Re: wireless-wired based devices must be in the same lan
If you are connecting to the internet, your network must use an un-assigned sub-net. You should use 192.168.1.1 - 255 with a mask of 255.255.255.0. Your router, linksys, will defaut to this. You should use dynamic addressing on the computers you want to connect, unless there is a reason that you need to use static addressing. If you need to use static addressing, you need to configure your router to only use say 192.168.1.10 - 20 for dynamic addressing. then configure your PC's to use 192.168.1.11 & 12 or anything else outside of the dynamic addressing.
I suspect your router is set for dynamic addressing and the static address that you are trying to use is in the dynamic range and your router will not see you PC's.

Please see the Reset the Default Factory Setting please read it the Detail I have a WAP4410n wireless access point, I have reset it to factory default by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. I am able to ping its default ip 192.168.1.245 through its default ssid "ciscosb" if I configure my static ip was solved by connecting through the lan cable, and setting manually the ip to 192.168.1.0/24 network, and accessing 192.168.1.245 through web, the reason why the connecting through WiFi was working because the management web access through wireless is disabled by default
Do other wireless laptops connect to your wireless router, and give good speeds? Do you have many wireless networks, other than your own, that show up when you try to connect? It could be interference from other wireless networks in your vicinity.
Make sure that all driver are installed. Especially the wireless LAN driver. Go to control panel then click on system then click device manager. Look for the network adapter category. There should be no exclamation mark to any of the devices listed there. You can download all your computer drivers here. If everything are ok then all you need to do is to go to control panel. Click network connection. Look for icon named Wireless then click on it. Search your router and connect to it.
Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,
Then go to "scan for hardware changes",
This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).
After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.
It should connect like that.
(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)
As dragoness1 says, you don't need a LAN to connect. Right click wireless icon in system tray (bottom right of screen), select "show available Wireless networks". Select one and click connect. If they're not from your own Internet service, they may be protected by a password.
1. what is the model number of your adapter? 2. what is the operating system of your computer? 3. did you install the wireless adapter on your pc or is it a built in wireless adapter?
-- if you install another wireless adapter on your pc, possible that its the one causing the conflict between the two utility. I suggest to disable the other adapter before installing the other wireless adapter -- if the wireless adapter is a built in wireless adapter and you are using a windows xp computer, chances are that the built in utility and the xp wzc are the one causing the problem. you have to disable one of this utility to make your connection working -- the utility is sometimes located at your system. if you wish to use the utility you have to disable the wzx or the other way around.
