Question about Edimax (ew-7128g) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Can't connect to internet

I can't connect to the internet even though the card and router appear to be talking to each other. When you view the properties via the network connections tab it says "aquiring network address". I then put the ip addresses in manually and it shows as connected but when I launch explorer it says there is no connection. The connection is fine with the same explorer settings via the ethernet card/cable.??

    Acquiring network address

  • micro13 Mar 02, 2008

    I have the same exact problem. It says it is connected. All specs are good. Strength is excellent. But, when I try to connect to the IE it dropps the signal and says "limited or no signal."

    My Router sends an excellent signal to my basement PC, which is equipped with an Airties WUS-300 USB adapter, but when I click on the connection icon it shows full signal, but "little or no connectivity" When I open the web browser t tell me that I'm not connected to the internet. When I click on the "repair connection" I get a dialog showing that it could not be repaired because it was not possible to disable the adapter????. I went to the Airties site looking for the adapter's utility tool in order to configure the WAP security encryption, but the site does not have a download for that utility. Your input is appreciated.

The issue could be with the wifi connection that your wifi adapter is connected to. If your running a windows based system, go to the system tray and right click on your wifi connection symbol (SSID) and see which network your connected to. Every LAN has its own unique name of their Local area network (LAN), if its not displaying your LAN SSID name but a different SSID name then thats the problem. If thats the case, then once again right click on the wifi connection symbol in the system tray and change the wifi connection to your SSID for "view available connection". Your wifi adapter could be picking up a wifi connection in your area and you do not have access to their LAN.

We are getting a wifi is not connected message from our unblock tv box even though the ethernet cable is connected and functioning properly.


If wifi is enabled and your TV shows it is connected, the problem lies upstream from your TV. The problem will likely be at your router where the internet first enters your home.
You could try to restart your router. Otherwise you internet service provider may be having a problem and you need to talk with them.

Can connect to router but not internet


Ok so the router will broadcast even without an IP from the modem. Without the IP even though your pc is talking to the router you will have no internet. The IP is assigned to the modem from your ISP "internet service provider" The router has to assume the IP then assign a mac address to the pc using the internet. A residential modem meaning your not a business is given a dynamic IP which can change at anytime the blade server wants it to. A business gets a static ip which never changes. There lies your issue. Whats happened is your modem has been assigned a new IP and the router is still trying use the old IP. So unplug your modem and router. Plug the modem back in and let it sync up. Once all the lights are back on "with exception for the "link" light plug the router back in give it a cpl minutes your internet will work again.

I want to add a newly purchased computer on to our Linksys router to connect to the Internet via Comcast. My computer says the cable isn't connected even though all the lights show up on the Linsys. ...


you have 2 options to connect to the router on the computer.. either wired or wireless-- if you are connecting wirelessly then just ignore "cable isnt connected" --you can change the icons so it doesnt show in CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS,(many problems with LINUX) .and have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---TRY IT NOW--if still problems---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

Router not seeing internet connection


If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Can not connect to internet using wireless


Did you input the WEP key? I will assume you are using Windows XP. So go to control panel, network connections and then go to the wireless connection and then select view wireless connections double click on the one with the highest strength, which should be your 2wire. When it asks for the network security key type in the numbers that are located on the sticker on the bottom of your router between the [########] brackets.
