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.

Re: lynksys wireless G router

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.

I would try to stay with the cisco/lynksys brand if money is available for it.

Just be sure of what speed of router that you have prior to purchasing anything. It is a waste of money to purchase a better card than you have router. Examples are G, N150, N300.

If you have a N300 router and card you will be very pleased.

We have a Netgear wgr 614 Router to supply a signal to our computer . As we have a large old house we need a booster to get the signal upstairs and we were provided with a Netgear usb adapter,which worked...

well unless ur house is 300 ft long or tall u shouldnt need a booster the wireless range of those routers are excellent

the usb adapter isnt a signal booster its a wireless device that receives/transmits the signal to and from the router

did u install the drivers for the usb device does it show up in ur network connections

We have a lynksys router. It is 2 years old.

upgrade the router to the latest version of firmware and reconfigure the same.

Also remove the existing saved connections from ur computer and then readd the new connections after reconfiguration of the router.

Wireless not getting to my notebook

I have had the same happen on my laptop, some computers don't have a wireless network card in them so you need to buy one. All you need to buy is a Wireless USB Adapter. They are around (but no higher than) $50.00. Just buy a "D Link Wireless G USB Adapter DWA-110" For $50.00.

3800HGV-B and LinkSys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter

Because the linksys is talking about SecureEasySetup which most lynksys routers use. The 2wire 3800HGV-B button is not a SecureEasySetup button.

Lynksys WRT300N Wireless Router and using two or three printers on the network

Is the HP working on any machine? You can connect it to any one of the machines and share it.
Now you just find it on the network.

You can purchase a USB to parallel adapter for about $25-35 if none of your PC's have parallel ports.

I would imagine that HP still maintains PCL drivers that will be compatible with 2000/XP. Good luck on the Vista :-)

Cannot connect wireless

the fact that wired works and wireless limits the number of issues on the wireless connection and would have been a first testing step eliminating the wireless configuration as an issue.


to determine the revision of your wireless router A, B, C, D, E and get the guide. This should allow you to access the configuration of the router to compare to the configuration of the USB wireless adapter.

If you need additional assistance I will need to know the revision number so I can get the same manual for reference.

I cannot find an online version of the mac adapter guide -- are you capable of configuring items for this device without detailed assistance as I will not have a reference manual? Can you open the configuration for the USB adapter and tell me what is displayed to help fill in the answers?

Please also answer the following to help me assist you (assuming you may actually need additional help)
Also did you get the router new or did it have a previous owner?

Did you configure the router in any way after receiving it?

Have you ever configured a router or network card before?

I cannot link my router and stay plugged in to DLS

Linksys has a software program at their website called Easylink Advisor. Have you installed it yet? I had to and it has helped keep all of our computers online and networked. All desktops and laptops in the house stay connected share files and one printer.
