Hi,
Since you have two identical wireless adapters from linksys. Swap them around to check if the adapter is failing or the settings are incorrect . I personally think its the adpater .
Additional you can delete the wirless profile , from the computer 2 and create a fresh connection.

Click on the Start button >>> Control Panel >>> Network Connections-
Here right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon and select
Properties- Click on the 'Wireless Network' tab- Click on the 'Remove or delete "'
==============================

To make a new connection
Click on the Start button >>> Control Panel >>> Network Connections-
Here right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon and select
Properties- Click on the 'Wireless Network' tab- Click on the 'Add'
button below- Provide the network name in the SSID box exactly as set
on the router/gateway(as it is case sensitive)- Data encryption (WEP/WPA enabled) should be checked- Uncheck the box that says, "The key is
provided for me automatically"- Type the network key in the Network
key box as set on the router/gateway and then confirm it again and
click Ok.Check if that works...



Thanks

Well if I had two of those I would first make sure that the metal on the ends that go into the computer to work and are not damaged. After that I would make sure it's installed properly and whatever system you're using recognizes is completely. If nothing after that, then I would just take it to a local computer store and see if they can see what's wrong with it.

"NO association with access point". and "Adapter is inactive"' means that iether the adapter is not inserted properly, or the drivers are not properly installed.

Try first turning off laptop.
Remove battery and unplug adapter from laptop.
Remove card.
RE-plug and restart laptop with no card.
Check is card is in device manager list, if it is there, remove it and restart again.
Reinstall card software.
Insert card if asked by software, or restart laptop.

If you do not have software disk download from Linksys.

If that does not work, the network adapter may be defective, or Windows has a problem with the driver.

First of all, are you trying to connect to a secured wireless network (router)?

If one is working, have you booted that system down, and swapped the adapters, then booted that system back up, and did it work?

We need to work through this systematically, and I can help you do that.

Wireless router cannot connect to XBOX Live


I have a linksys 10/ 1000 card and a 2wire wirless router and had the same problem. You need to go to your control panel and double click the wireless network. Once you set it up you need to make sure that if you have a firewall that the xbox has permission to access the net. Also all wireless devices have a security measure some have WEP keys and others have passwords you need to find out what yours is.

Hi,

It's true that using router and adapter of the same brand will give you maximum performance. And YES, you can confuse both router and adapter. No matter whats brand, you can boost your adapter performance by changing its link speed or duplex to 100M/Full Duplex. This will gives you maximum performance then Auto Function of the Duplex.
Logically its NOT True but Practically I have done it many time.

Linksys WGA54G ver.1 cannot find


Hi,

Try to use the game adapter as your wireless adapter to test if it is still working. Connect the game adapter to your PC and then configure it manually. Assign a static IP address on your PC same range as your game adapter and then configure the wireless settings same as your router. the Default IP address of the game adapter is 192.168.1..250.

2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.

if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.

Hooking up my gaming router


There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at www.linksys.com/download
