Netgear Wireless USB 2.0 adaptor cannot find a signal

I've just installed the adaptor on remote computer which is not more than 20 mtrs from main computer. The router works perfectly with ethernet cable on main computer and the adaptor installed perfectly ... but, it keeps scanning and failing to find any connections.

Netgear suggest uninstalling XP Service Pack 3 as it apparently only works with SP2. Is this corect do you know?

Any suggestions, please? Many thanks.

    I have that problem also. I was told to try:

    1) turning off all firewalls and virus detectors before installing Service Pack 3

    or 2) downloading updated drivers for netgear

    or 3) using the hotfix at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923979



    I am currently going to try to update the drivers then install service pack 3 and if that doesnt work i will be trying the hotfix

    I will let you know how what works (if any)

As i had service pack 3 installed i uninstalled it and restarted the computer. Then I exited the virus software i was running and turned off the windows firewall. I reinstalled the service pack 3, restarted the computer and turned on the firewall etc and now my internet works.
I hope this works for you to.

Before doing that, make sure your wi-fi is turned on in your router. If the adapter is not seeing a signal, it may well be that your router is not broadcasting one. If you have another computer with wi-fi (like a notebook), or know someone who does, you can always use it (or theirs) to see if they can "see" the router via wi-fi, which will tell you if the problem is router or adapter.

Cheers

I've had a Netgear WG111 usb wireless adaptor since 2007. It has suddenly stopped working.My computer cannot connect to the internet/ modem - it says no adaptor detected. Help. Can the adaptor just die?


yes they can and do I personally have had 3 or more just die, especially anything USB, they are real bad for just stopping, It is usually the USB interface and not the actual device that fails. with USB, it is usually a power spike" that kills them.

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
