Cant connect wirelessly

I have a netgear Dg834N wirless router which works fine when conectedwith an ethernet cable, however when i try to use the dongle supplied to me withthe router a netgear wg111t it cannot find any wireless signal, even though the router is not far away and i have no other wireless devices in the house. i can pick up a neighbours wirless signal so i know the system works, but it will not pick up the signal from my router. is there a problem because the router is an N model and the dongle is a G model, is isthere something else? do i need to by an N dongle? and if so which ones will workd with windows XP?

GET INTO THE ROUTER SETTINGS USING WWW.ROUTERLOGIN.COM OR HTTP://192.168.0.1 changed CHANNEL TO 11, mode: G&B
and under
Wireless Access Point

Enable Wireless Access Point and Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID) should be checked

Wireless Isolation should be unchecked

Connection problem. shows limited connectivity and disconnects


limited connectivity means you didn't get an IP address. Is the router set to give addresses via DHCP, or is another PC doing that? Most common cause of this problem is wrong authentication (normally "open") or encryption type (WEP, WPA or WPA2). Pklease note that encryption keys can be set as HEX or ASCII, if they are HEX it will be only numbers 0 to 9 and letters A-F. ASCII can be anything.

Motorola Surfboard 4220 not working with my Netgear WGT624 router


Make sure that you have the ethernet cord from your modem plugged into the WAN/Internet port on your router. Then unplug the power cord from your cable modem and plug it right back in. After the modem fully comes back online, unplug the power cord on the wireless router and plug it back in. wait 30 - 60 sec and then try and connect.

Most cable companies only allow one active"CPE" at a time for internet access. All this means is when you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always reboot the cable modem to allow access.


Hope this helps. Let me know if it does not work.

Please rate.

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.
