Lynksys wireless G router

I hooked up my wireless G router and sent it to my other computer which has a wireless-G usb adapter. The computer tells me that the computer is connected and the signal strength is excellent 11mbps, but will not connect with the internet. We took it to someone who reinstalled the driver and linked up with his computer just fine. It still didn't work when I hooked up here at home. Don't know what to do next.

    I have dsl and I just went through setup again with same results. I feel the problem is with the wireless G router

    I've done all the things that you have talked about. I even did a check over the phone with my dsl provider and he had me do the run, config., ping etc. Thant didn't help. I think I will take this router back and try a new one and see if that helps. If not I'll have to try something different.

    What type of Internet service are you using? DSL?? Cable?? Is the WAN port on your router properly connected to the DSL or Cable modem with CAT5 ethernet cable??

Pls check the wan port if its connected properly sir...try to ping a site.. pls click on run tab on the start button then type in "cmd" you will see a pop up window. then type in ping if you will get a replies that means your connection is good but if not try to check your wireless-g usb adapter if its working properly. if still its not working try to reset the router and try again with the set up.. check on the lights of the router if it is solidly lit for the wan and 1234 ports.. if it is solidly lit your good to go. go back again to the command prompt then type in ipconfig if youll see a valid ip address go to the set-up page of your router and try to configure again your router.

Double check your router settings to make sure your USB wireless adapter is permitted to use your wireless connection. You will probably find this under wireless security settings. I set up my wireless routers to only allow mac addresses of devices I specify, to prevent drive-by or neighbors using my connection.

Cannot Communicate from Computer to Computer

A connection from USB adapter directly to USB adapter may or may not be possible. Borrow a wireless router from someone and use it to test supporting connections to your two computers. I think you will find this a much easier way to proceed. Routers can be had for $40 or less. Shop around.

Good Luck

Internet connection

The only way to replace the network card is to replace the logic board in this unit, however if you are running 10.5, you can purchase an external USB to ethernet adapter at a local Apple retailer and you can hook the computer to the network through that adapter
