Is the Netgear Wi-Fi Management software installed on the computer? If it is, you may have a conflict between Window's built in Wi-Fi Manager and the Netgear Wi-Fi Manager. If it isn't, you may need to install it.
Assuming it isn't, there's links to download the software at the Netgear Global Download Center.
I would default to the most current version, if you're running Windows XP, you may need to install the v2.1, however, I would assume the v3.1 would be backward compatible with XP.
Install the software and follow the prompts that will guide you through the installation/setup.
Now, if the software is already installed, you need to find the program and configure it through that avenue. If that does not fix the issue, you should uninstall the Netgear software, remove the Wi-Fi adapter and reboot the computer. After it completely boots back up, you should either plug in the Wi-Fi adapter, let Windows recognize it and install the drivers, (they should still be in the system even after you uninstalled the software). Once Windows successfully locates and installs the drivers, reboot the computer again, (no need to remove the adapter). Once Windows completely loads again, open Start, Control Panel, and System. On the resulting window, click the hardware tab at the top then click the "Hardware Manager" button in the middle about 1/3 down the window. Click the "+" next to "Network Adapters" and verify that your WN111v2 is indeed installed.
Assuming it is at this point, close out everything but the Control Panel and open "Network Connections". Find the wireless adapter there, (may be listed as "wireless connection2" depending on how many times it's been installed). Right click on the wireless device and select "Show Available Wireless Networks"
press windows + pause break key so you get system proeprty window then go to hardware then go to device manager then you can see all drivers check network adapter and check for wi fi drivers .if it is installed properly then your wi fi is ok .then check in router you can access your router with following link http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 for belkin router http://192.168.2.1 type user name as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" then check wi fi internet is enabled in router. Please don't forget to rate my solution. Let me know if you have any confusion.
Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
Before you attempt
to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP
key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi
providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase
access you will be provided the information.
Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you
should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration.
Click on the Properties tab.
The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.
Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you
will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you
will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add.
You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and
you should then see the network you just added in the Available
If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then
you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is
In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want
to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while
entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data
Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with.
Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when
entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up
and you will need to re-enter the key.
Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and
you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wireless
Network Connection and it should work.
occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your
firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi
network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the
connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program
disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the
problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both
of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from
the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the
SSID has been changed.
