Question about Linksys WUSB54GS 802.11G USB Adapter Wireless-G With SpeedBooster (Retail) (NTUSLSUSB54G)

Linksys Wireless G USB Adapter does not connect to the Internet

Hi, I just recently bought a Linksys Wireless G USB Adapter to connect wirelessly but it does not work. I am running Windows 2000 (SP4) and it says on the box that it is compatible. It shows that it is connected to my home network by displaying the name and the signal strength but when I open up a window in IE, it just does not work. Can someone please help me? I have tried the same network adapter on an XP laptop and it does work OK. Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response.

    I am not an expert on this so I apologise if my response is a little vague (but I will do my best !)

    1st thing is saw is that my IP address on the win2000 pc is: 89.217.147.31. Then, it says that my LAN is 192.168.1.1 on the modem settings. Also, if I am not mistaken, Linksys told me to config. the router to 10.10.10.101. So I am a little confused.

    My DHCP is enabled.

    If I connect the ethernet cable directly to the comp., it works. Only the wireless USB doesn't seem to work.

    Lastly, when I try to release the ipconfig, it says that the WAN (Wireless Connection) was automatically configured and does not currently have a DHCP address.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again for your help

    Cheers

    Aguila-Uno

    What are your IP address settings?



    Are you running DHCP on the router? If so, is your win2000 box obtaining a valid IP?



    Are you able to ping the router over wireless when you have no WAN connectivity?



    Does your win2000 box connect via the router over ethernet normally?

Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?


No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.

Internet explorer won't open


when it says connected it means to the router, open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and tick never dial a connection, or if it's already greyed out it's ok.

Assuming you have run the wireless network connection wizard first to set up the connection, if not it's in network connections and select new wireless connection or set up a wireless network.

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
