Best wireless router

My sister wants a wireless router for her laptop. She has dial-up internet service. I have a Linksys - B (802.11b) router to send her. Will this work? Is there a better solution?

Re: Best wireless router

She could use it to connect to a Local Area Network, but without plugging it into a Wide Area Network cable (ex. DSL, Cable, Fiber, etc.) she will not be able to connect to the internet..

In other words, NO, she cannot just fire that up and get internet access without a ISP Provider.

She still has to have some way out to the internet, and that is still her dial up connection..

I have an old laptop that has a linksys wireless-b notebook adapter and my new computer with a linksys router attached is a linksys dual-band wireless-n. I can not get the notebook to link to the router...

Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Wireless will not connect to internet after installing XP Service Pack 3. Router is a Linksys WRT54G2, adapter is a Linksys WMP11. Router is set to "mixed".

Try upgrading the firmware for your routher and the linksys WMP11. Also try setting router to 802.11g instead of mixed to see if it connects.

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter

Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

SMC7901BRA Modem + Router Cannot connect

The Linksys router can be communicated with by going to Start>Run>type '' and when the logon screen appears use 'linksys' for username and 'admin' for the password. There you can reset defaults, view status, configure all router functions, et al, including restore defaults. Pressing the little reset button has reset levels that vary with the amount of time it is pressed -basically discharging a capacitive charge. Remember that cable modems use DHCP whereas DSL uses PPPoE. ~Steve

Internet explorer won't open

when it says connected it means to the router, open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and tick never dial a connection, or if it's already greyed out it's ok.

Assuming you have run the wireless network connection wizard first to set up the connection, if not it's in network connections and select new wireless connection or set up a wireless network.

Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband

You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).
