Follow the instructions to deinstall your old driver and to re-install the new.
THIS IS THE IMP BIT. When the Netgear instalation process gives you the option to use the Netgear config - it;s marked as (recommended) then DO NOT pick this. Instead pick the std. Win XP config option.
This then meant that I could control the input of the security key myself.
This worked for me!
Why? Well i'm guessing here but I think it's to do with differences in WEP / WPA-KSP.

This can occur when the wireless adapter has trouble connecting to the wireless router. It may not get an IP address from the router or the wireless adapter encryption setting didn't get an the encryption authentication from the router. In this case right click on the wireless adapter on the Task bar and click Repair. This will make the router re-issue an IP address and authenticate the adapter's encryption setting.
You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.
first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this
go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".
Here's what you can do Sometimes you can simply right-click the computer icon in the task bar near the clock of your XP desktop (If this icon is present). This will go through a process of resetting your IP address.
But if you do not have this option, you can go to START>RUN and type cmd. At the command line type ipconfig /release (or winipcfg /release in earlier versions of Windows). Then hit ENTER. Next, type ipconfig /renew and you should get a new IP address from the router.
If this doesn't work, renew the IP address. You will have to nullify the IP address on the PC, then shut the computer down. Next, unplug the cable modem for a couple of minutes, then plug it back in again. Once all of the modem lights are green, power up the PC again. It should automatically renew its IP at boot.
Unplug the router, then plug it back in AFTER you plug in the modem, but before you power up the PC. The router will need to supply the PC with a new IP address. Good luck, hope this helps or gives you something to try.
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter. The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.
Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
I think you're saying that you want to set up a Netgear from a wirless port. Is that the ONLY computer you have?
It's not IMPOSSIBLE, but it is improbable. By default, the Netgear has the address 192.168.1.1. If nothing else on your network has that address, it might be possible to plug in the Netgear, set the IP address of your computer to 192.168.1.2-254, and link to 192.168.1.1.
I didn't say easy, just possible. Easy would be to use a computer with a wired ethernet port or grab a friend with a laptop with a wired port. It's a 15-minute job.
Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,, or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab See what you have there for an IP address Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same
Most laptops have a wireless card built in them and if you have one you should try using that instead and form past experiences USB adapters don't generally work on laptops in which case if you laptop has the slot for it you should buy a card like this http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/SuperGWirelessAdapters/WG511T.aspx
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.
