Excellent signal strength indicated, but no internet found. Had just installed this wireless adapter on an old laptop running Windows 98 Second Edition; have never gotten to internet via this adapter/laptop. Any suggestions/advice?
I had the same problem yesterday upon installing a WPC54G notebook adapter card on my HP Pavilion, operating with XP Home Edition. I had just subscribed to Verizon FIOS broadband, with an Actiontec router. Verizon technical support's solution was to switching to the Windows wireless system as follows:
1) Open "Wireless Network Connection 3" window by clicking on double-monitor icon on taskbar.
2) Click on "Properties" to open "Wireless Network Connection 3 Properties". The "General" menu will say: "Connect using Wireless G Notebook Adapter WPC54G V3".
3) Select "Wireless Networks" window. Click on "Properties". This opens the "Wireless Network Properties" window. Enter "Network key" number.
