Question about 2wire HomePortal 100 Network Adapter
What distance from the router can I have my second computer hooked up and receive good signal. I Am having an issue with the wireless netopia USB getting a (good) signal. The network icon on the bottom task bar indicates there is a good signal. However when I run the install disk after selecting the second coputer choice during the set up I receive a low signal and then the disk prompts me to type the last 3 digits of the SN# and then the 10 digit key. I do this and the computer states it is unable to make a connection. I have the second computer in a bonus room over my garage that is attached to the house. The 2 nd computer is around 60 to 80 feet away. What range can I expect?

Are you using the same security as the others?
Make sure the the security key is exactly the same as the others.
Also check the firewall settings

The adapter is been installed properly?
Try to check this settings on the router:
- Try to change the channel of the router (either 1, 6 or 11)
- Check the visibility status (if visible or invisible) (Under wireless settings)
- Make sure that the network filter (MAC address is turn off) (Under advance tab)
- Disable the wifi-protected setup of the router (Under advance tab)
- Then check the if you can detect the wireless network?

2. u can still let windows configure wireless for this card as well

Make sure the N router is also sending a broadcast for B/G mode, as the 2wire adapters do not support N technology. You can login to your router by typing "home" or "192.168.0.1" or "192.168.1.1" in your web browser and check the wireless settings on your Dlink to see if it supports these methods.

http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=download click on the adapter link for the driver and instructions. If you dont see the picture of your adapter, then click on the legacy link on the adapter page. After you install the software just use the icon on the lower right to connect to your wireless network.
