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?
Thanks,
Anne

    Hi, got the same problem. Got the Belkin N1 but when installed with Belkin programme or just the driver itself from the CD no connection. Whilst the N1 is recognised, the Network Connection screen doesn't show any wireless connection.....

    The wireless zero configuration is turned on and automatic....

    Somebody please help me, I'm pulling all my hair out trying to get this to work!!! Many thanks...

    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 (192.168.1.1).

    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

Trying to create a bridge with two routers


You do not need a bridge if you are using a wireless adaptor on your pc in the other room. Just set up the Belkin Plus router to the WEP security settings you want and make sure the pc wireless usb adaptor has the same settings as the router. You should be good to go. Good Luck.

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

Can't get a linksys wireless G PCI adapter to connect to my belkin wireless g router


Alright, First thing is to sett up the router properly. How well experience in this are you? Do you know how to IP into it and set it up manually? do you just use the easy install disk? Do you know ow to set up the encryption key?

Im asking so i dont have to spend alot of typing, explaining something you may already know. If you dont though, its o.k. I will help you.


Typically you want to set the router up first and set an encryption key. Usually something that no one can geuss like ADMIN or PASSWORD or something easily guessed. Also you name your router, like " The Big Puff or My router or some name that no one else will have so you can easily distinguish your wireless signal from others. Default is LINKSYS and the default IP is 192.168.1.1 and the password is ADMIN.

If you flip the router upside down, you will see a spot that tells you this. Thats why you have to change it, cuz everyone knows it.

Also, you need to set the Router password too so that no one else can ip into it and change it on you.

Alot of the times, the setup disk will have a easy setup wizard that can make this easy for newbies.

You want to be sure to have a secure and functioning router. Once this is achieved, install the wireles adapter and drivers software.

You have two options, use windows to control the adapter or the belkins utility that came with it. whichever works best for you.

Now in the options you have to set up the connection or you can just findit,click and connect and enter the encryption.

If windows is running the show for the adapter, you can right click on your wireless icon in the bottom right corner and select, " VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

When it loads it will show all signals including yours if you set up the router right.

Yours should be the strongest signal as well.

Select it or double click it and windows will automatically try to connect and when it does it will ask for the encryption key that you gave it earlier when you set up the router.

Enter that in exactly with caps and lower case where applicable.

It should then connect.

The situation is similar when using the belkins utility instead except that its more graphically friendly.

All wireless devices are made to be used with each other and have the same FCC requirements and theoretically it should matter which brand you use, they should all be compatible if there of the same type. I.E. G or B.

Try this and let me know if you still need help.

Dont bw affraid to call linksys on setting up your wireless router. When i first started out and knew nothing, i called linkysys for help and the guy walked me through the whole thing. Same with Belkin, allthough belkin support was not as good.

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.

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.
