Dell inspiron with netgear netwok card. wont work with speedtouch wireless router. but have worked fine with other routers

Hi i recently moved home. My dell inspiron computer did not have a built in wireless connectivity. so i have been using this Netgear PCI card (? the ones that are like a thick creidt card size and u slide in the side of ur laptop) for the last three years with different wireless routers with no problem. But this time the SpeedTouch router connects with this laptop. But in the connection properties it shows 'packets received'= zero while 'packets sent' goes up with time. my laptop recognises the router, and the connectivity icon at the bottom right corner of the screen is green and everything. but it just wont connect to the internet while other computers are doing fine at the same time under the same router.

I found out that the router does not assign any IP, DNS, WINS or Default Gateway numbers to my laptop, while apparently it does to other computers in the network. I have tried to copy those numbers and manually input in my laptop, (of course changing the last bit of the IP with an arbitrary number) but nothings working.

WEP security is enabled and it takes in the password without any error message.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    i have let windows control the wireless network instead of the NETGEAR application that was doing it so far. This has solved the problem for now, but after several tries. I'm not sure windows is getting it right every time. Sometimes it assigns my laptop subnet mask 255.255.0.0 and it doesnt work, other times its assigning 255.255.255.0 and then its fine!



    Thanks P Singh for trying.

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

Check the settings of the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up.
Make sure that the Wireless MAC filter is disabled on the router.

My daughter has an old Dell Inspiron and it works great with a Belkon router but when they got the netgear wireless router she gets a blue screen. What do I do?


Need to check for driver compatibility for the Netgear router . Contact Netgear for backwards compatibility or purchase a router that will be compatible with your PC.

Can't get wireless connection to work


Is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless card detect your Netgear Router and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the Netgear Router's SSID and encryption settings before it will communicate with the Netgear Router.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

Why do you think so?
Does it boot in Safe Mode?
Remove and re-seat this card, then reinstall the drivers.
