Re: You are connected to access point but the internet...

Do you have a connection wizard that you can run on your computer? Linksys offers them for downloading at their website. Try that -
have you named your home network so your wireless connection can "find" it? You don't mention how your main computer is networked in. A wireless adapter for a notebook will need to have a Linksys connection wizard run on the laptop.

If you have a Linksys router connected to your main computer, it should already have the piece of software you need. Most likely, you'll need to put it on a flash drive and install it from that onto your laptop. the wizard helps also to diagnose the right settings.

If you want to post what you are using for your main network (linksys router?) and which operating systems you are using, that will help.

For example, in Vista, you'll need to enable the option for "network discovery" under your laptop's control panel/network and sharing center.

You also need to have certain settings on your main computer for the wireless to work - there are two main types of wireless connections - B and G. Most of today's routers and cards will do both, but if you have an older router, it might not be set up to handle the newer or combined types. They run on different frequencies, so your laptop might not be "reading" your router's frequency.Also, if you have other wireless/radio frequency equipment near your laptop, it can interfere with the signal being received right.

You also need to be sure that your firewall allows the linksys system to access your computer (allowed programs).

I can pick up a linksys access point, but it will not let me connect to the internet. I do not have the original set up disk.

Do you own the access point?
If not, are you authorized to use it?
Access Points can be configured to _only_ grant Internet access to _specific_ wireless adapters.
(Each wireless adapter has a unique 12-character code.) So, if your code is not on its "accept" list, you won't be able to connect.

Do you own the access point?
If so, after connecting/authenticating to it, start Internet Explorer, and access the web-server "inside" the access point. Click to select the 'WAN' settings, and confirm that the access point is getting an IP-address from the Internet.

Is your wireless network secured ? IF secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key / password.
if you are not sure about the wireless settings of the router then open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings.

No connection.

You are trying to establish a point-to-point link between two buildings. You need one access point and one bridge. Technically, it doesn't matter which one you put at which end. Traditionally, you put the AP where the network connection is, because it makes adding future remote locations easier.
500 yards should be a cakewalk for this model.

usually the problem like this was cause by unupdated firmware of either you wireless card or router. check the manufacturer of both devices and check the website if there is any updated firmware of both. you will also find instructions on how to upgrade the firmware on the manufacturer website.

an Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).


if you have no Router,  and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point.  you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box


Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support

Wireless-G LinkSys Model WAP54G random Internet Access

i think the problem is that when there are a number of pc's sharing the same wireless network the bandwith has to be shared and can be with upto 255 pc's. Connecting 255 computers to a single WiFi access point, while theoretically possible, is not recommended. Performance of such a network will be very poor. Install multiple access points instead to distribute the network load. By adding more access points to the network, effectively any number of computers can be supported (though the network becomes progressively more difficult to manage). On a home network, while dozens of computers and other devices may connect to the router, the performance of a shared Internet connection will quickly degrade as more computers access the Web simultaneously.
