Question about Linksys Wireless-G WGA54G 802.11g/b (wap54ag) Wireless Gaming Adapter
I'm having trouble connecting my wireless gaming adapter to my 2wire router.
i used the set up cd and i connected the wireless gaming adapter to my 2wire router with an Ethernet cable and set it up to my router.
set up my ssid
then auto set up the ip address
and typed in my WEP key
after that it starts to config.
then its done and all 3 lights are on on the gaming adapter. power, ethernet, and wireless.
i disconnect it from my router and take it up stairs to my room and connect it to my ps2 and it run the game but it wont connect at all. all y lights are still on but it wont work.
i set it up to my friends next door linksys router and it works great. but his router is down and i cant connect.
can any please help me connect it to my own router.
Hi Shawn. Does yout PS2 connect when it is downstairs on the wireless? Reason I ask is wifi routers tend to transmit horizontally, and are very weak in vertical transmittions.
If you are connecting while you are own stairs, we can assume the WEP is not an issue.
WEP setting vary on different adapters. Some allow your to use 5 digits for your wep code, others require the full 10 digits. If you are using just 5, say 12345, try putting a 3 infront of each digit, i.e. 3132333435. If you are using all 10, on bought the adapters, this shouldn't be a issue.
Of course, if you can connect to while downstaris, this issue it mute.
You can also try changing channels. Channel 1 has more range than channel 8.
The last guess is that yoour router has less range than the Dlink.
See if any of those suggestions help, and let us know.
