I've just bought a SMC7904WBRA-N Wireless router with a SMCWUSBS-N2 Wireless adaptor. It's probably obvious to you but... I want my pc to have a wirelss connection but can I install the adaptor first and use the wirless connection to install the modem, or do I have to use the ethernet connection to install the modem first then install the adaptor? Regards

Best results would be to install everything from a HARD wire connection. Wireless, can drop bits of data depending on interference. I would definately use the ethernet to install everything and then try the wireless.

This is a wireless adaptor not a router.

Check out the internet connection by directly wiring into the LAN port of the router to the PC.

You will probably find the fault there and have to consult your ISP.

If it is the adaptor, check you have the correct driver software and the distance between the computer and the router.

Cannot connect to Wireless with my Linksys WRT120N Router.


If you have 2 devices not be able to connect to it suddenly, then it is probably the router that changed, as opposed to it being the 2 devices changing at the same time. Sometimes wireless routers just go bad like that.Try a factory reset, and then set the appropriate settings back to where you need them. If that doesn't help, you likely need a new one.

What is network adapter mean


A network adaptor is an interface device that allows your PC to communicate with other computers and the internet. There are wireless and wired adaptors.

Wireless adaptors usually connect your PC to the network through a wireless router and modem. Wired adaptors (also known as ethernet adaptors) connect your PC to another computer, a router or a modem using a cable.

I don't have wireless network on acer aspire4715Z


The Aspire 4715 comes with Wireless OPTIONAL. Your system obviously wasn't bought with a pre-installed wirelss card. If you want to go wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card/adaptor seperately.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.

Wireless set-up


No, there shouldn't be any other problems associated with it. What kind of computer are you trying to connect? How old is the operating system not to have an integrated 10/100 mbps ethernet port on the motherboard?
