You will need to set up the router first, with a wired connection.  Write down the wireless settings for setup later.  Then setup the wireless receiver on the PC with the same settings that you had on the router.  You should remember that distance, obstacles, etc. will affect a signal.  Also, remember that you may not be the only one in your area with a wireless network, so remember to change the channel on the router to something other than the default, and set up security, at least WEP.

It is possible .. just get youself an ethernet cable .. connect one end to your router and the other end to the back of the pc ( ethernet port ) .. and u will be connected via the wire.. You can disable the wireless connection from the router for that you can either call your Internet service provider or the netgear support team.
All The Best!!!

Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.

As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website.

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

I purchased a Belkin N1 Wireless USB adapter recommended to me by PC World but it is not working correctly. It WILL locate my network but will NOT allow internet access on it. I did ask specifically in the...

Hi there!

Theoretically, it should work with each other. I didn't find any documentation at Belkin's site that states the N1 USB adapter being not compatible with 3rd party devices like your Netgear router.

From what I know is N-Draft's wireless technology should be backwards compatible with both wireless-B and wireless-G devices.

1. Do you have other working wireless devices at your network during that time that you have the N1 USB adapter?
2. Were you able to connect to your wireless network? If Yes, what was your IP address at the wireless computer incase you had the chance to check it?

Maybe you can try to inquire with Belkin about what you've encountered with their device for clarification.

Hope this helps!

Security problems

You are looking for the WEP key that is configured on your router. Use your PC that's connected via ethernet, go to the config web page for the router and somewhere on the wireless security settings you will find the WEP key that was configured for your wireless network.
