.11g and 802.11b

Go for the last one that uses n,g and b and you will be sure your computer can connect :)
Good luck!

The first thing I would check would be in the configuration (point your web browser to 192.168.1.1 when you have a wired connection) panel, under:
Wireless settings > configuration

If the 'Wireless mode' is set to 'SuperG', this may be your problem. The SuperG setting will only work with SuperG enabled wireless adapters. First change this setting to 'Mixed 11b/11g'; if it still doesn't work switch down to '11g' then to '11b'.

Do all your wireless testing with a laptop or PC as close to the router as possible - same room at the very least.

If all other settings are correct (double check them), this is the only thing I can think of that can instantly make a difference.

If you feel the firmware may be faiilty, note that although 3.0.1 is the 'newest' on the 3com website, even in their own knowledge base they refer to newer versions. These newer versions are available at:
http://3crwdr.googlepages.com/

You could try using one of these (at your own risk), if you feel it is the firmware itself that is causing the fault.

WiFi not connecting to cisco router


most likely the Palm "listens" on another frequency.

Make sure your cisco is running the Wireless b standard as that is what the Palm Tx needs.

Mixed mode is another option (b and G at the same time)


Let's say your router is supporting the b standard. Knowing the cisco APs a bit, it is also possible to have a channel selected that an older device cannot see/or it is set for another region (which in fact is the same, as frequency ranges are different for each continent).

There are many tools for WIFI analysis, many are free. They will tell you what your router is transmitting at, etc... withouth having to go into the cisco IOS.

Changing router settings from 802.11G to mixed w/802.11B


Hi,

Switching the wireless mode is easy, and, if you choose "mixed," the other computers in your home can continue to use the G mode unaffected. How you adjust the mode depends on the brand of router. Since Linksys is the most common, here is how it works on a Linksys router:

1) Open your web browser (IE, Mozilla, etc.)
2) Type the web address 192.168.1.1 (default for Linksys routers).
3) You should be asked for a username and password. The default for Linksys is username "admin" and password "admin" OR username "admin" and password [blank].
4) You should then see the Linksys setup screen. The tabs across the top include Setup, Wireless, Security, etc. Click on Wireless.
5) Pull down the menu next to "Wireless Network Mode" (which shold be set to "G -Only" and choose "Mixed." Then click "Save Settings."

This should allow your B-capacle Palm to use the network without a password while still allowing your encryption-capable computers to use the G mode.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
