My new laptop recognises my wireless internet but wont connect
I have a a Netgear WGT624 v2 router and my old lap top a R52 IBM thinkpad running on XP can connect to my wireless internet.
However my new computer a Lenovo R61 running on XP proffesional recognises my NEATGEAR wireless internet but cant connect to it. It doesnt come up with a error or anything but instead seems to just time out.
I have checked that its obtaining the IP address automaticaly and that all the setting are the same as the routers.
PLEASE HELP ME!!

you need a wireless ethernet bridge(like wet54g/wet610n) which will grab signals wirelessly from u're primary router wrt54g,& then a ethernet cable from wireless bridge will be connected to one of the lan port of u'rs netgear router(otherwise u will not be able to do file & printer sharing between 2 routers)Remember,the ip address of all 3 devices shold be of same class.
Maybe that's not the correct IP address. If you have Windows XP: 1. Click Start 2. Click Run 3. Type cmd and press enter 4. Type ipconfig and press enter 5. Look for your gateway address, that's the address to put into your address bar.
Vista: 1. Start 2. In "Start Search" type cmd 3. Right click cmd that appears on the top and click run as administrator. 4. Type ipconfig and press enter 5. Look for gateway address
there 4 different routers in the wgt624 family. this is the first. check your label to be sure it isn't a later model chipset such as v2, v3, v4. if so use the download link at the netgear site to get the correct downloads for your specific model.
