    uh, that wasnt the solution to the question though,did you not read the description? Illl rephrase some of my description. All wires hooked up properly. Nic card cant be bad cause it works when connecting directly to router. However, i need to make it work using the setup described above.

First, check your cable. loose cable connection often lead the cause of that error. second. check the lan card of your linux pc. If your pc is a desktop type pc, try to replace the lan card and . Make sure that the lan card is detected by your system. try to connect on the internet again.

I used to have a linksys router but now have a Apple Time Machine. When I power up my WGA54G all i get is the power light. When I connect my WGA54G to the Time Machine, only the ethernet and power are lit....


Well, I'm not quite sure what your asking, exactly, but I'll try,

What are you wanting to connect the 'WGA to?

--"I used to have a linksys router but now have a Apple Time Machine."--
The Apple "Time Machine" is the backup "software" that controls the "Time CAPSULE'S" Hard Drive so I'll take it you mean the Time Capsule. The Time Capsule is already wireless.

The Time Capsule is just a wireless router with a Hard Drive in it. You should have set the Time Capsule up the same way you did the Linksys router. The Time Machine software on your computer can now access the Hard Drive for backup purposes.

"Time Capsule" connects to the '"WGA" wirelessly
'"WGA" is connected to a"Game system" (or network ready non-wireless product) via the Ethernet cable.

-"When I connect my WGA54G to the Time Machine,"-
OK,,,,,,, After looking at the manual on-line I think I know what happened, I believe the Manual is wrong! The "NOTE" mentioned to hook it to the Router first but how the heck are you suppose to access it from there? You CAN'T!
I think they had a "Brain Fade" and meant to hook it to the computer.

Hook the 'WGA to the Mac Book Pro and you should be able to access it now. You might want to make sure the MBP's Network connection LOCATION is set to AUTO to make sure it connects OK.

Make sure the switch on the side of the 'WGA is set to - infra- and not -ad-hoc-.

Hook an Ethernet cable to the computer then hook the other end to the 'WGA then plug the power cord into the WGA to turn it on and then try the Ip # it said to use in a web browser. If it then shows the log-in screen then enter them in like the manual said.

According to the manual if you can't access the 'WGA via the IP #192.168.1.250 then it some how got changed and you will have to reset it like the manual say's.

I hope I understood you OK, Good luck....

The power of my Linksys Wireless-G Game Adapter [ WGA54G ], isn;t coming on! I was wondering if there is a switch to turn it on!


With Linksys game adapter there's no power switch on it when you plug it to a power outlet if adapter is working the light should come on.

You can follow these troubleshooting to determine if adapter is really bad or something else.

Make sure that the power adapter that you are using came with the wireless gaming adapter.
Power adapter is connected properly to the back of the adapter and the electrical outlet.
Electrical outlet is preferably a surge protector.
Try another electrical outlet.
Unplug and replug the power adapter.
Hold the reset button for a minute, while the adapter is connected to the electrical outlet.
If there is still no power light then it is possible that the adapter is defective, and have it replace if still under warranty.

I have a acer laptop and lost wireless connection, please help.


Hi Blackett..

First, we need to identify the problem, it can be either with your laptop or with your Wireless router or with your Internet service provider.

so, first Step 1. please check whether you have "switched ON" the wireless on your acer laptop or not.(there may be a On /OFF switch on the laptop itself)
Step2. check weather you are able to connect to internet with wires or not?
(which means that you need to bypass your wireless router and directly connect the cable to your acer laptop)
If you are able to connect to internet through wires but not wirelessly then follow the rest of the steps..
Step 3. check whether your wireless is connected in the correct fashion or not... for that view the 2 videos which i have attached in this solution.
Step4. if the above steps do not work then it could be that your laptop or it's driver configuration are not OK.
you can then insert the "DRIVER" disk which came with your laptop and install the wireless driver again.

Here are the Videos....






If still issue is unresolved then please ask me again, i'll be ready to help.

Good Luck ;-)

Computer found router before why doesn't it now?


Download Network Magic (no need to buy, free one will work) once installed look at your network map, you should see your router click on it and note the IP address. Type this address into your browser.
