Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Are you using the same IP Address for both cards? If you are using DHCP from two different sources they both may be assigning the same ip address. That also could be a problem. If you are connecting to two different routers with the same gateway address, there would be a conflict there as well.

The other question I have is why are you using two separate cards. If all the computers are attached to the same router, you can send information from one computer to another an still get on the internet. In fact all the computers can get on the internet at the same time and share information.

If none of this solves your issues, tell me more about the setup? Do you understand what DHCP is? or an IP Address?

If I have solved your problem, then please leave feedback.

yes, the manufacturer doesn't really matter as long as they are 802.11g (usually backwards compatible with a and b) so as long as the router and the adapters are installed properly NO problem

Linksys WPC54GS adapter card not connecting with wireless router


for one you could try and manually connect to the network by clicking site survey then choose your network on the list then connect. make sure to adjust the channel of your router to 11.

another option is to right click the green icon on the lower right corner of the screen down by the time/clock. the linksys icon green icon that has waves on it, right click then choose use windows wireless zero configuration. then confirm it by presing yes.

an icon that look like 2 small computers will apear at the system tray just right that then view available wireles network then connect to your network.

You are connected to access point but the internet cannot be found.


Do you have a connection wizard that you can run on your computer? Linksys offers them for downloading at their website. Try that -
have you named your home network so your wireless connection can "find" it? You don't mention how your main computer is networked in. A wireless adapter for a notebook will need to have a Linksys connection wizard run on the laptop.

If you have a Linksys router connected to your main computer, it should already have the piece of software you need. Most likely, you'll need to put it on a flash drive and install it from that onto your laptop. the wizard helps also to diagnose the right settings.

If you want to post what you are using for your main network (linksys router?) and which operating systems you are using, that will help.

For example, in Vista, you'll need to enable the option for "network discovery" under your laptop's control panel/network and sharing center.

You also need to have certain settings on your main computer for the wireless to work - there are two main types of wireless connections - B and G. Most of today's routers and cards will do both, but if you have an older router, it might not be set up to handle the newer or combined types. They run on different frequencies, so your laptop might not be "reading" your router's frequency.Also, if you have other wireless/radio frequency equipment near your laptop, it can interfere with the signal being received right.

You also need to be sure that your firewall allows the linksys system to access your computer (allowed programs).

Can't connect to internet by using LINKSYS Wireless-G card


I am assuming you have a dual boot machine meaning it runs either linux or windows and not both at the same time. Linux on the other hand may not configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. You probably did some configuration for windows to enable the wireless card (if there was no encryption windows may have done it for you). Linux on the other hand may not recognose and configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. The many flavors of linux also have almost as many means to configure devices. In order to assist you I will need to know which distribution and version of linux you are using. I will also need to know the manufacturer and model (possibly number and not description) of the wireless adapter to be configured. Warning this may be easy and in other cases it may not be and I have access to few linux distributions to experiment with.
