Make sure you have followed the instructions for installation first. Most wieless nic require that you install the software first before inserting the modem. It can cause damage to the part when not properly installed. Also check the system specifications that the modem requires. Please comment if this is not the case.

Hope this helps you

    Engenius wireless lan usb2.0 adapter driver


    A lan adaptor driver is fixable by downloading from the network site of the USB 2.0.
    important notes
    1. Lan adaptors are outdated versions incompartible with recent operating systems. Acquiring a new USB device or even wireless modems are the latest alternatives to lan computer connections of the past. Modern wireless modem connection have built in installation kits,also present is the computers capability to recognise to integrate to a network.

    Check if it's recognised on the local area network etc,make sure driver is installed and you may need to reset all pc,router etc to get connection.Now remember you need a router for this to work,with only a modem it will not function.You also need to restart all instruments etc before it's picked up by the router and the network..Google a bit and it will solve this.Make sure it uses wifi and not bluetooth as then it will need the right bluetooth connection to your pc..

    Wireless network broken, access to WRT54G & Motorola 2210-02 via http.. denied


    I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.

    Wireless router


    Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing.
    - Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer.
    - If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.
