My box says its a draft number 80211G and I have used it on three lap tops successfully. Up until last week. Now I just got a newer reconditioned IBM Thinkpad with Win XP Pro and can't get the internet to come up. In fact at first the card was recognized in the computer and now it doesn't say its even recognizing it to help me with the install wizard but the lights are on and it beeps when I take it in and out.
Still I had to plu it in land line to get access.
I think I need the install disc for the card which I can't find. I do have the set up wizard for the access point but when I put that in it says "device not ready" and won't let me do anything. Any help finding what I need to down load to get it to recognize and find the access point will be appreciated.

Be like that other Linksys router model, Linksys WRT160N router is always unique because of their wild, future-oriented functions and even smaller size.
You can call on the Linksys support number in order to get help from the expert to start running the router again. If the number you have dialed is not giving any response, you can go to the Contactforhelp to acquire the alternate contact number of technicians. Linksys setup customer support phone number Technical Service USA
First of all you need to connect to your router using a LAN connection (wireless won't work as you might not be connected wirelessly due to the missing WEP key) and follow the steps below:
1.) using the internet explorer (not AOl or MSN or..)but the internet explorer that your computer came with. 2.) enter "192.168.1.1" in the website address field. do NOT use www in front. 3.) this will bring you to a linksys website. You might need to login (default username and password is admin) 4.) click on wireless 5.) then wireless security 6.) then you will see the page with the wep key listed. 7.) use the first wep key listed.
In case nothing helps, you will need to hard reset your router which would erase all the settings and configuration and bring the router back to factory settings. You may refer to the manual to perform the hard reset, in case you have lost the manual leave a comment and we shall provide you the next steps.
First of all u should ensure that DHCP server is configured for your required number of computers. this problem seems that you have less clients configured in your DHCP server, existing in router configuration.
Yes you can reconnect your router. Whoever did that at Comcast had no business doing that and should be reported and return their equipment back to Comcast asap. It could appear on the bill.
I have a Linksys modem on my Comcast router and it works fine. I don't let them touch it because it uses T-Zones at home service for phone use and it uses a special router to manage it since it has a sim card to run the phone line.
Vonage equipment can be used as well.
I wonder if they were trying to put their phone service onto your system?
If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.
Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.
Do you have the router setup to provide either WEP or WPA encryption? If so, you will need to provide that Encryption key (think password) for your SSID (the wireless network you connect to).
If you then can connect to the router, but still can't get on the Net, you may need to go into the Advanced settings of that particular wireless network (Windows XP - open Available Wireless Networks, and click on the last item on the left Advanced Settings - then click on the 2nd tab - Wireless Networks - pick your network in the box at the bottom, and change one setting from "Open" to "Shared". You should then be able to connect properly.
