Re: netgear wg111t

There are several problems reported that may cause disconnection. First is the hiding of the SSID (wireless1.gif network1.gif name) and enabling WEP or WPA encryption. The recommended solution for that is to unhide the SSID in the router configuration.

Second is that there are more and more wireless devices and occasionally interference occurs on a single channel (even from non computer devices like wireless phones1.gif. As routers are often set to channel 6 you may be competing for radio communications1.gif with your neighbors. The recommendation is to switch the router to either channel 1 or 11. If your first choice does not work try the other.

Also watch out for wireless phones base stations too close to routers.

Can i use my netgear adapter to pick up xbox live on a new xbox 360 from stealing my neighbors wifi signal

not really, as it can't share that signal with your xbox. It can only join their network. If you had a router, and you set it up to "extend" their network, then you could have your xbox connect to the router which would be on their network.
Of course this is illegal and I advise you don't do it.

Netgear wireless adapter wg111t will not work work

It's impossible that the wireless router cannot detect your wireless adapter wg111t.
You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.
If that router can see another wireless network available then maybe your Netgear wireless adapter have a problem incomplete installation or the wireless device is defective.
I have encounter like this before so maybe it's the same with.
Hope my tip will help you a lot.
Good luck!
Please rate me.
Thank you.

Netgear Wireless - G USB 2.0 Adapter

Hello, Joe.

Assuming Sky doesn't prevent access to non-sky internet services (if they did something crazy like that, it is most likely a Sky specific firmware that was put on the router, which would mean you need to put the Netgear firmware back on), I would say you have something set up wrong.

Can you get to the internet through a wired connection? If so, wireless is probably configured wrong. If you can log into the router, that would give you an easy way to find out how thw wireless is set up. goto your web browser (on a wired connection to the router) and type "" or "" When prompted, type in your username and password (probably, "admin" and "sky" or "admin" and "admin").

If you can't log into the router then you'll have to try and figure out the connection through trial and error. When you were with Sky and the tech installed your router, did he/she give you an encryption key to use when you connected? If so, I would try "shared WEP" first (providing the WEP key given to you). If that doesn't work, try WPA-PSK.

Hope this helps,

Hi - Well, I do have one thing for you look for -
what type of network access are you trying to set up?

I'd just reinstall the software again (don't worry about the uninstall yet) and say okay if it asks if it can overwrite the files.

With the type of card you are mentioning, you are probably going to have to set it up to access as WEP (instead of WPA's). That was what was wrong when we installed one of these two weeks ago. I was trying to connect to the WPA-personal that I'd set up the router to and already had one computer set up for. I had to change the entire network setup (including router) to WEP to accommodate the new connection! (And WEP is slower than WPA's.)

I hope that is the only problem for you.
