Switch on your laptop's wireless adapter before running the roter's program. If the problem persists even after switching on the adapter, the appropriate services for the wireless network might not be started. Make sure that the supporting software for the adapter is installed and running.
And also try reinstalling the drivers for the wireless adapter.
Wireless networking is easier in Windows Xp SP2 than SP1.

Im trying to set up a wireless connection through my laptop with my cricket broadband connection,but every time i put the wpa2 passphrase in it says i have a bad connection,how do u turn off the security...


Hello, Every laptop that have seen usually has a way to view the available wireless networks that are around them, and sometimes they will say whether or not it is security enabled. I would use this program to try to gauge how your wireless system is doing, signal strength wise. Turning off your security won't affect your computer but it will allow anybody within it's range to get a signal for free to the internet and possibly your home network and computers including your files, so it really isn't a good idea to turn it off unless you do it only temporarily to allow yourself to troubleshoot this issue then turn it back on. WPA2 is the best security to use and WEP is the weakest. The strength can be increased by raising the router's antenna, putting the router up as high as it can go in the building, or by moving closer to it. I would try those first before turning off the security. If you insist on turning off the security, you will have to use the users manual either the one that came with it or go to the manufacturer's website to get a copy as there is a lot of ways to do this, and a lot of ways to screw it up too including shutting your self off of the network or internet and not get back on!
Good Luck! Rich L.

Cycle both, meaning turn both wireless radios off then on, which might mean unplug the router and reboot the laptop. Try again. If nothing, make sure the router is set to broadcast the SSID by going to 192.168.1.1 and using the web interface to the router. Check those other settings and make sure your wireless is enabled and all. Also, Vista likes to corrupt wireless settings, so if the connection is already saved, remove it from Vista's wireless list of preferred networks and start again from scratch.

You need to buy a separate wireless adapter. I recommend a Linsys Wireless G USB/ with speed boost adapter at this time.

I have a netgear w602 but no installation cd to install it on computer and im stuck lol


You really don't need to install anything on the computer for that router, it has it's own controls built in.
You need to be able to connect into it, to configure it.
So for example, have the router on, have your laptop on.
Look to see if your computer "finds" a wireless network (you'll get a info notice in the lower right corner).

One question I forgot to ask
Do you have a wireless network card in your computer?
The router is a transmission station, you need a wireless NIC to be able to connect to it.

Unable to connect through a N1 Wireless router with more than one user using a IPsec connection. Only one person can cannot and the other gets a timeout.


in order for the laptops to see each other and allow you to work one with the other a network has to be installed and a work group formed.

1. Choose Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
The wizard shows its splash screen.
2. Click Next.
The wizard asks you to type in a name for your network.
3. Type a name for the network.
The name of the network is used for the wireless router's SSID (Service Set Identifier), which the wireless box typically broadcasts to make it easy to connect. The SSID is the name that appears when you try to connect to a wireless network. Each wireless router has a default SSID: tsunami, wireless, and linksys are all common default SSIDs.
4. Unless you already have a network key that you absolutely must use, select the Automatically Assign a Network Key radio button.
5. If your wireless base station and all the wireless cards on your network support WPA (if you have 802.11g, they may or may not; with 802.11b, it's unlikely), check the Use WPA Encryption box.
There is a performance hit for using either WEP or WPA encryption. Your network will run slower — but your neighbor won't be able to look at your files. Fair trade, eh?
6. Click Next.
Behind the scenes, the wizard generates all the information it needs to set up a secure wireless network.
The wizard asks if it can use a "key drive" (USB flash drive) to set up the network.
7. Select the Use a USB Flash Drive radio button.
Select this button if you meet the following requirements:
• You have a key drive (USB flash drive) handy
• A free USB port is on every computer on your network
• All of the computers on your network are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later
• Your wireless router has a USB port and it understands WSNK (check the manual)
If you don't meet those requirements, then select the Set Up a Network Manually radio button. Then click Next.
• If you click the first button, the wizard takes you through the steps to transfer the settings to all the other computers on the network, as well as the wireless base station. Basically, you schlep the key drive to all the PCs, and they set themselves up.
• If your hardware isn't quite up to the **** Tracy stage yet, the wizard shows you its final instructions.
8. Click Print Network Settings.
The wizard doesn't actually print them. Instead, it opens Notepad and sticks the relevant settings in a new text file.
9. Print the text file and follow the instructions to transfer the settings to each of your wireless devices manually.
It isn't as bad as it looks. See the next section.
Making manual changes So you're stuck with entering wireless network security information by hand. Be of good cheer. The Wireless Network Setup Wizard (see the preceding section) does all the heavy lifting. If you're running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, it's pretty easy:
1. Enter the new settings in your wireless router or access point.
Unfortunately, each one is different. You may have to dig into the router's manual. Usually, once you get inside the router, making the changes is easy. The key you need to enter is the one that was generated by the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
2. Make sure you update/apply/save the changes to the wireless router before leaving.
Many routers require you to save the changes manually, so they'll be around if the electricity goes out.
3. Choose Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
You see that really confusing splash screen again.
4. Click Next.
The wizard asks for a network name.
5. Type the network name precisely the same way that it appears in the printout from the preceding section.
6. Select the Manually Assign a Network Key radio button and click Next.
The wizard asks you to type the key.
7. Click Next.
You end up at Step 7 in the preceding section, from which point you can print your settings or just close down the wizard.
8. Repeat Steps 3 through 8 on each computer in your wireless network.

I have a laptop im trying to set up wireless i have everything i need but dont know how to do it .i also have linksys wireless router as well as a chip that goes to the taptop with a wireless linksys can...


Well Betty can you tell me what type of laptop do you have? Is it fairly new. Some laptops already have wireless cards installed in them.
However on the PC not the laptop...... before hooking anything up insert the software CD from linksys. This will advise you when to hook it up and should also give you some very good pictures on how it should look.
Now provided this goes as simple as it sounds lets reboot that laptop and see if it does not see the wirless router you just set up. If it doesnt I can try and assist you with plan B.
The goal here is to stay away from the difficulties of alot of settings. Good Luck and I will be watching for your response.
I wont see this until tommorrow evening as I am trveling to some sites and wont land in my motel until evening.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
