Connect A Linksys Adapter To A Netgear Router

How do you connect a linksys adapter to a netgear router ?


You don't. You connect the adapter to your computer. The brands of adapters and routers don't matter as networks are standards based, not proprietary to any particular manufacturer. Edit: once you've installed the adapter just run the wireless management app and select your wireless network. It does not matter what brand the router is.

Linksys Wmp54g Wireless Router / Adapter Problem

I have a linksys wrt54g router which is 3 years old and have a linksys wmp54g wireless adapter that i am using to connect to the internet via wireless. I am currently having problems connecting to online games. Thinking that my router was the problem, i attempted to connect to another wireless network and join an online game. I was able to connect, but was having the same problems ( lag spikes and disconnects ) as my wireless network and it has about 40% less signal strength than my wireless signal. But here is the odd part. When i connected to my network again and joined the same game, the lag gets even worse than it was from the weaker signal and i was getting 98% signal strength. And 90% of the time, the game would eventually crash to the desktop when it attempts to connect to a server. Internet browsers are also starting to be affected. Sometimes websites load normally. But from now and then, i would have to refresh the webpage because it is starting to take quite a long time to load a webpage which would of taken me a few seconds to load rather than a minute. There also some delays when webpages are loading and then the webpage would eventually load normally after a abnormal 5-10 second delay. Would this be a sign for me to get a new router and wireless adapter? If so, what do you recommend?

At&t Dsl Modem And Netgear Router Cant Connect To Internet

I have at&t dsl, and yesterday i replaced my ailing linksys wireless router with a new netgear n150 wireless router. After installing the router, and getting everything (seemingly) running, i tried to access the internet. I was redirected to an at&t "password update" page that told my there was a discrepancy between my network password and the password i was using to access the internet. It sent me through a "self-solve" application that didn't solve anything, and then told me to call tech support. I've called at&t tech support (a few times), and they have told me that they can't troubleshoot third party routers, but they have reset my password so that i can access the internet without using my router, just using the modem. This isn't very helpful, since the majority of internet usage in my house is done wirelessly. After researching this issue and trying many remedies i find myself still ending up on this stupid password update page. The only thing i can guess is that this might have something to do with the "dsl password decoupling" thing that at&t put into effect in june. Is there any help out there for me?

Netgear Router Isnt Connecting

I have a netgear router that i plug into my xbox to connect to xbox live. I always have everything that needs to be plugged in to connect to xbox live (the plug for the router, the cable, and the network cord to connect into my xbox and the router. And xbox live gold membership). The problem is. My router suddenly shut off. I turned it back on and everything lit up except for the cable signal. Ive tried unscrewing and screwing back in the cables, unplugging and replugging in everything, restarting my router and xbox and nothing is working for the cable signal to show up. The picture of the router. (Its white) the connection is great, i just need to know what i have to do in order for the cable signal to show up.

How To Open Ports On Netgear Router?

Answer:- as for opening ports that information is going to be usually for gaming or p2p at least most times and for details like that need to know what model you are using. Because the firmware will be different from model to model and i do not know if you are using an old or new model. Maybe it's old and you have updated the firmware in it. If you are not doing a wireless network then just run the ethernet cables to each computer.netgear will provide you with a cd or manual to help you setup things. Since you did not state if it's a wireless netgear router what i will is mainly give you information on that. Are you trying to setup a wired and wireless connection?

Wireless protected access is a lot more secure than wep and most internet service providers (isp) are only giving support for that. Wep has already been hacked about three years ago and it really is interesting the answers you get if you ask them to support or help with configuring a wpa or wpa-2 wifi connection. Back from eating dinner. Btw. You don't want to open all ports that would be a security issue its a lot better to know what ports to open and only open them. You do not need to tell anyone what ports you are opening, because anyone seeing your question with that info could take advantage of your netgear and computer.

Netgear Router Connected With Limited Access

Laptop will not connect to wireless router but computer and phone are connected. I am using vista on my laptop and the wireless internet icon at the bottom right is showing that its not connected. However when i click on it to 'connect or disconnect' it says that i am connected to my netgear router with limited access. This is only happening to my laptop and it isn't anything to do with my internet provider as the wireless is connected to the main family computer and also my blackberry phone. Im thinking that some settings might have been changed on my laptop and this is why it is not working?

I have tried restarting my laptop, disconnecting and connecting again, removing the network connection and then starting from scratch adding it and entering in the pass code. Am i going to have to reboot my whole laptop and wipe everything and start from the very beginning?

Linksys Router Issues

We have a linksys wrt54g router which has worked great and with little problems. However, we had a storm not long ago and it caused comcast (our internet service provider) to have trouble with their towers and the signal wasn't sent. After the storm and the comcast problems were fixed our router settings were changed and none of the computers in our house could get internet. I then went into our wireless settings and set everything back to factory settings under the administration tab and held the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds but still nothing. The computers that are connected say they only get local access and will not connect to the internet. I disconnected everything and did the power cycles as i read to do online but still just local access. I then even decided to try to connect one of our laptops through the linksys routers ethernet ports on the back and still the same thing. The only way i can get online like i am now is to disconnect the router and plug the ethernet cord connected to the laptop directly into the comcast modem. What is wrong with our router?

Can it be fixed or is it fried? The only reason i don't believe it to be fried is it happened to my girlfriend and she called a computer tech guy who was at her house for about an hour and eventually got it going. What should i do i don't want to call the guy cause he's expensive any solutions or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Cannot Secure Linksys Router

When i try set linksys secured. I open the set up page sign in as admin, click the wireless tab, change router name to a unique name then save the settings all is ok. Next step i go to wireless security section go into the security mode drop down box and select wep and change the setting to 128 bits 26 hex digits. I then create a pass-phrase and click generate. At this point i select save settings and it will sit there for awhile saving then instead of the successful box coming up a black screen appears with the white box in the center with no radio buttons to select. If i close the page try to connect to the et i get a request for a password. When i input the new passphrase is says they are mismatched. The same thing happens if i try adminĚ as the phrae. I have tried this both with an ethernet cable or without with the same results. I have also tried it with and without disabling ssid broadcast.

Port Forwarding And A Linksys Router

I'm using a linksys wrt54g with v8. 00. 2 firmware. I'm trying to set up port forwarding for azureus. As it is now i can upload fine, but my past history was all lost and uploading has gone to ***. I went from having a 1. 5 ratio of seeding to leeching to . 5. I looked up how to set things up at, but came across 1 problem not talking about on the site. When i go to my routers web page to set up the forwarding and go to uncheck "block anonymous internet request" it also unchecks "filter ident(port 113). On they still have filter check with anon net request unchecked. I'm wondering if the filter doesn't matter and i can go ahead with setting up the ports?

Linksys Router Internet Problem

I have been having internet problems here recently. Well, i have been having internet problems for a while but i can't pinpoint when they started coming about. I have been running pretty much the same setup for about five years now and for the most part had little to no problems with it. The only thing i have replaced is the router. I have only one cable line ran into my room so i have to use a splitter so that i can have internet and television. I know i should have one line ran for each but as i said before it was working find for a long time. The old router i had was a linksys, i cant remember the model but it was the blue one with the speed booster and with it i had no problems. For a while now my connection has been running okay but not great but i could deal with it. I was getting pretty consistent results when running a internet speed test. I was in kmart the other day and i saw a signal booster for cable and figured i would give it a try when hooking it up the router fell from where i had it and hit the ground. When i went to get on the xbox and play online i was getting horrible lag spikes and i figured it was something to do with the signal booster so i took it off and put it back the way i had it. I went and ran a speed test and now i'm getting horrible lag spikes. We have 6 meg connection but when i run the test it says anywhere from 6 to 25. I have been trying to run down the problem but i can't figure it out. It's so bad now that even youtube videos are having trouble loading and when they do load up im getting a laggy video. Before i could watch a youtube video in 720p even 1080p without a problem. I hardwired my xbox to the modem and bypassed the router to see if it would still lag and when doing that i have no problem. My question is could dropping the router have messed something up? I don't have the money to go throw down on a new router and that not even be the problem.

Connecting Linksys Router To Comcast Modem

We recently upgraded to comcast high-speed internet from our existing at&t. The tech guy that came only installed internet on one computer. Note: using comcast's modem directly hooked up to the computer worked fine. The problem is that we have two computers. So set it up using a router the same way that worked while using at&t. Modem <-> router <-> computer

After setting it up, it searched for an ip but was unable to find one. I am sure the router works fine because i had no problems while using it with at&t's internet. Without an ip, i can't configure the modem to communicate with the router, using a web browser. Any input on how i can fix this or what i am doing wrong is much appreciated. Modem - arris tm602g/ct
Router - linksys befsr41 v. 2

Linksys Wireless Router Stopped Working

I have a linksys wag200g wireless router. It is connected by wire to a desktop and wireless to a laptop. The wireless has suddenly stopped working - internet still works perfectly fine on desktop!

I just spent an hour on the phone to a linksys "support" person. They came to the conclusion that it was a problem with my laptop not the internet as it was not showing up under wireless connections. However this is not the case as there is no wireless internet available on my ipod touch either (which i use internet on quite frequently). I have since managed to get the wireless internet to show up on both the laptop and ipod touch, however still neither of them will actually connect to it!

I've tried googling the problem but found no helpful answers. It's important that i have internet on my laptop! Hopefully someone can help without me having to stuff around with too many settings in fear of making the desktop internet go too.

Usb Wireless Adapter Wont Connect

I went to a clients house today, he has a windows xp machine running off a cable modem, and a wireless linksys router. I purchased a netgear usb wireless adapter, with excellent range, i installed cd rom software, and can see the wireless router sending off a signal at 65% bouncing to around 40%. When i connect, it either says limited connection or no connectivity. I reset the router, checked the wep password, etc, still cant get it to work. He says another tech came over awhile back and had the same issue and couldn't figure out why they could not get a successful connection. I to am having this trouble and would like to fix it soon! What should i do? Buy an actual router for his dell desktop to connect to the other router? If so will i have the same issue? What type of problems can this be caused by? And what are my options?
