Question about ASUS (wifibralinkuay) 802.11b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Sending but not receiving packages



I have an ASUS laptop with internal 802.11b card. My operating system is Windows XP SP2 (Portuguese). It identifies the public wifi networks available and makes the connection. The problem is, the system keeps sending packages but doesn't receive any, so in practice I can't connect to the Internet.


I've disable Windows manager for wifi networks and put ASUS software in command, to no avail (changed the channels, etc.) I already tried to connect in other places outside my hotel room, but nothing happened.


I'd like to know if this is a software glitch and if so, if there is any patch to solve it.


Thank you very much,

Luiz Carlos Baptista

Re: sending but not receiving packages

You need to check the settings on your firewall, as this will most likely try to block this incoming signal as a "Threat from an unknown source".


It's just trying to protect you.

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...

I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I have many problems (freezing, etc...) with my Wireless-N PCI adapter Linksys model WMP300N EU V2. I am using Windows XP SP2. Thanks alot.

I had the same problem and fix is surprisingly simple however i have the U.S. V1 of the card but to fix i uninstalled the card and all of the packaged linksys drivers. Then i reinserted the card into my PC and when windows started i got a little "Found New Hardware" pop-up and at the first part of the wizard I told it to search for a driver using windows update. It found a driver it proved to be much more stable than the one packaged with the card. No more system halts.

System do not reconize the PCI card

Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.
The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Asus 802.11 a/b/g wireless adapter problem

The problem could be with the wireless network that you are trying to access, or it has something to do with you wireless card tcp/ip protocol.

where you using the same computer now, when you had this issue with the vista? or is this win XP pc that you have now is a different computer?

if you are getting limited or no connectivity, that means that the access point (wireless signal) is not giving you a valid IP address.

you can try to add static to your IP settings, but this will only work if you knew the IP range of that network that you are trying to access.

please provide more info

Asus WL-138GE causes system to hang at boot time

Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request. Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver. Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.

XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation

I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.
