Slow Download Speed and Computer Wont Recognise The Hardware Sometimes

Ok, so got the adapter all connected up, and it's telling me it is going at 54mpbs, BUT my download speed for music wont go over 56kbps, [the settings on my downloader are all fine], whats going on? =S its really annoying, it makes streaming videos SO slow. please help. and another thing, sometimes, when i turn on my computer, it doesnt recognise the adapter, so i have to restart my computer five or six times before it will recognise it, the same thing happens with my belkin bluetooth adapter, but not with any other usb devices, any solutions are much appreciated =)

May try to check the settings in your computer particularly in hardware device settings. May also it the kind of the USB you are using. Maybe it is and old model and your computer is or your computer is old model and your usb is a new model.Try to use another usb and observe the difference.

The connection speed is so slow. What can I do to speed it up (other than moving it closer to the router - that doesnt seem to help)? I am using another computer via wireless connection at the same...

There are a few things you can try.. Try switching the slow card to the faster system. If it still slow it’s the card. Sometimes the driver on the Install CDs that come with the card need updating.. Go to the manufactures web site and download the drivers and install.. Give us the make and model number and we will provide a link to the drivers.. But I really need more info.

It connects and but time with very slow and show

It's always difficult to troubleshoot wireless because the signal can be effected by so many different variables. Easiest thing would be to connect another wireless device. If that works OK then it's your computer or wireless adapter. If that drops out too then it's your wireless router. When we find out what's at fault we can find a more detailed solution if you' be kind enough to post back.

Good Signal,Good Mbps, Slow Internet Connection?

1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.

if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.

let me know how it works out.

Belking wireless adapter install

when you are advised to connect the usb adapter, it will recognise it, then the usb host controller is installed to recognise the adapter,but it should continue to instal the driver and then recognise it as Belkin 54g, if not, then you need to keep the cd rom in and then force it to install the driver from your cd drive, but it may not be compatable with ME unles you have a windows 2000 driver.

When the installation is complete you should in any case have the belkin software icon on your desktop to set up the adapter, if not then the software has not installed fully.

It will also be listed in add/remove programmes if it's fully installed.

Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue

There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!

Internet connection lost..

Firstly try the Off Line option, sometimes this can be ticked. Or go into the Netword Card settings and try to force the speed to auto config, this will enable different speed connections

My broadband wireless adapter isn't connecting

Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
