Question about NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I talked to provider (AT&T) about my problem and my internet provider and they said that my adapter is not communicating to computer to give me on-line access. I need to know what do I need to do get my internet access up and going for my desk top computer using the NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter. My computer with AT&T 2 wire router is allowing me to use the internet but not the desk top computer using the NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter. The providers did walk me through check to see if adapter was working and it is but it is not allowing me via the "access point" (hopefully I am saying that right. Something seems to blocking communication.
After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).
I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)
To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.
I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)
