Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)

1 Answer

Internet keeps defaulting to dialup connection vs. wireless

Just installed a 802.11N Wireless USB Adapter into my PC which used to have a dial-up connection to use the internet. Installed just fine, the connection is made and I receive the wireless signal but for whatever reason whenever I open the web browser it wants to use the dial-up connection by default and ignores the fact that the PC is already connected via wireless. Consequently, I can't browse anything unless I go back to using my dial-up connection. I have windows XP. Any suggestions?

    I have a cable connection, always on. But when I open Outlook Express, the Dialup Connection window always opens up (I used to use this computer summers, where I only have dialup. Now I use it exclusively at my year-round location). So now if I click cancel in the Dialup Connection window, I can go ahead and read my mail, but I'd like to just stop that window from popping up every time I open Outlook Express. Can you help?

Go to Control panel > Internet Options> Connections tab >
check the "never dial a connection" bullet. Click ok.
Then you should be able to get online with that frustrating window.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

You could use a dongle adapter for wireless dial up service.

I have a dell desktop with wireless connection, there is also a wireless router connected to the dell to send a wireless connection to a laptop in the household. in a bedroom in the house is a compaq...


As you mentioned, your Compaq Presario MV520 is using Windows 98 OS. As we all know, dial-up connection is the only available internet connection at that time so obviously Win 98 has dial-up LAN connection. However, you wanted to have wireless connection on that PC so you need to install a wireless adapter to that PC. First of all, most wireless adapters that are being used for desktop PC are wireless USB adapter, so you need to have a USB port on that PC. And also, you will need to check if the software for the wireless adapter will be accepted by the PC because since the PC is using Win 98 OS, we are not sure if the firmware of the wireless adapter will be compatible to the PC. Basically, my answer would be not possible.

Is there anything in a PC that can cause interference with a wireless network? Because firefox ate my earlier question, I'll keep this short: PC used to keep laptop from connecting to internet when it was...


there is nothing inside a PC that will keep it or anything else from connecting to a wireless network. You have to lookout for things that use the same frequency such as cordless phones and believe it or not microwave ovens. both broadcast at 2.4Ghz which is the same frequency wireless routers and access points use. Your problem may also be a neighbor with a wireless router or access point using the same channel. Wireless routers and access points have 11 different channels that they can broadcast on and if you and your neighbor are using the same channel there will be interference. try changing the channel on your wireless router or access point.

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Just purchased a pc. i am using dial-up. do i have to have dsl to use my pc (wireless)


Yes....there is hardly nothing that you can use dialup for now.....only used as a backup for most businesses. Most photo, videos, music will take hours to days to complete using wireless. Dialup runs in kbps where wireless runs in Mbps. You might want to consider using broadband if you really want to use dialup otherwise you won't be able to get a good internet connection.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL..THANKS AND GOOD LUCK.

Problems with WiFi netgear WNDA3100


the drivers should be installed in windows 7 by default, their so called "smart wizard" has some compatibility issues with windows 7, I get it to load up and it will shut down or glitch out. What I did was uninstall the downloaded driver and use the default windows drivers, flipped the switch off to my built in G wifi adapter and the netgear automatically kicked in and took over as the default wireless adapter.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

I am changing from a Speedtouch USB broadband connection to a Belkin F5D7633-4 wireless connection on my PC. I can get the PC to talk to the router but cannot get internet - what am I doing wrong ??!!


It sounds to me that your PC is still looking for a manual connection to be made to the internet each time you want to go online.

If you're using Internet Explorer then check the following out, go to the Tools menu, Internet Options, Connections, make sure your dialups listed are selected as 'Never dial a connection'. This will allow your PC to find a connection with it looking to dial out again, so should use your router from now.
