Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Installed In Windows 7 Machine - Dropping Internet Connection?
Mar 4, 2012
I am having problems after installing the ae2500 adapter in my win 7 machine had to remove malwarebytes and avg to get it to work but now it constantly has problems dropping the internet connection. I have to disable the adapter then enable it to reconnect to the internet. Are there other compatibility problems with this setup that I need to address?
What are the maximum number of AE2500 wireless adapters can be installed on a PC running Windows XP SP3 using the windows wireless zero configuration? Recently I'm working on a program that needs multiple seperate wireless connections on a Windows XP SP3 PC. Each wireless adaptor is given a static IP address to respond to traffic at some specific ports. I can install four AE2500 adaptors without problem, but it disconnects the first AE2500 device when I plug in the fifth AE2500 adapter. I've tried on different windows XP machines. They all get the same problem. I wonder if it is a limitation in the AE2500 driver.BTW I've also tried to install an Valet AM10 adaptor as the fifth adapter, it seems ok. Yet installing more AM10 adapters beyond the fifth (4 AE2500 + 1 AM10) requires some luck. It may disconnect the other AM10 devices when I plug in another AM10 adapter.
I get the following error when running the setup executable downloaded from this site:
Error description: Adapter can't be Found Model name: AE1200/AE2500 Operating system: Windows 7 SP 1 Software version: 188.8.131.52 Motherboard is an asus p7p55
I have tried all 8 usb ports on the back of my computer and the 2 case ports. Non of them detect the adapter when running the setup executable. I have no other usb devices connected. Windows 7 was installed on this machine at the begining of this month. I have attempted to install the AE2500 on another windows 7 pc and it installed with no problems. I suspect the problem is the motherboard.
It's a Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine with a (newly installed) Asus P8H67 pro motherboard and an Edimax ew-7612pln pci-e card, the router is a thompson 585v8 router with the latest firmware on (upgraded as part of troubleshooting). I upgraded the wireless card drivers one time whilst it was disconnected, it appeared to work for a few hours but then dropped again it also went through a phase of connecting to the router as an 'unidentified network' with no internet access although I don't believe it was attaining an IP address. When it was connected the internet was pretty slow and anything like a file down load would knock it off completely. There were no errors at the time of disconnection in the event log (bar a DNS error or two saying it could not locate the website I was trying to get to before it failed), however the only information type events I noted were a few services stopping and starting and an odd one regarding the host not being able to find the 'master browser' which was identified as another laptop on the wireless network.
The machines are not in the same work group or in a domain, all other laptops and devices on the network work fine and are very stable - as was this one up until a couple of weeks ago. I've uninstalled a couple of pieces of software that were recently installed ; VMware player (which added virtual NICs upon installation and funnily enough made the wireless reconnect after a few hours of downtime upon installation...but the effect was shortlived) and some asus mobo utilities.
I got the AE2500 Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter. It connects just fine but it seems to like to disconnect on me. Mainly seems to do it when playing online games and testing out speed test.net It does "Download" test fine, "Upload" test is iffy. Sometimes I can run the test 1-2 times sometimes three times, but seems to always drop connection on one of the "upload" tests.
So I just got hooked up to the internet via qwest the other day with my room mate. We have a wireless modem (PK5000) and he's using the AE2500 usb adapter to get online. Now, he can get online, but if he ever turns off or sleeps his computer, he can't connect when he turns it back on. His computer can see the network, full signal, but when he tries to connect it says cannot connect and under troubleshoot options suggests we should move his computer closer to the modem, but its only about 20 feet away and shows full signal. To get it to work, we need to go into the modem config and reset the wireless options. No changes are made, just scroll to the bottom and click apply, and presto change he can connect with no problems.He's running windows 7 home edition 64 bit. The modem's security is WPA/WPA2.
New Win-7 machine set up. I used the printer set-up wizard to install a networked printer in the new machine with absolutely no problem. Proved it would print from that machine.Now, I get a call informing me that her old XP machine, which had been printing to the network printer with no problems, will no longer print.Documents go into the print queue, but they don't get printed.No error messages show up.I did some messing around via remote access, and finally removed the printer with the intention of reinstalling it.Scanning for network printers turned up several redundant instances of the same printer with different names. Some are identified as "invalid" some a "access denied". Bottom line. I can't get any of the selections to install.On the Win-7 machine I did find a window that indicated that the printer is designated as being shared, but I didn't explicitly set it for sharing when I installed it. Also, I somehow got to a window that told me that for printers that were to be shared with other versions of windows I could optionally install drivers to support such machines. Didn't have the driver disk handy and took the window down. Now I can't even find it again.I need sorting this all out.Part of the problem is that out there in "network land" there are redundant remnants of previous installations that are being remembered inappropriately.
I can't connect on my 2500 on my xp system. I just wiped the drive and did a fresh install on everything due to a virus. I updated xp/ and drivers and installed the ae2500 drivers. When I try to log on it starts to and shows connected however, it tells me "windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network" I noticed that this system has the same ae2500 with windows vista and uses wpa2-personal, aes. The xp system only has options for wpa-personal, aes. Is this the problem or is it something else?
Windows 8 on a desktop with Linksys AE3000 wireless adapter. I sometimes start losing packets when pinging to my router. Here is an example:[URL] Now using my tablet with builtin wireless adapter (same location as the desktop) I got this result [URL] the problem is not my router If I restart Windows 8 desktop, the problem is fixed and pings are back to normal. However, next day I get the same problem back (until I restart Windows again).I have tried three different wireless adapters but it's the same problem with all of them.
I have a Cisco Linksys WRT120N wireless router in one bedroom. On another bedroom which is hardly 15 feet away, I have set up my laptop to connect to it via a Cisco Linksys AE1000 wireless USB adapter. There are two thick walls between one bedroom and another.
Neverthess I find AE1000 dropping connection all the time. There are times I unplug the laptop and take into the same room as my router but it still doesn't connect. The wireless strength constantly varies from Very Good to Excellent but no matter what I try AE1000 never connects to it. If I restart my laptop, sometimes it does connect.
All in all its very frustrating that two Cisco products can't communicate effectively with each other.
P.S: I have both my ASUS tablet and my verizon droid both connecting to the wireless router from the same room as my laptop without any issues.
I'm using the WUSB54GSC on a IBM Desktop computer, not old, but not new by any means. We have wireless internet through Comcast, and my room is on the second floor. The router is on the first floor, but it's almost just underneath my room. The internet seems to connect completely fine, but it will disconnect at some things. For example, when I tried to go to mapquest, it was like it was flooding, and it dropped the internet connection. I also play games online, and when I play the actual game itself (GTAA/Online) it plays just fine, no lag, nothing like that, but when I try to connect to Teamspeak, when it's loading the channels after it connects, it just drops the connection..
I've recently bought an AE2500 wireless adapter, and I've had problems setting it up, I've checked my port drivers versions and they're all up to date, I have looked over countless websites figuring out why it is doing this, my computer is a Windows Vista, and my last resort is formatting the computer, I've been here for countless hours trying to get this to work, when I run the disk with the adapter, it gets stuck at "Detecting Adapter" and ends up coming up with "Cannot find wireless adapter" or something really close to that. I've tried switching it to all of my USB ports, and nothing is working!
I just moved an older Windows XP Desktop /w Service Pack 3 from my parent's house over to mine after having my laptop fail on me. It was previously connected wirelessly at their house with a Microsoft MN-510 wireless adapter. When I got it up and running at my house, it was not picking up any networks with the MN-510. So I picked up a new AE2500 today, thinking that the ancient MN-510 may be the problem. Plugged it in, threw in the disc and voila, it started picking up Networks. The problem is, It is not connecting to my Network. The router is a Motorola SBG901. I have already disabled the security on the router and made sure that the MAC Filtering is disabled, but it is still not connecting. There has been no other issues with connecting any of our other devices.
i am using a Linksys AE2500 and it will randomly disconnect. the bar icon on the bottom right shows a yellow icon over it. running the tool to reconnect does not reconnect me to the internet, i have to reboot my computer.
I recently upgraded my router to the Linksys E4200 and setup a 40MHz connection using Channels 44+48 of the 5Ghz spectrum. This works really well on my wife's Lenovo T420 w/Centrino 2x2 and Windows 7. I get over 100Mbit sustained performing CIFS file transfers from my file server. My SSID for 5Ghz is different from 2.4 so I can easily verify which one I'm connected to.
I wanted to do the same on my laptop which is a bit older (Lenovo T410) and only supported 2.4Ghz. So I bought the new Cisco AE2500 802.11n USB adapter and plugged it into a USB2.0 slot (I believe all slots are USB 2.0 on this laptop). I'm using the latest driver from the Cisco website.
Windows XP reports a connection speed of "300Mbit" just like on the my wife's laptop -- but when I do the same CIFS file transfer my transfer rate is "stuck" at 39mbit download (13% of 300) and for uploads I'm getting 16-17% of 300 (approx 48Mbit).
I've tried fiddling with all manner of advanced settings in the Windows driver for the NIC with no avail. No matter what, it's like I'm capped at exactly 39 Mbit.
I tried reviewing the specs of the AE2500 and it says it has two antenna's per band. I assumed this meant it was 2x2? Is this not the case. Is it 1x1? Could this explain it? Or, does it matter which 5Ghz channels I use -- from the AE2500 spec sheet it seemed like it might not support all 5Ghz frequencies?
While 39Mbit is better than the 17-20Mbit I was getting on 802.11g, given how well my wife's laptop works using the Intel NIC it seems something is lacking with the AE2500 or its driver.
I have tried numerous times to install the disk and the adapter, but it always says it cannot locate the adapter. I know that the ports (I have tried them all) are working properly because they have been in use. I tried the chat. He suggested I call the 1-800 number. I don't have time to wait on hold forever, which I did anyway until I finally hung up.
I have 3 computers all running Windows 7 64bit. I had to move my desktop computer to a different room with no ethernet connection so I purchased a Linksys AE2500 usb wireless adapter for it. My router/modem is a Actiontec 2000 which came with my internet. When I have my desktop on and connected to the internet it slows down all the computers on the network and it is really slow. My question is do I have something installed wrong? I used the driver for teh adapter from this site and nothing else has changed.
desktop with Windows 7. It is connected to the internet in my office thru Uverse (AT&T). We previously had a standard router, but upgraded since it seemed to be moving too slow. This problem with the adapter existed then also and we thought maybe it was too many computers slowing down the router.The adapter works great until I try to open certain websites. Then it loses its mind. I get a popup that says "Dial Up Connection" and wants me to choose to connect or work offline. When I click connect, I get a second window that says "Connecting through WAN Miniport", but it never actually connects to the page. Then lastly, a third popup says it has an error connecting and wants to redial and starts a countdown. But again, it never connects to the page.
I recently moved to a building that does not have wired Internet access. Upon the recommendation I purchased a Linksys AEE 2500 USB wireless adapter. I am unable to install the software which means, of course, I am unable to access any of the settings.The setup initializes, shows me the wireless network available (it has a locked padlock symbol next to a), and prompts me for the encryption key. It accepts the key and it's at this point the setup stalls. It shows the "attempting to connect to network" screen then, after whatever interval the software is set for before it times out, I get a notification that setup was unable to access the network. The generic Windows drivers access the network just fine although I only get two bars and a fair connection.I do have Internet connection through the windows drivers but it is slow and watching streaming video from Netflix is next to impossible.Long story short
I have a AE2500 USB Adapter. Whenever I go to connect it from my host machine to my VM I receive a Code 10 Error in Device Manager(Device Cannot Start). The VM locks up for awhile then comes to for a moment. Problem stops when the USB adapter is removed.
I bought a AE2500 adapter recently and attempted to install the Cisco Connect software. It gets to the point of connecting the device to the wireless, then crashes. I noticed that as I plugged the device in, it was recognised and activated without running the software at all; at the time of the software trying to connect the device, it's already connected.Just in case it was a matter of an old version of the driver and Cisco Connect software, I went online to the website and downloaded both the most recent driver and the latest version of Cisco Connect. The Cisco Connect crashed just like the version on the CD, and the driver said it was already the latest version and wouldn't install.So I tried the direct chat option. I spoke to two people. One of them lead me to give them a lot of information, then began asking me about my router... and promptly forgot about the adapter. They even had me on the path to resetting and installing software for the router I'm connected to, which isn't mine. Then the chat session crashed. why the Cisco Connect program keeps repeatedly crashing, and how I can stop it from doing so. As it stands, I think the adapter is overloading the memory on my computer and causing blue screens; I've been getting them ever since I connected the adapter. I think it might have something to do with my computer automatically detecting and activating the device when it's plugged in, but I'm not sure.
I Recently purchased the Linksys AE2500 adapter, upon looking at the advanced adapter settings, I couldn't find any more information pertaining to these settings on any linksys website or in fact online, where can I find a guide about these settings, Nothing about these setting was included on the CD.I set the basic one such as roaming aggressiveness but there are others that I would like to know about.
I currently have an AE2500 wireless usb plugged into my pc which is upstairs from my modem NetGear CG3100.Everytime I establish a wireless connection it has 4-5 bars of signaltivity. However after a couple of seconds the signal bars drop to 2 bars and maintains that way. I then experience disconnections which sometimes if i disconnect from the web, my browser detects it as a DNS error. To overcome this i just disconnect from the hotspot and reconnect again but the problem still persists.
I have a Linksys WUSB54G version 4 adapter.My computer is running Windows XP, Service Pack 3, which is automatically updated at all times. I've been using the adapter for a year with no problems.
Suddenly, it's started loosing the connection to the Linksys router and locking up my computer so only a hard re-boot power-down will work.When it comes back up, some or all of my cookies are lost.
I've run several different security packages but no virus or other issues have been found.I've uninstalled the adapter and reinstalled it.Last time, following something I read on this site, I installed it without the Linksys software, just the drivers.
I have had an issue with my AE2500 wireless adapter. I am using a LInksys E2500 dual band router but my samsung laptop's wireless adapter doesn't support 5ghz band, so bought the AE2500.I disabled the internal adapter and got the AE2500 connected up. I've set up the 5ghz channel with wireless N, and left 2.5ghz as it was. Somehow I am now experiencing slower speeds on both bands, when using speedtest.net's speed test. It's the 2nd time in my life I am having an issue like this, where I am adding something with capacity for more speed but end up things being worse. Previous was with a netgear adapter and router a few years ago. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I honestly don't think so.Also best sequence to get the new adapter connected? Should I do it before I disable the existing adapter?
