Re: Capture portal software

What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).

A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.

Re: Capture portal software

We just got a new computer and reloaded Linksys router, we have an desk top down stairs that we put the Netgear Wireless in one of the ports but will not read it. Prior to reloading Linksys we were able to get wireless from the desk top down stairs but was unsecure line. So we reload Linksys router disk. We also have a wireless lap top and that is fine, it is able to pick up the router. How can we get the desk top down stairs using Negear Wirelss USB 2.0 adapter WPN111 to be read.

Short answer - yes!
Any USB wireless adapter will work if you can find a driver for your Operating System. So when you order it, make sure that your OS is supported (Windows, Linux, etc...)

Having trouble uninstalling netgear wpn511

Need your version of MS Windows (or are you using Linux or Apple OS?), anyway, assuming
MSWin XP or WinVista or Win7,

start > control panel > add or remove programs > (L-click) Netgear software > (select) "Uninstall"

but if these vanilla instructions have been tried & aren't working, you may need to do a "system
resore" to a recent system configuration that worked well, then uninstall there, then re-install
all the stuff you're missing by doing a system restore...... if you've installed alota stuff recently
(like me) this could be very painful, and you won't know how far back to go until an uninstall works.

From the Netgear WPN511 RangeMax reference manual
avail from:

Removing the WPN511 Software

If necessary, you can remove the wireless adapter software in these two ways:
• Navigate the Windows Start menu to the WPN511 Wireless PC Card program group, select the
uninstall option, and follow the screen prompts.
• Navigate the Windows Start menu to the Control Panel Add or Remove Program item, select
the WPN511 Wireless PC Card option, and follow the screen prompts.

If your system is acting unreliable and/underperforming in other ways, suspect a virus/worm/trojan
and clean out your system with Avast!/Norton/AVG/Kaspersky/McAfee, etc. then try the
uninstall again.

Doesnt seem to recognize hardware

I had the same problem, but due to legal issues there won't be any linksys drivers available for linux any time soon. What i did was to sell mine and buy a different one with full compatibility with both windows and linux.

Hello mccree08,

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager

•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'

The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

Wireless driver problem

I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at:

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Can't connect to internet by using LINKSYS Wireless-G card

I am assuming you have a dual boot machine meaning it runs either linux or windows and not both at the same time. Linux on the other hand may not configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. You probably did some configuration for windows to enable the wireless card (if there was no encryption windows may have done it for you). Linux on the other hand may not recognose and configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. The many flavors of linux also have almost as many means to configure devices. In order to assist you I will need to know which distribution and version of linux you are using. I will also need to know the manufacturer and model (possibly number and not description) of the wireless adapter to be configured. Warning this may be easy and in other cases it may not be and I have access to few linux distributions to experiment with.
