- Encountering Difficulties when Connecting a Wireless-G Game Adapter to a Non-Linksys Router
NOTE: Before connecting your Wireless-G Game Adapter to a non-Linksys wireless router, take note of your Wireless Network Name (SSID), Wireless Security and/or Network Key. If you do not have these settings, consult your wireless router’s user guide or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
Setting-Up the Wireless-G Game Adapter
Connect the Wireless-G Game Adapter to your router using an Ethernet cable. For instructions, click here.
Access the Wireless-G Game Adapter’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the Game Adapter's web-based setup page, click here.
When the Game Adapter’s setup page appears, look for the SSID field and enter the wireless network’s SSID.
Look for Network Type and select Infrastructure.
If WEP is not enabled on the wireless router, select Disable then proceed to Step 10.
If WEP is enabled, select Enable then click WEP Key Settings then proceed to the step below.
When the WEP Encryption window appears, select the same Default Transmit Key as your router’s. In this example, we selected 1.
Select the same WEP encryption level either 64Bit(10 hex digits) or 128Bit(26 hex digits). In this example we selected 128Bit(26 hex digits).
Depending on what default transmit key is selected, enter the wireless network’s WEP key. Since we selected Key 1, we’ll enter the WEP key in the Key 1 field.
On the Setup page, click Refresh and select your wireless network’s SSID.
Once your SSID is selected, click Connect.
Click Apply and you’re done setting-up the Game Adapter.
