I am having trouble connecting a wireless LAN 2.0 adapter.
The software is installed and the adapter lights up green but the icon stays red.
I have followed the instructions but the box illustrated on page 6 only has 3 tabs - status, statistics and about.
Where it says connected to it says scanning and that is as far as I get.
I would appreciate some advice.

Re: connecting wireless adapter
There is some additional information that would be required before I answer your questions:
1. Which Operating System are we using. If it is Windows XP, which service pack (Control Panel -> System)?
2. Which Wireless Router or Access Point?
3. The computer is a laptop or a desktop
4. If it is a desktop, what is the distance between the router and the computer.

Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.
Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.
INSTALLING THE WIRELESS LAN DEVICE DRIVER Please follow the procedures below for installing the Mini PCI Adapter driver: Installing Wireless LAN driver for Windows XP 1. Click the Start button and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears. 2. Click Browse button and specify the directory as "E:\Drivers\Winxp\Wireless LAN\setup.exe" 3. Click "OK" to implement the setup program to install this driver. 4. Click "Next" twice to continue the installation. INSTALLING THE LAN DEVICE DRIVER • Wireless LAN Access When LED turns on indicates that the wireless LAN module is activated. When LED lights off, it indicates that the function is disabled MUST BE A SOFTWARE ACTIVATED SWITCH
How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router1.Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off. 2.Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port. 3.Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC. 4.Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly. 5.Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure other settings.
go in device manager select your wireless card,uninstall it then refresh it or restart computer,and alow it to auto install,maybe a program changed the configuration.Give me feed back on this at firstname.lastname@example.org
If someone else setup the router for you they may have turned off the wireless. If you can connect via ethernet use the web based configuration utility to turn it back on.
The intial setup is as follows in the manual:
To provide an initial wireless connection to your network and the Internet:
1 Connect the SBG900 to the cable TV system as described in Section A.
2 On each wireless client computer, install the wireless adapter hardware and
driver software according to the manufacturer's instructions.
3 On each wireless client computer, set up a wireless adapter profile to
“connect” the client to the SBG900. The procedure depends on your
wireless adapter and computer operating system.
In your initial profile, use the SBG900 default wireless Network Name
(ESSID) motorola (case-sensitive).
Your computers are connected but not secure.
The default SBG900 settings provide no wireless security. After
your wireless LAN is operational, be sure to enable security as
described in “Setting Up the Wireless LAN” in the SBG900
1. what is the model number of your adapter? 2. what is the operating system of your computer? 3. did you install the wireless adapter on your pc or is it a built in wireless adapter?
-- if you install another wireless adapter on your pc, possible that its the one causing the conflict between the two utility. I suggest to disable the other adapter before installing the other wireless adapter -- if the wireless adapter is a built in wireless adapter and you are using a windows xp computer, chances are that the built in utility and the xp wzc are the one causing the problem. you have to disable one of this utility to make your connection working -- the utility is sometimes located at your system. if you wish to use the utility you have to disable the wzx or the other way around.
Make sure that the built-in wireless lan is disabled. If your pc is XP or vista, uninstall the new WIRELESS LAN(go to control panet, add/remove programs), select the Atheros Software. Leave the WIRELESS ADAPTER connected to your pc. Insert the disc, do not run the set up. RESTART THE PC. The drivers for the WIRELESS ADAPTER should install, if not load drivers manually.
MAKE SURE WIRELESS ZERO CONFIGURATION for XP is running. You should be able to detect wireless networks.
