Question about NetGear (IM-WG511T) Wireless Adapter
I have a Netgear WG511T wireless PCMCIA card in a vpr Matrix laptop. The card is recognized by the laptop and the drivers get installed (the default ones), but the card's led blink alternate indicating that is trying to connect, but no connection. I downloaded the last drivers from the site (ver 188.8.131.52) but still the same problem. My router is DLink DI-524 and I know it works since I'm using it right now another latpop that's connected to it. Also, my other laptop sees many wireless networks in the available list while the Netgear card can't see any (so it's not just a problem of my router or the Dlink-Netgear mix unless all the other networks in my range are DLink routers...) I have no idea what else to try, or if there's anyway i can diagnose the card... it is working somehow (at least as the laptop is concerned) but it just can't connect to anything...
Can your other laptop see the laptop with the problem. First check that it is being given an IP address in your router and set to obtain IP address automatically. You may need to give the wireless card an ip address and DNS address yourself within the same range as the others; this way you know the addresses are correct. Just check that your problem laptop has the same network group name, right click my computer>properties>computer name and check the workgroup name is tha same as rest of your pc's. Keep trying you'll win in the end!
