Question about Linksys WUSB300N Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Will not automatically connect to network. Must reconnect manually each time.

This problem only happens when security is enabled, any kind of security, even WEP.  The router is a DLink 624i and both are set to WPA PSK. We have checked the password phrase a hundred times and that is not the issue, and we have checked all the available levels of security: WEP, WPA2 PSK and WPA PSK.  Firewalls are turned off on both computers and I've even tried this with Norton turned off.

 

Each time the satellite computer is turned on it must be manually connected to the network, and then shows throughput of about 54mbps, with signal strength of between 45 & 85%.   Once connected all works fine and to make it even more frustrating, every now and then there will be a connection and manual connection is not required.

 

I'm about to give up and buy an new router but I have a hunch that this is not a hardware issue. ANy thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Bear001,

I do not understand what you mean. The only entry that is asked for is the security code, the length of which varies depending on whether we try WPA or WEP. We are not working on a network, only using the router to broadcast a signal for the satellite laptop to use to access the web.

Thanks.

Did you put in The 26 digit code from your router? I know you need to have all computers on same workgroup , and the 26 digit code in all of them on your network, I think if you make sure, of those things mentioned above it may continue to work for you, I sure hope that gets you by your problem Thanks

go to the security tab and st it up to use WPA2 and create a password.

I set up my Belkin N Wireless Modem and it has been working fine. Except I did not install it with a "password" at the time of setup. How do I put in a password now. I cannot find a program in...


Hi psheayn,

Kindy copy this steps in notepad and also copy the screen shot before u start doing it.

You can put up a wireless password manually b logging in to the router interface but you should be very careful because if you change any thing else it might be a messup your whole router so kindly do the following steps alone.

Step 1: Open the internet explorer

Step 2: Clear the address bar and just type the number alone which is 192.168.2.1

Step 3: You will get router screen as below

Step 4: In the left corner of the page under "Wireless" Security and select security mode as "64 bit WEP "

Step 5: Type any 2 numbers per box as u like and apply changes. Also make sure that you are gonna copy the password. If you want to connect any other computer in future you will need to have that password to connect.

Step 6: Under security in left side select "WPS or Wifi Protected Setup" and select WPS as disabled and apply changes. Dont worry it not related to security its just an option that has to be disabled if you enable the 64 bit WEP password.

Step 7: Then Connect wireless computer to the wireless network name and will ask for the password this time since password has been enabled. And ur router is gonna be a protected one and no one can hack it.

Step 8: In case if ur not able to connect to the network remove the preferred network and connect to it.

To remove preferred network

XP OS

Start -->control pannel --> Network and Internet connection-->Network connection --> Right click on Wireless network connection icon --> Select 2nd tab Wireless network --> Remove preferred network one by one.

Windows Vista/ Windows 7

Start -->control pannel --> Network and Internet connection -->Network and sharing center --> In the left side select Manage Wireless network and remove preferred network one by one.


Check out the screen shot to enable security on the Router and to disabled WPS

Hi, You can add the networks through your system prefrences and set the wireless network to automatically connect to your mac book however the recomendation would be to always keep your settings to ask you before connectting to a wireless network, this will keep your notebook secure.

Unable to open internet page


let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.
