Ethernet to wireless adapter

Q: Ethernet to wireless adapter

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

Thanks in advance.

I will try and make this a simple as possible. I have 2 laptops. The first is running Windows 7 ultimate and the other, Ubuntu 12.04. They are connected via Ethernet through a Linksys BEFSR81 router. Both computers have static Ethernet addresses. I have a wireless router and both computers use their own wireless adapters for an internet connection. The wireless router (BEC 7800TN R2) is not physically connected to the eth router. The wireless adapters are set to use DHCP. IPv6 is disabled on the Ethernet adapters.

Here's my issue:

Streaming video or transferring files from the Win7 to my linux machine is very slow or fails unless i disable the wireless adapter on the Win7 laptop. However, if I change my wireless profile to public, which has sharing disabled, then no shares will show up in samba on the Linux 'puter, although I can ping the other computer by IP.

I have tried using lmhosts on both computers but to no avail. I can ping the Linux computer from my windows machine by IP, but if i try to ping from the NetBios name, it shows that its going through the router and will fail depending on whether the wireless profile is set to public or home.

How do I configure Windows so that the wireless is used for internet access only? Is this a router config issue? I'm racking my brain on this one.

EDIT: Even when file sharing/streaming is not working, Synergy still works fine and I can share the mouse/keyboard no problem.

Wasn't sure if this was supposed to go here or in networking, so I just put it here.

My family recently got a new desktop computer and my parents are putting it in my brothers room, which is near the opposite end of the house where the router and modem is. Should I just tell them to get some retartedly long Ethernet cord, or is there a good enough wireless adapter I could buy? I know direct connections are almost always better, but I don't think there is a store that sells long ethernet cords that stretch across my house, which is pretty big.
 

A:Solved: Ethernet Cable or Wireless Adapter?

It's easy enough to get an Ethernet cable up to 100 meters, and I'd guess that's long enough.
There are many factors that affect wireless reception, including the construction of your dwelling and the hardware you use, so I'd ask a mod to move this to the networking forum where you might get better help.

A:Help! How do you connect(with ethernet) a Wireless-B Broadband Adapter to a computer?

Please clarify. So you don't want to use the wireless feature of your router but rather use one on the wired ethernet ports on the router correct? So you've connected an Ethernet cable between one of your routers available ports and the Ethernet card installed in your PC correct?

I have read/searched through most of the posts on this and various other sites and can't seem to find help with my problem. So hopefully someone will be able to help.

This morning when I woke up my computer worked properly. I then went to work, and when I turned it on I got the "blue screen of death." (I apologize for not posting the exact wording, but I did not think I would need it). I restarted the computer per the instructions, and it booted up. The computer, however, failed to connect to the wireless network. I noticed that the network icon was not in the taskbar. I then went to device manager and my integrated wireless adapter (Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG) had a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. I clicked on properties and under the 'general' tab the device status read:

This device cannot start (Code 10)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device

I then unistalled the controller and attempted to reinstall via the 'add hardware' program. I then received the message:

A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your device may not function properly

I then, believing it was a driver issue, downloaded the latest drivers from the intel website for my device on another computer. I uninstalled the controller again, and tried to install with the new drivers via a thumb drive. I received the same error message and the controller had the yellow triangle.

A:Integrated Wireless Controller/PC Card Adapter/Ethernet port stopped working

Sounds like your motherboard is rapidly dying.

If the ethernet controller (or adapter) does not show under Network Adapters and is not in Other or Unknown devices with a warning or error message check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if it somehow got disabled. If it is already enabled, or doesn't show there, see my first paragraph.

When the ethernet controller is defective it can prevent other integrated and/or PCMCIA networking cards from working. When this happens sometimes a USB adapter will work.

Hello, I would love to ask for some help!
I've recently purchased the newer Dell XPS 13 9360 Non-touch (not the 2 in 1) and am having some trouble with using an external monitor. The screen (on the external monitor) keeps on flickering and has a very unstable connection. 
I've searched and found that apparently lowering the power output of the WIFI network adapter can fix this problem. 
The problem is that the current XPS's wifi adapter doesn't allow the power output to be changed. The previous fixes were geared towards intel wifi adapters.
The general power settings for the computers doesn't show wifi card power controls.

I have updated all the drivers for the computer including the wireless adapter. Still the options doesn't change.

Has anyone found a way to get a stable external monitor to work with the Killer Wireless Adapter cards?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am connecting both HDMI and DisplayPort displays, each with cheap native USB-C adapters (i.e. through Thunderbolt). I also have full success with a Dell DA200, through its built-in HDMI graphics adapter.

Hi,

thanks for looking in and trying to help. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it, and as usual today the laptop's screen frame also accomodates the internal Wireless Internet antenna. I am able to use the existing networks when they are close enough to me.

But I wanted to have a better reception, so I bought one of those USB-based Wireless Internet Adapters (WIA) which have mounted a little 5 dBi antenna (dBi = Decibel) on its side. I bought recently a much larger 22 dBi antenna, which I can use to replace the smaller antenna on that WIA. Windows also recognized the USB device correctly (please see the screenshot link: http://www.NADB.net/v/Prom/WLAN.jpg), but the connection tool at the lower right side of Windows (system tray area) displays only those networks which the internal screen frame antenna captures.

I tried already to disable the internal antenna, but then I don't get any network. Why can't the Network Connection icon not show networks the USB WIA might capture? What is it I am doing wrong?

Please don't mind to ask me for additional details here, I will provide them as additional details.

Hello, this problem has really confuzzled me. I have just bought a new wireless USB adapter, ran it through the setup entered the password etc. Fine. Nicely connects to the router everytime (well ok most the time). But it cant seem to find the internet, which i know is there because my house mate has no problems with it. I've read quite a few complaints about this adapter. Is it worth just returning it and trying a different one? Or does anyone have any ideas?

It finds the submask, ip address, sets a channel automatically. One thing i noticed though is it doesnt create a gateway. (i asume cos i cant find the net). I did have internet before but they were wired. I've since then disabled the normal ethernet adapter and disabled the old connections. So i dont think theres anything conflicting.

Please help?!!
Thank you in advance i really appreciate it.
 

A:Belkin Wireless adapter - can connect to the adapter, but not the internet!!!

I'm going to guess that the IP address that it finds is 169.254.x.x and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, right? It's really NOT connecting to the router, which is why you don't have a Default Gateway or DNS servers.

You don't have to disable the wired interface to connect wirelessly, there's no conflict.

I'd suggest you first disable the encryption and see if it connects. If it does, then you need to make sure you enter matching passwords for the encryption on each end. Note that for WEP you should ONLY use the HEX password, do not use the passcode option.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.

Hi there

Here's something to try...

I'm assuming that in "winipcfg" the dropdown is not showing your NIC as an option.

right-click on Network Neighborhood-select properties
on the installed components list make sure that you have the following...

Client for Microsoft Winfows
Realtek ethernet adapter
TCP/IP

If you have any VPN adapters, remove them. also removew any AOL adapters and all protocols other than TCP/IP

reboot and check it out. If the NIC now shows in WinIpCFG, do a "Release ALL", then close out and power system completely off. Then cycle the power on the DSL Modem, wait for it to come completely back up, then reboot the PC
Good Luck!

The only network driver that shows in device manager is the 1394 net adapter.

I am running and old Acer laptop and have my RR cable hooked up to my USB port. My speeds are only in the 1600/330 range and a technician came out and told me everything was checking out and that an ethernet hookup for my modem would help a lot.

My question is will an adapter like the one mentioned in the title of this post work on my laptop and allow me to have a ethernet hookup? Also what else would I need to complete this connection?

I hope this is the right forum for this problem.
I am attempting to install a Netgear N150 Wireless Router to my Dell Inspiron i580 computer. I have the new router cabled as directed, when I try to install it to my system I get this message: ?The Ethernet Adapter is either disabled or no Ethernet Adapter is installed on this computer. Either enable or add an adapter.? I am running WIN 8.0 and I have no problems accessing the web. Shouldn?t there be an adapter in my PC and if so how do I enable it.
Someone gave me a Kindle and I have to put in a Wi-Fi Router just to use it do I need something else too.
Thanks for your invaluable help, eddie460

Hey all, I have a NetGear Fa311 Ethernet Adapter, (new to me) (Was still in box unopened) I just installed Windows XP Pro, SP2.

I hace a cable modem, 3 meg, Connected to a Belkin wireless router, then a RJ-45 cable connecting to the NetGear Adapter.

The card seems to have installed, I have also found the CD and updated the drivers. I then went through the network connections, and set up a network connection for a cable connection thats always on No password needed. I had it notify me if conneceted or not connected.

It says that its connected, however I cant access the internet? I threw on my belkin wireless adapter, and connected no problems, The rj-45 cable works with a different network card. But for some reason it does not for this card?

Any Ideas?

It does give me IP addressess.
Address type
Assigned by DHPC
Ipaddress 192.168.2.5
Subnetmask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.2.1
Network connection details,
Physical Address 00-09-5b-1e-70-5b
DHCP server 192.168.2.1
DNS servers
192.168.2.1
24.163.64.53
68.115.71.53
24.159.193.40

There is nothing listed under the WINS Server

My VIA chipset is, KT133A
Southbridge vt82c686

If my VIA chipset is effected by a conflict, Is there a work around? As the card does not work in my other PC. Its the exact same thing??

Please only post if you know for sure whats going on. As a post with a reply will cause those who know what there doing to skip over the post..

Thanks in advance,
Enjoy,
Peace!

I have a cable modem with usb connection and I am getting bluescreen error "netrcacmxp.sys" Told by tech support to use a ethernet connection to get ride of the driver error. I dont have a ehternet card but saw a "Linksys USB300M Network adapter - Hi-Speed USB" where I can plug the ethernet into the computer via usb. Will this over ride the driver error or is it the same since it is still using a usb connection ? Thanks

I brought home my computer from work and it was obviously connected through a smaller sized ethernet port so i went and picked up a pci adapter 10/100 mbps fast ethernet port and installed it in ok but my network conections still say that a cord is unplugged because it is reading the old slot that we use to plug the phone line into called msi/broadcom 440 x 10/100 integrated controller, so how do i get it to pick up the new port that i just installed that has the cord plugged into it?thanks.

Hi all, I have a laptop with no ethernet port. On e-Bay I find many adapters titled "USB to ethernet" but only one used one titled "ethernet to USB". I need to access the web from our home router which is supplied through ethernet cables. The two types I find seem different but I'd really appreciate clarification since I can't see a reason to go from USB to ethernet. Seems backward.

Hi

Any help on this one would be great!

I am using a Belkin USB to ethernet adapter to connect to my Netgear ADSL modem/router as the win98se PC in question does not have an ethernet card.
Via the other XP PC connected to the router I can see the win98 pc is 'attached' and also can successfully ping the router via the win98 machine.

However, I cannot seem to gain internet access which is working fine with the XP machine. I have tried configuring static IP addressing with manual dns configuration (Using the DNS addresses reported by the router) and, again, the router shows the win98 machine attached at the chosen IP address. Internet explorer just sits there saying 'Finding www.whatever.com' but fails to connect.

Heres hoping someone out there might be able to sat where I've gone wrong!

I have been having problems with my computer randomly dropping my internet connection. Usually my ping spikes real high, Skype disconnects me, the game I'm playing disconnects me. I had this problem before upgrading to windows 10 and don't know if its my killer e2200 that came integrated with my motherboard. The driver is updated and I thought I might as well start here before trying to replace modem or router. I also want to add that I have a brand new Cat 6 cable Ethernet cable.

The only problem is trying to find a PCI Ethernet network adapter that is compatible with windows 10. I would really like to avoid using a USB 3.0 and prefer to use a PCI slot. Of course it doesn't need to say "good for gaming" as I think any generic 10/100/1000 Ethernet adapter will do. The problem is finding one that works with Windows 10. Thanks.

And if anyone want to try and solve my network problem your welcome to. I notice it only when I'm playing a game and talking to friends on Skype. I might also be listening to music with a mixture of downloaded and streaming from Spotify. When I'm playing a game and talking I will notice that the persons voice is getting broken up and my game starts to lag, ping spikes way passed 1000. When this happens Skype says I'm offline and I'm trying to reconnect. The problem I'm facing leads me to believe it could be my router thinking that I'm taking to much bandwidth or something.

I have recently installed an old WinXP desktop PC to my workshop. It lay in the loft the last few years packed and unused. I have it all working now updated to XP SP3 final updates and it is at present connecting to the internet through a long Cat5E cable from my Virgin superhub 2 modem. The XP PC connects via a VIA VT-6102 Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter on the motherboard. My question is, can someone with more technical knowledge tell me if this adapter is wireless capable and if so what do I need to get it connected wirelessly to the Virgin Superhub wi-fi?.

Hey everyone,

I haven't posted on here in years, but could use some help now with the system that this board helped me build.

It's an ECS K7S5A AMD Athlon 1.14 ghz processor, I had 512mb of RAM
OS= XP Pro 2002 SP 3.

I had this unit in storage for about 18 months and just began using it again about 5 months ago. Before I stored it, I had installed a larger seagate HD which subsequently failed. I had to reload windows, and ever since then, my performance has been quite slowed, and I get these very short intermittent hangs when typing, searching pages, or watching youtube videos...pretty much everything. I figured it was a memory issue and bought a 1gb stick of RAM, now giving me 1.5gb. I just read maybe 5 minutes ago that the board capacity was 1gb. That change really didn't speed a whole lot up, but it did make some difference, though not enough to prevent the little 'hiccups'.

I also have an issue where windows cannot find the drivers for the SM Bus or Ethernet adapter. I tried both the XP setup disc that I have as well as the disc that came with the mobo, to no avail.

I dowloaded the AMD driver update package and it said it couldn't find any AMD products! My system screen says the update package lies! (well not literally, but the two certainly aren't agreeing at the moment, as it clearly says AMD Athlon under the "Computer:" section of the general tab.

Could the two issues be related? I have nothing else showing up yellow in my device m... Read more

A:XP can't find SM Bus Or Ethernet Adapter

So I have a Dell PC I bought a little over 1.5 yrs ago that came with an integrated ethernet adapter on mobo.
worked fine uptill november last year when it started giving me problems where the comp would not recognize the adapter on start-up, a reboot would solve the problem and I'd be able to go online. recently even that stopped and I can not go online, neither would it recognize the adapter on the system device list at all.

Thinking that the port has gone bad, I bought a new PCI Express X1 card and installed that on the computer.
It showed up on the device manager list only the very first time I started the machine, on every subsequent start-up, the device manager list does not show either of the adapters and I have not been able to go online on that machine for more than three weeks now.

any help on this would be great if somebody has gone thru similar predicament.
thx
