How do you install the wirleless router?


1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Network and Internet Connections.
3 Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
4. Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Drops out often and disconnects. Use repair

in the device manager, open the properties for the network adapter and on the power management tab, uncheck the box saying "allow windows to turn off this device"

Xbox 360 Does not recongize my wireless adapter

My adapter light is a solid red. When I plug in an ethernet cord, that'll connect.. but when I take the ethernet cable out, the 360 always reports Disconnected under Network Adapter even though the wireless adapter is plugged in.

Network adapter

Please dont take offense to my questions, I just want to make sure everything is set up right for you.

Xbox does not have built in wireless capability, so first do you have the wireless adapter for xbox360 plugged in properly?

If you do not have the wireless adapter for xbox, even though you have a wireless router, you will still need to plug the normal ethernet cables in.

The only time your xbox will tell you that the network adapter is disconnected is if it is not plugged into the xbox, whether that is the wireless network adapter, or the cord.

I hope I helped to fix your problem.

Wireless adapter disconnecting and reconnecting

Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection1.gif Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.

Are you using the VISTA adapter driver on the disconnecting computer?
