Question about NetGear : WG111U Double 108 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter (NENEWP18)

2 Answers

My Netgear Adaptor keeps scanning after is found my wireless netw

I have a Netgear WGT624 v2 wireless router to send a wireless signal and a Netgear WG111U USB adaptor which receives the signal into my Dell Dimension E520 machine running XP. The router is working fine since I can receive the signal into this borrowed laptop. The adaptor was working great until I accidentally changed some setting on my machine. So I reloaded the adaptor wizard and it now it recieves my wireless signal. But, it keeps scanning to different channels, thus I lose signal until it scans back to my signal (but only for a few seconds) and then rescans.

For WGT 624 v2

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.

e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.
