Connect to Wireless Network
For Windows 7 Users:
You will need to use the utility built in Windows 7 to manage this wireless USB
adapter. Currently, Airlink101 Wireless Monitor does not support Windows 7.
Step 2.1 Click on the wireless icon in the system tray at the bottom right-hand
corner of your screen. A list of available network will pop up. Select the one you
want to connect to and click Connect.
For Windows Vista/XP/2000 Users:
Step 2.1 Open the Airlink101 Wireless Monitor utility by double clicking on the
icon in the system tray at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
Step 2.2 Enter the network security key if the wireless network you are
attempting to connect to has wireless encryption enabled. Click OK. The
connection should be now established.
Step 2.2
The Easy Setup Button (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a new and easy way to
configure the encryption for your wireless network clients. In order to use it, you
need to have a router that supports this feature.
Note: If your router doesn’t support Easy Setup Button function (Wi-Fi
Protected Setup), please go to Step 2.3.
1. Push the Easy Setup Button of the Adapter until you see the following
window pops up on the monitor.
3. The router will now start to synchronize the encryption settings with the
wireless adapter. The connection will be established in few seconds.
Continue to Step 2.5.
If the connection is unable to establish, continue to Step 2.3.
Step 2.3 Click the Available Network tab of the Wireless Monitor, select the
wireless network that you wish to connect to, and click Add to Profile.
This window pops up to acknowledge you the wireless adapter is starting to
establish a connection.
2. Within the following 2 minutes, push the Easy Setup Button (WPS Button)
on the back of the Router. The picture shows Airlink101 AR570W Wireless
150 Router.
If the network that you are attempting to connect does not have encryption
enabled, you will receive a warning about connecting to an unsecured network.
Click OK to complete the connection. Go to Step 2.5.
Step 2.4 Enter the wireless security key into the Network Key and Confirm
Network Key boxes. Click OK.
Congratulations! You have now connected to the wireless network
successfully.
The wireless adapter will automatically detect the type of Network
Authentication and the Data encryption. All you need to do is to enter the
Network Key in the appropriate boxes according to the settings of the wireless
router and click OK to connect.
Step 2.5 The connection should be now established. Under the utility
Airlink101 Wireless Monitor, go to General tab to check the status of the
connection. Verify that IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway have valid
numbers assigned to them (instead of all 0’s). The Status should be Associated,
and there should be green bars next to Signal Strength and Link Quality.
Troubleshooting
1. If you cannot open the wireless monitor utility, make sure that the USB
adapter is inserted firmly into the USB port.
2. If you cannot connect to the wireless router, you may want to double check
the wireless security settings on the router. The network key you entered in
Step 2.4 must match with the settings on the wireless router.
3. If you are experiencing problems with the connection such as low signal
strength, slow connection speed, or unstable wireless connection, you can try
to tune your router’s signal by changing the channels on the router and/or by
adjusting the direction of the antenna(s). You do not need to change the
channel on the Adapter; it will automatically pick up the new channel after you
reboot the router. Your router has 11 different channels to choose from. Keep
going through the channels until you find one that gives you a stable connection.
For instructions on changing channels, refer to the documentation that comes
with the router.
