Connecting Netgear Wireless Router to @Wire Wireless Router
Im in a situation right now that I have to use an old WIN98Se Computer that is not wireless. I am renting out a room and the owner of the home has AT&T and has a 2Wire Gateway Wireless Router. I brought with me a Netgear WGR614v5 wireless router. Is it possible to connect my WIN98SE station wirelessly thru the Netgear router? There is no phone line near my room. Eventually I will have to get a USB Wireless, but I cant for another 3 weeks. Help! lol

Re: Connecting Netgear Wireless Router to @Wire Wireless...
You don't need to connect your netgear, you have only to connect your computer to the 2Wire (is wireless also) - If your computer ins not wireless Only you have to do is insert a wireless PCI card in your computer or and USB wireless device and connect to the 2Wire Wireless Router

1.Log into router 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
For that you have to change channel type in wireless settings of router. For that connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with following link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 type user as "admin" or blank or "password" then click on wireless then change channel type to 4 ,6 or 11.Set 1 b y 1 and set which give best speeed. channel type then save and restart router. Let me know if you need further assistance. thanks.

Quite honestly, using "B" in lieu of "N" is going back in time. For the cost of a current 1/4 inch USB transceiver of approximately $10.00 each, it isn't worth your time and effort to work with old technology.
Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.
Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.
Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.
Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...
