Question about Asante AL1611 802.11b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Fatal Exceptions I installed my Asante AL1611. It says it connects but I can't access the internet. When I reboot the machine it gives me a series of fatal errors so I have to shut down. I'm running Win98. I wonder if the drivers are OK, I've tried to get updated drivers but all the links are dead. The ftp site at RealTek is also dead or at least requires authentication??

    This may well be the case, the NIC is three years old and worked fine in my wife's Win2000 laptop which died. I'm trying to use my old Win98 laptop until her employer coughs up for a proper replacement. Guess I'll have to hard wire it into the lan instead.

    I could get nothing from RealTek at all, no explanation or even acknowledgment that their links were broken.

    Thanks

The best thing about this old Asante AL1611 wifi-b card is that it only protrudes 1cm. I use it mainly for surfing in coffee shop with an old Portege 3480CT (P3-600) XP-based laptop, and its fine. Range is mediocre.

This card is based on an old Realtek 80211b chipset. For both WEP & WPA compatibility you must you update to the RTL8180L driver (version 173) - look for this filename: ndis5x-8180(173).zip on the net.

The mfg/dealer rebate of $10 never came through, so I paid $20 for it back in 2004. If you can get it for about $10 or less and just need basic connectivity, its good for what it is. (from Canada)

Is this a new device? A lot of newer wireless adaptors come with drivers for NTFS based operating systems such as windows 2k or XP. Windows 98 runs on FAT32. I don't know if this will work. I suggest you upgrade your OS.

Cannot access mmy dvd rom

completely uninstall product, reboot system and reinstall. ensure dvd rom is not attached before install.

If the system wont uninstall you need to reinstall software to correct error then uninstall to reinstall after reboot.

install dvd rom after you have correctly installed drivers.

Sometimes an internet update proves fatal with original install.

Automatic updates are not worth carrying out to be honest.

No inmternet access

Could be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the modem driver, then reboot. The machine will find the modem and reinstall the driver automatically. Then try removing and reinstalling the software you use for the dial up connection.

Computer is showing fatal error

That fatal error warning message is not coming from your operating system - it is coming from a virus. Do not follow whatever instructions boxes like that may tell you until after the following process.

Turn on your machine's firewall and tick NO EXCEPTIONS. Download an anti-virus product like AVG from download.com. Install it, update it until it says it has all updates, and then do a complete scan of your machine removing viruses.

Reboot.

Navigate to WINDOWS UPDATE on your start bar and allow it to install all updates it can, even optional ones.

Reboot.

Go to ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS from CONTROL PANEL and remove all security software besides the anti-virus you just installed, since this software has failed and is now unreliable.

Good luck...

Lost Connection

Asante Networks, Inc. 2223 Oakland Road, San Jose, CA 95131 USA Phone 408.435.8388 · Website www.asante.com Asante Networks, Inc. 2223 Oakland Road, San Jose, CA 95131 USA · Phone 408.435.8388 · Website www.asante.com i assume you have tried to get into the router settings, if not, this is how, Make sure you typed in the address correctly. (Default: 192.168.123.254) Add http:// in front of the address. Try http://192.168.123.254:88. Make sure the link light on the front panel is on for the port you are plugged into. (If it is not, you have a bad cable, wrong type of cable, have not seated the cable well, or have a problem with your computer's ethernet adapter card.) Make sure the router is plugged in and on. Make sure your computer is set to DHCP (Mac) or Obtain IP address automatically (PC) in the Network control panel. If you can configure the router and the router can receive a proper response and IP assignment from your ISP, then you are connected to the Internet. If you are unable to browse or other such operations it is almost always because your DNS (Domain Name Server) setup is incorrect. Check both in the client computer IP setup as well as the router setup to make sure that your Domain Name Server is one that can be reached and pinged. if you need to reset the router because you've had no response, reset the router by unplugging it, waiting 10 seconds, then re-plugging it. Restart your computer. If you still are unable to get on the net, then either your isp is at fault, so check with them for a network status, or the router may be faulty.
