Help needed with WG834g & usb adapter

I was on bt broadband with their adsl router. Purchased a Netgear WG834G with Netgear usb wireless adapter. Installed as directed by the disc, no connection. Tried re booting but to no avail. I am back on the old router now hoping someone can tell me where I have gone wrong. The signal strength is good but I cannot connect to the web. I cannot hard wire from the WG834g to my pc because my pc does not have an ethernet port. Any ideas please? Thanks

Re: Help needed with WG834g & usb adapter

Sometimes a hard wire cable whether lan or usb is needed to set up the router first before going wireless. If not it maybe your pc needs a ip/dns flush from the last allocated numbers from your bt router. To clear this:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Don't have a router just yet just have the usb wireless card

This usb adapter will allow you to pick wireless signals of wireless router. If you have a free wifi like hotspot airport wifi then you can connnect to it and use wireless internet. Othjer wise you got to have a wireless router with broadband connection before you can utilize wireless internet facility.

Hope this answers your query.

WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter is not connecting with the third party adsl router when the computer is starting for the first time, why?

That is because your motherboard may have no native support for USB 2.0. Try connecting the adapter to another PC. If this works, then, there is your answer.

You should have an RJ-45 cable connected from your ADSL modem to your router's internet RJ-45 plug then download network magic or similar software to input your user name and password on the router. this way you'll have internet even if your computer is turned off.
