    It didn't work; it conects to other unsecure networks without a problem, but not to my Netgear.  I uninstall and reinstall my wirelesscard on my laptop about 4 times and nothing,  It picks up other unsecure networks like my friend next door, he uses a linksys wireless router and conects well to that network.   But I don't see the diference between the two, my netgear is also set up as unsecure wireless network as a matter fact; I reseted my wireless router to factory defults and still nothing.   I don't get it i;m confuse big time;  How come one of my desktop computers at home picks up the signal and connects well, and my laptop with this Encore card doesn't.

    Ok, well is took this long because I  mess-up my computer and I had to reinstall windows XP,  nothing to do with the wireless card,  but now with a fresh install of windows xp home, all updates I still have the same problem, this card is the worse I’ve ever had. 

     

    First try,

    My network SSID: is NETGEAR

    Network Authentication is: Open system

    Data encryption is: disable

    And yes I did reboot.

    Test it and no IP was assigned by the router.

     

    Second try:

     

    When I press connect to network,

    No ip address

    No subnet mask

    Nothing else

     

    Third:

    Yes, I?m using ENPWI-G2 with Encore wireless configuration Utility 1.5 version 1.0

    Still nothing.

     

    I also assigned a Shared-key and nothing,  reset the router to default settings and nothing, reinstall the wireless card and nothing;  but is weird that it will connect to other  unsecured networks without a problem,

     My system:

    Dell Inspiron 8100

    Intel Pentium III

    Mobile cpu  1000mhz

    1000 mhz

    512 MB of Ram

    Windows XP home

    SP2 with all updates

     

     

    Thank you for your help, I hope we can solve this thing..

    it didn't worked, Encore Wireless Configuration Utility HW.15 version 1.0” is running at Windows start-up, I also put in the IP address manually like you said and nothing the only thing I couldn't do was the ping I don't know where to put those numbers; or how to ping.  I starting to think that the drivever for this card is no good.  the ENPWI-G2 shows in the Device manager as Realtek rtl8185 54M wireless lan network.  I research something about this and I think it causes a problem in windows. I'm not sure.

Hi,

On Windows XP, the OS will prevent a connection to an unsecured wireless network such as what you have.

You can try:
Double click on the red WiFi icon, click on the "Change the order of preferred networks",  Click on "Add", type in the Network name (SSID) of your router (you can get this by using the connected PC and log in to the NetGear's Webbased Interface), set Network Authentication to "Open", set Data encryption to "Disabled",  OK, reboot your PC.

Alternately, you can set the PC where the Encore ENPWI-G2 card is connected to manual configured settings rather than Auto obtain. Follow what is in the connected PC's settings except that the  last number of the IP add be different (ex. connected PC > 192.168.0.100, set the unconnected PC to 192.168.0.101, all the rest subnet, default dns be the same. Of course the 101 must not be in use, if double IP add, change to 102).

In some instances, you may need to use the Encore WiFi configuration utility (normally comes with the drivers in the installer CD) rather than the Windows buil-in WiFi Config utility,

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for your "Rating Locked! (?) Elvis4th has rated this solution as Not Helpful".
    There were 3 different methods posted, there are two more methods (a bit more complicated) , but obviously, you won't be getting those 2 from this poster.

    Cheers.

  • Louie  Role

    Post results of the first 3 methods:

    1. Network name (SSID): ?????
    Network Authentication: ?????
    Data encryption: ?????
    Did you reboot:
    Did you test?
    Was an IP Auto assigned by the Router?

    2. IP Address: ?????
    Subnet Mask: ?????
    Default Gateway: ?????

    3. The ENPWI-G2 card preferably is configured using the Encore Wireless Configuration Utility HW.15 version 1.0 and not the Windows built-in Wireless  Connection Utility. This normally comes with the driver CD and should have been installed. By chance are you using this one?

    Hi again,



    On the Dell Inspiron 8100,  pls try:







    1. Set the WiFi card to "Use the following IP
      address”;


    ·       
    IP address: 192.168.0.20


    ·       
    Subnet mask:
    255.255.255.0



    ·       
    Default gateway  192.168.0.1


     



    1. Verify that the “Encore Wireless Configuration
      Utility HW.15 version 1.0” is running at Windows start-up.


    ·       
    Click on Start,
    Run, type “msconfig”,  click on Startup
    tab;



    ·       
    It should be
    checked and included among the normal start-up programs If it is not, you may
    have a utility program preventing it from running/installing right such as
    Ad-Watch;



    ·       
    Reboot.


     



    1. Verify that you can ping


    ·       
    127.0.0.1


    ·       
    192.168.0.20;


    ·       
    192.168.0.1


     


    Pls post back results.

    To perform the ping operation:
    Go to Start, click on "Run",  type "cmd", in the window that opens, type "ping 127.0.0.1", wait for reply;  "ping 192.168.0.20", wait for reply; and "ping 192.168.0.1", wait for reply.  Each try should reply with something like:

    Pinging 127.0.0.1 with 32 bytes of data:

    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64... (4 times)

    Pls post back results.

    It is possible that the reason that in your Device Manager the
    ENPWI-G2 shows as a Realtek RTL8185 54M wireless lan network is because the ENPWI-G2 is using a Realtek RTL8185 chipset. This is most likely therefore the drivers are correct since in your initial post "Encore ENPWI-G2 card ...picks up the signal."

    Soon as your next comment/result is posted will figure out a way to defeat the built-in Windows config and force it to connect to your router.

Encore Wireless Router Wireless connection problem


You need to have a cable connection from the laptop to the router first then go to the router setting by typing something like 192.x.x.x which differs from router to router.This should be available in the manual or in many cases are printed underneath the router.Once you get to the set up page for the router then you can set up the encryption type and create a key which will be needed by the laptop to connect to the network.Hope this helps.

Cannot connect my laptop wlan to encore enhgi-g2 with my pc.


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.
