Question about U.S. Robotics (USR5450) 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Purchased a Compaq with a Broad com adapter

My entire house is set up with a US Robotics system.  Each computer has it's own card for Wi-Fi and is working properly except for the new Compaq.  The system is set up with WEP and the appropriate MAC addresses are input into the USR software. 

 

I can use an ethernet connection to access the router and internet but cannot with the wireless adapter.  Properties for the adapter such as "infrastructure" are not in the list to pick.  That being one that needs to be available for the USR. 

 

Anyone know of any suggestions.  Compaq and USR were not helpful with the problem.

It is possible that USR is using mAC filtering as a form of security. Your new Compaq adapter has a MAC address. You can try getting the mac address of this device and input this on the USR

I have T-Mobile 4g galaxy avant android phone. I do not have coverage n my ares 4 the Internet. Cam I hook WI-FI up 2 my desk top and accessories the inn tenet via my home wi-fi


You can get WI-FI anywhere WI-FI is available with a smart phone.
But if you only have a modem at home and an ethernet cable from the modem to your computer to get internet, then you may not have WI-FI at home.
You'll need to get a wireless router to have WI-FI at home.
Once you do that, you can continue to have your desktop hooked up by the ethernet cable, but you can also install a WI-FI adapter card in your desktop. It will have an antenna on the back of your computer and then you can set it up anywhere in your house and have internet without an ethernet cable.

Wi fi card remove computer startworking


Remove and reinstall driver...possibly replace Wi-Fi card. Are there 2 Wi-Fi cards? Go to device manager (Windows?) and see if it thinks your card is working or not. Yellow ! means it has a problem. And that's where you uninstall it. Reboot and see if that helps.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Cant enable wi-fi


You will need to check that the router is on first, then go to the internet settings on your computer, if the wi-fi doesnt show up try and SCAN so your computer will look for it. When it is found you will need to give it a password and then its ready to go

Wi-fi showing disabled


You may find that the WiFi card needs new drivers. Some particular wifi adapters don't have XP drivers. Compaq are now owned by hewlett packard so go to www.hp.com and search for XP drivers for your wifi card there - luckily HP are very good for providing drivers for XP even on Vista-supplied systems.
