Question about Computers & Internet

Wireless Connection I have a DLINK 624 wireless router and I'm trying to connect with a laptop using an SMC 2635W adapter. The card is working and can see the network SSID and when I select it, it gives me the first page of the card configuration utility. From there I can enter the security phrase and apply it but nothing happens. It just won't connect. Is there another parameter or something I need to set? There doesn't seem to be much I can configure.

Have you tried connecting using ethernet cable and observed everything is ok?, i mean you can connect to internet?. if so, try to disabled first the wireless security of the router, then try connecting again thru wireless, if you can succesfully connect, then it's on the security setting you missed to provide, like selecting either "open", "shared", or "automatic".

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual:

Check the plug of network wire going into PC - OR Replace the wire completely. Maybe blow out any dust from the socket. It may work if you just wiggle the plug in the socket.

If none of that changes anythig, then you may need to replace the network card in the pc.
If it's built in to the mother board, you can disable it in BIOS, and install a new one.

Wireless Connection

This is quite a long reply and may appear very technical - however, have a read through and see what you can do Answer.The following assums that your wireless connection is working and other PCs are able to connect:
There could be quite a lot of reasons you are not getting a connection to the wireless - some common issues
  1. 1) Remove the security from the router - and see if the device can connect with NO security
  2. 2) Firewall may be blocking
  3. 3) Remove profile
  4. 4) Check Device working in Device manager
  5. 5) Something else on the PC blocking
so quite a few things to check - so lets start in order
  1. 1) Log into the router and goto the wireless section and set to NO security.
  2. 2) Firewall:- The firewall my be blocking access - try to disable the firewall. Often programs like Norton, Mcafee etc, when the subscription runs out can cause issues and need to be uninstalled, to uninstal you may need to use the removal tool available on thier websites. One of the ways to test this, is to do a PING test. Press the "Windows key" {bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the "R key", now in the search box that appears - type "CMD", a black box will now appear on your screen, in that box type the following "ping" if you get 4 replies then you can access the internet and your firewall may well be blocking the access try disabling the firewall.
  3. 3) Remove wireless profiles
  4. 4)Have a look at device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc and see if you have any ? X or ! look under network adapters - click on the + and see if you have the adapter listed It will have a name something with wireless or 802.11 B/G/N included - check if it has any X or ! or ?
  5. 5) safemode:- Try to boot the PC into "safe mode with networking". To do this switch the PC on and now as it starts keep tapping the F8 key untill a menu appears, from that menu choose "safe mode with networking". If you can now connect to the internet,then there is something blocking your access on the PC when it starts normally - post back a comment and if that's the case, We can try doing a "clean boot" and try to identify the startup or process that is causing the issue
A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is xirrus, If you can copy the program onto the PC thats not working and install and run, this test if your adapter is working and also will display all the networks broadcasting in your area. Which will prove the hardware works.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network

It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?

Can't see any wireless networks in the area, but I know there are many

Can your other laptop see the laptop with the problem. First check that it is being given an IP address in your router and set to obtain IP address automatically. You may need to give the wireless card an ip address and DNS address yourself within the same range as the others; this way you know the addresses are correct. Just check that your problem laptop has the same network group name, right click my computer>properties>computer name and check the workgroup name is tha same as rest of your pc's. Keep trying you'll win in the end!
