Our WSB54gV2 wireless USB adapter will not auto connect when powering up the computer. It arrives at a state “You are connected to access point, but internet can not be found”. However, even though it says it’s connected, I can not access the Router using it’s address (192.168.1.254).
I set up (in the Linksys WLAN Monitor V2.0 Profiles) Auto-Connect and that feature does not work.
But I can connect by running the Monitor after doing a site survey, selecting the access point and hitting connect button.
I have checked all the parameters, especially spelling of the SSID, the security, encryption and passphrase.
I have input fixed Network Settings (IP address, SubNet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS1, and DNS2 and also let it Obtain settings automatically (DHCP)
The only option I have not tried and don’t understand is the Ad-Hoc Wireless Mode.
I have re-downloaded and reinstalled drivers and software.
As a Note, If I ask Windows to ‘Repair’ the connection it proceeds until “Connecting to Wireless Network” fails. This feature used to work too.
This creates an issue because I have a Kids Partition (K9 protected) and they can not just login and connect.
We have done so well, I thought to try solving this problem.
This is a Windows XP system, fully patched. It used to work, but once it stopped over a year ago, I was never able to get it going again.
