Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b

Reboot necessary to find ISP server

I have a Dell D510 with 2200BG connecting to a linksys WRT54GS router. Typically I just click out of my browser and close the laptop. When I open it again later for use, the computer makes the wireless network connection, but the browser cannot find/connect to the ISP server (most of the time) until I restart the computer. This is annoying. Any ideas as to what might cause this?

Re: Reboot necessary to find ISP server

2200BG is a very old Intel wireless card. Its driver had a lot of issues that were fixed over the years. Try the latest driver from Intel site: (make sure to choose correct OS).

How do i resolve DNS server issues

typically your router should pick that up automagically from your ISP. If the power failure reset your router to factory (unlikely) you will need to login to it and reset those settings. from a computer connected to that router run a dos console (type cmd in win 7 or 8 start menu or xp run menu) then run ipconfig, write down the gateway address and use internet explorer to browse to that address (type the address in the address bar). login to the router and look for the ISP settings and such. your ISP should be able to help with those settings. that failing use (google) as a DNS server in your computer IP configuration.

Fitted a Linksys-g 2.4 ghz pci adapter to my kids pc, take make their PC wireless, installed the correct drivers after researching what these were on the internet and all ok. Changed ISP and no longer...

If your modem(the device given by your ISP) connected the linksys router on WAN port just power down all devices and power on modem and make sure all lights are on and then power on linksys router. This should fix most problems. If no luck connect your computer to modem directly and check if you are able to log on to internet! If your modem is not working then your ISP is the best option to call!

I have a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and a Cisco/Linksys WRT54GS Router. The signal is extremely poor even though the router is only 10 feet away. It does not appear to be an interference issue.

You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.

How can I install my linksys 2.4 ghz adapter without its disc?

Router setup is not a rocket science !
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I have a hp 510 laptop that won't connect to the wireless router. It gives this error "windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range" but other laptops around...

Have you try to check the IP ADDRESS of your laptop? Your laptop must have a unique IP address or it must have the same default gateway with your ISP provider or the router. see example below,


preffered DNS server:

note: is the IP ADDRESS of your internet or ROUTER that is given from your ISP that they've configured.

try to check the other laptops that was able to connect, you can follow it.

How do i get my dns numbers from my isp provider,and what is a isp provider.

Best bet is to open up your browser and type in
this will give you your ip address from your isp provider (Internet Service Provider)
If You need some DNS numbers (Domain Name Server), I use open DNS. they are pretty good at keeping out dodgy or rogue sites. Web sites have actual numbers for their address, not names. When you type in, the computer goes to the DNS server to look up the name and get the number (IP address) just like looking up a phone book.
If you choose to use Open DNS as the look up server. use these numbers in your settings.
If you need to put in a gateway (like a front door to go out to the net) you will need to go into your router or modem settings to find this number, Or just call your ISP to get the information. You will need your email username & password before you ring
Good Luck

I'm unable to connect to the internet using my linksys wireless-g pci adapter to a Netgear router. It lists the router in the wireless network range, but cannot connect to it. Suggestions?

Go into the network settings through the browser. Go the where you change the "Channel" the router is transmitting with and change that to channel 6, instead of automatic. If you can access to router but not the internet, go to internet options through the browser and go to the connection tab and uncheck the box that deals with proxy server. That box should be unchecked and the box for automatically detect settings should be checked.

How can i connect to enternet f i have a linksys wireless g notebook adapter with model no. WPC54g ver. 2


this is a connector to the laptop and now you'll need a source...

a source can be a service provider with wireless connection or a free hotspots or

a home based wired internet connection with wireless router

if you have a wireless router then you may have to call the ISP for the DNS server settings if any required but for others i think the auto IP configuration settings should work fine

pls rate if this was any help

Wireless Adaptor Issue

First make sure that your wireless router is set to broadcast (or if you prefer not to broadcast) your SSID (your wireless network name) or that your laptop wireless network connection properties is set-up to "Connect even if this network is not broadcasting".

To check this go to:

Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections>
Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties>
On the Properties box select "Wireless Network" tab >
Go to "Preferred networks" then highlight your SSID (network name)
Click "properties" button check "connect even if this network is not broadcasting". (while youre here check that your "Wireless network key" confgurations are correct).

Make sure that you are also set-up to "Obtain an IP Address automatically " and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

To check:

Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections>
Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties>
Select "General" and under the heading "This connection uses the following items">
Highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then click "Properties" button
