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!

By remote i suppose you mean your Wireless keyboard. if that is the case then simply log into your wireless router. All you need to do it to change your WiFi broadcasting channel. Go to WiFi or Wireless Lan setting and make sure that broadcasting is b/g/n mixed mode, then check what broadcasting channel is selected starting from 1 to 11/13, in case of extreme start or end make in middle like 6 or 7 and in case of any middle number like 6 to 8 make it either 10 or 3. By changing the broadcasting channel shall hopefully stop any interference with other frequencies.
I have the same card with Tecra A4. It was working fine with a D-Link 615 wireless router then for no reason it stop working I was able to detect my wirless network but no communication session started between my card and the router. I restrat the router and change the OS fro Linux to XP but still I have the same problem.
At the end I notice that in simple words my card cannot talk at all with the router. So I went to the router wirless settings and change the protocol from: mixed 802.11 N, mixed 802.11 G, mixed 802.11 B to only 802.11 G and 802.11B
Connection and signal strength depends upon the router. Just go through the settings on the wireless router, try changing the wireless channels.And also change the wireless mode on the router to 802.11g.This should be the compatible mode for your wireless adapter. to do this first connect the router with the help of an ethernet cable .Please follow the below steps:
1)Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (you do
not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then
press the “Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The
home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any
changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page
will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password
entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.
Your Router can operate in three different wireless modes:
“g and b”, “g only”, and “b only”.
Change the wireless channel to 9 or 11
Click on save changes once you have done this
This should work,if it doesnt work let us know the exact problem in detail.
Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
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. H2H

you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.
