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

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.??

    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.

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 had the same Linksys router, and the same issue as well. I continually reset it. Resetting the router would provide better connectivity to my laptop, but it would fail all to soon. I wound up switching routers, and the issue was resolved. I would recommend that you rest the router and see if that helps. If not, then I would recommend a new router.

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.

    Internet problem

    If you are talking about a wireless router, try changing the channel that the wireless router is using. Many times there is interference from yours or a neighbors portable phone.

    Can't connect to internet

    It sounds like the driver for the USB network device is not loaded correctly. So, you'll need to reinstall it from scratch. Unplug everything, install the software, then reattach the usb cable to the PC.

    The other thing is, did you DISABLE the network adapter that was already in your PC when you added the USB network adapter? If not, you need to do that. If they are both active but only one is connected, the system could still be trying to use the other network adapter and tying up the resources in the process.

    Hooking linksys to gigafast

    There are some question's that should probably be asked before we begin. Generally a wireless adapter or network card is present in a computer to allow it to access a wireless router which is connected to an internet service provider (generally a dsl connection through a phone line or a cable modem from your cable provider. Your request seems to be to get a computer to talk to a wireless router to talk to a wireless router to talk to your internet service provider (dsl or cable). I will assume after reading this that you probably have or will get a wireless adapter for the computer to talk to one or both of the wireless routers you appear to have. Wiring two wireless routers in the same house may be useful if the home is large or the wireless routers operate on different bands (a, b, g or frequencies) and you have different computers that require the different bands. however both wireless routers are in my experience connected to each other using a wire. Once we clarify the above we can probably address the connectivity issues for the devices you require.
