Linksys WMA11B "waiting for host"

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Jarek Wilkiewicz, Oct 14, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    I just got Linksys Wireless-B Media Adapter WMA11B. I can ping it over
    my wireless network, no problem. I've got WEP as well as MAC filtering
    enabled. My wireless access point is Cisco Aironet 340.
    When I power up the Linksys box, it displays "waiting for host" on the
    TV and that's it. The signal strength it is reporting is 92%. My
    desktop running the Linksys s/w is Windows XP Pro.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks,
    Jarek

  2. Looks like I fixed my problem - on Windows XP, disabling the firewall
    for my wireless interface did the trick. I was not able to get info
    from support on the ports that WMA uses to connect back to the PC,
    though.
