http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configurethe wireless settings.

New netgear adapter on my laptop & can't get on the internt


I think you need to set up you home wireless network on your laptop again. I asume you set it up with your first adapter, but you need to set it up for the new adapter. If this doesn't help, include OS type on laptop. Then I can give a better solution.

Wireless network setup


Hi,

Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Connection problems


If Internet sharing is set up correctly one pc will be the one that connects directly to internet, the other will connect through a gateway or other device connected to your network. Check they have'nt both got the same IP address. Is this related to last problem, did you get the wireless card working wirelessly online?

Connection problems


Is wireless connection enabled in your routers wireless settings and not encrypted in any way until a connection is established. Make sure your router is set to enable DHCP, as this will give your wireless card an IP address automatically. Ensure your card is set to obtain an ip address automatically. If not look in your routers setup(normally by typing 192.168.2.1, in your internet browser) to see what IP address and DNS address it has given your connected pc (eg 192.168.2.3). Then go into your cards properties and use the IP address 192.168.2.4, but the same DNS address(probably 255.255.255.0); then re start the wireless pc and the router if neccasary. If you still get no connection, ensure wireless light is on; on your router, and you have no obstacles in the way of the signal. If you are using WEP encryption it is normally a Shared key setting rather than an open key setting. Please reate this solution.
