Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Do eMachine laptops all have to have custom parts since they're so narrow/small?

I'm trying to install a Linksys 802.11 wireless adapter from an older computer into my eMachine but the card is too big!

Not custom parts what you could do is take the old one to the shop and see if they have got one that will fit yours.

Hi tbopper, install linksys software. Follow the instruction. Disable your anti virus / firewall software. (temporally). Make sure the PC with the wireless card is turned on.
Than open My Network connections & run windows Set up a home or small office network. Follow windows instructions.
That's it. When you restart your PC your Anti virus software should enable it's self. Check your firewall is also back on, if it's included in your anti virus it will re-inable it's self. Since your running a wireless make sure you enable security & password, other wise anyone with a wireless can tap into your wireless signal slowing your bandwith down.
To test your linksys is correct. Open internet explorer. In the address window type in 192.168.1.1 & press enter. Your settings should show up. Tech support is free with linksys.

Good Luck & Enjoy!

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

You may need to uninstall your current usb's and let Windows redetect them.

click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Click on tab HARDWARE, click on DEVICE MANAGER. Scroll down to UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLER. Delete everything there. Click on ACTION, SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. It should redetect and you should be good.

It's not a internet controller, it's the driver.
It's not the driver for an emachine w3653 (which is the pc) it's the driver of the Linksys wireless card. Go here

go to the page of your card and from there get the Vista driver.

I have an older version of the linksys wireless adapter WUSB11B, how do I get it to work with my desk top


Did you plug it in to your desktop and did the found new hardware wizard pop up? If it is an older version chances are Windows will recognize it and install it automatically. Once it is installed search for wireless networks to connect to just like it was a laptop.

Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Hello well i just got a linksys wusb11 2.6 adapter and i tried installing it on my laptop with windows 7 and i downloaded the driver from linksys and it installed but it still doesnt work


I just had this problem with the same adapter when trying to set up my mom's new computer. What happens is the older adapters don't have drivers compatible with a 64bit operating system (generally found in computers with 4 or more gigs of ram).
In order to check what kind of Opperating system you have go to control panel-->system and security-->system and there will be your specifications go down the list until your find "system type" and that will say either 32 bit operating system or 64 bit operating system.
If you have a 64bit system the best thing to do is to go buy a new adapter and make sure you can get 64 bit drivers for it.
Or what I did was. I got a long network conected it to the router which is faster then wireless.

The operating system on your computer is Windows 7 and the adapter is WUSB54GC. You are getting the Error 211 that means the drivers are not installed properly.
Though you have the CD of the adapter, you will need to download the drivers for the adapter from the web site.
Go to www.linksys.com/download , enter the model number of the adapter. select the proper version of the adapter. download the drivers for windows 7.
Now try to install the downloaded drivers. It will work.

I have a laptop running 802,11 g/b and vista and I Cant connect to linksys wag160n wireless router(802,11 n). laptop sometimes recognises network but when I try to connect it wont. could you help ?


Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

I use the same wireless G router that you have pictured. If you reset the router with the small reset button the security should be removed. If your laptop does not find the SSID which should be just LINKSYS after a reset make shure your technologys are the same. Is the wireless adapter on your laptop a G also? If you are using a N technology on your laptop it may not connect to or even see the G SSID

for one you could try and manually connect to the network by clicking site survey then choose your network on the list then connect. make sure to adjust the channel of your router to 11.

another option is to right click the green icon on the lower right corner of the screen down by the time/clock. the linksys icon green icon that has waves on it, right click then choose use windows wireless zero configuration. then confirm it by presing yes.

an icon that look like 2 small computers will apear at the system tray just right that then view available wireles network then connect to your network.
