Linksys WRT54G not compatable with SMC 2202?
Posted on 2004-08-23
I'm trying to set up a wireless home network for a client. He currently has 1 Windows98SE PC connected with broadband. I tried a Linksys WRT54G router to connect 2 wireless laptops to the network. The main pc is connected using a Toshiba modem (not sure model) and an SMC 2202 USB/Ethernet adapter. The computer is online and can connect to anything i try, but when i run the router setup software, it claims the computer isnt connected to the internet.
there isnt a ethernet port on the computer, nor is there space for it (crappy gateway "everything-in-1-piece-of-plastic" things). my initial assumption is that for some reason the linksys stuff isnt able to get thru the usb adapter.
is that the correct assuption so far? are there any known issues with linksys and smc? or workarounds?
thx in advance
