You are joking right ?

Windows Me is an 'upgrade' to windows 98se .. it has ZERO security .. even assuming you c an get a wireless card/dongle for it, if you connect that to the web and it will be infected with every virus / root kit / Trojan on the planet within minutes ... and will then go on to infect all your other machines in the same household.

If it has Me, chnaces are its Pentium 2, 128Mb RAM or less .. chuck it (or donate it to 3rd world recycle) = it's not worth having your Bank a/c, email, eBay, paypal log-in details stolen

I have an old laptop that has a linksys wireless-b notebook adapter and my new computer with a linksys router attached is a linksys dual-band wireless-n. I can not get the notebook to link to the router...


Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Linksys WUSB54GC on Windows 2000...no worky


Hi,

Did you install the Linksys WLAN monitor to manage the wireless settings? If not, I'm afraid that you won't be able to configure the wireless settings on your 2000 computer without the Linksys WLAN monitor installed.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

Router and configuration settings for DSL wireless setup


Maybe you should use same brand of your adapter, use belkin wireless router.

Most of the router has a manual attachment, it will teach you how to configure the router..
