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 will have to open up your network connections to check the state of your internet connection
click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ? you will need to update or install the driver or it could be fire walled

make sure your isp provider is allowed in your firewall settings
your network adapter might not work, and you do not have network connectivity or any related network functionality.

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.

Do you have a good signal strength with the wireless USB adapter?
If not try moving the wireless router away from walls or metal objects and cordless phones, locate the wireless router higher.
See if there is a later driver for the wireless USB adapter, if so download and install it.

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.

Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?

If it does we can probably search for more information.

Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?
Did you enable MAC address checking on your router?

you have to make sure within the bluetooth settings on your pc that your pc is discoverable, this is turned off by default, if you are using the software that came with the adapter it must be in the connection settings somehere
