    works great when directly connected. Also noticed that if I power cycle the router it will show up briefly in the list of available wireless netowrks then if I refresh the list it's gone.

What you can do is remove the wireless connection profile that is saved and create a new one. Go to wireless connection properties and create a new wireless profile. If that doesn't work, what you can try is change the wireless channel of your router to Standard Mode using channel 11 the power cycle the router.

Hello... a couple of ideas for you to try:

1. Can you move your laptop closer to your router - as close as possible - and if so, can you connect to your network then?
2. If you can, it's possible your neighbour's wireless signal is interfering with your own.

Try logging into your router via the desktop (assuming this is a wired connection), and experiment with different wireless channels (see this link on the Linksys site for help with this).

See if a different channel strengthens your signal.Channel 1, 6 or 11 are good choices to experiment with.

3. If this is not the problem, try re-entering your Network key. Disconnect from your network, wait about 20 seconds, then re-connect. Re-enter your Network Key. (Sometimes Windows says you are connected when you are not.)

Hope this helps you make a start.

Where do I find the network key for my linksyswrt150N?


This is located under the wireless settings on your linksys. This is something you would have set up when installing the router. If you don't remember or it is confusing.. Change it. I usually use the KTIP security because you can use a normal passphrase that is easy to remember. Hope this helps

No wireless connections between WRT150N and Vista Laptop


On the vista laptop, make certain that the firewall is not blocking the wireless connection. Try to turn off the firewall and see if that helps.

Wireless network using usb modem


First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.

Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.

After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.
