If the router is already set up the usb dongle software will need to be used to connect to the router to allow a connection without the need for a cable as the dongle will see the wireless signal

As you mentioned, your Compaq Presario MV520 is using Windows 98 OS. As we all know, dial-up connection is the only available internet connection at that time so obviously Win 98 has dial-up LAN connection. However, you wanted to have wireless connection on that PC so you need to install a wireless adapter to that PC. First of all, most wireless adapters that are being used for desktop PC are wireless USB adapter, so you need to have a USB port on that PC. And also, you will need to check if the software for the wireless adapter will be accepted by the PC because since the PC is using Win 98 OS, we are not sure if the firmware of the wireless adapter will be compatible to the PC. Basically, my answer would be not possible.

check to see if your wireless connection is on on your laptop and set to work with your router - check to see if your laptop's wireless signal is b/g/n - if it's only an "n" - and your router is a b/g - then you will need to purchase an "n" class router...
normally, routers do not "just work without issues" when you bring it home and plug it in - it should have come with a setup disk or instruction guide - have you completed the steps to connect?

I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.

Check your settings on your wireless setup and make sure the adapter on your computer is set to Security Type: Shared. That is the most over-looked stumbling block.

Setting up router having problems


Hi,

You don't need to have a WiFi adapter for the desktop. It can be connected using a LAN cable from the PC's Ethernet port to one of the routers Ethernet port. AS long as the desktop is set to "Auto obtain IP add" then it should work straight out.

If the LinkSys WRT54G did not came with a setup CD/Wizard, then you would need to reset it since I can only assume that it has been tried/used elsewhere before and the settings/configuration may not match your ISP and/or your network configuration. Reset involves pressing a small recessed button at the rear of the unit for about 10 seconds or more.

Once the reset was done and your router can connect to your ISP and therefore your desktop to the Internet, the laptop would also follow suit as long as the network settings is likewise set to Auto obtain.....

To verify if you can connect to the router, on your desktop, open a browser and log on to your router using 192.168.1.1,

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Getting better signal quality on wireless network?


Under the tab 'wireless' find the strint that says 'Channels', and change to another one (anyone) and then give it a day to see if you lose connection, if you do, go back and change it again. Try downloading the latest drivers and software. The WRT55AG and WRT54AG are known to drop signals. These routers are like cell phones, you have to find a good spot for them.
