Linksys Router Power Adapter

Q: Linksys Router Power Adapter

Hi -

First post for me - but what a helpful site!

I have a Linksys WRT54GX, ver. 2, wireless G router to which I have lost the ac power adapter. The manual lists it as a 12 volt DC 1 amp (12VDC 1 A).

I have been to Radio Shack, Best Buy, and numerous electronic outlets, as well as exhaustive searches on the net, as well as contacting Linksys directly (they will not sell one separate! Imagine that for tech support!).

You guessed it - I cannot find one. I even went to my pack rat brother who probably has beat Noah and has collected at least one, if not two of everything on Earth - just in case, as he says!

Anyone have any idea where I can get one of these things?

The ones I have found are 12VDC but .5a, 1.something amps, but none are 1 amp.

Anything anyone can chime in on would be appreciated.

(No there is no USB connection on the router to draw power from the CPU, either! Darn!)

I have tried everything. I recently moved out of the parents house and into my new house and upgraded to an N-Router from a G-Router. Now before my PC even starts up it crashes with the blue screen of death. I've isolated the problem to have something to do with the compatibility between my Linksys WRT160N Wireless-N router and my Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI adapter. When I take the computer back to my parents house it works and connects fine to the old network. If I unplug the antenna from the PCI adapter the PC works (no internet.) If I disconnect the power supply from N-Router the PC works fine (no internet.) But if I put the antenna back in or plug the N-router back in it immediately goes from being fine to the blue screen of death. Can anyone help?

Im becoming infinitely frustrated over this problem. Your help is immensely appreciated.

I have a linksys wireless adapter in my dell desktop. I have had no problems with this in the past 3-4 years. Over the last few days I had reformatted my computer and re-installed xp onto it. I then went to and downloaded the drivers for my specific computer. I burned those to a cd and installed them onto my desktop. Now I cannot connect to my router at all. I can see the connection and the signal it is giving, but it wont allow me to connect.

I am not all that good with computers and fixing them is not fun for me. Initially I went to to see if they could help me on their online chat support. They could not because after some minutes of generic questions they said that I had owned their product too long to recieve online support, they gave me a phone number to call their tech support.

Instead I called verizon to try and have them help me. I have verizon service and a verizon router. After 20 minutes of BS with them they said they could not help me and that it was most likely a problem with the linksys adapter and that I need to call linksys.

So they gave me the phone number for linksys and after 20 minutes of BS with them, they say that my adapter is out of warrenty and they cannot help me. I had 3 options with them. 1- go online to, 2- spend 34.99 for a one time charge for tech support and continue talking to this guy, 3- spend MORE money for ... Read more

I am having problems getting my sister's WXP Pro Dell to see the her new Linksys WRT54G.

Her home network was running fine with a Belkin 802.11b wireless router, but the wireless connection went down and could not be repaired (the laptop Orinoco PC card was not the problem) so we attached her laptop via Ethernet cable to the Belkin and everything worked fine. Dell has always been Ethernet cabled into the router. We then decided to go 802.11g and bought the Linksys WRT54g.

However, after swapping the WRT54G in, the Dell cannot see the Linksys, tho the laptop can connect with no problem. In Network Properties the Local Area Connection 3 icon is X'd. All TCP/IP settings are set to automatically obtain etc. Router is set to dynamic IP. There is nothing wrong with the cables. Swapping the old Belkin router back in restores connectivity.

It's a cheapie Dell that did not come with an Ethernet card so she bought a Belkin USB to Ethernet adaptor, that worked fine with the Belkin router. With the WRT54G, the Device Manager does not report any problem devices and the USB to Ethernet adapter is shown as working properly. Restarting the Dell after the WRT54G has been swapped in invariably brings up the Found new Hardware Wizard, tho she cannot figure out what has to be (re)installed. So I had her reinstall the Belkin USB to Ethernet adapter, even tho the Device Manager show's no problem. This does not help. Put the Belkin router back in the system and the Dell start... Read more

My father has a Windows XP and a Verizon Fios router and a Linksys Wireless Adapter. Sometimes the adapter works and sometimes it doesn't and he is at his wits end. It's hard for me to help him since I only have an iMac.. so my question is: what the heck is going on?!

He says that the icon says he has excellent strength but the webpages won't load, as they say he is not connected to the internet. He tried re-booting the computer and now it doesn't even say the adapter is connected. When he tries the "repair" it says it cannot be repaired because it cannot be disabled. The computer that is connected to the Verizon is working fine, along with the internet.

For reference: I live an hour away from him and have to do this over the phone with him. But, he does know how to work the computer so this is good.

I am not able to connect wireless to the internet. It has been working for years. Then several computers in the house stopped connecting and our xbox 360. After a few weeks the other computers and xbox started working. Our main computer kept internet connection, the one hooked up to the router, but all the wirelss stopped working. Now my wirelss desk top will not connect. I get the networking SSD to come up, but when I click to connect it pings then says not connected. I have re-entered the key several times, tried to set up the home networking again. Was wondering if I uninstall my linksys adapter program and re-install if this will help. Can anyone help me. I do not want to buy a new adapter if I don't need to. What is strange to me is, all the wireless computers stopped working at the same time and one by one the others started to reconnect. I really don't know if I messed things up by trying to run set up wizard several times. Thanks for your help.

You need to make sure the wireless card is set to get an IP address automatically. If it set to use DHCP, but is unable to get an address the IP address will appear as a 169.254.x.y address. If this happens, you probably need to make sure the wireless card's drivers are properly installed.

The router is connecting on the main floor of my access via the cable jack. The deskstop downstairs has a Linksys eternet adapter (sorry, don't know the type offhand). The laptop connects using a wireless card. My laptop is fine, connects to the internet but my desktop can not. The software that comes with Linksys states its connecting to the source but can not find the internet. I am getting a 169. IP address. I've tried powering down the router, reinstalling the adapter, purchasing a new adapter, IPCONFIG renew, etc. Nothing is working. I think its a setting problem but no one will help me with the WEB settings. Who assigns the passphrase? What is the SSID? Etc., etc.,

you need to set the default gate way on your pc to the default on the linksys..
you can acces a configuration window through a browser just enter the ip addres of the router as a url and this should bring up a configuration window..
the reason the laptop is fine is because the wireless card will pick up the gateway automatically you will need to set it on the pc which im presuming is wired to the router..

We just had a poweroutage for a about 2 seconds, when power came back up, the power light on the router (linksys wrt54g ver 7) started blinking. I unplugged the router, plugged the modem in, and started surfing the net for solutions. One solution I found was on this site. I started reading a thread with a similar problem. Basically, its telling me that the firmware on my router is corrupted and I need to updated it again but by using the tftp.exe program since I can no longer enter the GUI of the router. The instructions I red said I need to assign a static ip first on my computer but it requires the DNS of my router and apparently (according to the instructions I red on the thread here with the same problem) the only way I can get the DNS is to access the GUI of my router and copy it from there. Since I'm unable to do that, I can't set up a static address, I can't use the tftp.exe program (I can't find a site where I can download it anyway); well there's nothing to start until I get that DNS number. I was wondering if I have other options left. I also tried resetting it. It didn't work.

I don't believe you will be able to do this "out of the box", look at third party firmware like dd-wrt. Never used it myself but I've read it works fine.


It may be easier to run a cable to the second router and set them up with the same SSID and security.

Have them on different IP addresses and channels something like:

Router 1 channel 6

Router 2 channel 11

You won't get "true" roaming but when one signal is dropped the wireless unit will pick up the other automatically.... or one could simply manually change from one to the other depending where they are in the house and which signal is stronger.

Can I configure this WiFi router to pick up this signal or is it for broadcasting only? What would you call that 'recieveing-only' type of connection?

A:Can I use a Linksys WRT54 router as WiFi "adapter"?

Different ways in setting up your Linksys wireless router

5. Cascading your router
You can extend your existing wireless network by connecting two (2) routers which are capable of sharing network resources. This process is called cascading.

With cascading routers, you can improve the performance of the network without removing your older router and isolate the network traffic. For step-by-step instructions, click here.

NOTE: Linksys routers cannot be used as wireless repeaters, bridges or media connectors. If you want to extend the signal and improve the performance of your wireless network, you will need a wireless range extender (RE1000 or RE2000) or a wireless media connector

Linksys WRT54 manual (PDF)

Why not negotiate hooking up your router to your neighbor's network? That would isolate his use of wireless from your use. Or just pick the signal - with permission.

This of course implies that your neighbor is inclined to share their resource.

Short story even shorter, there was a semi-power outage this morning (lights were very dim but power wasn't totally off), and when the power came back on my router stopped working. Here's what I know:

-The WLAN LED is no longer lit so there's no wireless. That orange CiscoSystems button is no longer glowing orange either if that means much.

-For some odd reason a wired connection through any of the ethernet ports on the router no longer works either, though the LED's still light up when connected, along with the internet LED.

-The modem works fine, I'm connected to the internet directly from the modem right now.

-I've tried to reset the router, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

-I've tried to access the router config settings, and the page doesn't load.

-I've tried to look up the routers ip address through the command prompt but when I enter the command "ipconfig" when I'm wired through the router I always get the response something along the lines of "media disconnected". When I try the command when connected directly to the modem the default gateway ip address comes up as ''. This doesn't work either.

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.
No matter what I do, disable dhcp on linksys router, set linksys router on the dsl modem router to DMZ, set linksys router to bridge mode.....
nothing seems to work.

All I want to do is configure the linksys router so that when I go to my internet explorer on my laptop and type in " to connect to the cam's. But when I go to linksys router config. pages to see the status, the internet ip is which is a LAN address assi... Read more

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

I recently got qwest DSL and I configured my Wireless to work and accept my wireless MAC Address, but when I plug it into the WAN slot in the Linksys router it doesn't work. I went to linksys site and did their configuration which is changing the router LAN IP to, then power cycling, but this doesn't help. I cannot access the internet still. Both the modem/router and the router are operating DHCP, but if I disable the modem/router, I cannot access the wireless function, and if I disable the DHCP on my Linksys router, I cannot obtain an IP from the modem router via the linksys router.

This is frustrating lol.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I own a business that offers free Wi-Fi to customers. Originally I had the blue linksys wireless G router hooked up to the booster on the roof. At another location, I just got a Netgear wireless N router, and that worked way better than the linksys. So I got another Netgear router, and installed it in the first location- but I'd like to hook it up to the booster. The guy at Fry's said that the Netgear router will not hookup to the booster- I'd have to hook the Netgear to the linksys, disable something on the linksys, and then the linksys to the booster.
So, my question is, how do I do that?

My network needs to connect to 6 wired PCs and 1 wireless PC.

Right now the Linksys 4 port router connects to the ADSL modem and 4 PCs -and I want to add a new Belkin wireless router to provide a wireless LAN access and have 2 add'l LAN ports.

Therefore, can I, and how do I configure the devices, so that the ADSL modem would go into the Linksys router; the Linksys would provide LAN connection to 3 PCs and the 4th port would go to the input of the Belkin router, which in term would provide wireless access and 3 more LAN ports?

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

My new home has is pre-wired and uses a UStec TP-IPR8 Router (<>) to share my broadband connection with every room in the house and provide a home networking environment.

I want to add my Linksys WAP54G Wireless Router (<>) onto the network so that I can connect wirelessly too.

Can anyone help me out with the appropriate settings for the Linksys and/or the TP-IPR8 so that I can accomplish my goal??? They don't seem to want to cooperate for me!

Thanks in advance,

A:UStec TP-IPR8 Router and Linksys 54G Wireless Router

First Step: Plug a computer to the Wireless Router, change the IP address of the wireless router so that it's in the same subnet as the main Router (the one that is connected to the Internet Modem); give it an IP that doesn’t conflict with the main router's base IP address, or the DHCP server range. This will ensure that you can reach the admin server of the old router from any LAN machine, and that the Wireless Clients IPs are assigned correctly.

For Example:

- Main Router’s base address is, with a DHCP server range of to

- Set the Cable/DSL Router to (the one you're using as an Access Point) base address to any IP address between to

Second Step: Switch Off the DHCP on the Wireless Cable/DSL Router.

Plug the Wireless Router to the main Router. Regular Port to Regular Port, using crossover cable (or straight patch if one port is an Uplink or auto-sensing).

The WAN input of the Wireless Router should stay open, do not connect any thing to the WAN input of the secondary router.

The problem I am having is getting the wireless router to work with the DSL router. The DSL router is a Siemens SpeedStream 5890 (Bridge Router). I believe it is also the modem. The phone line goes directly to the router. I can get intenet if I plug into one of the ports on the back (there are 4 (5) of them).

One of the computers is directly hooked up to the 5890. My laptop is currently hooked up too, although, I would like to be able to use the wireless so I can get on the internet anywhere in the house.

A:DSL modem router to Linksys wireless router

If the Linksys's WAN had any configuration other than "dynamic connection" to work with your previous service, you will need to change that.

If both routers are using the same LAN subnet (192.168.1.x?) you will need to

a. change one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x),
b. bridge the modem/router to make it work as a modem only, and then do whatever configuration is needed to connect to your DSL service, or
c. configure the Linksys as a switch and wireless access point.

While (a) is probably the quickest and easiest short term solution, either of the other two are preferable unless you have a need for cascaded routers. Solution (c) is ...

According to the manage networks program on the computer, the device is disabled, but when I click to enable it, nothing happens.

Start with the model of the router, and the type of Internet service you have, cable or DSL.

If you open a command prompt (DOS window), and type:


The gateway address is the address of the broadband router. If you paste that address into the IE address window, you should be able to access the router's setup page.

I'm curious about "deactivating the device firewall", since the "firewall" protection of most SOHO broadband routers is primarily the NAT layer, which can't be deactivated. What exactly are you trying to accomplish by turning off a firewall?

Has anyone found a driver that will run this adapter under win7? I have the SRX version with the 3-foot antenna and a triple antenna. Under XP it pulled in connections from the far side of the 12 story, 200 unit brick and steel apartment building on the other side of a 200-foot wide road. Now it's a paperweight.

I am pretty disgusted with Cisco Linksys. The adapter was perhaps the very best available for XP. It was also one of the most expensive - but it worked so well it was worth it. But now that have simply walked away from the card. No driver for Win7.

This is a "G" card so the service is not obsolete.

I will never buy another item from Cisco. The risk of being orphaned again is too great.

Meanwhile, if someone has a solution to this situation, I'd appreciate hearing it.

I am a network newbie. I had my Linksys wireless adapter working fine on my W98 PC connecting to an SMC wireless router. I decided to change the routers default SSID name and enable MAC filtering so I hooked up my other PC via ethernet cable to the router and did so. Went to my W98 PC and changed the SSID name using the Linksys wireless LAN Monitor SW and after rebooting W98 I got connected. Did same on my other PC (XP) and it connected. Went back to W98 PC, updated my Norton NAV 4 virus files and updated to newest level of ZoneAlarm Free (both from Internet) and everything was fine. Returned to W98 PC later and couldn't connect to Internet but could connect to router. THe LAN Monitor was then showing two wireless adapters, both with excellent signal strength, but one had a blank SSID name and the other had the new SSID name and some unreadable appended characters. Being totally stumped I decided to uninstall the wireless adapter software, unplug the adapter, and re-install (Lan Monitor and adapter network sw) using the Linksys install CD. After installing SW, plugged in the adapter and the LAN monitor (WUS11B) errored with page fault!!! I need help!!

I have a linksys adapter WUSB54 G ver.4 connected to my computer. It have been there for about 1 to 2 years. Well, one day I come home and the internet is disconnected. I try and fix it, but I can so I uninstall the software and the adapter in the port it was in. I have done this about 15 times on this computer and other ones. When installing the software and windows logo pop up and says this hasn't been digitally encypied or something with windows xp and if installed it might harm the computer. This has never popped up before, so I was very confused. So I clicked ok anyway and let it install. When it got to the point were the adapter installs itself on the computer. The computer restarted. When it got to the welcome sign it restarted again and never fully rebooted. I took the adapter usb out of the usb slot and the computer started working fine again. Know everytime I put the adapter in and enter the wep code the computer restarts like stated above. So I uninstalled the software again and this time there was no logo. It worked fine, but still has the problem. So the main problem is everything the adpater usb cord goes in the computer restarts.

Hey guys,

I recently installed Windows XP Home on my computer that was previously running 98SE. I'm using a Linksys Wireless-B PCI Card to connect wirelessly to my network. For months its worked fine, but now with XP, the card doesn't want to work. I can connect to the internet for maybe 5 minutes, then the connection breaks down. I've got a Wireless-G router, which is compatible with the Wireless-B card. I think that the problem may have something to do with Windows XP's built in wireless network program, but I'm still not sure. I'll try to boot my machine up on 98 today to see if that may be the problem.

Thanks again,

A:Linksys Wireless-B PCI Adapter Trouble

G'day Campbell685, these kinds of problems are nothing new to WXP, especially if you have loaded SP-2 over the top.
It often affects USB's as well, most especially on machines with AMD processors.
There are some notes on MS's boards about it but it appears the problem is due to drivers being affected somehow.
I have addressed some of these odd types of problems by using Johnwill's suggestion of slipstreaming WXP with SP-2 and finding things then worked again on at least one problem board..
The slipstreaming program mixes both the raw WXP and the SP-2 and you then make a new modified installation disk. You will need a burner and use a slow speed to ensure the burn is good.
A bit of a pain having to do it but it certainly does help with odd unexplainable problems.
The program I used was "Autostreamer" Google should find it, it is a freebee.
I placed the SP-2 on the hard drive and combined from there.
The destructions are simple and it is a worthy exercise.
Cheers, qldit.

I recently moved into a new apartment, and I found that I can pick up my landlady's internet on my laptop, so i bought a LINKSYS WIRELESS G ADAPTER WUSB54GSC and installed it into my computer. The install went fine, and when it comes on, it says that it is connected to the internet. But when i open up internet explorer, it reads "Cannot display page offline." and when the linksys is connected to the internet, the little networking icon with the two tvs says its disconnected, and visa versa.

I don't know what else to do.
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition on an HP comp.

Ok, so everything i try to connect to my wireless network with my desktop using my wusb600n adapter, everything works perfectly for about 30 seconds, and then nothing. webpages stop loading, and online games stop working.

like even know I loaded this page, and will have to repair the connection by the time im done writing this. its really annoying because I haven't changed anything with my computer in a month and it was working fine like 3 days ago.

im really not sure, i tried disabling my firewall, but it still works for 30 seconds then stops.

i tried closing my anti virus, but still nothing (however it still has a background process running.

i read other threads on this adapter, but none of them solved my problem.

im really stumped.

I have a WPC54G Version 1.2 Adapter that I have previously used with XP. I recently accuirred a laptop on to which I loaded XP along with all the latest hotfixes. Now when I attempt to load the adapter driver fro the CD or from the latest driver dowload from the Linksys site XP tells me that it can't locate the drive for the device. I get the same results if I have it search the internet. I spent a very frustrating hour on the phone with Linksys tech support with junior and senior techs. They kept asking to connect the laptop to my router via a ethernet cabel and have my wireless adapter plugged into the laptop ayt the same time so they could run their diagonostic utiity. I could not get them to undersatnd that it is physically impossibe to isntall both at the same time. Somehow I can't help but think this may be related to a windows update

Hi, I just put windows 7 on my Dell Dimension E510 and it is awesome. I am having the problem of getting the wireless adapter Model No. WUSB11 ver. 2.6 to find the access point which is only 20 feet away. I used this for about 2 years no problem on xp. Then i switched to xp black edition no problem. After installing 7 I have installed the adapter to my pc and it is not finding anything. As of right now I have the Ethernet cable plugged in which is pretty sweet and fast but, i rather keep that in my ps3 lol. I really have no idea how to get this to find the router again but i will say, i have lost the installation cd but installed it off of the linksys site. Any help would be sweet, thanks.

I have a Compaq Presario 2100 laptop here, running XP Home. I just installed the linksys wcf11 v.4 wireless-b adapter on the Compaq, with the latest drivers from the linksys site. I have a linksys wireless-g router with WPA-PSK, TKIP encryption on the traffic, already functional with an emachines laptop with a wireless-g card.

I can't configure the Compaq to connect to the network: there are no other encryption options than WEP. I tried downloading a bunch of windows updates, since the laptop owner hasn't kept up. The laptop is extremely slow so i didn't make sure i got ALL of them. Is there one in particular i should be looking for? Is it a problem with XP? With the Computer?

My question is: can this adapter (w/ this computer) support WPA? If so, how do i get the option to show up?

Also, what are the consequences of using a b computer on a g network?

A:WPA with linksys wcf11 v.4 wireless-b adapter

WPA is a new wireless security standard, and no, it is not compatible with WEP. Unless the card's mfg has released drivers that will allow the card to participate in a WPA wireless network, you would have to change the Access Point's configuration to use WEP, and the other laptop(s) to also use WEP. This isn't advised, but it is possible.

I'd suggest making the laptop's owner shell out for a G card that can participate in WPA.

As for a B card participating in a G network, the B card will obviously be slower when connecting/transfering data on the local network, it shouldn't have too much of an effect on the G equipment, but it is another device in a shared medium network, each additional device means less bandwidth available for all participants.

If the computers are just used to connect to the internet, The B card's performance should be nearly identical to the G equipment. The only caveat to that is since you mentioned that laptop was older and slower, it will be slower to process the incoming information, so it may give the appearance of being slower, but that's a function of the processor, not the network. Both B, and G are much faster than most consumer internet connections; it's the internet connection that is going to rule how fast the pages appear.

I have a Linksys WUSB54GS wireless adapter connected to an HP PC running XP Home. I also have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router connected to a cable modem. The wireless router works great all through the house with my home laptop and my office laptop when I bring it home.
The problem is with the usb adapter on the PC. It says that I have an excellent and strong signal but I cannot connect to the internet. If I snake a 100 ft long ethernet cable through the house, I can connect the PC instantly to the internet. Then I can disconnect the ethernet cable and remain connected with the usb wireless adapter. If I reboot, it says it is connected to the network with a strong signal but cannot find the Internet. I have tried several uninstalls and reinstalls. No change. On rare occasions, it will find the internet. I have moved the wireless router around but cannot get any better signal on the wireless adapter on the PC - it is shown as strong and excellent.
I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

Hey everyone, sorry to bother you all with a question, but this is my last resort.

My problem is a Network Key that has been set up on all computers in the house. Our connection used to be open to anyone in the area (not on purpose) and was just recently changed. Now a key is required to gain access.

However, FFXI has now blocked me out, for lack of better words. The thing I noticed, is my Linksys Gaming Adapter is unlit on the right box, meaning it is unable to find a connection. I'm clueless how to work the Gaming Adapter, since it usually finds the channel with the connection, thought none of the channels connect.

Is there anyway I can fix it for FFXI? If not, would anyone know how to disable the Network Key and allow it to be open again?

Thanks for checking out this post, it is greatly appreciated

I can give pretty much any other additional info you require, Thanks Again.

I recently purchased a wireless router and a wireless usb adapter to make a wirless network between 2 computers. The guy in the store told me I could mix and match as long as they were both compatible with 802.11 or something to that effect. Well the usb adapter is a linksys model # WUSB11-CA ver. 2.5 and the router is a hawking model # WR254S
I got the wireless router hooked up and the computer hard wired into it - computer 1 with the dsl modem - is accessing the internet so everything seems fine on that end. On computer # 2 there is no connection. Part of the problem could be the installation cd inluded with the linksys usb adapter? I run the installation program to install drivers, etc. and I get an error box that says: Unhandled Exception, Error Number: 0x80070725, Description: Incompatible version of the RPC Stub, Setup will now terminate. Before it was also saying w32n50.dll was missing but since I ran the firmware from the linksys website that has stopped.
If you have any ideas on how to solve this problem I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks, Trevor

I would totally remove the Linksys USB adapter from the system. Remove the driver.

Then plug straight into your router with that computer and download the drivers for the USB adapter direct from the Linksys website. Then try the whole shabang again.

My ISP issued me a new modem/router and the LAN side is and the Linksys router that I need for port forwarding is also the series. Is there a way to use the Linksys router with the modem router? The modem router is an ADSL that has the encapsulation settings and the ISP's specific settings in it. It is a lot different than any of the AT&T modems that I have used. The ISP is a small company that is protected from the AT&Ts of the country, so it's their way or no way. Any help is appreciated! Alan

A:IP segments on router and Linksys router

Basically three choices, in no particular order ...

a. "Bridge" the modem/router to make it operate as a modem only. If you have (A)DSL this will probably mean that you have to configure the WAN section of the Linksys for PPPoE and your account/password.

b. Change the IP subset for the LAN on one router (e.g., to 192.168.3.x).

c. JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

I have a new VoIP service, and because of that, I use a Linksys Broadband RT31P2 router, included with the service. The computer which is connected to this router works perfectly fine, and so does the phone. Everything works fine, but I now want that router (Linksys) to provide wireless access to a laptop.

The problem is that the laptop is not picking up a signal from the router, and the router configuration page has no option to "send" a signal for wireless connection. I am starting to think that the Linksys Broadband RT31P2 router is not meant for wireless access, or it would have this option, and make a mention of wireless access.
