Question about Linksys 2.4 GHz 802.11b Wireless - B PCI Adapter (WMP11) (LINKSYSWMP11)
HELP! I have a Dell desktop in my home office. I have cable broadband internet (Time Warner). I also have another computer in my office hard wired to the cable. Many moons ago I had a Linksys router installed so I could get on line (wireless) with our laptops......works fine. So, I just set up an older Dell with MS 2000 OS, put in a 2.4 GHz PCI Adapter in it (that I brought home from the office) and I cannot figure out how to add the wireless connection to that computer. I have followed everything in the instruction but I know I am missing something important as I cannot find the wireless network? Can anyone help walke me through this. Mucha appreciated.
1) Go to the computer that is connected directly to the Linksys router.
2) Open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser).
3) In the address bar, where it says "http://www...." clear out everything in there and type in the following numbers:
Press "enter" on your keyboard. This will open up a dialog box asking for your username and password. Try leaving the username blank, and type in "admin" for the password.
Now you're in a web page that controls your router. Look for the Wireless section, and make sure wireless is enabled. Check for wireless security as well, because you may need to enter a long number in your computer once it finds the router.
If you still need more help, feel free to ask.
