I set up a new NetGear WGT 624 wireless G router (connecter to TimeWarner cable modem) to work with a new Toshiba Satellite Laptop A215 which came with an internal card.
Now I'd like to add a (donated) GigaFast Wireless G USB 2.0 Adapter WF747-UI to my Sony PC (running XP). I have the CD for this & tried an install, which seemed to take. The PC "sees" the NetGear router with very good signal strength, but can't connect.
I can't resolve this using the Windows wizard. I suspect I have to approach this from a different direction..... Where do I start?

Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL - http://192.168.0.1 The default login = admin The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings. Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

If I am understanding you correctly, you are removing the cable from the modem, then connecting it to the router. This is your first mistake. Once you've completed the connecting wizard on the CD that came with the router, you should take the cable that is connected from your modem to your PC, and disconnect it from the PC and connect it to the "WAN" port on the router. Then take a second CAT5 cable, and connect it to port 1 on the router, then to your PC where the first cable was connected. If this does not solve your issue, please respond.
u ned to make sure router has been properly configured.u may give a try by logging into the router webinterface using 192.168.1.1/routerlogin.com
once u have opnd the router page clik on "basic settings-no and apply the settings",then clik on "router status" and check for ip address internet port(should not be o.o.o.o),if it has some numbers(perfect),then clik on "wireless settings" under "setup" and do all the wireless settings as per requirements
