Make sure the wireless card is actually connected, turned on, and you are using a router that transmits to correct signal. If your router uses Type N and your computer uses G, they will not talk to each other. Make sure you have the correct settings in the computer are correct for your network and you have the correct security key set in the computer if your using WEP or WPA security on your network. If all else fails, you can try uninstalling the wireless adapter through Device manager and rebooting and letting it re-install.

Hello,


Does the stick see any other wireless networks? Can you try creating an Ad-Hoc network from your other laptop to this one through the USB stick? If the answer to either of these two questions then the stick is working fine.

I would check to make sure your router is not using solely a N network type because the USB stick will not support it.

If you are using a duel band router and you are currently using the 5ghz network then the USB stick will not detect this either.

Lastly if your network is not being broadcast, your laptop may connect to the network but your USB stick will not be able to locate the network.

You can also try power cycling the router (unplug for 30 seconds) and then search for networks again.

Thanks,

Pat

I can not get my wireless adapter to work on my laptop


First you need to connect the wireless router to your desktop computer through an RJ45 Cable and setup a new wireless network. to do this you go to control panal you'll find (Wireless Network Setup icon) click on it and go through the process, when you get to "network key" select automatically assign a network key then select setup my network manually and next, then finish. once you do that, now you have a wireless network. connect the wireless usb dongle to the laptop and download necessary drivers for it once it shows on the little icons on the bottom right of the screen right click on it and it should have an option to enable the it. if not, then the dongle has the wrong driver installed or its faulty. once its enabled, go to my network places and choose wireless network and click search for wireless networks, you should find your Router's network, select it and click connect and that should be all.

let me know if you need more help and try to give me error messages and steps you did before, so i can help you. good luck !!!

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?

Netgear wireless adapter


When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
