No association with access point

I have installation the linksys wireless notebook card into my laptop. Upon completion and following the online instructions provided by the installation cd, I received the message stated in the subject above. I even attempted to solve the problem by utilizing the secure easy setup push button method. I successful configured the card and chose my network, typed in the access phrase (code) and still I get the same message.

    I have the same problem: NO ASSOCIATION WITH ACCESS POINT.

    I have tried a number of things but none of any value. I wonder, though I am not sure, whether this problem arose after I downloaded Windows Service Pack 2. I am under the impression that this program of Microsoft does something to the Linksys adapter makeing it difficult for it to find an access point.



    I recall that there was a time after I had installed the Linksys WPC adapter that my laptop would connect with the cable internet automatically. Now however I have to go through the routine of running the Easy Setup push button every time I want to go into the internet with my laptop.



    Can anybody help me on this problem?

    Hi, I´m using version 3.0 of the adapter. I have a 2wire router (given to me by the broadband provider) and installed the card following all the instructions. All the messages were normal and succesful but when I try to connect it keeps teeling me " No asssociation with access point". I´m using windows xp and already unmarked the windows wireless configuration.

    What can I do?

Another thing to check, (especially if you have installed SP2 in the midst of this process of trying to get the Linksys WPC54G drivers  installed).  
In Device Manager, check under the "network adapters" category and see if there's any "other" things with a yellow question mark - I clicked one of those, had it search for the new driver, and after a few minutes it eventually installed a WPC54G driver and placed it in the "Network Adapters" category (I had already run the drivers install from Linksys, Broadcom, many times over - de-installing each time to try another version).
Funny thing about it, when I hit "update" or whatever on that yellow question mark icon - it had given me no clue whatsoever that it was a wireless adapter driver that it was updating.  
Hope this helps.

Inemcek: on your existing linksys router make the following changes....get into the "advanced wireless settings" change the beacon interval to 50, reduce the RTS and Fragmentation threshold by 40 each....also make sure that you are using channel 11. Please let mw know how you make out.

Try reseting the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Hi there I would tell you why:
1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time

Cannot get online with Wireless G WRT54G router. Can get online by pressing Cisco Systems button but only temporarily.


Do U see the router signal on the wireless network connection search?
Sometimes the linksys systems cd does not want to work on some pc's. try using the control panel - add/remove programs and uninstall all programs for the linksys. Then goto the control panel - system - hardware and uninstall the linksys card. Leave the actual card installed and reboot. After it detects your card use the linksys cd to load only the driver.
In the properties of the wireless connection, let windows manage it.
The above is based upon the factory defaults of the router. Any keys to access the router would have to be used on the pc.

Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other


its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.

No association with access point


hi

is the access point WEP enabled? or is it public? as long as you are able to detect the access point, try and edit your profile to which you can connect.

if it is a WEP enabled access point, you should have a passphrase key to access it.

if its public...
try and use this...
