Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)

Compaq Evo with wpc54g v.1 wireless adaptor

I've got an older n600c laptop running xp sp2. the wireles adaptor is recognized and pings the router (also a linksys) but will not or cannot connect regardless if i use the z config tool or the bundled software. the driver installed by windows is version 4.00. at least with this driver the signal l.e.d flickers indicating communication attempts. with the belkin driver v.3.10 only the power light is on.

the laptop is running a p4 with 384 megs of ram. any simple solution would be of great help. Thank You.

Hello!

-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Problem connecting wireless to a Netgear MR314


Login to router and change the wireless channel on which the router is transmitting wireles signals.

Pretty old router that you have. Ugrade your router and stay tension free with the newer routers as they work fine and have low downtime.

Multiport w200 wireless goes to blue_screen with belkin G+ router


http://www.fixya.com/support/t612983-blue_screen_hp_wlan_multiport_w200 seems to have the solution.

It says:

Rollback the W200 driver to version 1.00C. Subsequent drivers are incompatible with XP SP2.

Unfortunately, WPA support came in version 1.00E, so W200 + XpSp2 = no WPA support. :(



I removed my wirelss drivers and compaq wireless client software, then installed the older driver from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=hb-13082-1&lc=en&cc=fr&dlc=en&os=228&product=235687&lang=en which is sp23031. This seems to have worked. s.gif
