I have drivers for windows vista but they can not be installed on windows 7. I need install my router on windows 7


If you have the Windows Vista or Windows XP driver, try installing in Compatibility Mode. Here's a tutorial I've posted recently (click HERE.), but please select Windows Vista instead of Windows XP. There isn't problem even if you select Windows xp, but since it's windows vista driver, that should work perfectly.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Title: Setting-Up a Wired Computer to Obtain an IP Address Automatically Article ID: 4033
Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.
Checking if the Computer is Set to DHCP

Low or poor signal is mainly caused by the following major factors:

Going Around Physical Obstructions
Wireless networks are also susceptible to obstructions that may lead to low signal. Often, the signal gets reflected, refracted or absorbed by the obstruction.

Common obstructions are:

  • Cabinets
  • Mirrors
  • Glasses
  • Metal objects
  • Thick walls and ceilings


If you have any of these objects between your wireless adapter and access point, consider relocating your access point somewhere high to get around the obstruction.

Wrt54g linksys problem


are you trying to set up the router for the first time ?
OR the router was working before and you are trying to add a new windows 7 computer to the network ?

If you are trying to set up the router for the first time then you can do it manually without the CD also.

If your router is already working and you want to add the computer to the network then you just need to connect to the network

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

If this is what you're already using, go to their help page to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps.

WRT54G linksys router


Hi,
The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.

The Computer doesn't recognize the Router (And Yes. the wireless switch is turned on)


DON'T use the software.

Are you trying to connect by way of ethernet cable or wireless?

Either way you do it, you do NOT need that crap software. 90% of the time, that software interferes with everything. Up to AND INCLUDING preventing your system from connecting to the router.

Before you can get any help with this, you will need to give us more information about your setup.

NOTE: We CAN NOT POSSIBLY figure out all of the variables if you do not give them to us. So don't go marking my post as "Thanks for trying" just because your problem is not solved in the first post.

Instead, if you want answers, you're going to have to be more specific.

I see a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Is there a version number on there?

Example: WRT54G v3 (Mine.)

You're also going to have to tell us more about your computer. Is it Windows XP? Service Pack 1/2? Windows Vista? Linux even? (Give model numbers if it's a pre-built system from an OEM manufacturer such as HP, Dell, etc.)

Then there's the internet connection. Cable internet? DSL? Satellite? Give us MODEL NUMBERS of the equipment they have issued to you for your internet connection.

Then tell us how you have things connected. Wireless? Ethernet cable? What is connected to what?

See what I mean?

FULL details bring quicker resolution of your problem. I will be monitoring this post as you seem capable of providing this information to us. When I see more complete information, I will help you further from there.

Thanks. :)
