Hi Ginger,

To answer your question, No they do not have to be the same brand.

Just make sure you know the information needed to connect to your wireless network, such as the SSID, Security-type (WPA-PSK, WEP, etc.) and offcourse the key/passphrase.

If you need more help, let me know.

Regards Ronnie

Can't get wireless connection to work


Is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless card detect your Netgear Router and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the Netgear Router's SSID and encryption settings before it will communicate with the Netgear Router.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

PC works fine with Linksys USB card, but laptop's NetGear won't.


It looks like you are either using TKIP or AES just put the wireless to use MIXED and it will solve your problem.

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.

You can still use your Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router if ever you avail there service, there's no problem with it of coarse they will say that it wont work so you can get all the networking device from them that's a plain marketing strategy , I can tell you any wireless router will be working for their service.....
