Question about Linksys (WMP54GS) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I've simply turned on my computer and can no longer connect with my router. I've restarted both the router, modem, and computer. Checked the wireless cards status in the device manager, disabled and re-enabled it's use. I believe the problem is the mode, it seems to be searching for an adhoc network...can you help?
Here's how to remove the ad-hoc setting (I'm assuming you're running Windows XP):
1) Right-click on the wireless icon on your system tray (right end of taskbar) and choose "Open Network Connections,"
OR go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.
2) Right-click the wireless connection and choose Properties.
3) Select the Wireless Networks tab.
4) Under "preferred networks," select your network and click "Properties."
5) On the Association Tab, the bottom check-box corresponds to ad-hoc networks - uncheck it.
Hopefully this will make your adapter able to find your network. Please let me know if this doesn't work, or if I can be of any further assistance.
