You need to get into your routers settings and make sure that DHCP is enabled to automatically assign ip addreses and also go to the properties of your wireless adapter and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Turn off any WEP or WPA security until you have all the connections, make sure that the adapter is on the same wireless channel as your router and that all the pc's are on the same network workgroup eg WORKGROUP or MSHOME. It may be as simple as right clicking on your wireless adapter icon in control panel>network conections and select connect.

I previously was able to connect to internet and suddenly it no longer will connect- is there anything I can try to troubleshoot this? I am running Windows XP

are you sure you are using the right protocol in aqccordance with the information from your provider.. WEP or WPA-PSK?" and the right number to open the gateway?

If the newtwok drops out, sometimes this information is lost and has to be reinserted. If you uninstall linksys and remove the usb and then reinsert it, does it flash and become discovered?
Also make sure you have set up wireless network in XP

If a wrong protocol is inserted Linksys will often report.. Connected to the Network But internet gateway not found... If you get that message then ewither your protocls are incorrect or you have not set up the network correctly. your ISP should be able to guide you through this by phone support.

Can't connect through my wireless G network adapter.

Give the default gateway address of your laptop computer in the desktop computer. this will solve your issue.

My system was working fine one day. The next day, it won't connect to the internet, saying that Windows can not manage my linksys connection. I have a Dell PC using Windows XP Service Pack 3

There are two solutions that you can try first
Perform system restore to the earlier date that connection working fine
Re install the driver of the wireless adapter
If you need further help please post.
Good Luck

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.

Connected to rounter but not internet

Normally this means that you are not putting in the security key or wireless key. Click on the linksys software then go to site survey select your network then click connect and type in the correct security key.

Router connecting to Linksys USB adapter

to confirm if your Network adapter's assigned IP, subnet, Gateway & DNS
  • Start > Run > cmd
  • at cmd prompt type: ipconfig /all
  • look at the parameters given to your Network Device that is connected to the router (IP, Subnet, Gateway & DNS Servers.
  • Verify those addresses if they are reachable by pingging. Check your IP, Gateway, then check for the DNS Addresses. Type cmd prompt: ping ip_address << do not omit the periods between the numbers.
  • See if there are replies from those addresses. if you get Request timed out, tell us here which part you get one. if you can receive a reply from those addresses (gateway & DNS Servers) definitely you are already connected to the internet. Just check your Browser's connection setting.

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet

sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?

Internet conections

you will need either a usb 54MBPS or 108MBPS wireless adapter of any make that will connect to a usb port or a pci wireless card to fit in the pc tower on the motherboard.
