We purchased a netgear wgr614 wireless router and hooked it up thru my hp pavilion desktop so my husband could get my Earthlink DSL internet access on his Acer 5336 laptop. Since installing the router,...

Hi Leah,
If connecting your pc directly to the modem is faster. Definitely it is the routers fault. If it is still slow then it is your Earthlink DSL is faulty.
You can try reducing the MTU size (default is 1500). You can try these values 1492 or 1300 whichever works fine. You have to access the router's setup page to do this.
Click the link below on how to change the MTU size on a netgear router.

Network adaptor failed on my Dell laptop. Purchased a netgear N150 wireless USB adaptor. It asks me to push the WPS button on my router (probably a software button. How do I get there? and what do i do?

I believe that if you have a NetGear router, some of these have an 'automatic configuration' button, that will talk to NetGear wireless adapters and configure everything for you.

If you don't have a NetGear router you should be able to manually configure the wireless network if you have the details of the wireless key, etc.

Hope that this is of some help to you

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 =)

MN520 adaptor will not see my new Netgear WGR614 wireless router

The only protocol your older wireless adapter will connect to is 802.11b. I would say you will need to get another wireless adapter for the older computer. I would look at your router specification to see if it supports 802.11b, I am thinking it probably doesn't and that is why it cannot see the network. I will send a link to your cards specifications.

I don't have wireless network on acer aspire4715Z

The Aspire 4715 comes with Wireless OPTIONAL. Your system obviously wasn't bought with a pre-installed wirelss card. If you want to go wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card/adaptor seperately.

I've just bought a SMC7904WBRA-N Wireless router with a SMCWUSBS-N2 Wireless adaptor. It's probably obvious to you but... I want my pc to have a wirelss connection but can I install the adaptor first...

Best results would be to install everything from a HARD wire connection. Wireless, can drop bits of data depending on interference. I would definately use the ethernet to install everything and then try the wireless.
