Question about Zyxel (NWD-370N) (WNNWD370N) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wierd Netwrork Problems

Ok, so I just got a wireless card for my pc after moving to a new house where I can't get to the router with an ethernet cable...the card in question is a zyxel nwd-370n, and the nrouter is a BT Voyager 2091.

After installing the card, I tried to connect to the network using the software with the card. It found the network, let me enter the security key, and then connected - however, it can't obtain a network address.

Then I followed the instructions to use the windows' own wireless software and it can't even find any networks to connect to, even though it could see them through the internal software, and work laptop right nxt to the pc can see them. Got no idea what to do as i can't figure out why windows can't see the networks, and I can't find an options in the zyxel software to set-up a static IP rather than automatically getting one....

Any thoughts, help is muchly needed!

Thanks

    Tried that (uninstalled the software, removed the card, reinstalled the sofware as driver only, reinstalled the card...it says in manual to do software first). Had exactly the same problem, window's couldn't see the network - just to check I reinstalled the software that came with it and sure enough, could see the network again through that but not acquire IP address.

    Day after, had made no changes to the pc at all and couldnt' even see the networrk through the card software, (network was fine as work laptop right next to pc could see it with no difficulty at all)

    Really am stumped, is so immensely annoying not having access to net on own pc, plus I need this sorted so I can get on to next bit where I use pc's net connection to let xbox360 go online!

II have been trying to connect wirelessly my new HP lap top to an old series 600 but the computer can't connect even after entering the key. It works ok on cable.can any one help


1. your issue is due to a a wireless laptop is not compatible with the old router or
you may need a firmware upgrade.
2. the cold compute may be able to connect via a cord (Ethernet) but not wirelessly due to an outdated driver for the network card ( the card will need updated drivers also) if it is a wireless b card then the ability to us a WAP key will not be possible
because your card was designed to use WEP key.
3. a new wireless G card installed to the old PC will allow connectivity if the wireless card is backwards compatible.
4. most all PC's can connect via a Ethernet cord they are all designed that way and have not changed for the 20 or 30 years they have been in use.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Belkin router, apple lap top and del Inspiron are the three I have in the house.How to connect the new computer to the router?


You should be able to hardwire (Ethernet cable) those pc's to the router. If it is wireless and you are not running cables directly from the router to the pc's, you have to have wireless cards installed in each of those computers in order to pick up the 802.11 wireless signal. The wireless software on the pc will find the router as long as the router is in range. If you have setup the router properly you should be fine. You may just need to power out and reboot the modem and router after connecting the pc's in order to assign new IP's to each computer receiving a wireless signal.

If you have any problems please respond with as much information as possible including model numbers and ISP provider.

We have WiFi set up at our house from the main desktop, we have 2 laptops that have built in wireless cards. We put in another desktop in the guest room for our guests to use but instead of buying a usb...


hey there joselko,
i'm chris from sw scotland. i have the same setup - 2 wireless laptops and a pc physically connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
you just plug the ethernet cable into the 'out' hole in the back of the router and into the ethernet port in the back of the PC. then start your PC. go to control panel, then internet settings, then hit the 'connection' tab, then click the radio button that says 'never dial a connection'.
you may have to reboot, but not necessarily.
both the laptops should continue to work wirelessly and the PC should now connect directly to the internet using the router.
if you have any problems, feel free to call me on 01776840273, and ask for chris, i'll be glad to help. you can also skype me on christophergrams or using the skype number 01414165437.
good luck.
chris

Network problems connecting to internet


Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.

I have a new wireless router and the set up cd cant find my router even tho i can access the internet through a wire


if you have a wireless router that has some lan ports.. there is no problem..
  1. You should connect an ethernet cable from wall jack directly into the WAN port on your router/access point.
  2. We recommend that you have some kind of encryption enabled- at least WEP, and preferably WPA or WPA2 which are far more secure than WEP.
  3. We also recommend (for increased security) that you enable MAC filtering. This feature allows you to identify which wireless cards the router will "speak" to, and it can specify that your router ignore all other ethernet cards. This ensures that only computers you approve of can use your access point. You can find your MAC address by clicking Start -> Run, typing "cmd", clicking "Ok", and then typing "ipconfig /all" in the console window that pops up. Your MAC address is listed next to Physical Address. If you have more than one network adapter, such as an ethernet and wireless, you probably have more than one MAC address. Make sure to use the one from the wireless adapter.
then:
  • Open Internet Explorer (with the computer connected to the Router)
  • Enter 192.168.1.1 into the Address Bar, push Enter
  • Leave the User Name field blank
  • Under the password field enter “admin
  • Click “OK
some routers have a quick set up... try that firts.. then.. you could get to make your connection a bit secure... by changing the password.. its really simple.. just tour around the options.. and if you need help, just post your problems

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:

You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.

Wireless


Are you doing this wirelessly or with a wire (Ethernet cable).?
Do the setup with an ethernet cable first, then try wireless after setting it up.
