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

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.
Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled.
