Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm trying to set up a Linksys Wireless A G card with an old Gateway Solo 5300 laptop. I use the same card with both a Dell Inspiron 8100 and 1501 laptops without problems. My network is setup using WPA-personal. On the Gateway Solo laptop I'm trying to setup, I can successfully get the the card to work using WEP but not when using WPA-personal. The common difference between the three laptop systems is the operating system: one uses XP, another Vista, and the Gateway uses Win2k. I have to believe that Win2k is the problem. Any suggestions?

The old standby solution was used: I removed the card from the laptop and rebooted the computer without it. Then I re-installed it. I then checked the configuration and saw that it had not changed the network encryption to WPA-Personal from WEP - even though the card had shown that it had. So, I changed it again, and voila! - it worked. Can't believe that after working with these damn things for so many years, I can still get tripped up by the simplest solution...

Just had a new wireless card fitted and I am trying to connect to my router


I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing.

What type of wireless PCMCIA card would I need for my gateway solo 5300 if I have verizon fios in my home? Thanks


Any type 1 or type 2 PCMCIA or PCCARD (Not Express Card) should work fine. However, due to the age of your computer, I would buy the cheapest card that support WiFi G. Wifi G is not only faster, but has a stronger and more reliable signal over version B.

Please note that I just found this article on the Internet about Verizon Fios which you may wish to check out first. http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/fiosinternet/networking/setup/wi-fi/124650.htm

Good Luck

This may not be enough of a solution, since you might have tried this already:
You know the little icon you see at the bottom for the Windows wireless service? Right-click on that, and go to "View available networks." The window that pops up should have a pane on the left, something that says "Change advanced settings." If I remember right, there's a tab that says "Wireless Networks", then uncheck "Use windows to configure my wireless network settings." Image below

Wireless switch on model solo 5300


Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook?
The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit.
See:
http://support.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo5300/8508144/8508144.htm

Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.

I think there is no Wireless lan connection available with your machine. You will have to install the same. Now USB Wireless Lan Cards available. Buy a New Wireless lan adopter and install

Can not use Internet with new Linksys rangeplus wireless router


Okay chances are your 2wire's ip address is conflicting with your router's ip address. Set up your router to use 192.168.2.1. Save the settings then everything should work for you.
