Hooking up Linksys wireless N ultra rang plus router

Basically, since I installed this thing, my computer is anything but faster (ont the main computer). Also the signal I am receiving from the desktop computer downstairs is poor and fluctuates constantly. Am I doing something wrong? My main computer is an acer middle of the road compter. The downstairs is a dell! Is there something IM missing to as why this 80$ router plus the 60$ usb adapter isnt making the difference it should? Any help would be gladly appreciated!

You need to use the Wireless Setup either using Linksys or Windows. You accomplished setting up the system with the hardwire when you installed, now you need a second method setting for the computer to attach. In XP, go to Start/My Network Places/ Set Up A Wireless Connection ....

I no longer use the Linksys setup for the network setup because I have ran into many problems.

Also, you can contact the Customer service hotline that is in the Manual an in the setup window and they are very helpful and free of charge. They are in India, but I have used them 3 times and they speak fluent English and are better at the language than most Americans, just do not crack jokes or use slang because they will not understand some of it. The Customer Service Line with Linksys is awesome and I would rather you use them rather than take my word for it.

No connection to desktop, but great connection to laptop???


Hi Lindsay,

The very first thing that you need to do is to personalize the wireless settings of your ultra range plus router. Since your laptop is wired directlty to the router and is working properly, you can access the router's GUI to personalize the wireless settings. Open internet explorer on the working computer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar, you will be prompted to enter a username and password, by default there is no username and the password is "admin" if you have setup a password using the setup cd then use that one.
Now your inside the setup page of your wireless router, look for the tab the say's Wireless and below you will find four sub menu namely; Basic Wireless Settings, Wireless Security, Wireless Mac Address and Advance Wireless Settings.
Under Basic wireless settings change the Wireless Network Name(SSID) to something you prefer(this is a must).
For the Radio Band, set to Wide 40Mhz. Wide Channel(9), Standard Channel(11) now click on "Save Settings".
Now got to Wireless Security and for the Mode choose(WPA Personal/PSK Personal) Enter a 8 or more digit password under passphrase and click "Save Settings".

Now your done setting up your wireless router it's now time to connect your desktop wirelessly.

If your using a linksys wireless usb network adapter more or less you have also installed the WLAN Uiltility but personally I use the built in WLAN of XP and Vista.

Using the linksys WLAN Utility for to the Profiles tab and highlight default.
Click Edit and it will provide a list of available network(SSID) that your computer detects.
Select the name(SSID) that you provided the router earlier and click connect.
It will not prompt you to enter the WPA Key also known as passphrase(remember the 8 or more digit password) then click Connect to the Network.

You should now have a valid internet connection wirelessly on your desktop.

Oh and for your 2nd question the answer is No, since you already purchased and installed a wireless usb network adapter for the desktop computer you don't need to purchase a long ethernet cable or move the desktop to where the route is.


Hope this will help you get connected.

Regards

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
