Linksys WPC54G wireless adaptor

Hi,

I have inherited a Toshiba Satellite notebook A30, runningwindows XP Home Edition and using a Pentium 4 processor.

It has the WPC54G wireless adaptor with it, but I cannot get it to connect to my internet connection unless I use the ethernet cable.

Please be aware that I do not have recovery disks or instructions for either the notebook or adaptor.

Can you help me, please?

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I had already downloaded the driver for the wireless adaptor. The device manager says that it is working OK, although the link light on the adaptor only flashes intermittently.

Hi,

A couple of ideas:
1. Download and run "NetStumbler" This is to determine if the Linksys WPC54G is working, the drivers are installed and if your Wireless AP/Router could be detected;
2. Use static IP Add temporarily on your Toshiba Satellite notebook A30 following the specified IP Add from your router;
3. Verify that your AP/Router is not using WEP,WPA or MAC filter.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back with make & model of your WiFi AP/Router, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Install the adapter, downloaad the latest drivers from linksys.com and then open the properties of the wireless adapter.

Next open the settings screen of your wireless access point. make sure that all settings match, such as channel, encryption type/level, everything. then try connecting again.

If you do not know how to get to your wireless acces point's settings tab, browse to the manufacturer's website and download the manual. That should give you enough information to enable you to get your wireless up and running.

Linksys wireless notebook adapter 2.4 GHz??


Since your Toshiba has a wireless card built in, you wont derive much benefit from using it.

It is basically there for people who don't have built in wireless cards.

hello!

-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.

Won't load software properly


Have you chcked if the system recognizes the card and installs the correct drivers?
Otherwise go to the linksys website and look for the xp drivers for your model and instal it?
