Re: Trouble connecting wireless
First thing to do is to dissable the ethernet connection in network connections on your notebook so as the ip address does not conflict.
assuming it's XP and assuming DHCP is enabled in the router settings, right click on your wireless conection in network connections, properties>TCP/IP line, highlight it and then click properties again, then ensure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply and ok, close window.
If neccasary run the wireless network wizard in new connections in network connections.
Open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that 'never dial a connection' is ticked, ok and close IE.
Open IE and click refresh a few times.

This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).
When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.
First connect that desktop to linksys with ethernet cable. then set ip property to network adapter . Set ip address ,subnet mask and gateway ip to ip property. Set ip address as the ip of network like if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so set ip like 192.168.1.15 set subnet mask as same as your other computer. Set default gatway ip as your router ip. Then you can connect internet. Let me know if you need more assistance.
No. You do not need to have a computer connected via a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable to the router for a laptop to access the wireless signal.
However, to set up the router to broadcast that wireless signal or to alter some of the wireless security settings you will have to connect directly to the router with a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable.
If you need assistance connecting to that wireless connection, let me know. I have some instructions which can help retrieve the security information from the router so you can connect to the Internet via the wireless signal.
Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?
i hope your not talking about the wireless router.....
unplug your computer from the modem, and link the modem's Ethernet port to your router's WAN port (this is important). Once you have that in place (and you may see a WAN status light come on), plug your computer into one of the other Ethernet ports using another Ethernet cable and see if you can get a connection........
Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).
This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...
Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.
You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.
What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?
