Re: NetGear Wireless Router and NewGear WG111 Adapter

I imagine you bought the WG111 Kit. It could but throught the Router and/or the adapter. Uninstall all netgear software and drivers. Unplug the adapter. Reboot machine. Plug the adapter in and install the software drives. Basically your starting over. This will take the quess work out of trying to repair what was lost. After reinstalling go to this web page to configure the SSID,IP and adapter.

Netgear N150 Wireless usb adapter just installed. It identifies router and confirms good connectivity, but continues "acquiring network address" without success.

This means the DHCP service is not enabled on the wireless router.

either enable the DHCP service on the wireless router


Give a static IP onto your wireless NIC card ( Netgear N150 Wireless usb adapter )

Wireless connection - can not renew the IP address

Here's what you can do Sometimes you can simply right-click the computer icon in the task bar near the clock of your XP desktop (If this icon is present). This will go through a process of resetting your IP address.
But if you do not have this option, you can go to START>RUN and type cmd. At the command line type ipconfig /release (or winipcfg /release in earlier versions of Windows). Then hit ENTER. Next, type ipconfig /renew and you should get a new IP address from the router.
If this doesn't work, renew the IP address. You will have to nullify the IP address on the PC, then shut the computer down. Next, unplug the cable modem for a couple of minutes, then plug it back in again. Once all of the modem lights are green, power up the PC again. It should automatically renew its IP at boot.
Unplug the router, then plug it back in AFTER you plug in the modem, but before you power up the PC. The router will need to supply the PC with a new IP address. Good luck, hope this helps or gives you something to try.

I am trying to use the usb adaptor with a compaq presario computer with windows XP, and a router that i got with AT&T. i remember it working once, but i cant remember how to set it up. everytime i...

Te first thing you should do is remove all power from the AT&T devices (modem, router, etc) for at least ten minutes. This will do several important things.
1. It will force your ISP (AT&T) to drop all connections to and from their router to the DSL modem.
2. It will force your ISP (AT&T) to re-establish the connection to the DSL modem.
3. It will force the DSL modem to clear all RAM and reload its default configuration when power is re-applied.
4. It will force the wireless router to clear all RAM and reload its configuration information when power is restored.
The 10 minutes is not arbitrary, some Motorola DSL modems supplied by AT&T have a specified 8 minute memory backup capability.

WG111: junk? Extremely slow speeds and getting dropped a lot

Make sure to set the wireless chanel on to a specific channel. As with Vista there are some issues with wireless connection when the router is broadcasting at AUTO mode. Try diffrent channels on the router and choose the one that works best.

Also, it is advisable to resintall the adapter using the latest adapter drivers from the link below:

Hope this helps.

If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.

NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).

I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)

To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.

I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)
