Re: D-link

Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 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.

You maybe able to configure the router manually, the configuration URL for Dlink routers is usually but i don't know if this will work with your router. The default login = admin and the default PW = is blank.

Netgear wireless adapter wg111t will not work work

It's impossible that the wireless router cannot detect your wireless adapter wg111t.
You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.
If that router can see another wireless network available then maybe your Netgear wireless adapter have a problem incomplete installation or the wireless device is defective.
I have encounter like this before so maybe it's the same with.
Hope my tip will help you a lot.
Good luck!
Please rate me.
Thank you.

Hello, hope all is well i have just bought a new desktop computer with a DWA 520 wireless adapter... we have been struggling to get a decent signal from our wireless Dlink router. So much so we have...

try putting the wireless router closer to the computer but not right beside maybe theres interference with something, your built in wireless in the laptop is prob way stronger than the cards you got there are different ranges for different cards and if you get a low card it wont connect to high speeds or longer distances and make sure your connecting to your routers wireless and not someone elses wireless router, it sounds stupid but it happens ive did it before make sure the right drivers are on the computer for the card you installed hope one of those helps

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.

Netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly

check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

do not connect the USB adapter to a USB hub unless the HUB is powered so that it can performed better. Connect it directly to your PC slot

Verification and signal problems

Hi Sir F,

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.

A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.

Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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!
