Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
I have a 2wire router which provides wireless access to my wife's G4 laptop. I have an old Win98 machine in the basement, with a Linksys USB Wireless-G Adapter. The Linksys application finds the 2wire router, but can not get to the internet.
How do I trouble shoot this? Do I need a 2wire driver in addition to the Linksys driver? Is there some way of logging into the router using a local IP via Internet Explorer? ex: 220.127.116.11 or something...?
try to uninstall/remove the old driver and reinstal the latest driver of your linksys usb adapter. you can download it from the linksys website.
check again if you can get a wireless connection from the router to your 98pc. if not try to change the wireless channel of the 2wire to channel 1 and configure the wireless security again using the linksys usb wireless utility
if you still cant get a connection try to manually assign this ip address on the 98pc then check connection afterward.
IP add: 192.168.0.5
dns: dns number of the 2wire router
if you still cant get a connection after this try to install the wireless usb adapter to a diff computer to further isolate the problem.

sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...
anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.
launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.
on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab
on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.
under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.
under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.
under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.
confirm the settings by clicking on yes.
note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.
i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?
please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?
