You should check to see if there is a router firmware update and also one for your network adapter. You can use Dell's support website for the adapter

Just got a new linksys e3000 router. all other laptops working fine except one toshiba with vista. i have another toshiba with vista that is working fine also though. it will connect wirlessly if i disable...


You have to update the wireless adapter driver on the toshiba website. I'm guessing you have an Atheros adapter because those usually have this problem. The driver is not advanced enough to log onto a WPA or WPA2 encryption, WEP will work fine. The driver updates have a 50/50 chance of fixing the problem otherwise you are stuck with WEP.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Vista internet connection through Linksys router only partial


Go to Network and sharing center, then network connections, right click you your network connection and choose properties. Then choose Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) Does it say "obtain ip address automatically" ? Do the same for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

I can't reach my ip to change my lan config


yeahlife,

The default IP Address for Linksys routers is 192.168.1.1. You may want to try accessing your router's configuration by typing this IP Address in your browser.
If you have any additional troubles, please let me know.

Remote pc cannot access wireless


You can do a reset on your router. All computers must be must be getting its connection from your router. Your wired computer must be getting an ip address from the router(example is 192.168.1.x). You can then access the router page using your browser by typing the default gateway(example 192.168.x.1). This will take you to the router configuration page. You can set up the wireless network and your wireless network can now support more than 2 wireless computers.

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network


I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.

Not detecting any wireless networks


You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).

Linksys WRT54G wireless router problem using Vista


The following is not a solution but a set of steps to determine an issue. Wire the router back up -- connect a computer to it using a wire -- can it access the internet? If so the WAN side router config is fine. The issue appears to be a wireless issue. Did the wireless card lose the proper configuration settings to access the router? Did the wireless adapter disconnect and need to be reconnected?

If nothing above was an issue we need to do some other testing -- I do not believe this is likely in this scenario where things were working -- but as we have not yet found out a cause.

Turn all machines on before the test and do not turn off until after

On at least one wired computer that is working and one wireless computer attaching to the linksys router I want you to do the following

Click Start then All Programs1.gif then Accessories then Command Prompt

In the window that opens type

ipconfig /all

press enter then record all of the following for each adapter1.gif
The back in the window enter the following command using the default gateway from the wired connection (your router address)

ping 192.168.1.1

you will either get 4 timeouts -- the connection fails or 4 messages with elapsed times generally measured in ms or milliseconds.

What you are looking for in the above
Good entries base
u should be unique for the linksys network1.gif
Wired IP address 192.168.1.u
SubNet Mask ?.?.?.? assuming 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
DNS addresses ?.?.?.? not 0.0.0.0
where at least one is not zero.

Then wireless entries should be
Wired IP address 192.168.1.u should be 192.168.1.u
SubNet Mask same as wired
Default Gateway same as wired
DNS addresses same as wired
If these are wrong there is a configuration error either in the router or wireless adapters depending on how you want your network setup.

each connected adapter wired and each wireless should also
successfully ping the default gateway or router address

If the ipconfig is right and the wired config has successful pings, then every wireless adapter that fails has a wireless config issue.

If you are willing to work through this let me know and reply with information in a comment to this issue.
