Question about InFocus LiteShow 802.11b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Liteshow adapter will not communicate with notebook computer

I am running LiteShow Manager on a Dell Latitude D630 with Windows XP. I am trying to make the computer connect with a LiteShow wireless adapter LP120-D. When I open LiteShow Manager, it pops up a message telling me that:

"LiteShow Manager requires a wireless network adapter with Network Object IDentifier (OID) support for full functionality. Scanning and network switching will be diabled."

When I click OK and the software opens, it has a message telling me that there is no OID support in the status bar of the LiteShow Manager window, and offers no other options except Show Preferences, Help, or Close. The Show Preferences option merely allows me to adjust performance setting, enable encryption, and save favorites.

The computer has a wireless card (IntelPRO Wireless 3945ABG) and a broadband card (Broadcard NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller), as well as a 1394 Net Adapter. All drivers are up-to-date.

The computer is able to "see" LiteShow on the available wireless networks, and after some effort, I finally got it to connect to LiteShow and it has an excellent signal at 11 Mbps. However, the projector will not display the computer screen, nor will the computer allow me to adjust for more than one screen.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Problem solved! Apparently, one should not trust Windows when the device manager checks for new drivers and reports that all drivers are current. I found a later driver available online from Intel and once I installed it, everything works just as it should.

The InFocus Liteshow I uses an ad-hoc wireless connection by default. Open the properties of your wireless device, click "Let Windows manage this device", go to the advanced properties and change the setting "Networks to access" to "Computer-to-computer (ad-hoc) only". This worked for me.

Windows driver


I believe that this is an incredibly old piece of hardware, so I won't be surprised if there is no more support for it.

You'd be better off getting a new wireless adapter, they sell for as low as a few dollars (TP-Link gives a good bang for the buck).

If I don't have the install cd... can I use it with a modern (Windows 7) laptop?


Windows 7 contain already many drivers for different hardware.
To be sure what to do you should check on producers website to check compatibility between windows 7 and this device. Many times producers allow to download from their website drivers for different versions of Windows. If you cannot find the driver for Windows 7 you can try installing it also with drivers designed for Windows Vista. many times they work anyway.
Let us know if you solved the problem

I can't see any wirless network,when i search for them.i installed all intell and dell driver . plaz solve this problem.dell latitude D800


Hello,



The first thing that I would advise you to do is,



Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,



(For WIndows XP)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,



select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",


This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



(For WIndows Vista)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to



Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",



This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.



It should connect like that.



Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,



Hope this helps.



Thank you for using Fixya.


Goodluck

"WPC54G is not installed"


Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.

You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.

Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.

Won't load software properly


Have you chcked if the system recognizes the card and installs the correct drivers?
Otherwise go to the linksys website and look for the xp drivers for your model and instal it?
