Cant get the 5100 to connect to the internet.


Can you be more specific please ? i.e, is it the first time you have tried (new laptop) or has this problem just started (new wireless software added recently??) .. I do remember an old problem on acer's a couple of years back they had a power saving option on the wireless adapter that would turn itself to maximum by default. You could try this as a possible quick fix or give me some more info and I will try to help: right click my computer / properties / hardware tab / device manager… then find your wireless adapter in the list under Network Adapters, right click / properties / advanced tab. Select Power Save Mode from the list on the left and select Off from the drop down on the right. Press OK and close device manager.
Let me know how you get on, but with more info I might be able to help

ICANT CONNECT WITH MY NEW DELL NETBOOK WITH MY WIRELESS WGT624 CANT GET IP ADDRESS INSTALLED


1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Please click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click on Wireless Settings under Setup page.
5. Take note of the SSID.
6. Scroll down, look for the Security Options and check whether WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-fi Protected Access) is selected.
7. If its WEP is enabled, copy the value of the selected Key number. If WPA is selected, take note of the Passphrase.
8. To configure the computer with wireless adapter, please consider the following:

Configuring the NETGEAR adapter and Saving the Profile

a. Open the NETGEAR Smart Wireless Settings Utility icon located at the lower right portion of your computer screen. It will then open the Settings tab.
b. Change the Network Name SSID to match the one on your router.

Tip: As an alternative to typing in the SSID, you can use the Network tab to view the available wireless networks. Double click on the desired network.

c. Click the Apply button to activate the connection.
d. Enter a name for your profile (e.g. NETGEAR to Home Network) and click the Save Profile button to store the current settings.

Note: The above procedure applies only if you are trying to connect to a wireless network with no wireless security.

If the computer is using Windows built-in wireless program to manage the wireless adapter, please follow the steps below:

For Windows XP Service Pack 1

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
b. Click on the Advanced tab.
c. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
d. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network.
e. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
f. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Network.
5. Select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab. Please ask assistance from the wireless adapter vendor for configuration if using a proprietary wireless utility (non-NETGEAR wireless adapters).

I cant get my wireless connection to work


Wireless communication "takes two to tango". Your computer needs a wireless adapter, and you need a wireless access point to connect to. Most wireless access points are setup to be secure with a password, and to connect to a secure wireless network you will need that password, and possibly the type of encryption.

You should start by enabling the wireless adapter in your computer, and searching for nearby networks. Please tell me what operating system you have (Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux, etc).
