You may be a victim of heat creep. This is when a module works itself loose from constant heating and cooling.

If you've recently moved the machine that could loosen it also.

Try this.

Power down PC > Unplug from wall > Unseat the card and reinstall > while you got the machine open, if it is dusty, clean it up a little. Helps the machine out a little.

I cant find the driver download for the airlink awll3026 i got windows 7 now, and cannot get internet...


Download from this link here. According to their technical announcements the windows XP driver works on Vista and 7. There are 2 variations of the driver but not enough information from your question for me to determine which so download this one first and try it. Although they affirm their driver will work in Vista and 7 I would only install the driver and not the whole software suite. Windows does a fine job managing the wireless connection anyway.

I have a problem with my NETGEAR WNA1100 Wireless-N 150 USB Adapter. I use it with my desktop PC and a Belkin 802.11g router placed in another room. As soon as I installed it, everything seemed to work...


Your Issue can be Solved by assigning DNS address on your Computer.

>First of all change the Security on the Belkin Router to WEP Mode.

--- Remove Preferred Networks From your Computer.

- Right Click on wireless Network Connection > Properties > Select Wireless Networks tab > Remove your network From Preferred Networks Box.

--- Associate with your wireless Network.

- Right Click on wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Networks > Select your network > Click connect

---> Check if you are able to go online.

--- If Not Try Assigning DNS Addresses For your Wireless Network

- Right Click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Under this connection uses the Following Items. > Double Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

- Select Use the Following DNS Server Addresses:

- Preferred DNS Server: 4.2.2.1

- Alternate DNS Server: 4.2.2.2

- Click OK & OK again

- Now Check if you are able to go online if still No go Check if you can go online on any other wireless Com or Device using the Belkin Router If Yes it Might Be an Issue with your Adapter or there Might Be an Antivirus Installed on your com Try Disabling it.

- If this doesn't work Please do get Back to us we will be happy to Help you out... :)

My Wireless connection status page is blank. Same with the wireless connection properties page and the "view available networks page"(or wireless network connection page) can't open, all it has is the top...


The AWL number was what I was looking for, thanx.
If the AirLink utility is running, there is where you would check the status. The way to set it so that the connection shows in the 'network connections '
Go into your Control Panel, then go into Network Connections
Right click on your AirLink wireless adapter and click “Properties”
Click on the “Wireless Networks” tab
Put a check in the box next to “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings”
Click “OK”

If you wish to go back to using the AirLink101 802.11g Cardbus Utility, go back into the “Wireless Networks” tab in your AirLink adapter’s properties and remove the check mark next to “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings”

Have an airlink card bus


If you have access to change the wireless routers channel do that. Log onto your router from the wired connection probably 192.168.x.1 (x is your subnet, find this by going to run>type cmd>hit enter>type ipconfig>hit enter the gateway IP should be your router

type that ip in a browser i.e. http://192.168.x.1 and log in go to wireless settings and find the channel option. usually you'll want to keep it at 1,6, or 11

(if your wireless utility doesn't show channels) go to your wireless pc and install netstumbler > install it > click the scan button and you should see all of access points around you. choose a channel that is used the least between 1, 6 and 11 and save that as your new channel on the router, as you are probably getting a lot of interference.

second try using the built in windows utility instead of the airlink one

also
update network drivers
update router firmware
don't sit around large metal objects :)

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

Installing a 32 bit air link wireless cardbus adapter AWL C3025


First have you tested a wired computer to assure all but the wireless section is configured correctly?

Second have you tested a wireless unencrypted connection to assure it works?

When choosing an encryption strategy did you assure the router and adapter supported the same choice. Generally there is WEP and WPA -- most people prefer WPA now however both the adapter and the router must support it to make it a viable choice.

To provide further assistance please check the model number of the router and provide either the manufacturer and model for the wireless adapter or the computer with a built-in wireless adapter you are attempting to connect.
