Linksys router and Belkin wireless adaptor

I've just set up a Belkin wireles adaptor on my desktop PC (Windows XP) and the utility can't seem to see any network when connected to a Linksys 2.4 Ghz router. Any idea why? Are these not compatible? Do I need to get a Linksys adaptor?

    same problem, connects to router, but does not get to internet

    I have the same problem with one extra issue. After a few minutes, my whole internet connection falls out. ie The LinkSys router drops the internet connection. Remove the Belkin N1 wireless adapter and recycle the power and the router connects again. This is without the Belkin connected (I see this from other computers running on my network). Can anyone with the same configuration (LinkSys Router and Belkin N1 USB adapter) confirm that it works for them.

    The Belkin Wireless Networking Utility also seems to be buggy. You have an options tab but changing anything has no effect. The 'Cancel Changes' and 'Save Changes' are permanently disabled (even if you change some parameter)

    I can add that I have updated the Belkin driver etc, and still no connection. This is also the second Belkin adapter that I'm trying. Had the same problems with the first one and believed that it was not working because of a hardware fault and swopped it out. Could it be that the second one does not work - maybe but unlikely. Windows standard connection utility shows that there is a limited connection but I can't even access the router (

    Here is an update to my previous post. After trying so many times on my XP machine, I tried installing this on a Vista Laptop (Please remember to download the latest drivers from Belkin as Vista drivers are not included on the install disk - mine anyway and seems to be a common complaint). Installed first time and connected with no problems. Connection speed stinks 81 Mbps and I'm only 20 feet from the router! So this confirms that the Belkin N1 USB network adapter works with a LinkSys router - no compatability issues.

    The only other thing that I can think of is that I did have a LinkSys WUSB54GC installed in the computer that I could not get the Belkin to work in. I did uninstall the LinkSys driver (and removed all referencing register entries). I just wonder if other users who are having issues, also had another previously install network adapter?

Have a linksy's router and just got a belkin adaptor for the other room.won't work.

the router is Linksys and the adapter is belkin. Well both the devices are compatible with each other. When you tr y to connect to the wireless network , do you see your wireless network ? What is the operating system on the computer ? If it is XP and you are using the Belkin utility to connect to the wireless network , then it will be better to switch over to XP utility. Make sure that you have the correct network key for the wireless network. If you don't know the network password then you will need to access the router set up. Click Here for step by step solutions

Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer? Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections". If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it. If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again. let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it

Connection and signal strength depends upon the router. Just go through the settings on the wireless router, try changing the wireless channels.And also change the wireless mode on the router to 802.11g.This should be the compatible mode for your wireless adapter. to do this first connect the router with the help of an ethernet cable .Please follow the below steps:
1)Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “” (you do
not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then
press the “Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The
home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any
changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page
will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password
entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.
Your Router can operate in three different wireless modes:
“g and b”, “g only”, and “b only”.
Change the wireless channel to 9 or 11
Click on save changes once you have done this
This should work,if it doesnt work let us know the exact problem in detail.

Cannot setup WPA2 on WUSB54G & WPC11 adaptors

This is because those wireless adapters that you mentioned do not support for WPA2. Linksys will not release drivers for those adapters that will make it work with WPA2 because they are already discontinued. So the only other option is to stick with WPA or WEP

-- 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.

D-Link wireless router and Belkin Wireless G USB Network adapter

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
