Most likely your DNS is not being recognized or getting through. You can do a diagnosis using IE8 and see what it comes up with. Also you can reset the works and try again to get the DNS to answer the router. If not call your internet provider and manually install the Primary DNS numbers make sure that the Network is set to auto detect. Thanks for using FixYa! John

The linkssys usb adapter does not connect automatically to the WLAn router. it always says "win xp manage the wlan" but this is not true


the problem may be caused by the installation of the usb adapter's WLAN software (WinXP already has a built-in WLAN). Ty uninstalling the adapter's WLAN monitor, unplug and replug the USB adapter to your computer and it will be installed automatically. Once installed, Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections >>Right click Wireless Network Connections and click View available wireless networks. Try manually connecting initially to the router and see if it will be automatic from then on.

Linksys wireless adapter not being recognized by 2wire wireless


1. uninstall the WLAN monitor from add/remove programs.
2. restart computer. it should say "found new hardware" (for the WMP54GS)
3. insert the installation CD for the WMP54G, but make sure that you do not install the WLAN monitor. just install the drivers for the card.
Then let windows control the wireless.
