Question about Cisco Linksys E1000 WirelessN Broadband Router Network Routers

1 Answer

My linksys e1000 router works wirelessly with all my computers except my laptop which uses windows vista SP2, my network card is atheros ar5007, and my ISP is COX. I understand that the network driver is not compatible with the E 1000 router

    Hi Sam, HP dv7 notebook. I am pretty sure it's the driver as it sees other wireless networks but next to my wireless network there is a big X that says my computer is not compatible or something to that effect. I talked to a linksys rep and he told me that the issue is with the network driver. I don't know how to change the network driver but that seems to be the only solution.

Hi,
Most of the times you would be right when you say its a driver issue. :)
But there are certainly few steps that you can try as in -
a) Making an other third party program manage wireless on your XP SP2 machine
b) Tweaking the wireless channels to check if there is interference(this must have minimal impact as you already state that its working with everything else).
Try downloading a third part freeware to manage your wireless connections and uninstall the arheros client.
But before doing this try with windows client as well.
What is make and manufacturer of the XPSP2 machine??

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL

Can't connect to internet wirelessly


'is a wireless card and a wireless network card the same thing?'
answer:- yes they mean the same device, just a different way of referring to it.
'Is this both hardware AND software?'
answer:- no, it's just the hardware.

Also, have you typed in the security code from the router (the WEP key) if not sure, google 'wep key'
Don't spend $, hp are excellent with their update site.
Are your other computers using Vista and working wirelessly ok?
Do you get any signal quality indicator bars up on the Atheros window?
Have you tried 'rescanning for networks' ?
How close to the router are you? If not very, try positioning laptop adjacent to it and do a rescan.

Since the connection works without the encryption settings, it is NOT a driver issue. It sounds like a missing wireless network security setup problem. So assuming Windows (Mac OSX is similiar):

  1. Connect a laptop/PC to the NetGear via ethernet. It saves on some aggravations later.
  2. Connect to the NetGear and restore the security settings, and remember your keyword.
  3. On your computer, open the list of Wireless Networks (usually Start->Control Panel->Network(ing)->Wireless Networks). The menu sequence might differ slightly, depending on which Windows you're running.
  4. Find and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" (or words to that effect)
  5. Right click on your wireless network's name to get the drop down menu, and select "Properties"
  6. Find a button or tab related to "Security"
  7. Under Security Type, select WPA2-PSK (or Personal)
  8. Under Encryption Type, select "AES"
  9. Under Password (or Security Key), type in your router's WiFi security key word. You may have to log back into the NetGear and find the keyword (yours) or the alternate (gibberish) form.
  10. Save the settings
  11. If you're connected to that wireless network, then disconnect
  12. Try connecting to the wireless network again. It should work this time.

You have to update the wireless adapter driver on the toshiba website. I'm guessing you have an Atheros adapter because those usually have this problem. The driver is not advanced enough to log onto a WPA or WPA2 encryption, WEP will work fine. The driver updates have a 50/50 chance of fixing the problem otherwise you are stuck with WEP.
