We just bought an aspire one acer laptop. Trying to conect to a netgear router. Help!?

If you are trying to connect the computer to the router with a cable the above diagram should help to explain the simple broadband signal path from the Ethernet or telephone wall socket, to the router and from the router to the computer's RJ45/Ethernet port. Once the computer is connected to the router by a cable is connected to a telephone wall socket or a ERJ45/Ethernet wall socket that has a 'always on' broadband internet signal coming into it, nothing else is required -> launch the Web Browser.
If you are connecting wirelessly the wall socket to the router part of the setup is the same but no cable is required between the router and the computer.
Enable the wireless function in your netbook, click on the image of two computers bottom right near the clock -> view available networks/connect to network -> click on the appropriate Netgear router signal -> connect -> launch the Web Browser.

Trying to conect laptop to virgin media with netgear wireless adaptor the signal is strong but could not conect windows say to contact provider provider gave me number to enter now i am lost

The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

HI can't conect to interten my router netgear

To set up this router you need to "Dial into" it. Type into your browser window. In the dialogue box that appears type the default user name [ admin ] and the default password [ password ] . Now that you are logged in, there is plenty of information on how to setup your connection. Always set your default IP to "obtain by DHCP". These setting will become easier to understand once you are in the router setup.

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 yopu 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.

For the computer/laptop to connect to the wireless router, the wireless card in the computer/laptop needs to be configured with the netgear's wireless settings eg. SSID and encryption etc.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.
For details on securing your wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Please help I can't conect to Router MR814V2 with wireless card Encore ENPWI-G2


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 >, set the unconnected PC to, 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.
