Usb memory stick is not necessary to setup a router (unless you are using some of these newer so-called easy one button security setup systems on some newer routers)

Just hardwire into the router login to the routers setup page...

http://192.168.1.1 (linksys some netgear most others)
http://192.168.2.1 (belkin, some others)
http://192.168.0.1 (dlink and a few others)
http://10.0.0.1 (netgear if it detects wan gateway on 192.168.1.x subnet)

when you log in to the router look at the wireless security settings and write down or copy the key thats the key you will use when windows asks you for a key in wireless setup...(o-yeah those aforementioned one button setups usually set an impossibly long cryptic key that you could possibly never be able to type in by hand correctly first few tries... you may want to change it and turn off WPS the reset the new key on all your other wireless devices...)

Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click System Tools
Click Files and Settings Transfer Wizard
Use the Wizard, but "de-select" most of the settings, so that _only_ the "network settings" are saved.
Tell the Wizard to write one file to a USB memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to the new computer.
Run the Wizard again, telling it to "import" the settings from the memory-stick.

I have a laptop and was given an 10/100 fast ethernet notebook adapter. can I install on my laptop and how


You'll need another computer with Internet access, and either a USB port (for a USB memory-stick) or a CD-writer (and a "blank" disk).

Download the device-driver software for your adapter, and your Operating System,
and copy the files to the memory-stick or to the CD-R.

Take the memory-stick or CD-R to your computer, and run the software to install the device-driver.
Connect the adapter when the "installer" tells you to connect it.

Then, configure the "wireless" settings (SSID/password) to connect to your wireless router.

I have a dynex enhanced wireless g network adapter. The computer that uses it is a windows xp. The computer will recognize it and it will show up but I can't connect it to any wireless networks. There is a...


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

Hi i want to transfer some pictures from my home computer to my laptop how do i do this


You can use a USB flash memory stick. Plug it into the computer where the photos are located and copy the photo to the USB memory stick. Then remove the USB memory stick and insert it into the laptop and copy the photos from the USB memory stick to the laptop.

Wireless program..


Hi!

Yepp, you can use your Toshiba 1405 with a wireless router. What you need is an wireless USB-stick to connect to the router. And you need drivers to that stick, but they follow with the stick when you buy one. You dont need any other programs, the settings you do in XP network.
You will find wirelessUSB-sticks and wireless router (sometimes a sticks follows with the router) in any internet shop or in any pc-shop near you.

Here is an example, its a D-link wireless router and a wireless usb-stick

You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.

How do i have a usb port run a high speed device


The USB port in your computer is not the new high-speed USB 2.0 version, and when you plug a USB 2.0 device in you will get that message. Most USB devices will still work but not give best performance. Just close the message window.

The network cable unplugged message can be disabled through the network settings. Normally Windows is set to display that message when there is no network cable connected. You can just ignore the message.

Wireles conection problem


I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!
