Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Can't Connect To WET54GS5

Dec 2, 2008

I have a WET54GS5 that I can't setup:
I am running Vista and have the bridge connected to a WRTP54G wireless router...I have also turned with Windows firewall OFF.  My network has been setup properly and all other components work fine.
I have tried the setup CD, but get the "The Setup Utility was unable to locate a Wireless G Ethernet bridge..." message.
I have also held the reset button for 30+ seconds and tried to log into the bridge directly using the IP addy (

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WET54GS5 Not Accessible After Inactivity?

Apr 15, 2012

I hadn't used this device (version 1) for a couple of years.  After that much time and many changes in my home network, once again I need it to connect a printer.  I pushed the reset button and followed the initial setup directions.  So far so good.
Then I followed directions for using it on my network.  Also good.  I can access the bridge's web server and I can send jobs to the printer.
My problem is, after a period of inactivity (say, over night) I can no longer access the printer or the bridge.  The only way I have found to get them back is to power-cycle the bridge. Some data ...
My router is a WRT320N.  It manages DHCP and reserves a fixed IP address for the bridge.The bridge connects to a wireless network managed by an Apple Airport Extreme 802.11.  It is connected directly to the router.  Yes, I have two WiFi networks.  No, I have not yet tried the bridge on the router's network.The LEDs on the bridge are the same, accessible or not.The printer is an OKI c3400n.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE3000 Will Not Connect?

Sep 9, 2012

I picked up a AE3000 for an older laptop, but it will not connect to any network. It is on an older (01') dell laptop running XP SP3.   I have tried using the disk and downloading the latest drivers on-line but no luck. It picks up all the networks around me and mine, but it says trying to connect and just can't. I tried it on another laptop and everything works fine. Is there an issue with this adapter and the original USB ports or XP in general? I have checked and rechecked the passcodes, I have deleted all of the profiles and started from the beginning again. I removed my anti-virus program as well as the last effort. Nothing I do seems to make a difference though.This is just used to access the internet on a laptop that is dedicated to a telescope.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Cannot Connect With WMP54G

Apr 23, 2008

I am having some trouble getting my computer with Windows XP to use the Linksys model WMP54G wireless - G PCI adapter to connect to the network in my house. I have installed the hardware and the drivers. When I open the view available wireless networks window my network shows up with two bars of strength. But when I select this network and click connect, I get an error message saying "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have other computers connecting to this wireless network without any problem. The wireless router I am using is the model WRT150N wireless

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE1000 Will Not Connect?

Mar 12, 2012

Bought the AE1000. Hooked it up to my desktop computer (Sony VAIO), and it immediately recognized my wireless network in my house. However, when trying to log on, it asks for the network key, which I correctly enter and it attempts to log on, but fails to connect! I have called Linksys, and they claim it is my ISP's fault. I called Comcast (My ISP) and they claim it is a faulty product.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: New AE2500 Will Not Connect?

Apr 30, 2013

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.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WUSB54GSC Will Not Connect?

May 23, 2011

I just moved and when I unpacked my ANCENT desktop (circa 2005), the wireless adapter, that had worked with no issues in my last home, would not connect to the internet.  I bought a new one, a My router and internet connection are working just fine, as I am able to get on my laptop with no problems whatsoever.  After doing many online searches and two long chat conversations with Linksys tech support, no one can seem to figure out what the problem is.  The last Linksys person I talked to suggested that it might be the router settings that are preventing my PC from connecting.  My internet provider (who provided the router) confirmed that there is nothing with the settings to prevent me from connecting to any device.
This is what happened:  I installed the software with my new adapter.  It worked fine for a day or so until I rebooted my computer.  My friend messed around with it and somehow managed to get it to connect again (he has no recollection of how he did this). 
When I clicked on "Find Available Wireless Networks", NOTHING came up even though I knew I had not only my own network available, but others in my range.  I finally managed (with Linksys agent) to stop the Linksys software from managing the connection, and got Wireless Zero Connection to manage the connection.  So now, when I click on my network, I get a little box that says, "Connected!", however in the list of available networks, it shows my network and says "Not Connected".  And of course when I try to connect to the internet it does not work.
I can't download a driver because I don't have the ability to hardwire this PC to the internet.  Plus, I got it to work before, so I figure there must be a way for me to get it to work again.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WRT54G2 - Can't Connect Using Password

Apr 2, 2009

Just got the WRT54G2 and setup it fine with or without encrytion and passwords - however when I setup the other 2 pcs on my network - the only way I can get them setup and going is WITHOUT encryption and password protection - setiing up without encryption on those works fine, but it defeats the purpose of what I'm trying to do.  I was on the phone with Linksys for over an hour and they can't seem to get it to work either - guess they got stumped and after an hour - I was put on hold and then cut off.

I am installing a Cisco EA2500 wireless USB adapter to my old desktop (windows xp pro) and it keeps asking me for a WEP key/password to connect to my network that obviously must be 5 characters and my network/router is WPA2 and is more than 5 characters. How do I connect?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE1000 Does Not Connect On Startup?

Dec 30, 2010

Ive been reading the forums up and down about this device and i notice other threads with users having the "Exact" problem im having. Only problem is im noticing a simaalar theme to ech of those threads. The issue doesnt have a resolution.
With that said i figured i would give this a try regaurdless. The problem i have is very simple.
Windows 7 Yltimate 64 bit.
Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO
Proc: Phenom x6
Ram: 8 Gb
Ive tried all USB ports (2.0) on the computer and they all exibit the same said behavior. This being that when you turn the computer off, restart it, or put it to sleep...the AE1000 will not power on and has to be unseated from the USB port and then reseated before the device is seen by the system and then and only then does it fire up, connect and work perfectly.
The drivers i have used have been the ones off the CD, Then i removed those and downloaded the ones from the website. These drivers have been installed after removing the entry from device manager manually after attempts to use the normal method resulted in the same behavior.
Also i have installed this device on my Dell E6400, Dell D620 Running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and 64 bit and they also exibit the same exact behavoir.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Wusb100 Won't Connect Or See Network

Jun 13, 2011

I have had a wusb100 on my computer for some time.  Yesterday it kept showing that it had a very weak signal and wouldn't connect to the internet, although the other computers in the house were fine..  I've reinstalled it and the device manager shows it working fine.  The tv screen icon advised me that there are wireless networks in the area but the adapter isn't connected. When I click on the pop up, it tells me that there are no wireless networks in range.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP600N Cannot Connect WRT160N With WPA Or WPA2

Feb 21, 2010

I've just purchased a new router (WRT160N) and wireless adapter (WMP600N).  The problem is that I cannot connect to the router when I have it set to WPA or WPA2. At the same time my laptop with Atheros 9285n connects to router and works perfectly. When the wireless security disabled the wmp600n connects to the router without a problem and shows 300mbps connection speed and laptop 150mbps. When the router is set to WEP both laptop and pc with wmp600n connect but work very slow - 54mbps only.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Unable To Connect To Network

Nov 5, 2011

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

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Can't Connect WGA600N After Switch To WPA2

My wifi was previously unprotected.  I switched to WPA2 and now can't connect to my network.  In the set up, it can't even see the adapter.  The lights tell me that the adapter is talking to my computer.  The ethernet and wifi lights blink.  What can I do other than unprotect my network?  How can I set this up manually if the computer can't even see it?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 / Cannot Install Cisco Connect

Aug 19, 2011

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.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WUSB600N V2 - Connection Fails - Can't Find WAP To Connect?

Apr 23, 2011

I purchased two WUSB600N V2 wireless adapters recently and have had nothing but problems on an otherwise stable network where I have iPads, iPhones, Netbooks, media centres, wireless printers, Notebooks and other USB PC-based network devices working without problems.
The WUSB600Ns are connected to desktop PCs, running WIndows XP SP3. I have removed the Linksys Network Management software and use Microsoft's wireless network management software.  I am running the latest drivers for the cards. My WAP is a Belkin F5D-8236-4 running in WAP only mode. It is set to 40Mhz Channel 11 primary, Channel 7 secondary. Protected Mode is off, Broadcast SSID is on. I run WPA2-PSK AES for encryption. Note:  I've tried all combinations of bandwidth and channel settings.  I've run Netstumbler to find clear air channels - 11 seems best.
The issues are:

* seldomly connects at boot automatically without intervention.

* occasionally does not find WAP to connect to.

* sometimes will not connect to WAP - sits at "Acquiring Network Address".

* sometimes will not even get to Acquiring Network Address.

* Will often, once connected, after a while lose connection - the timeframe is inconsistent.
All of my other devices do not have these issues. I've been working on this issue for about a week trying to stabilise, even get a consistent failure pattern, but I'm about to send them both back.These are close to the most frustrating devices I've configured and I've got a lot of stuff on my network.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP546 / Unable To Connect To Internet With XP Computer

I am unable to connect to the internet with my XP computer.  I am running Apple Air Port as my router.  The wireless network has  an iMac, an IBM Think Pad(XP SP2)and a Dell XPS 410 (XP SP2).  I am using WPA security and the Dell will not connect while the other two computers always connect.  My wireless network  is broadcasting, but when I try to connect after entering the proper key, it attempts to connect but appears to time out and displays the available wireless network. I tried reinstalling the drivers, but no success.  Device Manager says the card is working and enabled.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: E3000 Works Fine But New AE1000 Won't Connect

Jun 7, 2010

Just installed an E3000 in my house.  All wired PCs are working fine on the network, and my BlackBerry connects to the wireless signal just fine.  I got an AE1000 for my laptop.  It installs fine, sees the wireless signals (secure and guest) fine, but it simply won't connect to the E3000 either using the Easy Key I created with the Cisco Connect software or by manually entering the WPA2 passphrase.  The WZC window that shows the networks tries to connect and then fails with no error message.  Using the Cisco Connect software to do the same task also fails, and after entering the passphrase manually there, the error message is:
Error description:   Invalid Key Xml
Model name:  AE1000
Operating system:  Windows XP SP 3
Software version: 1.1.10049.0
Also, I can find nothing on the laptop since installing the adapter that allows me to switch between the dual bands.  Since that was one of the main advertising points for the AE1000, how do you control which band it's using?

I can connect via to E4200 with old laptop via G. Great signal and speed (54mps).No such luck on same machine with AE2500(G adapter disabled). Can't find any but one network(neighbors).CD software can't find adapter.I install the adpter manually using normal xp device discovery steps.Seems like there is quite a few AE2500 issues. Should I ask for RMA return? No point in wasting more time in trying to fix Cisco's tech issue.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP600N Wouldn't Connect Unless Rebooted Router

Sep 9, 2012

I have been having problems with my Linksys WMP600N adapter and trying to connect to the internet.It started a few weeks ago in my old house, where it wouldn't connect unless I rebooted the router, or it would take a long time (over half an hour after being turned on to connect.)Then when I moved it got worse.At the moment it finds the wireless signals avaiable to it, but when I click connect it fails very quickly. It doesn't even try and connect, as it doesn't ask me for my wireless password.When I do get it connected, if I reboot the router and mess around, it kicks me off after a while, and then instead of showing the network available to connect to, shows it with a red cross beside, and I have to go and edit the security settings, or delete the profile and try and connect again. I have tried googling, but various different searches have turned up empty handed. My desktop is running Win 7 64bitThe rest of the specs are Core i7 920 CPU, Asus P6T Deluxe v2 Mobo, 12Gig RAM, Asus GTX 670 GPU, a Corsair SSD, 2 1TB HDDs and 1 2TB one.My Windows 7 laptop connects fine, and our Media Centre PC had some problems before I was here, but works fine now too.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WUSB100 Doesn't Connect In N-only Mode To WRT150N Router

Nov 12, 2011

with my Linksys WRT150N router in "N-only" mode, the usb adapter WUSB100 doesn't connect. In the datasheet is written that it is B-G, but also N compatible..[URL] It connects only when the router is on "mixed mode" (B-G-N).
The device works great, the only thing is that it doesn't connect to N networks.... cause i think it is not N compatible. When i look for networks, Windows shows me that there is my N network, but when i click connect, after a few seconds, appears "impossible to connect".... but if i set the router on "mixed mode", no problems.
