We've had ATT UVerse installed for about a month now. At the time of the installation, my mom's desktop had a virus so we couldn't get it connected.
Now, I have reinstalled Windows XP on the desktop. Installed is a Linksys WMP54GS PCI adapter in the desktop. I have tried installing and uninstalling the driver a million times. Also, we are using the 2Wire wireless router that came with UVerse.
When I try to connect with out network, it says that the wirelss card cannot connect to the wireless router (2Wire). Lastly, I can only assume that cross-brand wireless products work with eachother? AKA 2Wire and Linksys...
So what is the problem? I really need help because my mom needs to use her computer and there's no way to connect wirelessly!
PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

if your network is having a hard time to connect wirelessly, just set a static ip address to your computer using the adapter...
copy everything in the DNS of your RG and set a static ip range just within the range of the 2wire RG which is 192.168.1.254
then after that it should work fine...
theres a lot of run arounds for router and adapter to work together and playing on the authentication key types and channels could also help...
and just a reminder, brands are made to work on the same brand
..but having cross brands, their is a possibility that it may or may not work...
we are always reminded with that by our technical trainers...
