Question about Linksys Wireless-G WGA54G 802.11g/b (wap54ag) Wireless Gaming Adapter
Pos wont connect. all cable connected properly.... laptop works wireslessly, but this new computer we are trying to connect with linskys wireless-g claims it cannot
Synbad, You are having the exact same problem I had with mine. Dikla's solution is only part of it. First, un-install D-links software and un-hook the modem cable from the 54G. Use the control panel use the add/remove programs link, look for the D-link software if its there. If not there should be an uninstall in it's drop down menu when you clink on it from the start up menu. Shut down with re-start. After you are back to your desktop, turn off your "wireless" connection on the computer if it has one. Re-install the D-link software. Follow their instructions very carefully. You'll be asked to power up your 54G first but not plug it into the computer. Make sure all the lites on the panel of the 54G are as they should be per the manual. Plug in the 54G when the software instructs you to do so. Not before that or the computer will not recognize it. After it has asked you to connect to the computer, it will ask you to open your browser. Remember you are not hooked up to the Internet and should not be. You will be instructed to type in an address something like ***http://192.168.0.1 or something simiular. That will connect you to the 54G. You'll enter "admin" and a password the manual gives you. Your manual gives all the rest of the instructions which are easy to follow. Only after you have successfully connected to the Internet do you begin to do any firmware updating. If that is done wrong you really have a problem so don't worry too much about that for now. This should fix it for you as it did for me. Let us konw how it goes. We are all here to help.
