Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 192.168.0.1 and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.

I just bought a laptop computer and I already had a desktop. My internet provider is Hugesnet Satelite. I bought a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router thinking I could just hook it up to my desktop...


The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.

Have a new desk top bought the wireless-g usb adapter wg111 to pick up my netgear range max wireless router wpn824v3. After installing the wireless-G picked up internet once but after the system was shut...


I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.

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

Wireless access point connecting to router...


The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask like 255.255.255.0. That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199. If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 are available. You need to assign one of those like 192.168.0.2 to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like 192.168.0.20. You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.


Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.

Wireless connection


Try turning off encryption on the router. If you can connect after that it is an encryption problem.

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!
