Question about NetGear Wireless-G USB Adapter (WG111NAWG111US)
If you are using windows and it dosn't have a driver of some sort for the wireless dongle (USB adapter), then you will have to hook up the computer directly with a "Wired" network connection, (Perhaps using the connection from the other computer), to download a driver.
If Windows does have the driver and it's working. Go to your Network Connections folder, and into the Properties of the Wireless Connetion and set it to use, "Windows Zero Configuration Tool" to manage this connection; as opposed to a wireless management tool included with the device.
An option should be around there that allows you to "View Available Wireless Networks". Take that option and look for your Router's SSID, or name. It should be the one with the strongest signal.
Double click it, or select Connect.
You will need the security settings here.
Enter it if you know what it is.
Copy them from the other computer's advanced wireless network settings, or if the other computer is a Wired Network computer, then browse with the Internet browser to it's network connections "Default Gateway" address, Usually 192.168.x.x where the x's are 0 or 1.
Get the Default gateway by opening a Command Window, (Command Prompt / DOS prompt) and typing:
This will list the network connecitons IP addresses, and Default Gateways.
Once in the Default Gateway on the Web Browser, log in and look for the Wireless security settings.
Get the Key listed there, and use that on the notebook wireless conneciton.
Hope this helps,
