Recent got the wireless usb adapter for my Dell Desktop. I have run the software and the device is detecting the internet but it keeps telling me there is a problem because it is unable to renew the ip...


First, make sure that that wireless card is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, unless you are at work and they give you a static IP address. You can check the configuration by going to the properties page of the wireless adapter. You get to this page through Control Panel > Network and Internet(or something similar depending on version of windows) Right click on the wireless connection and go to properties. Right click on TCP IPV 4 and the settings should be set to auto obtain ip address.

If you are using a static IP address, then you have to manually type in the ip address in the window above.

Try the following to renew the IP address.

Turn off the cable modem, the router and your computer. After 10 seconds, plug in the cable modem, after 20 seconds, plug in the router, after 20 seconds, turn on your computer and see if this helps.

Another option to renew the ip address is the following,
Go to Start > Run and type "command" or "cmd"
Then type "ipconfig /release" once this is done type "ipconfig /renew"

If this helps thumbs up my solution!

Netgear N150 Wireless usb adapter just installed. It identifies router and confirms good connectivity, but continues "acquiring network address" without success.

This means the DHCP service is not enabled on the wireless router.

either enable the DHCP service on the wireless router

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

USB Broadband to wireless router through desktop PC

If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like

Network mask:

Network mask:
Default gateway:

In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.

However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.

Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Netgear wg111 problem

When you say server I guess you mean a file server. So go into your server and be sure the directory you wish to see is shared, and that you have permission to see it (Be sure file sharing is on and checked). I would recommend you static the ip address on the server (And for the XBox System Static it also). I think the IP addresses for Netgear is (IP- 192.168.0.XX and subnet is and gateway is don't worry about DNS which is givin by you ISP). If you wish to add this info, go to command prompt and type ipconfig /all , this will give you all your network info (If you have internet now). Hope this was some help. Thanks Jimmyriggs

Need to know the solution

After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).

I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)

To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.

I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)

Help needed with WG834g & usb adapter

Sometimes a hard wire cable whether lan or usb is needed to set up the router first before going wireless. If not it maybe your pc needs a ip/dns flush from the last allocated numbers from your bt router. To clear this:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
