Question about Linksys Rangeplus Wireless Pc Adapter
I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 with a Linksys Rangefinder Plus wireless adapter (WPC100), AT&T broadband with a 2WIRE 3800 gateway, which is connected to a desktop computer (gateway). Tha desktop works fine, the wireless is a constant problem. Sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it works for one user and not another. There does not seem to be any kind of pattern to the problem. Any suggestions? It constantly says in the status for the wireless connection: "acquiring network address". Sometimes using the Monitor software that came with the adapter works, sometimes it doesn't. I've run out of ideas! Help me please!
you can try updating the drivers for the wireless card and also you can change the wireless channel for the router....downl below is the link to download the drivers...
to change the channel number you need to go to the desktop which is connected to the 2wire router,click on start,run,cmd and hit enter,once you are in this black box type in ipconfig and hit enter,out of these results search for deault gateway it shuld be like 192.168.1.254...make a note of this numbers.Open up a browser page and type the numbers in the address box it should open 2wire box,you will see may tabs click on top click on the tab that says home network,in the page you will see another option that says wireless settings,click on wireless settings,once you click this tab you will be told to put in the password,put in the password that is generally the word password or admin,once you are through you will be navigated to the wireless settings page you will see channel number it might be 6 change it to eihter 9 or 11 as these are least channel where there will be least interference..once you change it to these number click on save settings..now try connecting to the network and check if it is working properly now....
best of luck.....try out the steps incase you are stuck let me know for any clarification
