Netgear wireless connection

I have recently changed computers, set up Netgear DSG834 router on vista pc - no problems, wireless adaptor (WG111v2) on XP computer.  The connection shows as excellent strength and connected.  When I start internet explorer it doesn't connect and I have to unplug the adaptor and reconnect it - this is obviously frustrating, any ideas?

Check the wireless IP address on the XP computer. try to ping default gateway and see whether its giving succesfull reply, after that do ping and check successfull pinging. if it pings successfully the yahoo website , then you should go online.

The blue light on my wg111v2 in not flashing. is it because i did a system recovery on my pc with the usb plugged in ?

You will need to install the drivers for the wireless adaptor. The flashing blue light simply indicates that there is activity (communications) with a wireless access point.
You can find the drivers for it here;[sku]=WG111v2&download_url=

Upgrade of router giving connection problems

You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems

I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

Netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address

Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same
