Hi,

You don't need to have a WiFi adapter for the desktop. It can be connected using a LAN cable from the PC's Ethernet port to one of the routers Ethernet port. AS long as the desktop is set to "Auto obtain IP add" then it should work straight out.

If the LinkSys WRT54G did not came with a setup CD/Wizard, then you would need to reset it since I can only assume that it has been tried/used elsewhere before and the settings/configuration may not match your ISP and/or your network configuration. Reset involves pressing a small recessed button at the rear of the unit for about 10 seconds or more.

Once the reset was done and your router can connect to your ISP and therefore your desktop to the Internet, the laptop would also follow suit as long as the network settings is likewise set to Auto obtain.....

To verify if you can connect to the router, on your desktop, open a browser and log on to your router using 192.168.1.1,

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Link the netgear wgr614v10 to linksys wireless adapter


First you will need to check the wireless settings of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router ? If not then connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router, check the wireless settings of the router.
Once you have all the wireless settings of the router then you can try to connect to the wireless network on your wireless computer.

Is there any other wireless computer in the network ?
Right now the connection is dropping on your computer . It might be the problem with the wireless adapter of the computer or the wireless router .
You will need to isolate the problem.

If you have any other wireless computer in the network and that computer is also facing the same problem then it must be the router problem. You can check the settings of the router . for this you will need to access the router set up.

If you have other wireless computer in the network and that is working properly then it must be adapter issue. Try to uninstall or reinstall the adapter or Update drivers.

If you do not have any other wireless computer then try any laptop in this wireless network just to isolate the problem.

The WPA key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless cards in the laptop and desktop needs to be configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop and desktop computer to communicate with the router.
You can view the encryption settings in the router's wireless settings or on the laptop's wireless card settings and then apply these encryption settings to the desktop's wireless card (ie. the SSID and the WPA encryption).

You will need to match the wireless settings of your router and the gaming adapter.
Who is the manufacturer of your router?
connect your computer to the router with the cable and open the set up page of the router. check the wireless settings of the router SSID, Channel, security settings.
now you gaming adapter and the Router IP address should be in the same range. Suppose if the router IP address is 192.168.x.y and the default IP address of the gaming adapter is 192.168.a.b., then the number x should be equal to a. If it is not then you will need to change the IP address of the gaming adapter so that x will be equal to a.
after that open the set up page of the gaming adapter and change the wireless settings.
power cycle the router and the gaming adapter and now it should work.

Xbox 360 adapter


there could be a problem with the adapter, a faulty connectionin the cable or something else, or it could be your router. The adapter only works with type A B & G routers. I know a few people who have N routers and it wont work with them. 1st check to see if your router is a typer A B or G then make sure that the wireless signal is set to a frequency that the receiver can find usually channel 6 or so. 2nd, try disconnecting the adapter rebooting the console, then reconnecting it with the power off. if all else fails, then it might be that it is a bad adapter. Also if you use a wireless encryption, make sure that you have the key entered in the wireless setting on your console, and try using a WEP key as it is easier for the adapter to read then WPA.

USB adapter


You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".

You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.

If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.

If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074

Hooking up my gaming router


There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at www.linksys.com/download

Wireless 3crusb10075 problem


Sounds as if your router may need to be set to enable wireless connection and enable DHCP, this alocates your wireless adapter an I.P Address automatically. If this is alraedy the case, check the properties of your adapter to see if it's set to recieve I.P address automatically. If still no joy find your routers I.P. address and DNS address (this is what you type in your web browser to set it up). If your router is 192.168.2.1 or similair, set your adapter at 192.168.2.2 and the same DNS address normally 255.255.255.0. Restart both pc and router and try again. Also make sure network sharing has been set up via the XP wizard.
