Hello all!

Can I use a Linksys Wireless G router (WCG200-CC) with a Linksys Wireless B adaptor (WPC11) in a laptop? Will this work? Are they compatable?

Thanks!

Thanks snapper, can you elaborate? On what computer will I find the 'wireless' tab. Are you talking about the computer that is wired, or the wireless laptop? Where is the tab?

Thanks!

The user guide for your router can be found on this page WGC200 if you open the user guide and look at chapter 5 under 'Basic Wireless Settings' it tells you how to set the router for g-only, b-only or mixed networks. You change the settings by logging on to the router by typing it's address into your web browser. :thumbsup:

Now I get it! Thanks.

BTW, linky no worky.

EDIT: I have found the info on the linksys.com web site. I had been to the website first, but for some reason could not find the needed info, thanks for steering me back there. From the site:

The built-in Wireless-G Access Point allows up to 32 wireless devices to connect to your network at a blazing 54Mbps, without running cables through the house. It's also compatible with Wireless-B devices, at 11Mbps. The Gateway's Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share that high-speed Internet connection.

UPDATE:

The router info on the website referred to in this thread is for the WCG200. I was using model WCG200-CC. The CC stands for ComCast, and the set up is a little different. There actually is no settings to change to make it work with a Wireless B adaptor. It does so automatically.

Thanks for your help!
