I have a Linksys wireless router on my desktop computer and have another computer with an adapter. However, I get a reading that ''cannot find server''. I also have a laptop that operates with a ''Belkin''...

"cannot find server'' is usually a DNS error.

Solutions to the problem may be:

Statically assign the DNS servers in the adapters IPv4 properites. The adapter uses the router's gateway IP for its DNS server by default.

You may also want to statically assign the DNS servers in the router as well.

If you to to the command prompt on a computer that is able to browse and type the command "ipconfig /all" without the quotes, check for the DNS servers listed.

Youu can also find a list of public DNS servers here:

Does router wrt160n have both 2.5GHz and 5GHz

Hello Bill,
The problem sounds like you have the router set to WPA security. The WMP11 cards do not support this security standard, they only use WEP 64 bit and 128bit. If you attach to the router with your vista machine and go into the configuration settings and change the security level to WEP you should be able to get online.

USB adapter

You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".

You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.

If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.

If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.
