Question about Network & Wireless Adapters

1 Answer

Wireless Connection Hi, We have recently signed up to ADSL broadband, and with this we purchased a Belkin 4-port wireless modem/router. we have followed the instructions of the service provider to config the router, however when I go to pick up the wireless connection the computer does not seem to find any wireless connection available. My Laptop has a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter installed from when it was purchased. In conclusion I'm stumped. Thanks Steve

How can connect to boardband


Hi,

If you want to connect from broadband connection first you need the ADSL connection in you home or office and second "ADSL Router"

Configure the ADSL router and connect the PC through patch cable, Now you broadband is ready to use.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

I need internet on yy pc card


You need an ADSL Modem & a Broadband connection. You run a cable from the Ethernet connection to the Modem/Router, and that connects to the telephone line, and then onto the internet.

If you want to connect to the wireless network you can connect one of the 4 ports to the ADSL modem, this will allow the device to switch between the Wireless network and the wired network. You could also purchase an access points instead of the router but the result is the same, is just that you won't use the routing capability of your Wireless router.

How to set up network on belkin G+ wireless usb adapter


do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?

This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.

something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.

If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01

or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22

Belkin wireless G USB adaptor 802 11g


Correct installation of this cheap little piece of kit from Belkin might be the worst thing you ever do! If you find that Windows XP is freezing 10 times per day, just remove the wirelss adaptor and you will find that the problem disappears... The conclusion will be as obvious to you as to many other users.
