Re: gamin adapter set up, plz help

Hi Shawn. Does yout PS2 connect when it is downstairs on the wireless? Reason I ask is wifi routers tend to transmit horizontally, and are very weak in vertical transmittions.
If you are connecting while you are own stairs, we can assume the WEP is not an issue.

WEP setting vary on different adapters. Some allow your to use 5 digits for your wep code, others require the full 10 digits. If you are using just 5, say 12345, try putting a 3 infront of each digit, i.e. 3132333435. If you are using all 10, on bought the adapters, this shouldn't be a issue.
Of course, if you can connect to while downstaris, this issue it mute.
You can also try changing channels. Channel 1 has more range than channel 8.
The last guess is that yoour router has less range than the Dlink.

See if any of those suggestions help, and let us know.

Good luck.

Cannot get 2wire router to connect to wet610n adapters. Directv (who sent me this) cannot help. I need to know what to do to fix this issue. Keep getting error messages from 102 to 109,

Make sure wet610n adapters have the same wireless settings with your 2 wire modem and the wireless link status of the bridge shows connected. That's how wet610n communicate with wireless routers/modem. If wireless settings do not match they will talk with each other wirelessly.

I have 2WIRE wireless router i have 2 pc's Pentium 4 and 1 stays connected without problems but when i try to connect the other 1 both die on internet connection i'm using a 2WIRE wireless adapter for both...

Ensure that you are using a crossover cable to connect the two routers together, if thats not what you are presently using, then make sure that you are allocating different static I.P Addresses to both of them.
But if what you are saying is that you are trying to connect the separately, and not together to the network, and its not working like the first one, then I suggest that you return it to the point of purchase, if you still have the warranty card, before its too late.
Hope this helps.

Can't connect my gaming adapter to my wireless network

If the ethernet light -( )- is off, flip the X - II switch to its other setting.

If the wireless light is off, click on the channel button, it should me IN. If still cannot connect, then you will need to setup the wireless settings of the gaming adapter.

First, you need to know the wireless settings on your wireless router or access point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless security settings.

Connect the gaming adapter to the router using an ethernet cable. Flip the switch on the adapter to straight through (II).

Then insert the Setup CD of the WGA11B to your computer. Click on the Setup button once the wizard is up. It will then show you the current settings, so just click next.

It will ask you for the password of the adapter, just type admin.

Make sure that Obtain IP address automatically is selected, then click next.

On the Profile configuration, select Internet for the mode.

Then enter the SSID and select WEP if wireless security is enabled on the wireless router. Type the passphrase of the WEP key. Then click No to complete the configuration.

Connect the gaming adapter back to the PS2.

Good luck!

Download Network Magic (no need to buy, free one will work) once installed look at your network map, you should see your router click on it and note the IP address. Type this address into your browser.

Hooking up my gaming router

There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at
