Question about NetGear WG311T 802.11g/b (wg311tge) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless not working from netgear wg311 to a new bt homehub2

I am running XP on an old desktop pc with a Netgear wg311 wireless PCI card installed. It worked fine using a BT HomeHub v1 (the white one) but I have now been "upgraded" to a BT HomeHub 2 (a shiny black one). The homehub seems to work fine when using wired ethernet connection but does not seem to work wirelessly.

The desktop pc with the wireless card can sometimes "see" the BTHomeHubs SSID and when I try to connect it requests a network key (which is printed on the back of the hub and on a plastic card which comes with the router) I enter the key and the PC thinks about this for a while then says unable to connect.
Please help if you can

Hi Backatya,

Check what kind of security you upgraded BThomehub 2 uses. Since the hub supports more security-types then your adapter does, I suspect an incompatibility there.

You can solve it by connecting through cable and changing security to WEP or WPA (not WPA2).

This model doesen't have Windows 7 support yet. Try with this driver version http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2566, it might work with Windows 7 as well. Otherwise you'll have to wait or change the operating system.

Bt home hub (shuny black one) wont connect wirelessly


Try to disable the netgear interface and let windows manage the wifi card. This could also be happening if the signal is not strong enough where the machines are.
Is your wifi hub also a netgear? If not it may not be compatible with the cards if that is the case you will need to replace them with diffrent make of the cards preferably the same brand as hub.

No power to keyboard or mouse


this sound like an IRQ resource conflict, you may need to use another kind of PCI adapter.

you may either refer to netgear's tech support for recommendations of which device will best work for your machine.
