    i have vista on both my pc and laptop. i installed the netgear software and was able to access the internet when my laptop was in the office where the pc & router are. but, when i took it upstairs where i normally use it, the laptop could not access the internet and it won't now even in the same room as the router.



    thank you, LJJKKK for your time and help.

    also, it could be my firewall. i was able to access the internet by temporarily disabling it (norton antivirus). i posted a new question regarding this, maybe it will do the trick.

I think you need to set up you home wireless network on your laptop again. I asume you set it up with your first adapter, but you need to set it up for the new adapter. If this doesn't help, include OS type on laptop. Then I can give a better solution.

    Click on 'Start' then 'Control Panel'. In the Control panel, click on 'Network and Internet' then 'Network and Sharing Center'. Under 'View your basic network information and set up connections' you should see: 'Your Computer=======Network=========Internet'. I think there will be an 'X' between 'Your Computer' and 'Network'. Wherever the 'X' is has to be repaired. If the 'X' is between 'Your Computer' and 'Network', then below that, click on 'Connect to a Network'. (Mine is connected so I don't know what is next). Fill in any data required to make your connection. Let me know how you do.

I am trying to set up my Avertec N1200 laptop with Windows XP to my Netgear wireless router. The router does not have a USB connection, but I have a Netgear wireless USB adapter. Also, I am getting the msg...


The Netgear Wireless USB adapter should be connected to your Avertec N1200 laptop to act as a wireless antenna. The driver for your Netgear Wireless Adapter should also be installed on your laptop. Once installed, click on the Windows Orb button on the lower left corner of your screen and go to All Programs. Look for the installed program for your Netgear Wireless Adapter to open up the wireless utility of your wireless adapter. That's where you should connect the wireless connection and not on Windows Wireless Manager.

Netgear WG111 doesn't see D-Link DIR-655 wireless network


Hi Joe,

I would suggest you to change the wireless channel on the Dlink and use the channel on which WG111 will scan and connect to your network. Also, plese make sure to use the security encryption on the DLINK to WEP or WPA only. Using higher security like WPA2 will cause issues with this adapter.

Regards
Anand

Verification and signal problems


Hi Sir F,

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.

A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.

Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

D-link


Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 192.168.0.1 and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.

Connection using D-link and Netgear WPN111


You have a router (Dlink) and an adapter (netgear)
What is your OS?
Does the computer recognize the adapter?
Once the adapter is properly installed, you should be able to just run the install CD and get online.
If you still have problems, be specific.

Can't see any wireless networks in the area, but I know there are many


Can your other laptop see the laptop with the problem. First check that it is being given an IP address in your router and set to obtain IP address automatically. You may need to give the wireless card an ip address and DNS address yourself within the same range as the others; this way you know the addresses are correct. Just check that your problem laptop has the same network group name, right click my computer>properties>computer name and check the workgroup name is tha same as rest of your pc's. Keep trying you'll win in the end!
