Question about NetGear WG311T 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Need wep hex code or phrase to connect
To get that information you need to log in to your router's control panel. To access that you need a computer (Any Windows Computer) to be directly connected to your router via a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable. If that means you have to move a computer closer to the router, do it. Otherwise you won't be able to retrieve the information.
Once connected via a CAT5 cable, go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. Type in: ipconfig
Press ENTER to execute the command. A list should appear with a few IP Addresses listed. You want to locate the IP Address associated with the, "Default Gateway."
Now open your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Etc...) and type the IP Address associated with, "Default Gateway" into your Browser's address field. DO NOT add www. or .com. Now press ENTER or GO as if you wanted to visit a website. Your router's control panel should appear.
Now you will need to log in to proceed. If you do not know your default user-name and password try googling your router's model name/# adding, "default password" at the end. Example: Linksys WRT54G default password. If the default login/password doesn't work you're going to have to call the company that made your router and ask them for assistance in resetting your router's login username and password.
Once you managed to log in to your router's control panel, find the Wireless Security region. Just browse around if you have difficulty finding it, as long as you DON'T change settings you won't hurt anything.
Once you find the wireless security region you should be able to pull information on the encryption type (WEP WPA), the channel (1-12), and the security key. If for some reason you need to, change the encryption type, channel, and the passphrase for your convenience, feel free to do so. However once you find the wireless security page you have all the information you need to connect your wireless adapter to the router.
Should you still have difficulty connecting, try changing the, "Wireless Mode." Sometimes, "Auto" doesn't work and you'll have to try different modes.
I hope you get the problem resolved.
