Question about Linksys WUSB300N Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Connects to networks on its own

I've been having a strange problem with my adapter as of late. It will change networks with out me telling it to. When i tell it to connect back to a network it will go off connect to a completely different network then the one i told it. Right now it seems to work fine during most of the day then it will just start doing it's own thing. I've updated it to the newest software and still have the same problem. The adapter is only a half year old and hasn't been dropped or taken any damage any other way that i know of. Any help would be great.

Wi fi adapter all of the suddenly cant connect

There are several possibilities, but without some details I can only guess what's going on. I'm going to assume the problem is on a home network and you're using a current version of Windows in hopes of sending you some quick help, but if those are bad assumptions, please send details.

You can run Windows wireless diagnostics by clicking on the icon that looks like cell phone bars at the lower right hand corner of your screen. Next choose Open Network and Sharing Center, then Troubleshoot problems. That process may solve the problem or it may make a suggestion on your next step.

You might turn off your cable or DSL modem, and then turn it on again.

If you're using a laptop, you might check to see whether there's a wireless radio switch that has been accidentally turned off.

You might restart your PC.

I'm guessing that you know the WiFi hotspot you're connecting to hasn't changed its security settings or name. However, if someone else manages the WiFi network you're connecting to, ask that person if they've made changes.

These should address the most likely culprits. If not, please send info about your computer, your network, whether you can access the Internet outside of your web browser (e.g. can you get email in Outlook), and what you've tried so far.

A wonky PC is the pits. Best wishes on quickly getting it going again.

Wireless Connections keeps dropping and won't reconnect. The Adapter can see the network it simply won't connect.

Without knowing what wireless device/adapter is trying to connect and lacking the information regarding the router you're using, the following is the best I can do with the information you've provided. If this does not work, please repost your question the same as you have, but include the info for the adapter, PC, operating system, and router (or as much of this as you can track down).
If your adapter can see the network but will not connect, it is usually due to a wireless network key (wifi password) issue. Change your wireless router's network key encryption to something different. WEP is less secure than other encryption methods, however, it tends to be compatible with more adapters than any other method. If you're uncomfortable with using WEP (you may have no choice, but you'll have to mess around with it to see), then you could use standard WPA instead of WPA2.
While you're at it, please change the SSID(network name) to something else. You can even do something as simple as adding "1" to the end of it. The reason for this is because your wireless device will retain previous network security information for the original SSID and this will be easier than clearing all wireless network settings from each of your wireless devices.
Now that you have changed the wifi security settings in your router, you are now ready to try to connect to your "new" network. It's new because you changed the SSID. Search for networks and connect. It SHOULD ask you for the network key (or network password). If it does, PLEASE enter it exactly. Capitalization matters!
If this does not work, repeat the process. This time, choose another encryption method. Every other step should be exactly the same.
Again, if none of this works, re-post your question with as many details as possible (above) and I'll keep a look-out for your question. If this is helpful, please help me by leaving a great rating for this answer to your question. Thanks for using Fixya!

How do I connect my xbox 360 wirelessly to my DSl 2WIRE?

Yes you can. My neighbor is piggy backing off my gateway 2wire router from att. He doesn't have any lag except for late at night. Other than that it rocks. Just set up your security.

I cant get onlin

I have seen this kind of strange behavior when the adapter is bad. No network detection, or connect but no webpages would ever come up, weird problems. All cleared up by replacing the adapter with an identical one, so it was not because of any settings or software issues. A new adapter is probably needed.

My broadband wireless adapter isn't connecting

Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
