I tried getting help from Linksys chat but I think every thing got confused because we were trying to set up the router and two laptops in one session. I have a WRT54GS v2.1 wireless router connected to a desktop PC. I have a Compaq laptop with built in wireless that is currently connected and working with the router. I recently purchased a wpc54gs v1.0 notebook adapter. I am trying to get the adapter to work in an older 750mhz PIII Dell notebook. After setting up the adapter two different bubble windows alternate popping up. The first says the name of my network and says the signal is excellent. The second window says the connection is unavailable. The router is currently setup using WEP. When I try entering the key on the Dell it says I have to use hexadecimal or something else. (I can't exactly remember everything word for word). Linksys chat had me change from WEP to the hexadecimal format. The Dell would connect and disconnect in two second intervals in this configuration. Also, I couldn't get the Compaq to work with the new key in hexadecimal format. Just to reiterate, my main concern is getting the WPC54GS to work on my Dell. Any other suggetions about setup would be great. What do I do? Sorry if anything is confusing, since I don't have a clue.
