Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Your problem is listed under the wrong product category, just thought I'd mention that. Are you trying to troubleshoot the N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter (WNDA3100)? I can not identify your hardware by the number 600n. Feel free to respond so I can further assist you in finding the drivers you need to get that XP up and running again.

I have defined 2 networks, one for the G and the other for the N channel, only the one for the G gets connected


You have WRT610N dual band router . it works on both 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghx bands at the same time.
Both the bands are N bands.
2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band are capable of working on N signals.
Now on your computer you are able to see only the 2.4 GHz signals but not the 5 GHz signals.
To see the wireless signal on the computer , your computer should have 5 GHz compatible wireless adapter.
If you have 2.4 GHZ adapter on your computer then you won't be able to connect to the 5 Ghz signal.
Open the Device manager and under network adapters you will see the wireless adapter. Check if it is dual band wireless adapter.

First unplug your router, then unplug your modem and for 10 seconds. Next plug the modem back in and wait it to reboot(on mine this a series of 4 lights that light up in sequence, when the 4th light stops flashing, reboot is complete). Finally plug your router back in.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
