It's the particular type of security you've got set up. Some formats of security require the key to be between a minimum and maximum number of characters, some require it to be a set number of characters. If you have problems, reset the router using the reset button on the back, and run the setup again.

Tries to connect sees wireless network and continues to try and connect but never will


when you try to connect to the wireless network does it ask for the wireless password ?

Cant connect my SMC to other home computer and have a netgear router, how do i connect my smc adapter


Most hardware like an Network Adaptor you install the software CD 1st. Then plug in the hardware.

Then if you configured wireless (wifi, 802.11) settings on your SMC - you should fine the network NAME when you try to connect. You will be asked for the security key for WEP or WPA or WPA2 that you used in the SMC.

SMC should... then assign IP Settings automatically. If the SMC has Internet, you should have Internet.

Lost the Driver for Linksys PCI wireless adapter, model wmp 54g


Go to your Device Manager and on the right side look and find Network Adapters. Expand the Network Adapter by clicking on it so you can see your Wireless Network Adapter. If it has a yellow exclamation on it then you need to install the correct driver, if it doesn have that exclamation the it may already have the correct driver. It may also be disabled ( red X) so enable it.

Check the wireless connection properties.On the "General" tab and in the middle look for and find "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" . Highlight it and click "properties". Make sure here that if you have set-up your router to connection type of DHCP that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are the only ones checked.

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?

SMC7901BRA Modem + Router Cannot connect


The Linksys router can be communicated with by going to Start>Run>type 'http://192.168.1.1' and when the logon screen appears use 'linksys' for username and 'admin' for the password. There you can reset defaults, view status, configure all router functions, et al, including restore defaults. Pressing the little reset button has reset levels that vary with the amount of time it is pressed -basically discharging a capacitive charge. Remember that cable modems use DHCP whereas DSL uses PPPoE. ~Steve
