Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

Microsoft MN-710 usb driver can't see my linksys WRT170N

I set up my wireless router through my mac laptop, and it connects fine through the router. My desktop has the Microsoft MN-710 usb driver verson 1.0.8.0, can read all the surrounding routers in my complex, but can't pick up mine. I tried updating the firmware, which didn't work. I reset the security protocols, and made sure broadband was enabled. I set the settings on mixed, g only, n only, etc. and that didn't work! I tried unplugging the router and modem, etc etc, and it didn't work. Any ideas?

Software package lacks WPA patch for Windows XP for the MN-710.
Just a guess but I think your PC is unable to authenticate the AES encryption you probably have on your wifi router.

I would say go out and buy a new wifi dongle for your PC that can handle the speed of your new router anyway.

double check that your router is not broadcasting in only G, make it reverse compatible. There is a chance that the other laptop may not be G compatible. Also check the security key and make sure it is correct. If your blocking connections by MAC address make sure the MAC of the non functioning computer is added. You may want to delete the current connection settings from the laptop and restart with a fresh wireless connection. I hope this helps. Good luck

I have cable internet but it will not recognize MN 500 base station for internet


You need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Make sure the physical connection is fine. From modem to internet port of router, from pc to port 1 of the router as well. Now open the admin page of your router and look for MAC Address Clone settings. You have to enable it and click on Clone. Save the settings and power cycle your device for 1 minute.

The driver of Microsoft MN-700 router


There is no driver required. Configuration of the router is done through your web browser. The address is 192.168.2.1. It would be best to do this via a cable connection as the wireless mode may or may not be enabled. If you do not have the users manual, here is a link to download it: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...tion_guide.pdf


Good luck

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet


hi!
sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?
