Question about NetGear WN111 (DHWN111100NAS) Pre-802.11n Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Connection drops and no available network

Connection drops after 5-40 minutes. Try to scan and my WN111 can't find any available network. I need to unplug my adapter, restart windows and plug it in again. Installed new drivers but it didn't help. I have Vista and WN111 v1.

So you are using windows Vista and the wireless connection is dropping.
Do you have any other wireless computer which is working properly ?
If the other wireless is working properly then the problem is with the wireless adapter. Now you have already upgraded the drivers, then there is nothing much we can do.
If you do not have any other wireless laptop working wirelessly, then try to bring another wireless laptop in the network and check whether it works properly.
If you face the same problem on that computer also that means the router might be having problem

Keeps dropping connection


Hello,

There are many reasons why this might be happening.. You could try the following steps..

1) Disconnect the power from router for a minute and reconnect and check.
2) Try changing the wireless channel and Network name and try re-connecting.
3) Check if there is an firmware update for your product and update if any update is available.
4) If none of the above steps work you will need to reset and re-config your router. ( For that you need the CD given with the router and you will need the ISP settings.)

Hope this helped

WN111 adapter only detects G networks, no N networks detected!!


your problem is simple and applies to most cases. It is lack of technological expertise or lasiness. By that I mean, You did not read the router manual or did not understand it. By default that router comes up in dual band mode. Meaning that it uses 2.4 Ghz for the G and 5 GHz for the N networks. If you want to benefit fully from the WN111 performance in the N mode then you must change the router to operate in a single band mode. (see the manual for the router to see how to do that). (hint: you need to bring up a broswer and type the router's IP address. netgear login standard is: admin and password is password. Go through the router setup and read the extensive explanations for each setup.

How can i connect Netgear WN11v2 to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Setup?


Hi,

You can not connect this wireless adapter to your Nintendo. This adapter can only work with a windows based computer. If you have a wireless router and your Nintendo support wireless connectivity then you can connect the nintendo to the wireless network of the router.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Hi,
You are very limited here, but it's not impossible. Have you tried getting to a wired connection temporarily? A long way around would be to reinstall Win XP with a disc that includes the update. A word of warning though, the fix you have described (KB822603) is already included in SP2 on Win XP...SO... while you are connected to the wired internet connection, you may have to get an update for the driver of the netgear wireless wn111 hardware as well.
I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
