Question about 2wire (1000-100052-000) 802.11g/b Wireless 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!
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
