I've come here after two weeks w/o internet (this is a friend's computer) and an absolutely maddening series of several lengthy phone calls with Linksys techs, as well as a DLink tech (our router brand) and Best Buy, who refused to accept a return or exchange of this adapter a couple of days after the return date. No one can help me, I'm losing valuable work-at-home time, I'm stuck with a new adapter I can't use or get support for, I'm paying for internet service I can't use, and I'm on too much of a budget to waltz out and buy a new adapter.
During the course of my discussions with the Linksys techs, we did every sort of manual and auto reconfiguration imaginable, as well as unplugging and plugging back in, restarting, uninstalling, etc. etc. Several hours on the phone. Literal hours.
I moved two weeks ago. Before I moved I bought the adapter (beginning of March). There was a little trouble connecting at the previous address but via some answers in various online forums and with the help of a Linksys tech was able to tweak, configure, and connect. It worked fine until I disassembled everything and moved.
The Adapter Model is: Linksys WUSB54G Wireless-G USB Adapter (sorry...it's early here and I put the wrong model # in the topic heading). My OS is Windows ME. I don't have a firewall. The router is by DLink.
At my new place - right around the corner and with the same computer, etc. (nothing has changed but my location), I have NOT been able to get anything but a very strong signal - nothing anyone does to help me enables me to connect! My roomie is online no problem. I know that my adapter works...it's new and was working fine two short weeks ago. Please help me, and please know that I've done all of the basic stuff re: checking this problem about ten thousand times. I'm starting to lose some serious (in my economy) money and work time because of this situation, and it's beginning to affect me badly professionally!
I will be checking my email catch-as-catch-can. Again, thank you so very much for your help.
