My usb adapter (2wire 802.11g usb wireless adpter) is having problems.

My adapter gets speeds of about 54mps but it says it isnt connected to the wireless network. So I reinstalled it. When reinstalling it with sbc yahoo dsl I put in the correct WEP and serial number but then it does a test to connect and doesnt work. Any ideas?

You cant change the wep key on the upstairs pc unless you change it on the 2wire 1st. the pc wep key has to match whatever the 2wire has it set to. go to the 2wire router settings throught the downstairs pc that is working to be able to see what the wep key is set to, then when you get the key or set a new one enter that key into the upstairs pc.

First download the latest drivers from after installing the drivers just follow the instructional manual and it should be working fine without changing the wep key. if you still want to change the wep key of your network, you need to change it first on the router then configure the 2wire client card utility and update the new wep key.

You just go to network connection and select your network connection. Just right click to it and go to properties. Configure it which suits you best (Do it if you know about dialling rules and near by dialing environment ie if this support the high speed prefer high speed and it support low spped then do low spped as it optimized the network utilizations.) You can also use network utilization tools available in tune up utility, etc whichever availabel in market.

My connection through my 2wire pc port phoneline is extremely slow, the internet is very laggy, yet all the computers connected directly to the router through ethernet cables are very fast

This is because the adapter is ONLY 10Mbps you need a higher one 100Mbps or even 1000Mbps... That adapter is too old to be used on a high speed network, replace it with a faster one.

I no longer have the CD for this 2wire wireless adapter. What are my options to be able to get a connection?

that s the link to the drive you need. Since you cannot get a connection on your computer, you might need to use a friends computer to get the program. Then you can load the driver on a usb stick or burn it to a cd.

2wire 802.11 usb without 2wire gateway click on the adapter link for the driver and instructions. If you dont see the picture of your adapter, then click on the legacy link on the adapter page. After you install the software just use the icon on the lower right to connect to your wireless network.

Low connection speed

I understand that you are getting low wireless speed through the adapter. I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the adapter. If the issue persists, then please change the channel on the wireless router.

Hope this helps.

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.

I used this one:

This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.
