Problem with 2Wire 802.11g Wireless USB Adapter

I recently bought a 2Wire brand 802.11g Wireless USB Adapter. It doesnot detect my wireless network (secure network) but it does detect aperson's several blocks away (unsecure network) I can type in thesettings for my network manually, but it is really slow. We have a 6 MBconnection, but it only downloads at around 600 kilobits (75 kilobytes)a second. My laptop, whichhas integrated wireless downloads at about5,600 kilobits a second (700 KB). Why would the new adapter not detectmy network? My router is a Linksys WRT110 RangePlus. Any help would begreatly appreciated!

    I was using a Linksys 802.11b usb adapter before. I thought I would upgrade to 802.11g since it is faster. Before, the old adapter detected my network, but no others. I didn't see a My Network icon on my desktop, but that may be in Vista. I have Windows XP Professional.

The adapter is been installed properly?

Try to check this settings on the router:

- Try to change the channel of the router (either 1, 6 or 11)

- Check the visibility status (if visible or invisible) (Under wireless settings)

- Make sure that the network filter (MAC address is turn off) (Under advance tab)

- Disable the wifi-protected setup of the router (Under advance tab)

- Then check the if you can detect the wireless network?

Were you using a different wireless adapter prior to the USB version you now have? Here is where I am going, It may be using the settings for the old network adapter.There could be a redundancy, this happens all the time, the best way is to start from scratch. Just use the wizard to establish a new connection. You may see the old connection while doing this, in which case I would delete it. If you rt click on my network, the icon on the desktop, and select properties, it will walk you through a new connection, this way you know that you are starting from scratch. Good luck, and let me know if this doesn't work for you, we can eliminate the obvious and look deeper, make sure to put the same encryption and key in when you set up good luck

    Try it the way I explained, I have a notebook on a linksys also, and have fixed hundreds. just right click on the icon on the desktop, it is always easier to staer fresh than trying to figure out what is wrong with the exhisting connection, it was a different adapter and the settings are different, we know it works because you are picking up a network

2wire wireless usb adapter installation for desktop


elomarcillo1,
You are attempting to install a (brand name) 2wire wireless usb adapter, normally the SBC DSL CD is ONLY what you would use to set up your SBC DSL modem. You should have a specific 2wire CD that you put in your CD Drive when you want to install the 2wire wireless usb adapter. Can you locate this CD?

Computer can't detect 2wire adapter


*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver

*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number

*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N
