Jane -- several things are required for internet access.
Lets go through step by step and assure the pieces are in place.

I will assume you have a second machine working with the router (wired or wireless does not matter). I would like you to try the following on both machines at let me know what happens.

First you can connect to the router and not have access to the internet. This first to determine the IP configuration values are correct for your network. (assumes Windows XP and probably Vista) - using the working machine

Click Start then All Programs the Accessories then Command Prompt a new window will open -- in that window type the following (one space only before the /)

ipconfig /all

and press enter -- record the following in the responses

IP Address --------------- probably 192.168.0.?
Subnet Mask ------------ probably 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway -------- probably 192.168.0.1
DNS Address(es) ------ may be more than 1

on your son's laptop do the same -- you should see the following if the configuration is right.
IIP Address --------------- probably 192.168.0.?
Subnet Mask ------------ same as working machine
Default Gateway -------- same as working machine
DNS Address(es) ------ same as working machine

Now test the connection to the router

in the same window as before enter the following command (replace the 192.168.0.1 with the default gateway from the working machine if different)

ping 192.168.0.1

The working machine should display 4 messages with elapsed times indicating the ping works.

Your son's machine may display 4 timeout messages indicating it does not work. If the ipconfig above is wrong especially in matching areas to the working machine that could explain the problem. It could also be that the adapter requires additional wireless configuration such as a WEP or WPA password or passphrase, or connection to your network name (SSID) if it is hidden.

Please respond to this issue with a comment telling me what matched in the two ipconfigs and whether or not the ping works hopefully yes at least on the working machine and I will probably be able to provide a solution to the problem.

Netgear wirless - installed on toshiba satellite a45 - S151 will not connect to internet router = comcast - linksys also causes conflict with connection of other wireless computer


Presumably, you have configured your wireless router:
* SSID (your "network name")
* encryption-level ('WPA' or higher security)
* password for your network

With that information, any wireless device (iPod Touch, iPhone, NetGear wireless adapter) should be able to connect to your wireless router.

> conflict with connection

Exactly what error-message are you getting?

Netgear WG111 doesn't see D-Link DIR-655 wireless network


Hi Joe,

I would suggest you to change the wireless channel on the Dlink and use the channel on which WG111 will scan and connect to your network. Also, plese make sure to use the security encryption on the DLINK to WEP or WPA only. Using higher security like WPA2 will cause issues with this adapter.

Anand

Cannot connect to wirless with adapter on new computer


Although this model appears to support Windows Vista according to the manual for it (ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WG111T_UM_04Feb07.pdf) the 64 bit version is not mentioned and, therefore, probably not supported. I'd take the wireless adapter back and find one that supports Vista 64 for certain. Some do.

Connecting my mobile


I an assuming that you are trying to access the phone through the sony software, which, i think asks how you intend to connect to your pc, if so try using a different usb port. if you are using Vista then there are compatability issues that ave not been resolved yet.
