Will not connect to internet

I bought Netgear for my pc and laptop and it works fine for these and my son's when he comes but I bought another for my partner and I just cannot get it to connect to the internet. It states that I have to put password etc but it will not accept these and states that I have to put a series of numbers in but when I first got netgear i changed to my own password etc so they should work on this new one but it does not. Does it need a driver or pc card. It did say that it was wifi enabled. Please help as this is driving mer crazy trying to figure it out. thank you

Hi leapam31,

What your router is asking for is a secure wep login. You can provide your partner this number by loging into your router, and go to the securty section of the menu, and generate a new wep key. It will then generate a key, that you should right down, because this new key may block out the existing two computers that already have access. When you log into the router on those machine, you may need to put the same key in.

Good Luck

Mark

When you plugged it in did a number light up on the front of the netgear?
If not then the laptop is not using its ethernet port. Switch the port on and try again.
If you do get a number coming up, then the netgear is talking to the laptop and something else may be the issue.
It should be automatic.

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.


The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.

Hi
I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.


Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Web pages won't display


You have to call netgear again then ask them where you can find the MTU settings of the router. The default value is 1500. You can change it to 1450 first then 1400 if the first value won't work.

Internet connection to home PC after adding netgear wireless to laptop


Hi,
You have'nt specified whether your pc is connected to netgear or not. If yes then firstly it should be hard wired into the router to check connectivity.
Now on your PC Click start>run>type in cmd>in the command prompt screen that opens up type in ipconfig and press enter
it will display the ip address
if ip address is 192.168.0.2
and default gateway is 192.168.0.1 and still you're not able to open webpages run this command in the same command prompt screen netsh winsock reset catalog.......
You''ll be able to access webpages...
If ip address comes out to be something else get the drivers of nic card reinstalled on your PC.
