Cannot connect wireless

Hi I have an iBook G4 and a G54SL Mac USB Wireless Adapter that i want to hook up to my d-link 524 router. The adapter is showing that it is working, ie I get a signal, but when I try to go on the Internet I cannot get on at all. It is as if I am not hooked up to it. Any ideas how I can resolve this problem?
I also have a Mac G3 hooked up via ethernet cable to the same router. Is it a problem if one computer is "wired" and the other "wireless"?
Any advice is greatly appreciated

Re: Cannot connect wireless

The fact that wired works and wireless limits the number of issues on the wireless connection and would have been a first testing step eliminating the wireless configuration as an issue.


to determine the revision of your wireless router A, B, C, D, E and get the guide. This should allow you to access the configuration of the router to compare to the configuration of the USB wireless adapter.

If you need additional assistance I will need to know the revision number so I can get the same manual for reference.

I cannot find an online version of the mac adapter guide -- are you capable of configuring items for this device without detailed assistance as I will not have a reference manual? Can you open the configuration for the USB adapter and tell me what is displayed to help fill in the answers?

Please also answer the following to help me assist you (assuming you may actually need additional help)
Also did you get the router new or did it have a previous owner?

Did you configure the router in any way after receiving it?

Have you ever configured a router or network card before?

How can I connect the ps3 to a wireless router di-524?

First, you need to configure the wireless adapter inside the D-Link router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network.

Then, enter the SSID and the password on the PS3, to connect to your wireless network.

I have di-524 d-link wireless router, my router not giving me wireless connections

If you connect the computer to the router with the cable , does it work?
If yes then the wired connection is working.

What is the Operating system on the laptop or the wireless computer ?

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Mac ibook g4 connect to an existing wireless network?

Usual problems are making sure that you select the correct security options at both ends and then DHCP problems. I would disable DHCP on the mac and select your own IP address above the existing ones to start with

Can't connect to internet with router and wireless usb adapter

Did you check whether the USG adapter can work in "G" mode, read the manual of the usb adapter and check whether it can operate in "G" mode since your router is a wirelss "G" model the devices which detectes signals should also work in :g" mode, And most of the inbuilt adaters are viable with a/b/g/N type routers, so please check the manual and let me know

Di 524 through speedstream 5200: wireless connects but no browse

try re-installing the driver for your USB adapter or create a new wireless network name.

You could also try to download the latest driver for your USB adapter. uninstall the old driver before installing the latest driver for your USB adapter.

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet

sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?

Wireless access

Your iBook is compliant with any 802.11b/g gear. Just follow the instructions in the router or access point's manual for setting up. Usually, wireless routers and access points include their own proprietry software for the initial setup. This helps in locating the device on the network but it is not necessary and will probably not have a mac version for you. Every wireless AP and router I've seen has a platform independent web interface for configuration.
