Question about Microsoft Ethernet MN-120 Network Adapter

1 Answer

Limited connectivity within Wireless Network

I have several computers and a games amachine connecting to my Orange Livebox. In trying to add another Windows XP SP2 machine with Linksys 54G PCI card to the network I get a limited connectivity message. The signal strength is good, but when I examine the settings for the connection I see a private IP address of 169.xx.. and a DHCP setting of 255.255.255.255 which is diagnosed as an illegal DHCP address with Net diagnostics through Windows Help. I also get a statement that the IP address is set to automatic private address, but I can't find out how to change, or what is causing the mismatch.

Make sure the software you are trying to use is Vista compliant and even more so that you are not using a 64bit version of vista because a 32bit application will have issues running in that environment.

Wireless connection using livebox and belkin usb adaptor


You most likely need to reconfigure the livebox settings. The Livebox lost the settings because it was unplugged too long. Most router settings can be accessed by typing in 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 in the URL address bar of any web browser. From there, make sure that all other switches and devices on the network are on the same network. Meaning if your Livebox default gateway is 192.168.1.1 make that the switch that other devices are connecting to the network through are assigned the IP address 192.168.1.x where x is any number other than 1. I hope this help, I know its not comprehensive enough but once I'm a 'Guide' you will be able to chat with. Then we can have conversation via IM Chat. This is my area of expertise.

Livebox


I just paid Orange Fr to send a techy to help get my wifi working with my Laptop. All she did was access the wifi icon on my laptop. Once there she tyoed in the code; at this point she pressed the wifi button on the Livebox and hey presto I was in business. The mnistake I was making was to press the Connect button on the Laptop. I think pressing the wifi button is like pairing using Bluetooth. Now all I have to do is get the TV working. How do you connect a SCART outlet to HDMI. My TV is so new there are no SCART ports on it.

Asus 802.11 a/b/g wireless adapter problem


The problem could be with the wireless network that you are trying to access, or it has something to do with you wireless card tcp/ip protocol.

where you using the same computer now, when you had this issue with the vista? or is this win XP pc that you have now is a different computer?

if you are getting limited or no connectivity, that means that the access point (wireless signal) is not giving you a valid IP address.

you can try to add static to your IP settings, but this will only work if you knew the IP range of that network that you are trying to access.

please provide more info

See if the Packard bell wireless adaptor is there. If its is not there, right click the Network Adapter and click Scan for hardware changes, and reinstall the network adapter.
  2. If the Packard bell network adapter is already there, click Start and click My Network Places. On the left side of the Network Connection, click View Network Adapter. The wireless network adapter should be there. Right click the wireless network adapter and choose properties. Give check mark on Show icon in notification area when connected (to show you if there is wireless notification), and give check mark to Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity (to show if the wireless network is disconnected). and click OK
  3. Turn on the orange broadband livebox. And right click the the wireless network connection (on Network Connection) and choose View Available Wireless Networks. And the click the Orange broadband Livebox to use this wireless Network connection.

Connecting powerline ethernet adapters through orange livebox


Try to eliminate the problem into smaller parts. Try networking the two via the same power outlet via a multiple power board first in the same room. I don't have much experience with these powerline ethernet but i'm sure the configuration of these will be very similar as wireless router / access points and wireless adapter cards. However what I do know is that your power outlets need to be on the same "phase" of your electrical power system, so if you do this test I suggest (from one outlet board) you know the equipment works and your setup procedure works. then try seperating again and if it still doesnt work, check if your power outlets are wired on seperate phases (depends if your house has 3 phase wiring incoming to your home or not). Try another room or another outlet.
