Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Wireless adapter won't connect to internet

\015 I have three computers. \015\0121. A desk top - hardwired to the DSL Modeum & Wireless router (TRENDnet) \015\0122. A HP Laptop XP wireless connected to internet \015\0123. XP desktop in the next room connected with a wireless (SMC 2662W adapter) We have operated for years with a Belkin router. \015\012\015\012Recently the DSL modeum kept dropping out requiring it to be rebooted many times a day. AT&T (after sending us a new modeum) determined the Belkin router was the problem. I purchased a new TRENDnet TEW-631BRP router. \015\012\015\012Now the #3 computer will not connect. It seems to detect the network system, but will not connect. TRENDnet claims the fault is with the SMC wireless adapter. So, how do I configure the SMC adapter to talk to the TRENDnet router so we can access the internet? \015

Answers :

I am not sure what you have already tried but I have run into issues where one piece of hardware just won't get along with another piece of hardware...

Try putting the adapter on another computer and see if it connects. This will rule out computer #3. If the adapter does not work in the other computer, time to get a new adapter...

Benefit of a new adapter: Connection faster, newer technology.. currently your adapter is a b, you could get an inexpensive N that will really improve the speeds!

Hope this helps!
