Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router

2 Answers

Laptop problems To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2. I am using XP Pro, does that make a difference? My internet provider is Verizon, the only other computer going through my wireless router is my desk top and that is working fine. I connected my router directly to my laptop and the internet worked just fine. There are two sets of computers down on the right hand corner with red X's across them the first set of computers with a red X says wireless connection 3 wireless connection unavailable, the second set of computers with a red x says Local area Connection a network cable is unplugged. I checked the network cables twice and even switched them out, they fit tight also my desktop is working fine through the router so I can't have a cable unplugged. any help would be greatly appreciated thank you Gary tenbrink2@verizon.net

Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy lately. You need to right click on the icon labelled "wireless network connection". select the option "view available wireless networks". If you get such message like "windows is unable to configure your wireless network", this means the laptop has a software to configure and connect to a network wirelessly. Mat I know what brand is the laptop?

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP and the flat I've moved into has wireless broadband - how do I connect to it?


You can use a wireless network to share Internet access, files, printers, and more. Or you can use it to surf the Web while you're sitting on your couch or in your yard. Plus, it's easier to install than you think.
There are 4 steps to creating a wireless network:
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
2.
Connect your wireless router
3.
Configure your wireless router
4.
Connect your computers
For Windows XP users, Windows XP Service Pack 2 is not required for wireless networking, but it does make things much easier. Service Pack 2 also helps protect you against hackers, worms, and other Internet intruders.

Connect your computers
If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
wireless_connected.gifFollow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
2.
The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.
wireless_chooseconnection.gif 3.
Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
4.
Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.
