I had the same problem, the thing is that due to some legal issues, there isn't any compatibility with that card in linux, so, what i did was to sell my old card and bought a new one compatible with linux and windows.

How can i get my wifi working on 21005 easynote


Chances are unless you can find a compatible driver for your wireless card under Ubuntu it won't work.You may be able to install an external wireless card under Ubuntu and have wireless.You could have a faulty wireless card too but if it was working before you installed Ubuntu the driver is the problem

My problem was,my wireless connection is unsecure,how do i secure my wireless connection?


1) Open your Internet Explorer program or any other web browser.
2) In the Address Box at the top of the browser window, type http://192.168.1.1 and then click on Go, or press the Enter key on the keyboard. A window should appear in the center of the screen asking for your User Name and Password.
3) Leave the User Name box blank. Type admin in the Password box, then click on OK, or press the Enter key on the keyboard.
Note: To change the password from admin to a more secure password:
1) Click on the Administration tab when the Linksys Wireless Router Setup page appears.
2) Type the password you want in the Password:box next to Local Router Access.
3) Click on Save Settings.
4) Be sure you remember or write down this password and the encryption password in step #13 below.
4) The Linksys Wireless Router Setup page should appear.
5) Click on the Wireless tab.
6) Because some of your neighbors may also have Linksys Wireless Routers and not know how to change the SSID (the SSID is the name of your wireless network.), change your SSID from the default name, which is linksys, to something unique, such as johnsnet or myhomenet.
Caution: Do not use spaces or weird characters, such as $ % ^ & * #, in the SSID.
7) Change the Wireless Channel to Channel 1 - 2.412 GHz. (The second part of the channel is the frequency: 2.412 Gigahertz.) You can also use 11 - 2.462 GHz. Most people use Channel 6 because this is the default Channel, so you don't want to select Channel 6; use Channel 1 or 11 instead.
Tip: Unfortunately, cordless [landline] phones, Bluetooth devices and microwave ovens may use the same frequencies as your wireless networking equipment. If you suspect that these appliances are interfering with your wireless network, try experimenting with different channels.
8) Click on Save Settings.
9) Click on Continue.
10) Click on Wireless Security.
11) Under Security Mode, click on the Down Arrow and then select WPA-Personal, unless you have an older wireless network card in your laptop which can't useWPA, in which case, click on this for instructions on setting the Security Mode to WEP.
12) Under Encryption:or WPA Algorithms:, set this to TKIP.
13) Under WPA Shared Key, type in your desired password, which should be at least 8 characters long, but not contain any spaces or weird characters, such as $ % ^ & * #.
14) Click on the Save Settings button to save the settings.
15) Click on the Continue button.

Will not stay connected to wireless connection. even the tech guy at Staples cannot fix it. It will however stay connected with a wireless card.


I'm sure this is a silly question, but there are two things 'the staples tech guy' may not have checked:
1) A wireless card has two connections on it, for the antennae. Did you make sure those connections are attached, so the antenna are properly connected?
To access it, flip over the laptop, and unscrew the area covering the wireless card. There should be two little circles. One is called 'Aux', the other one says "Main"

2) Try booting from an Ubuntu disk, and see if it works there.
If it does, then you know the issue is the driver in windows, and not the wireless card itself.
To do that, go to ubuntu.com and burn a disk. Then turn on the computer with the CD inside of it. It should turn on ubuntu from the CD instead of from windows.
If it works there, you know the issue is windows. If it continues to drop connections, then the issue is the wireless card.

Good luck with it.

Please follow this steps carefully

Turn on your internal wireless card?
If your wireless card is built in to your computer, there may be a switch on computer that turns the card off and on. When new from the store, these switches are often in the "off" position. They can also accidentally get switched off during use. Find the switch (often near a symbol that looks like a microphone or radio tower emitting radio signals), and turn it on. The card should now find wireless networks in the area and connect.
.

Find the scrldcolville network?
If your wireless device is properly installed, your computer should automatically start scanning for networks in the area and will inform you that there are wireless networks present. If not, you can scan for networks in the area manually.
*To bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu, go to the Start Menu (in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, choose "Settings," then chose "Network Connections," and finally, choose "Wireless Network Connection." Clicking on this option in the menu should bring up a window. In the upper left hand corner of the window under the heading of "Network Tasks" there should be an option that says "Refresh Network List." Click on this option to search for wireless connections. Choose scrldcolville, hit the "Connect" button in the lower right hand corner and enter the passkey to connect.

Enter the passkey correctly?
If the passkey is entered incorrectly, the computer will appear to connect to the internet, but will not actually connect. If you think you may have entered the passkey incorrectly, disconnect from the scrldcolville network (see steps above in #5) and then reconnect. Often, as you manually reconnect to the network, the computer will remember the passkey and a small window will pop up, showing the password as a line of dots. Re-enter the passkey correctly before connecting.
(#6, cont.): Sometimes, your computer will not allow you the option of re-entering the passkey when you reconnect to the network. If this happens, bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu. Click on the "Change advanced settings" option under the "Related Tasks" heading. Another window saying "Wireless Network Connection Properties" should pop up. Click on the "Wireless Networks" tab at the top of the window. Under the "Preferred Networks" heading, there is a box that lists all wireless connections your computer has ever used. Click on the scrldcolville network to select it. Now hit the "Remove" button just below the box, then hit the "Ok" button. This will make your computer forget the scrldcolville network and the bad passkey. Bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu again and connect to scrldcolville .Be sure to enter the passkey correctly.

Allow your computer to obtain an IP address automatically?
Be sure that your computer is set to obtain IP addresses automatically and that it does not have one assigned manually. To do this, bring up the Wireless Networks Connections menu .Click on the "Properties" button. Here, you will see a list under the heading "This connection uses the following items." Scroll down the list until you see an item named "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)." Select this item and hit the "Properties" button just below the list. This will bring up a new window. In order to connect with the library's wireless device, you must have the option "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" selected (ditto for the DNS server address). If you are set with a manual IP address, you can click the button to obtain your IP address automatically (ditto for the DNS server address.) Be aware that this changes how your computer interacts with other networks. If you need a static IP address on other networks, you may have to reset your IP address again later. However, your computer cannot connect to the library's wireless network unless it obtains its IP address automatically from the library's wireless device.
Make the Windows wireless configuration your default configuration?
In many computers, Windows acts as the default wireless network configuration program. However, if you have an external wireless card, or if your computer has a secondary program enabling it to connect to the wireless network, you may discover Windows will not recognize your wireless connection program and visa versa. Sometimes, if you have a non-Windows program that runs your wireless card (for example, a Linksys driver for an external Linksys wireless card), the non-Windows program will connect to the wireless device, but Windows will not recognize that this secondary program has connected. You will need to allow Windows to control the wireless configuration in order for your computer to fully recognize the wireless connection. On way to solve this problem is to tell the secondary program to "stand down," as it were.
On some computers, an icon for your secondary wireless program will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the taskbar on your desktop. You can click on this icon to open the program options. Certain programs will give you the option to switch to Windows as the default manager of your wireless connection. This will allow you to use the Windows Wireless Network Connections menu to make changes to your wireless connection.

Wont connect to my wireless routerits a thinkpad 2658 with a built in wireless connector I have linksys router. 2.4 ghz wireless My other computers in the house can connect just fine


does it see the router?

does it try to connect and ask for the passphrase? It maybe it doesn't like the encryption. you may have to set the router to something simpler like 64bit wep

check what channel the router is on and what channel the wireless card is set to.

The computer is not recognizing the Linksys wireless card. When the card gets plugged in, it lights up like usual, but now the computer is not recognizing it at all. It used to appear in the bottom right...


look out for the driver of the wireless card. check the system configuration were you have all installed hardwares and see if you can find thr card there. if it is not there, then you may have to get the driver cd and re install it. other wise uninstall the driver and re install it again. but first, go to network connections and see if it is there or if it has been disabled. if it is disabled, enable it and you will be fine

Need instructions how to install wireless card


If you are installing an external wireless card, there should be a set of instructions that came with the card. Those should be your guidelines.
If you got one from a friend/neighbor, follow these steps:
1) Insert the card into the PCMIA slot 2) Let the computer recognize there is a new hardware.
3) download the driver from the cd, or go to its manufacturer's website to download the driver for the wireless card. If it is Linksys, go to linksys.com, belkin, belkin.com, etc.
After that, the card and windows should automatically detect your network settings, and you can enjoy the internet from there

Dell D600 - Linksys wireless router/adapter


Seems there is a problem with the Linksys since there is not any lights coming on. Did you plug it into a switched outlet in the wall? Does it work if you plug the Linksys into an outlet in another room?
If you can get it to light up, the way you will access it is through your web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and a login in screen should pop up.
