Question about Computers & Internet

Hi, I purchased a Netgear WNDR3700 router and connected all of my computers/adapters except for one desk top PC, which connects to the Network but not the internet. It's a Linksys WUSBG54v2. How do I get it to play nice with the new Router?

    I already have the router configured and working on all computers except the one I'm having trouble with, so this suggestion did not solve the problem with the one computer and Linksys network adapter.

    I'm confused by your reponse.

    I don't have a Netgear WRT-642g.

    My Router is a Netgear WNDR3700 and the adapter on the PC that won't connect to the Internet via the Router is a Linksys WUSBG54v2. It worked fine with the Linksys Router that failed after only one year of use (that I just replaced with the Netgear WNDR3700).

What is the operating system of the PC?

Please try this.
Check the network properties if its getting the correct IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS. If it has firewall, please check that its not blocking the Internet connection.

The problem was – there’s no setting in the Netgear WRT-642g configuration page for “hub mode.”
Searching yielded little helpful information. A few nuggets led me to do a bit of experimentation, and I discovered a working solution.
The trick: Connect the second router (the one you want to use as a hub) to the first using one of the second’s LAN ports, not it’s WAN port. That is, don’t use the port you would use to connect this router to your cable modem. Instead, use one of the other ports, usually labeled 1-4.
Doing this allowed me to use my Netgear router as a hub, even though it’s not officially supported.

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Also set channel type to 11 which gives best speed in wifi.
Configure your router with above method then it gives good result.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Lenovo T430 wireless connection issue with Netgear WNDR3700


Hi, First off you need to see if your lenovo wireless adapter is working so see if you can connect to a different network at your workplace or Tim Hortons or McDonald's has fre wi-fi. After that go home and reset your Netgear router it should have a small reset button on the back of the unit. then try to connect again.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

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

NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter


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)

Capture portal software


What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).

A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
