Question about Belkin Basic Wireless N150 USB Adapter

1 Answer

I just bought a Belkin - Basic N150 Wireless USB Adapter from Best Buy. When I went to locate a network, I found mine and tryed to connect with it. My internet connection is Linksys. I was asked for three things: my username, password, and domain type. I found my username and password and entered them but I wasnt sure about the domain, I tryed my network security key which was 10 letters and I could not add any more but after it tested it told me it could not connect. Is this because i have a wrong domain? (10 number code) or is it because my Linksys router is incompatable with the Belkin adapter? I get this diagnosis. This might be because the wireless (802.1X) authentication server is not avaliable, or there is a problem with the user account. Please help ASAP

It sounds like the security settings on your router are not configured correctly. Connect to the router with a cable and make sure you are NOT using WPA-Enterprise.

WPA-Enterprise means that not the router itself, but a (Domain) server running somewhere on your network (like in a company) is authenticating you.

In a nutshell:
A Domain is something like "microsoft.com". This company has more than 10,000 employees. Now imagine the little router would have to authenticate all those user information. It can't, so it hands this process on to a server, that does that job for him.

I would disable all wireless security and see if you can connect then (unplug the cable). If that works, the ideal security for you would be WPA2-AES (with a pre-shared key.) It depends on your Operating System if this setting is supported. WinXP Service Pack 2, most Linux versions and Apple do that.

If you have any questions or something is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help with any step.

Signal strength went from Good to Low


Either move the computer closer to the router or the router closer to the computer. You could also try connecting the usb adapter to a usb hub to remove any interference from the computer.

How do I reset my owners password? I have forgotten it.. I have a Belkin Wireless N150 Usb adapter and can not remember the password.


Hello,

The password is not stored in the usb adapter. The password is for the wireless router with which you have connected your N150 wireless adapter. Please check with the router the password and then you will be able to connect to the network back again,

Thanks

Can you please tell me what type of wifi usb adaptor to use connecting to intrnet can you give me the specs for adaptor there are so many different types on the market


There are four flavours of WiFi: a, b, g, & n.
A is oldest and slowest, N is the newest and fastest.

My recommendation to you is to purchase the cheaper variation of N called N150 or 150N.
This means that it's maximum connection speed to a WiFi network is 150 mega-bits per second. This is half the speed of the fastest N variation.

However, what the salesmen won't tell you at the store is that 150 megabits per second is still at least ten times faster than a typical 'very fast' internet connection. So why pay double to have a 300 megabit connection to your router, when you have only 15 megabits possible from the internet?

Where I live the N150 usb adaptors & routers are much cheaper than N300; this is why I recommend them. I recently bought a Belkin N150.

I hope that helps.

I have a modem hooked up to one computer in my room, but my mom wants internet on her computer in her room, so I went to WalMart and they gave me this and told me it would work. However I really doubted...


Hi,

You have mentioned that you have a modem connected to one computer already, if you want to access another computer from a different computer through a wireless adapter then you need a wireless router or access point to transmit the wireless signal, because the Belkin N150 Wireless USB adapter which you have bought is just a "receiver".

If you have router already connected to your modem then please give the brand name of the router you have

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

~ You're computer is not connected to the router ~ You can configure the computer ~ Try to reseat the network adapter. It is not a guarantee for an adapter to work 100% all the time.

D-Link wireless router and Belkin Wireless G USB Network adapter


Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
