    I am also adding a desktop (with Windows XP) to a network using a Linksys WRT54G router, but I haven't purchased an adapter yet. Can you recommend a compatible adapter for this router?

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.

No. The same adapter should work. If it is USB try moving it to a different USB port. If it is internal then try reinstalling the CD that came with it.

My wireless has gone capoot.


Most desktop computers are not by default wifi capable (barring a few models that include an internal USB wifi adapter in the case.) If you have added wifi to the unit by installing an internal PCI-Card Wifi adapter or plugged in a USB Wifi adapter into one of your USB ports then that capability will be added. As far as a Keyboard command to activate the Wifi, that is usually dependent on the Computer and/or the brand and model of the adapter installed. What brand of Computer and model are you having problems with? If the Wifi was added after it was purchased, what brand and model of adapter are you using?

Desktop won't connect with printer connected to laptop


Make sure both computers can share files and can ping each other, if not, it's just a firewall issue. Try to disable your firewall first.

Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G


laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.

The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.

Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.

Wireless router


hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .
as far as how they work they are all plug and play install the cd software first then follow instructions carefully and set up is 10 minutes away good luck by for now

hello!

if you will connect the desktop hardwired or dierctly to the router, make sure that the ethernet adapter is properly installed and the ethernet cable is working.

if you will connect the desktop wirelessly, make sure that the wireless adapter is properly installed on the desktop and make sure that the wireless settings are properly configured.

Networking question


Ok, you have several options. Go to a website such as bestbuy.com. Type in linksys and look of wireless access points, wireless usb adapters or a wireless desktop adapter. I would go with the third one.
