Question about Linksys Rangeplus Wireless Pc Adapter
I installed it properly and when I try to connect it to a wireless connection, it'll say that the signal is strong and is connected in the Linksys Wireless Monitor, but then Windows says that I have ''little to no connectivity.''
This has happened at my apartment and my parents' house. Before my computer was sent out and had the harddrive restored to factory conditions, the wireless card was working fine.
The Diagnostic says that it's the password, but it is the proper one, because the built-in wireless card connects just fine.
I tried putting in the password in different securities (WEP, WPA) but I know it's WEP and it's still not working.
I uninstalled the adapter and reinstalled it, but to no avail.
This is for the RangePlus Wireless Notebook Adaptor, Model No. WPC100
you are getting an incorrect ip address so what we need to do is to reconfigure the wireless profile,
open up the linksys utility and go to the tab that says profile,you will see the profile that you have configured earlier,
click on the profile and click on remove once the profile is removed ****,go to the tab that says site survery...
click on your network and then click on connect it will take you through a setup screen,then choose the security whether it is wep/wpa and down below choose the bit type if the security key has 10 characters then it is 64bit and if it is more than 10 characters then 128bit....donot put the passphare to generate a key,directly punch in the number..
****1 more step you can perform before creating a new profile is go to start,run in the box type in cmd and then open the black box then type in netsh winsock reset catalog and then hit enter it will tell you to restart the computer,restart the computer and then try creating a new profile...make sure the internal wireless card is disabled when you create a profile..
hope this works for you...

One other thing - if your internal wireless card is picking up an address that may prevent the other one from doing so - see if you can disable the internal card.
The only thing I can think of that would actively stop a card getting an IP address even with the correct password is if you have MAC address filtering enabled on your router - go into the router config and see if you can find if this is enabled, and add the MAC address of the new card (you can get this by IPCONFIG /ALL from the CMD prompt again).
