I have a wireless router (WNDR3400) connected to a switch (about 10 computer connected to switch), and the switch is connected to the modem. For the network, all the wired computers can see and share...

Make sure all the computers wired and wireless are in the same workgroup.
To share files across all the computers and laptops on your network then -
All the computer and laptop in this network group must have their hard drive or folder/s set to SHARED (a hand symbol will be placed on these folders that are shared).
If there isn't a secutity problem then these folders and easy of file sharing then do not setup users and passwords on these folders.

I am trying to set up my Avertec N1200 laptop with Windows XP to my Netgear wireless router. The router does not have a USB connection, but I have a Netgear wireless USB adapter. Also, I am getting the msg...

The Netgear Wireless USB adapter should be connected to your Avertec N1200 laptop to act as a wireless antenna. The driver for your Netgear Wireless Adapter should also be installed on your laptop. Once installed, click on the Windows Orb button on the lower left corner of your screen and go to All Programs. Look for the installed program for your Netgear Wireless Adapter to open up the wireless utility of your wireless adapter. That's where you should connect the wireless connection and not on Windows Wireless Manager.

If the laptop cannot connect to the wireless router then the wireless card in the laptop has not been configured with the router's wireless settings.

Lost internet service on laptop

First, are you wired or wirelessly connected to the router? Is there any computer that is connected to the router aside from the problem one?

If you are wired connected to the router, try connecting the Ethernet cable into different LAN port of the router.

If you are wirelessly connected to the router, try disabling and re-enabling the WiFi of your laptop and try connecting again.

If there's another computer that's connected to the router and it can get online, then the problem is in your computer. Checked the Network properties of the problem computer and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address.

If you have two computers and both of them are not getting online, try connecting first one of the computers directly to the modem. If same problem occur, then contact your ISP.

If you can get online while directly connected to the modem, then turn the Netgear router OFF for about a minute and turn it back on and try again.

Hope this helps and have a good day!

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 =)

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)

Getting setup

Unless you get into the configuration of the router, you don't have to worry about 'messing' anything up... you just need to know the SSID (the name of the wifi connection they configured) and the password, if it is protected with WEP or WAP... just install the card into the laptop with the proper drivers, and use either the utility that came with the laptop (turn off the Windows Wireless Config in your services.msc) or use Windows Wireless Config Utility to access (find) the SSID of her router..

Let us know if you need further info...

Can't see any wireless networks in the area, but I know there are many

Can your other laptop see the laptop with the problem. First check that it is being given an IP address in your router and set to obtain IP address automatically. You may need to give the wireless card an ip address and DNS address yourself within the same range as the others; this way you know the addresses are correct. Just check that your problem laptop has the same network group name, right click my computer>properties>computer name and check the workgroup name is tha same as rest of your pc's. Keep trying you'll win in the end!
