Question about Linksys WUSB100 Wireless Adapter

Open Question

Internet speed slows when using Linksys WUSB100 wireless

Desktop HP with Windows XP (sp3 and all updates), usb 2.0 connection

My internet speed when using wired ethernet is consistently about 2.8Mbps (using 2wire.com speedtest). With the Linksys WUSB100 wireless adapter, it is consistently 1.8Mbps.

I also have builtin wireless connection in my notebook PC (running Windows Vista 64b) sitting next to the desktop PC - it consistently runs at 2.8Mbps.

I have de-installed/re-installed drivers. I have tried installing software first, and I have tried installing the adapter first, letting it look for drivers.

SOURCE: Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G

laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.

The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.

Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.

SOURCE: Linksys wireless adapter not being recognized by 2wire wireless

1. uninstall the WLAN monitor from add/remove programs.
2. restart computer. it should say "found new hardware" (for the WMP54GS)
3. insert the installation CD for the WMP54G, but make sure that you do not install the WLAN monitor. just install the drivers for the card.
Then let windows control the wireless.

SOURCE: problem connecting linksys wusb54g wireless to internet.

Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.

Slow internet speed when connected to router


So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.Com before and after following these steps.

Ok, my computers internet is not working...Read and help me!


Wireless internet is basically a radio, and radio signals can be interfered with. Simply running a microwave can make your signal go out. Many wireless phones run on the same frequency as your computer, which can mess it up. In any case, wired is always better than wireless.

Can't get the d-link adapter to work on wireless windows xp comp desktop when the internet comes on it bumps me off


1. Might it be that a security configuration setting in you router is preventing you from connecting to the internet?
Check the WEP or WPA settings; the set type of network (B, G or both), MAC address filters, etc.)

2. Download the most updated driver for you adapter from D-Link support pages. The last service pack for Windows XP (SP3) turned some adapters (DLink models too ) unable to connect to internet. The driver update will solve the proble

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
