WPC54Gv2 under Windows 98 - can't get the IP address on the network WEP?


I installed a WPC54G v2 adapter in a laptop running windows 98. I connected to work at a WPA network without problem. I came home and I tried to connect to the network, but you can't get an ip address.

I know that the network has a WEP 64-bit password (I connected fine from another computer so I know that I have the right password). I compared the WEP key that the linksys client uses with the key in my router settings and they match. I can see the MAC address of the laptop as wireless to my router and linksys customer relationships it is connected to the router, but cannot connect to the internet.

I tried assigning a manual ip address and using the automatic ip address with no luck. Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thank you


I think that I may have been too far from the access point to connect. I tried again today from another place and I am now connected. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Hi Kate,.

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that Windows 7 can't find the network and I appreciate the efforts made to try the patches. Let me ask you;

    • Restoring the system led?
    • What exactly happens when you try to connect to the Wi - Fi?

    This could be due to several reasons, including any third party software conflict. Try the following methods and check.

    Method 1: Start the computer in Mode safe mode with network and check if the problem persists. If the problem does not persist in SafeMode with network, put the computer in a clean boot state and check.

    Step 1: Start the computer using safe mode with networking

    Safe mode with networking is an option of troubleshooting for Windows that starts your computer in a limited State. Only basic files and drivers needed to run Windows are started. Safe Mode with networking appears in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using. You can use the internet connection in this mode.

    Please refer to: , start your computer in safe mode

    Step 2: Perform a clean boot in order to avoid any conflict of third party software.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Place your system in the clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. You must follow the steps in the article mentioned below to perform a clean boot.

    3. If you see a message telling you that important updates are available, or you say to look at the important updates, click the message to view and select the updates to install.

    4. In the list, click the important updates for more information. Select the check boxes for the updates that you want to install and then click OK.

    5. Click install updates.

  • Windows 7 can not get the fingerprint reader to show

    I have a T500 I removed Vista and installed Windows 7.   But now I can't the fingerprint reader will be displayed at sign in.   I think that I have installed the driver, but it does not appear.   I went into Device Manager and it seems to be responsible.   Any ideas?

    You need not fingerprint software from Lenovo. It's just another program that is running in the background.

    Windows 7 has all the functions that the software Lenovo offers. Whether you use it or not, it's up to you.

    in any case, to get the fingerprint logon to work, you must go into control panel > biometrics. Then you need to check "Allow connections to fingerprints" (or something of the sort). It will ask you to register to use fingers.

    The next time you start your computer/log, you will be asked to use your fingerprint to log. It works exactly as it would if the Lenovo program was there (with the sole exception of the sliding-finger-to-boot-computer functionality).

  • Reinstalled Windows and can not get the video past standard vga

    I had to reformat my hard drive on my Studio 1749 and reinstall it from the disk operating system (which seems to have only the standard drivers on that).  Then, I went to the page of Support for drivers and installed the wireless lan driver and video driver.  But when I try to adjust the screen resolution, the only option for display is generic pnp monitor on standard vga adapter.  How can I get that back at the higher resolution and it supports?

    Thank you


    First thing to do is determine whether you have an Intel or ATI video (BIOS - F2 at startup screen - will tell you).

    Make sure that you have installed the Dell system software


    Then install the video driver.

  • Can't get the Time Capsule network to see Airport Extreme?

    I have a network set up through my Time Capsule and I want to express with my Airport Extreme, the problem is that I can't get the network to see Airport Extreme - or rather, we'll see, but when I try to connect to it, it starts to connect, and then I get an unexpected error. I tried to restore both their factory settings and did a restore forced several times to the Airport Extreme, but nothing helped. I made sure to affect my IPv6 link-local only, I've even re-created my network several times (always with the Capsule of time as the main base station, but nothing seems working.

    Any ideas would be very useful.

    The Airport Extreme and time Capsule have been purchased during the last month, and I'm under OS10.11.1

    First of all, try to update your software El Capitan to the current version of operation... 10.11.4... which was supposed to solve some of the bugs that cause the message "unexpected error".

    If still no help, try using an iPhone or an iPad for the configuration.  After the back if you don't know how to proceed.
