Try to remove the preferred networks on your Presario then try connecting again. If you have wireless security enabled on your router, you have to enter that. Make sure that the settings on your router is the same as your wireless adapter so that they can synchronize.

If you have difficulty with that, just ask me and I'll answer as soon as I can.

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.


Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

My Wireless-G Notebook Adapter will not connect to the Internet


If you go to the control panel in the start menu, check the network connections. It may be a LAN connection or another wireless connection that is not connected. You can disable them by right clicking on them. If you are able to get on the internet then you are ok. Let me know. Please give good rating...

Internet dose not work


This model Dell laptop used a PCMCia card as a network adapter, which may or may not be installed in the slots on the side of the laptop. If one is installed you may need the dongle (an adapter that plugs into the card and ends in a standard network jack)

an example of several types can be found at http://tekgems.com/Products/3comdongle.htm

Linksys WRT54gs router not seen by Mac


The firmware from Linksys doesn't work. Don't waste your time. Maybe the following freeware from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm could help. "LSP-Fix" is a utility to repair a loss of Internet access by repairing the LSP chain by removing the entries left behind when LSP software is removed or altered by malware or spyware remover. Sometimes ZoneAlarm does the damage as well when blocking intruders. Hope it works for you.

Problem connecting linksys wusb54g wireless to internet.


Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.
