Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have two computers, one is a desk pc and a laptop. The desk pc is wired to the Netgear wndr3300 and the laptop is wireless. The laptop is running XP and the desk pc is running 2000. It started with updating my AVG anti-virus. It couldn't update, came back with "update server failed", "invalid binary file" or "file corruted". I can't download anything at all. I get the messages above pluse ".exe file missing". This happening to both computers. The only thing these two have incommon is the router and the internet. How do I fix this? I am not a tech, so please put the answer in novice speak. Thanks.

I would suggest getting a wireless router. one that supports the security on your laptop wireless card...then you can still hook up wired on the desktop and you can set up the wireless security and connect wireless to your laptop.

Cant display netgear setup page


  1. Decide on a Netgear router. There are a number of router offerings, and prices and features differ depending on the model. Choose one that meets your needs and fits your price range.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a Netgear router, looking for the best price possible. Consumer electronics shopping sites like NewEgg and TigerDirect often offer good deals on clearance, open boxes or shipping (see Resources below).
  3. Step 3 Place the router by clearing a space on or under a desk. The router should be located centrally to reduce the distance to clients and assure better connections. The location will vary depending on how it will be used. For example, it shouldn't be placed in the corner of a basement if wireless clients all over the house will be using it.
  4. Step 4 Set up and plug in the Netgear router and wait a few seconds for it to boot up. Since the router is essentially a mini-computer, it won't work instantly when it's turned on. While it's booting, the power light should flash. When it's finished booting, the power light should stay solid.
  5. Step 5 Connect a computer to the router, either with a wireless or a wired connection. Reboot the computer to ensure it gets a new IP address from the router via Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  6. Step 6 Open the web interface by entering "http://192.168.1.1/" into the address bar of your web browser. If a login screen is presented, use "admin" as the username and either "1234" or "password" as the password.
  7. Step 7 Connect to the Internet, if necessary. Plug your cable modem or DSL modem into the router's WAN port in the back and run the Internet Connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif Setup Wizard from the web interface.
  8. Step 8 Follow the directions and provide authentication information.
  9. Step 9 Connect more clients. At this point, clients should be able to connect and access the Internet.


GoodLuck ;-)

I can not access internet on my computer whilst i am using my NETGEAR Wireless-G Router WGR614 v9 but it works on my psp


Are you connecting wired or wirelessly to the router?
If wired make sure the cables are properly connected and lights are lit on the router,
If wirelesly, make sure to enter the correct wireless settings on your laptop like ssid, channel and wireless security.

I have installed a netgear wireless router according to the wizard disc and it says I have completed it..however it is still connected to the computer..how do I make it wireless?? If I just disconnect it...


wireless hasnt got nothing in relation to the wired internet ports on your computer. think of it as two seperate books.

if you have brought a wireless router, you SHOULD have brought a wireless card to go inside your computer, just like you need a skybox to watch t.v from the satelite, it doesnt go straight to your tv. just like the wireless signals doesnt get 'absorbed' by your pc.

IF you have also brought, inserted, and installed the wireless card you should follow these steps.

firstly you need to go into 'network connections' and find your wireless connection you have. double click it and you should see a screen where you search for your wireless network, which the netgear wireless router will be sending out the signal. Once youve found your wireless network you can double click it and connect. some people will have a password, called a network key. this should be provided in the paperwork of the netgear wireless router.

My computer doesn't connect to the wireless router. The router works, I can connect my Wi-Fi mobile phone to the router and get internet access


did you set up your wireless connection using a wired internet connection. i have a netgear wireless system and tried to set it up without being 'wired' but you can not do it that way. you have to be connected to set it up, then you can configure it, and after that it should be ok. i actually went back to a 'wired' connection cos the netgear was very unreliable
