No Wireless networks connecting to a Linksys router

Hi,

I have an IBM T21 notebook , with an PC/MCIA Gateway WGC-220 G wirless adapter.

I am working with it for a year and connecting to any network I want.

I now have a problem with the router in my new office, the Linksys WRT54GC.

Every other IBM T42/43 , Dell notebooks work fine and connect to the router and the network.

But mine says "no wireless networks".

I tried manually adding it to the prefered networks list, I configured it's name, Open, WEP and provided the WEP key.

It still isn't working, still no wireless networks.

Also, worth to mention , the the Gateway adapter has a led that says "Link" that is off when I am at the office, and on when I connect to other networks.

I have no idea what can be wrong, can someone help with some ideas ?


thanks

Can you try reseting the router to factory defaults and then try connecting to it, to make it simple to start off with?

I did it, but I had to install the WEP key immediatly since it is a security hazard.

WEP by the way is almost like no security, so there is a security hazard whether WEP is active or not. WPA is the way you should secure the network, but not all hardware supports that.

Anyway, while WEP was disabled, did the connection work?

Ok, I solved it.

I changed the locale parameter in my WiFI card to WorldWide and now it can see it.

thanks
