Question about Linksys 2.4 GHz 802.11b Wireless - B Notebook Adapter (WPC11 v. 4) (LINKSYSWPC11V4)

1 Answer

I am borrowing my girlfriend's laptop with this card. It works on her home network, but whenever I attempt to connect to any other network, it doesn't work. It detects the wifi networks, but it never prompts me for a password, and refuses to connect. If I am in a free wifi area, it will again detect the wifi, but won't even bring up the usual start-up page necessary to connect. What am I doing wrong?

You can only connect to networks that are not locked. If they are locked you will get a request to enter a username and pass. There is no way around this with out hacking (illegal). You may also be to far if you are unable to connect.

Please, my laptop screen just start showing white whenever I on it


Your lcd screen is going bad and needs to be replaced. It could be the video card but most likely the lcd screen is going bad. Try connecting another monitor to the laptop to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the white screen then your video card is ok and your lcd screen is bad . If the Borrowed monitor displays the same white screen then your video card inside the computer is bad.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

The wireless card is configured for your D-Link at home.
You need to configure your laptop's wireless card for the wireless settings at work too (ie the SSID and encryption etc.). Contact the network manager at your work for the wireless configuration so you can configure the wireless card with these settings.
It maybe possible to setup different profiles on the laptop's wireless card, one for home and one for work so you can just click on the correct profile depending on your home or work location.
