Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have a Lynksys WRT54G and an old Dell latitude C600 that I can't seem to get to connect. I've been able to connect to other wireless networks with the Dell and others have been able to connect to my wireless but the two just won't connect. I've done the usual computer illiterate thing and unplugged the router hoping that would reset something and it would somehow magically work afterwards. This, of course, didn't work ;) lol!
So, since I am computer illiterate and can't afford a tech to set this up for me I throw myself at the mercy of the interweb! ;) Any suggestions?
If you can connect your laptop to other wireless and others can connect to your wireless but you cannot means that its on your laptop wireless network configuration.
If you have Windows XP, go to Start > Connect to > right click on your wireless connection and select "Properties". Choose the "Wireless Network" tab and under "Preferred networks" remove ALL wireless network, reboot your PC and then go here again and then re-Add your own wireless network only. After you Add highlight it and click "properties" button. Checked "Connect even if this network is not broadcasting and if you have put a security on your wireless to select the correct authentication type.
Then on "Connection" tab checked "Connect when this network is in range". On "Advanced" tab make sure to Uncheck "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks".
On Windows Vista delete all Preferred Networks under "Manage Wireless Networks",(under Network and Sharing Center on Control Panel). then turn off and on your pc. And then try to reconnect and make sure this time, PC will ask for network key. ( if you set it up that way )
