Try all the ports on the router, check if the Ethernet light is lit up on the router. Check you lan connection if it says connected, check the IP address and use the default gateway address to access the router's UI. If its saying limited or no connectivity, try to turn off the router then turn it back on and check again. If that didnt work, try to reset the router for 30 seconds by pressing the reset button.

I have congigured my Linksys WAP54G Access Point with a lan cable hookup. The system recognizes the port but once I unhook the cable it will not recognize it wirelessly.any suggestions?

From what I am understanding: you are setting your wireless up and when you are done with configuring the settings, you are unplugging the laptop/desktop from the device and trying to access the Internet. Correct?

If thats the case I will assume these things:
- You are seeing the wireless router when you are trying to connect but it still wont let you connect.
- You are NOT seeing the wireless router and want to connect to it.

What you will have to do it go back into the router (hard wired into it) and start over. Make sure you access the wireless setting and ensure the settings are compatible with your wireless laptop. If your laptop is very new then the setting at the bottom will work if your laptop is older then the options like WEP/WAP Personal setting will do. Make sure you write down the settings you used for refrence later.

When you rename the device, wirite it down too!

Ensure you "Apply" all the settings and "Logout."

When you are done, go to "Start," "Control Panel," "Network and Sharing Center," "Set-up a connection or network," "Manually connect to a wireless network," and enter all the information you wrote down!

Let me know if there is anything else you need help with!

Where does it install to and do i need an installation cd

what you have a is usb wireless network adapter, which is a device that allows you to connect a usb enabled computer (laptop/desktop) to a wireless router (access point) so you can got connect to a network or go online if your router is set up for it.

you would usually need a driver for your computer to recognize and work with this device. the driver usually comes on a cd with the unit. you would usually insert the cd and follow the instructions, or you would usually also install the drive and then connect the device.

hope that helps.

I'm using the gateway 2 wire 2701hg-b for the wired home computer but we can't get the laptop (2nd computer) to connect wireless. what am I doing wrong.? The set up wizard was used and recognizes the...

I've had many problems with 2wire gateways. I would first suggest changing the default WEP key if you are using WEP at all. I actually recommend you use WPA2. It's much more secure. If that does not change anything, it could be RF (Radio Frequency) interference. Turn off any 2.4 GH wireless devices. This includes any wireless landline phones you have. Wireless access points operate on the same range (2.4GHz). The difference is is that wireless phones 'hog' the frequency. 802.11x devices have special protocols implemented (CSMA/CA) to 'share the air'. If that is the problem and still want to use the wireless phones, set your wireless access point to use a different channel. It's it's on 1, set it to 11. You'll have to do some testing for best results.

Wlan disconnected

I'll need more information to give you an effective answer. If your wlan was connecting just fine, and now you don't have a stable connection, it could be a range issue and you'll have to get closer to the access point.
If your wlan doesn't work at all, and won't get recognized by your computer you may need the latest drivers, in which case I'll need the model number of your wlan device.
If it works, finds your wireless connection but can't connect, try resetting your wireless router.

Wireless adapter not recognizing IP address

Try pressing and holding the reset button in for 15 seconds and unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in. That should reset the router to factory settings. It can also be done through the router's web interface.
