Replaced Linksys Wireless-B 2.4GHz 807.11b Router and Wireless B 2.4GHz 802.11b Wireless-B Notebook Adapter with Linksys-N Ultra Range Plus Wireless-N Gigabit Router, and Wireless N Ultra Range plus Dual Band Wireless N Notebook Adapter. Old router and notebook adapter worked fine. Just wanted faster and stronger connections. Thus the new purchase. Followed installation Disc(s)instructions to the letter. New Router works, can access Internet Connections from Desk Top PC. Unable to access network from Laptop. Get info stating that we have successfully connected to the access point. Adapter is active. When we try to access the internet we are unable to connect. Has the installation disc failed to assign an IP address? One icon on bottom of screen states wireless connection excellent, speed 130 mpbs, acquiring network address. Another icon states channel 1, signal 93%. What can we do to use our wireless connection for our laptop? We use Comcast for internet, phone and digital cable. Thanks for your assistance

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Cant find a strong enough connection


You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


    Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

    So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

    *I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

    - Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

    No connection to desktop, but great connection to laptop???


    Hi Lindsay,

    The very first thing that you need to do is to personalize the wireless settings of your ultra range plus router. Since your laptop is wired directlty to the router and is working properly, you can access the router's GUI to personalize the wireless settings. Open internet explorer on the working computer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar, you will be prompted to enter a username and password, by default there is no username and the password is "admin" if you have setup a password using the setup cd then use that one.
    Now your inside the setup page of your wireless router, look for the tab the say's Wireless and below you will find four sub menu namely; Basic Wireless Settings, Wireless Security, Wireless Mac Address and Advance Wireless Settings.
    Under Basic wireless settings change the Wireless Network Name(SSID) to something you prefer(this is a must).
    For the Radio Band, set to Wide 40Mhz. Wide Channel(9), Standard Channel(11) now click on "Save Settings".
    Now got to Wireless Security and for the Mode choose(WPA Personal/PSK Personal) Enter a 8 or more digit password under passphrase and click "Save Settings".

    Now your done setting up your wireless router it's now time to connect your desktop wirelessly.

    If your using a linksys wireless usb network adapter more or less you have also installed the WLAN Uiltility but personally I use the built in WLAN of XP and Vista.

    Using the linksys WLAN Utility for to the Profiles tab and highlight default.
    Click Edit and it will provide a list of available network(SSID) that your computer detects.
    Select the name(SSID) that you provided the router earlier and click connect.
    It will not prompt you to enter the WPA Key also known as passphrase(remember the 8 or more digit password) then click Connect to the Network.

    You should now have a valid internet connection wirelessly on your desktop.

    Oh and for your 2nd question the answer is No, since you already purchased and installed a wireless usb network adapter for the desktop computer you don't need to purchase a long ethernet cable or move the desktop to where the route is.


    Hope this will help you get connected.

    Regards
