You need to get into your routers settings and make sure that DHCP is enabled to automatically assign ip addreses and also go to the properties of your wireless adapter and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Turn off any WEP or WPA security until you have all the connections, make sure that the adapter is on the same wireless channel as your router and that all the pc's are on the same network workgroup eg WORKGROUP or MSHOME. It may be as simple as right clicking on your wireless adapter icon in control panel>network conections and select connect.

When you insert the setup disk on your computer, you can exit from the setup and then connect the adapter to the computer and a new window will popup "Found New Hardware Wizzard" and in that select the option "Install the drivers Automatically" and click on next, so it will automatically search for the drivers and install it on your computer...

I previously was able to connect to internet and suddenly it no longer will connect- is there anything I can try to troubleshoot this? I am running Windows XP

are you sure you are using the right protocol in aqccordance with the information from your provider.. WEP or WPA-PSK?" and the right number to open the gateway?

If the newtwok drops out, sometimes this information is lost and has to be reinserted. If you uninstall linksys and remove the usb and then reinsert it, does it flash and become discovered?
Also make sure you have set up wireless network in XP

If a wrong protocol is inserted Linksys will often report.. Connected to the Network But internet gateway not found... If you get that message then ewither your protocls are incorrect or you have not set up the network correctly. your ISP should be able to guide you through this by phone support.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?

No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.

Router connecting to Linksys USB adapter

to confirm if your Network adapter's assigned IP, subnet, Gateway & DNS
  • Start > Run > cmd
  • at cmd prompt type: ipconfig /all
  • look at the parameters given to your Network Device that is connected to the router (IP, Subnet, Gateway & DNS Servers.
  • Verify those addresses if they are reachable by pingging. Check your IP, Gateway, then check for the DNS Addresses. Type cmd prompt: ping ip_address << do not omit the periods between the numbers.
  • See if there are replies from those addresses. if you get Request timed out, tell us here which part you get one. if you can receive a reply from those addresses (gateway & DNS Servers) definitely you are already connected to the internet. Just check your Browser's connection setting.
