Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have installed the WLAN Adapter and tried to configure wireless network,but going back to "Realtek WLAN Client Utility" I noticed that in "Link Status" section line "Connection" stated -"Disconnected". Going back to "Network Preference" of my Mac G5(OS X 10.5.8) I noticed line "Status" stated -"Connected" with a note: "Ethernet Adapter(en2) has a self-assigned IP Address and may not be able to connect". The Version of a Driver I Installed from provided mini CD is: 1064 UI:1.6.8 . Naturally, the LED of the Adapter is not "On". Please,help me set up this Adapter. Thank you Robert Ph.# : (310)394-3356

SOURCE: laptop cant connect wirelessly

Hey Charlie, If you re-installed your operating system you will need to get the wireless modem driver from your dell disk. For some reason they have not included the drivers in the windows software. If you can't find it then you can go on to the Dell site(obviously on another computer) and enter your service tag and get your drivers that way.

I hope this helps

It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."

SOURCE: After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.

My driver detects wireless networks then for no reason doesnt detect any then i restart my computer then it detects them again. wat could be the problem?


Make sure you get the Realtek Wireless Lan Utility; if you're not using it now you're lucky you can connect at all.

When you get that installed, or if you already have it, find the file in the REALTEK install folder called 8185.ini (or 8185x64.ini on a 64 bit OS), delete everything in it, and paste this into it. It'll give you more control over the card and open up new options in the wireless utility.

You mentioned that you have Windows XP SP1... You need to install at least SP2 or even SP3 for this adapter to work. If this computer doesn't have internet access at all, then you can usually get SP2 or SP3 on a disc for free from Microsoft.

Does not save wireless security settings


Encrypting the network blocks any unauthorized computer from accessing the network and using its broadband connection. To enable WEP on the router,

1. Open your default browser and enter the following IP address into the address bar: <http://192.168.1.1>
2. When prompted for a username and password type “admin” on password, unless you have previously changed the password of the router, and hit OK. This will bring you to the Setup page of the router.
3. Depending on the firmware of the router. Click on the WEP Key Settings button. Or you can click the Wireless tab and select Wireless Security. Or you can click the Security Tab and select Wireless.
4. From the WEP/Security Settings window, you may enable 64 or 128 bit WEP then enter your Password on the Passphrase field and click on Generate. Make sure to copy the characters on Key 1-4 on a piece of paper before you hit APPLY. You will be needing this once you enable WEP on the wireless PC’s. Also take note that if you enable 64 or 128 bit on the router, this should be the same WEP level that you will enable on the wireless cards.

To put in the network key in your wireless adapter follow the steps below:

WEP Encryption XP's Wireless Zero Configuration ( Advisable for XP PC's )

1. Go to start>Control Panel>Network Connections>Right click on the Wireless connection then click on Properties>Click on the Wireless Networks Tab
2. From the Wireless Network Connection properties window, under the Preferred network click on Add then type your SSID on the SSID field and check the box for Data Encryption then then uncheck “The Key is provided for me Automatically”
3. Type your WEP Keys on both the Network Key and Confirm Network Key field. (This set of characters should be identical to the WEP Keys Settings on the router. For 64-bit WEP you should have 10 characters, for 128-bit you should type in 26 characters.) Then hit OK and then OK again.
4. After hitting OK a pop-up should appear on the lower right hand side saying “Connected”. Try pointing your mouse arrow on the lower double monitor icon.
5. Restart your PC

WEP Encryption using the Linksys WLAN Utility ( 98/Me/2000 )

Make sure that the WLAN utility of the Linksys adapter is already is installed. If not, you may follow follow the procedures below for "Installing the Linksys WLAN Utility"

1. Click on Start then Programs, then click on anything that says something about the Linksys Wireless Adapter. On the menu, select either WLAN Utility or Wireless Configuration Utility
2. On the lower right-hand side of your screen, double click on the Linksys Icon. This will bring up the WLAN Configuration Utility.
3. Click on the Profiles Tab. Make sure that the SSID that is set to default is your routers SSID. Highlight Default then hit Edit.
4. Select Profile Wizard. Continue to click the Next button, until you get to the Security Settings Window.

OR select Expert Mode then Next. Then click on Security Settings
5. Set the same WEP level that you have enabled on the router. ( ex. 64 or 128 )
6. Type your WEP Keys. This set of characters should be identical to the WEP Keys Settings on the router. For 64-bit WEP you should have 10 characters, for 128-bit you should type in 26 characters.
7. Hit OK then Next. On Confirm New Settings click Yes. And then click “Activate New Settings Now”

Cannot connect


Hi, A couple of questions to gather more information: On what platform are you using the wireless adapter, a laptop or a desktop PC? What brand/model or motherboard? If it is a laptop, is it built-in, USB or PCM-CIA card? If it is a desktop, USB external or PCI add-in card? What is the brand/model of the wireless adapter? What is your OS? Are you using Windows Wireless Network Configuration Utility or a third party/wireless adapter manufacturer client/utility program? Have you tried NetStubler to verify if your wifi card is receiving something? Post back then we can start figuring things out. Kind regards.
