Try a different laptop to see whether it has the same problem. Once your computer is in range with the wireless network profile that is saved on your computer, it will automatically attempt to connect to that wireless network you have previously connected to.
Make sure that the WLAN light is on or flashing, check the settings whether the SSID is broadcasted or hide. When you connect to a wireless network, the settings and profile of that specific network is saved on your computer so that you won’t have to re-enter your network credentials, such as the wireless security key to connect the next time.
My Toshiba Satellite WILL NOT connect to Wi Fi in my employers home, but connects everywhere else I go; I have Windows XP Home Edition SP3, and he has a Linksys router WRT16ON.Would I still need to run a cable from my linksys to the new router and bridge the connection?I'm trying to eliminate the long wire from my linksys to my 360 without buying a wireless adapter first.ok before I move the router to my 360 I need to do the following? It finds the network, but won't connect to xbox live. XXXPut the Linksys router's LAN IP address outside the Trend Net's DHCP server range. My wife's wireless connection keeps dropping, a lot. Surely it's not because I have MAC filtering on is it? Example: Trend Net's LAN IP: 192.168.10.1 DHCP server range is 192.1 to 192.1Linksys would be 192.168.10.2so within the linksys router it needs to be 192.168.10.2do I always have to re-connect it to my wireless lan when I move it? Took longer than I thought it would putting ddwrt on my wrt54G, but man it's worth it! My wireless bridge (linksys) will constantly keep a connection while on xbox live. It also says that it's "validating identity" when connecting. Once that is saved can you then click the Wireless Security link under the Wireless tab and then choose the type of security you wish to use such as WEP then choose 64bit and enter a 10 digit number in the Key1 box (if in doubt just use your 10 digit phone number with area code) then save your changes. I changed the mode to Wireless G only and changed the channel to 1.After it has saved can you then go back to the wireless window and choose Wirless G only for the Wireless Mode then change the Standard Channel to 1 or 11 and save your settings. Saved settings and restarted computer - ran speed test from 3 different sources.right now it's on my wife's pc, but when I move it to my 360 it fails to do anything. SO much nicer than having a wire ran through our house! A Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the network name being broadcasted by your TP-Link wireless router. If the Problem is caused by your laptop, please call the support of your laptop. If you have connected to various wireless networks before, your computer may have problems connecting wirelessly, especially when the wireless network name (SSID) is the same with the previous ones you have connected to.Can I use the extra router as a wireless ap/bridge for my xbox 360?Since routers don't need drivers could this be possible?
