Have install netgear range booster to wireless router but says limited connectivity


This can occur when the wireless adapter has trouble connecting to the wireless router.
It may not get an IP address from the router or the wireless adapter encryption setting didn't get an the encryption authentication from the router.
In this case right click on the wireless adapter on the Task bar and click Repair. This will make the router re-issue an IP address and authenticate the adapter's encryption setting.

Do you have a good signal strength with the wireless USB adapter?
If not try moving the wireless router away from walls or metal objects and cordless phones, locate the wireless router higher.
See if there is a later driver for the wireless USB adapter, if so download and install it.

I cant connect to the internet with WPN111


Attach a wired connection and see if it works. Then try and attach using wireless with WEP disabled. If you can in both these cases, then check WEP, use the hex key as your passkey instead of the actual passkey. Also make sure that both your access point and you laptop are B/G. If the standards don't match you won't work.
