Question about Dell 1450 (D1450U) Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Will not connect

I am trying to use the 1450 adapter on my home wireless network. I am using a linksys wireless router, old version and although I can get wireless connection, I cannot get network conectivity. It seems to be problem in the IP address area in that the linksys will not return the correct ip addresses to my computer. Is there a connectivity issue with this adapter

If the connection is correct, make sure that the tcp/ip settings on your pc is set to OBTAIN IP AUTOMATICALLY. There might be a STATIC ip set on your adapter.

Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

It sounds like the wireless radio had gone out in your router is out, time for a new router if wireless is a must.

Can you connect to the router with a cable? If so, then hang onto that old router. You, or a friend, can use it as a wired bridge to your home theater system, or to another room in the house that may need multiple wired connections. I use my old router to connect my xbox 360, blu-ray player, television, and satellite DVR box.

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?
