Re: usb

1.1 is the older usb connection. 2.0 is faster and is found all all new laptops and some older laptops and desktops. 2.0 just basically is a faster usb port, and can read more devices compared to the 1.1. you can still use the 1.1 usb port like a 2.0 port but like I said it wont always read or just will read slower. 2.0 is better. You could also find 2.0 usb HUBs that you can plug in to the 2.0 port and have extra ports depending on the HUB, if you choose not to use the 1.1 or 1.0.

Is hp pavillion 533c wifi ready

Nope. Most desktops are not equipped with wifi adapter. If you do not have a plan to buy a newer computer, you have to think about investing a few thing. If my calculations are right could cost you round 30$ to 40$.
1. USB wifi adapter 15$25199670-hteicwtviizs0mofaamifrgr-5-0.png
2. USB extension cord (3 meters to 7 meters). This you will need to find good signal. 5$ to 10$25199670-hteicwtviizs0mofaamifrgr-5-1.jpg

3. If you don't have a USB port (which I don't see in the specs.), you need to buy pci USB card.

Caution to ask for "PCI USB expansion card".
Good luck, hope this helps.

The model number is located either on the bottom of the right corner of the screen and on the label on the bottom of the laptop and the location and number of USB ports vary with different models.
The USB port is a connector/port that is 12x5 mm in size, some model thinkpad have onlt one USB port and some have 2 USB ports.
The USB ports are usually located at the back or at the sides of the laptop.

The T30 model has 2 USB ports at the back of the laptop located between the LAN and PS2 connectors.
The T40 model has 2 USB ports located at the left side of the laptop.
The A31p model has 2 USB ports located at the back left hand corner of the laptop.
The R32 model has 2 USB ports, one is located at the back left hand corner and the other is located on the left hand side of the laptop.

It sounds like the motherboard is causing the usb ports to malfunction by allowing power surges into the power input to the ports.You maybe should try a powered usb hub to power your hardware or you may face motherboard replacement

This usb device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi speed usb 2.0 port. I have an hp pivilion dv 6000, and according to the specs, I have usb 2.0, but I get this message every time I plug my flash...

This is just an error message. Yes, your HP Pavillion has USB 2.0, but there's a possibility that your USB flash drive has USB 1.1 specs.

If the flash drive has USB 1.1 specs, you would still get the same message. Again, this is just a message because USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with USB 1.1.

Have a great day!

I have a Western Digital Passport that works fine

Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA. If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.

Trouble creating wireless access point from D-Link DI-514 router

You should be able to plug the D-Link into any of the Linksys wired ports (not the Uplink port) and tell the D-Link to get an IP address from the Linksys router (as long as the Linksys router has DHCP turned on). Verify that both boxes are on the same network (192.168...) and don't have the same IP address. What happens when you do this? Can you get to the Linksys & D-Link from a wired workstation?
