Just returned home from university and I can't connect to our wireless connection as my brother has created a username and password protecting the reuter and has since forgotten it. It's a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Reuter DG834G v2
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get online?
Additionally, I've been trying to connect using a Netgear USB connector but even though it says I'm connected I'm still unable to access the internet.

Re: Can't connect to wireless connection from laptop
There are only two options for you to get online like this:
Use a cable to connect to the router. A network key is only used for wireless connections - cable connections are always allowed, unless MAC filtering is enabled.
Reset the router to factory defaults. This is the main support page for your router (firmware, manual etc.) The direct link to the manual is here.
!!!Resetting the router to factory defaults erases all settings you have done. But since no one knows the password, I don't see another way. I would definitely take this step - you have to do it sooner or later anyways. And then at least you know the password! Have your username and password for your DSL connection ready - you will need that information to connect to your service provider.
The Reset button is on the rear panel of the router. 1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds). 2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
Once the router has finished rebooting, connect to the router by typing http://192.168.0.1 in the address field of your browser.When prompted, enter admin for the user name and password for the password, both in lower case letters.

This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router. To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses. Next install the Brother printer driver normally. Then configure the Brother printer Properties. Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port - Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10 Printer name eg Brother Click OK Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.
- delete the wireless profiles
network and sharing center
manage wireless networks
Delete the profiles
you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to
You have to manually connect to your University's wireless connection. Double 9maybe single) click the wireless icon bottom right screen and then untick the box for connect automatically under your home connection. Then double click on the wireless connection that you would like to connect to from the list of available wireless networks.
You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information
Yes. Keep it plugged in to your desktop. Do you have your home network configured? That has to be done first, between your desktop and laptop, etc., then under the printer's properties select "sharing", and share the printer from your Desktop. Then to access the printer on your laptop, go to "add printers" Select "network printer", then select "browse", then browse your network for the "shared printer", and select it. You will only be able to print through it if your PC is turned on.
have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop... your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.
and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.
I assume it's a Brother printer not your brother's printer right? I have an HP and it's a wireless printer which is accessible through my network, you have to install the printer driver and software on to the other laptop that is connected wirelessly to your network.
RIGHT-click on the intelPROSet/wireless "cone" icon and look for the option to allow windows to manage the wireless device. It may be under "options."
Try using the Windows wireless connection instead of the Intel one after toggling "allow windows to manage." If that doesn't work, try toggling the "allow windows" option on and off, with restarts in between.
What's happening is that both Windows and the Intel software are trying to manage the wireless connection at the same time. You need to make sure that only one of them is configured to manage your wireless connection. You may need to go into Network Connections and RIGHT-click on the wireless connection there as well.
I'll be offline for a few hours, but back up again this evening. Let me know how it's working.
This sounds to be a compatibility issue with either the wireless software or wireless card. Check to see if there are any updated drivers for the wireless card at IBM's support site. If there aren't any or the card still doesn't work after the updated drivers are installed, then you might try a different/newer internal wireless card, or a universal external wireless card for use with your home system.
