Hi,
Go to your internet browser and type 192.168.2.1 into the address bar and press enter. (If it doesn't take you to the WIRELESS router's domain page, try 192.168.0.1)
Now click on Firewall (or similar in your router's domain page), and check the Mac Filtering and IP filtering settings. You shouldn't really have messed with these in the first place if you weren't sure what you were doing, but delete any entries there. If there aren't any entries, you can go into Utilities and Reset Factory Settings. That's the easiest way to get it back to a clean slate.
Make sure you let it completely reset, it'll tell you when you can connect to the internet. Don't touch anything while this is happening.
Then just exit from the browser and then re-enter the browser and everyone will be able to connect to the network wirelessly.
To protect it though, go back to the router's domain page and enable WEP or WPA encryption, setting a password for the encryption, and make sure you write it down somewhere!
Also, when others want to connect, they'll have to enter the username and password the first time they connect, but their laptops should remember the username and password for future connecting.
Hope this helps :)

I get a strong signal when connected, but it will connect to someones unsecured network that is close by in my neighborhood before it will connect to my network. How can I keep my computer from doing this?


You can configure it to not connect to any available network. The settings vary depending on the Windows version, but it is possible in all versions to set this.
If you are using a third party WiFi program, you can generally define the preference in network sequence to connect to.

NetGear MA111 802.11b Wireless Adapter is installed and my wireless network signal is strong but after entering the WEP password to connect it won't connect to my network the tool tray pc symbol just says...


This means, that either the password is incorrect after all, or the router/access point to which you are trying to connect has some filtering enabled for security reasons - usually it's MAC address filtering, to allow only specified network adapters (hence - computers) to connect.
You have to contact the person that set up the router/access point.

Want xp software used, which allows me to eliminate wi-fi sites


Turns out Engenius has software similar, but not as good as, XP. It is hard to find and does not allow you to rank the inputs from wi-fi... at least, I can not figure out how to do so. I am ok for the moment. Paul Tietzen

Netgear wireless adapter USB WBN111 Finds my NETGEAR router, but will not connect to my NETGEAR RANGEMAX router. Enter WPA key, but nothing. Help?


Make sure your router has no mac filtering. If there is mac filtering disable it and try again. If issue persist reset the router and set accordingly. If you need further help please post.
Good Luck

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

Can not find a non secure signal


hi..
sadly to say but there are no default key codes,its usually setup by the person who has setup the wireless networks,people are becoming more and more aware of the consequences of unsecured networks so most of them are securing the wireless networks,you can try connecting your laptop wirelessly to hotspot areas like airport,cafe and other places..incase if you want wireless internet from home and if you have mobile connection from verizon or sprint then you can get in touch with them and get wireless mobile broadband which will be your own wireless network and you donot have to depend upon someone elses unsecured network and the advantage of this type of wireless card is you can use the internet outside the home as well as when you are travelling...

Verification and signal problems


Hi Sir F,

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.

A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.

Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hey there Kjantzi, I have found the site for Netgear, and as I read it the update is one of the options but the drivers and firmware are there as well. Check here:

Choose the version for your OS on the left, and it gives you detailed instructions, including the update process, if needed. If you still have problems let me know. Good Luck!
