Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a netgear wireless router and can access the internet from 2 computers on the network. The third computer has a WG111T adaptor which accesses the network but when I try to access the internet I get a limited or no connectivity message and am unable to open any webpages. Any advice appreciated

    The computer is near my desk where another computer is connected to the network so I'm assuming there aren't any interference issues. I spent the afternoon clearing the hard disk of old files before attempting to connect to the network and the driver is the latest downloaded from the Netgear site this morning

    It sounds as though you have done everything right. Some network adaptors are more sensitive to power interference than others though. I had a Sony Vaio for repair recently with the same symptoms. For other reasons, I had to format the disk and reinstall windows. The computer connected immediately after that.



    Have you tried turning everything else off apart from the troublesome computer?



    Good luck anyway...

    Limited or no connectivity almost always means no connectivity.

    Three most common reasons are as follows.

    (1) Your third computer is picking up electrical interference from a power cable or power unit. Take a look and see if there are power cables near the computer. If you have a power unit close by, some of these are notorius for radiating interference.



    (2) Your third computer is cluttered with old files and needs a good clearout, or the connection needs to be reconfigured. Try clearing all the junk from you computer. Use "windows cleanup" or similar to rid all the unnecessary garbage. You could also delete your network connection and reconfigure it from scratch.



    (3) The network adaptor driver in your third computer is out of date.You can usually visit the manufacturer's website and update the driver. In fact, most people rarely notice any difference when drivers are updated, but it is worth a try.

Does the 3rd PC have XP on it?
Do a search for WinsockxpFix on Google, download onto a flash drive and run it on your 3rd PC. It will reset your network files on your PC. when it finishes it will ask you to restart the PC. Then you should be able to get on.

Also, did you check if your firewall is blocking the Internet?
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

72955587_xs.jpg Wireless routers connect computers to a network without the need for network cables.

Wireless routers are used to connect computers into a network without running network cables throughout your home or office. Netgear wireless router settings must be changed using the router's Web-based interface. Any computer that is "hard wired" with a network cable to the router, rather than on a wireless connection, can be used to access the router. From the Settings menu, options such as "Encryptionicon1.png," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.

      On a computer that is connected to the routericon1.png with a network cable, open any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. In the address bar, type "192.168.0.1" (without the quotes) and press "Enter." This will bring up the login prompt for most Netgear wireless routers. If that doesn't work, try "www.routerlogin.net", "192.168.0.5", or "10.1.10.1" until the login window appears.

      Type "admin" in the Username field, type "password" in the Password field and click "OK." If the password fails, try "1234," "Password" with a capital "P" or "admin". Once you enter the proper credentials, the settings screen will open.

      Make any required changes to the settings. Under Security section, it is possible to specify a new username and password for added security. Once you have saved your changes, close the window, and the system will automatically log you out.

Check the type of encryption the 572 is set for, I've found a few cases where it needs to be WPA and not WEP. As a temporary measure, you could switch off wireless security.
Lastly, check your not getting a channel conflict, if a neighbour has a wireless access point with the same channel, you may get problems, which will require logging onto the 572 and changing the wireless channel

You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.
If that router can see another wireless network available then maybe your Netgear wireless adapter have a problem incomplete installation or the wireless device is defective.

NETGEAR WG111T 108 MBPS WIRELESS USB 2.0 ADAPTER stopped working


What are you trying to connect your USB wireless device to?
Is it to a wireless hot spot?
or to a Wireless Access Point/Router?
When you find a connection, what is the signal strength?
I assume you have configured your Access Point correctly as well as making it secure. You should connect a computer to the Access Point using a network 10BaseT cable to check the Access Point configuration, especially the wireless configuration.

If you are trying to connect to a wireless Access Point and you have a weak signal, move your computer closer to the Access Point or move the Access Point to a better and higher location to give you a better wireless coverage. Note, walls can affect the wireless signals between the Access Point and the wireless network card and wireless USB device, especially reinforced concrete walls.

Hey there Kjantzi, I have found the site for Netgear, and as I read it the update is one of the options but the drivers and firmware are there as well. Check here:

Choose the version for your OS on the left, and it gives you detailed instructions, including the update process, if needed. If you still have problems let me know. Good Luck!

Wg111t


Hi - Well, I do have one thing for you look for -
what type of network access are you trying to set up?

I'd just reinstall the software again (don't worry about the uninstall yet) and say okay if it asks if it can overwrite the files.

With the type of card you are mentioning, you are probably going to have to set it up to access as WEP (instead of WPA's). That was what was wrong when we installed one of these two weeks ago. I was trying to connect to the WPA-personal that I'd set up the router to and already had one computer set up for. I had to change the entire network setup (including router) to WEP to accommodate the new connection! (And WEP is slower than WPA's.)

I hope that is the only problem for you.
