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.

Using d-link glb-802 c router , now purchased another system , from router how should i connect to my another system


if the router is wireless and the new system is wireless ready then the router should pick up the signal fine and run the internet smoothly however some routers come with a security key examples WEP, WPA, WPA 2 these are the most common forms of security if this is the case you will have to enter the key on the router or in the User Manual before you have internet access... if the router is not wireless then you simply buy a new ethernet cable which now are fairly cheap if you know where to go depending on size and plug it in to the router and the appropriate slot on the computer system and this should connect you to the internet... if you system is not wireless but your router is you can now buy wireless cards that fit into the computer which recieves the signal from the router or a wireless adapter which does the same but plugs in via USB. any other information please feel free to talk to me but these options should solve your issue

I am trying to add a wireless connection to another laptop we own but apparently cannot access www.linksysfix.com/ela


Its not necessary to access linksys.com Your new laptop if has wireless card will read network automatically and connect with password if you set up for your router. If no password set up then your laptop should be online as soon as its powered on!
Most router problems can resolved by power cycle.
Check if your laptop new has wireless card and is enabled!

I've got an old Gateway desktop I need to connect to a wireless router for my job. I just bought a new, much stronger NetGear router and it still won't connect. I no longer have a laptop and I'm DESPERATE...


Unless you've installed a wireless card in your old desktop you will never connect wirelessly.
Desktops don't come equiped to do wireless communications. And an "old Gateway" surely does not have those capabilities.

You have 2 options
1) Purchase and install a wireless card for your Gateway

2) Use it hard wired... Purchase an "Ethernet cable" of sufficient length and plug it into one of the open ports on the back of the router and into the only place it will fit on the back of your computer

If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless card.computer.
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

What router brand/model do you have. Is it set up to broadcast it's SSID? Has encryption been enabled on the router?

Have you used Device Manager to make sure the new wireless card is operating properly.
