WLAN USB Adapter Working; WLAN Wireless Router Not Working

I've been having problems with my WLAN internet connection during the past couple of days.

Yesterday and today, we turned the computer on first thing in the morning at around 7am, tried to access the internet through the wireless router and found it to not be working. It was only until 9am that it finally decided to respond.

Yesterday when it finally worked I've had no problems with it all day. Today's been a different story. The same thing happened again this morning, but this time the wireless router keeps losing connection periodically throughout the day and then eventually works again for short periods of time.

The strange thing is that the USB Adapter (DWL-G122) seems to be working, with no internet connection problems whatsoever.

So does anyone know what is causing this problem? Is there something that I've done wrong? Is it something to do with the area I'm living in (Norfolk, England)? Has it anything to do with the recent thunderstorms in the UK?

Thanks

    I should also say... the computer using the router is an XcCube using Windows XP, and the adapter is plugged into my Acer laptop, which uses Windows Vista Home Premium.

The router could be crapping out on you. Hit the reset button and see if that solves the problem. If that don't work uninstall then reinstall the system. If the problem remains contact your internet provider to see if it is on their end. If all else fails buy a new wireless system!

Power, DMZ, WLAN leds OFF. Ethernet, Internet are solid ON.


With the signs that you have describe about your router, this is a clear signs that the router is already bad the hardware itself and better have it replace if still under warranty if not you need to go get a new one sorry about that router is dead already.

Can not connect to my wireless router


1. Choose your wireless equipment The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
  • Broadband Internet connection
  • Wireless router
  • A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter
A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2. Connect your wireless router Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

  • If you currently have your computer connected directly to your modem: Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN on the back of your router.
  • If you do not currently have a computer connected to the Internet: Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router) into your modem, and plug the other end of the network cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router.
  • If you currently have your computer connected to a router: Unplug the network cable connected to the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port from your current router, and plug this end of the cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router. Then, unplug any other network cables, and plug them into the available ports on your wireless router. You no longer need your original router, because your new wireless router replaces it.
  • 3. Configure your wireless router
  • Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.
    Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router.
    You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.
    As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufacturers.

    password

    Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things:
    1. Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using.
    2. Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it).
    3. Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.
    The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
    Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.
    4. Connect your computers to the wireless network If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.

The linkssys usb adapter does not connect automatically to the WLAn router. it always says "win xp manage the wlan" but this is not true


the problem may be caused by the installation of the usb adapter's WLAN software (WinXP already has a built-in WLAN). Ty uninstalling the adapter's WLAN monitor, unplug and replug the USB adapter to your computer and it will be installed automatically. Once installed, Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections >>Right click Wireless Network Connections and click View available wireless networks. Try manually connecting initially to the router and see if it will be automatic from then on.

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing


Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

Linksys wireless adapter not being recognized by 2wire wireless


1. uninstall the WLAN monitor from add/remove programs.
2. restart computer. it should say "found new hardware" (for the WMP54GS)
3. insert the installation CD for the WMP54G, but make sure that you do not install the WLAN monitor. just install the drivers for the card.
Then let windows control the wireless.

Cannot connect my wireless adapter to Belkin wireless router


Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?

Setup Guide


If it does we can probably search for more information.

Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?
Did you enable MAC address checking on your router?
