Question about NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

Netgear WPN111 wireless adapter won't connect

Here is what I have:

DSL cable connected to Buffalo Airstation G wireless router running on a desktop with Win XP.

I am trying to use the Netgear WPN111 wireless adapter on a separate desktop that is running on Win 98.

I had this running for a year, and suddenly the wireless adapter would no longer connect. I've purchased a new wireless adapter (the WPN111) and still cannot connect.

I have connected the Win 98 desktop directly to the wireless router and can connect fine and have confirmed the USB port is functioning.

When I try to open the Netgear WPN111 Smart Wizzard, I get no response.

Any suggestions?

    I don't think it is SE, just Windows 98. And, I am not getting any error messages, just absolutely no response.

Are you sure the problem is between your USB adapter and your router? I've had similar issues with my connection but the problem was with the router itself. I've downloaded a new version of the router firmware and everything has been fine since the upgrade.

Do you have a good signal strength with the wireless USB adapter?
If not try moving the wireless router away from walls or metal objects and cordless phones, locate the wireless router higher.
See if there is a later driver for the wireless USB adapter, if so download and install it.

Why is my connection to my netgear wpn111 so low?


Please follow these troubleshooting steps when you are unable to connect at maximum speed with your NETGEAR wireless adapter:-

1)Open the utility for your Netgear adapter and go to the Settings tab.
2)Click on Advanced Settings.
3)In Advanced settings, make sure the maximum wireless speed options (in this case, 108 and 54 ) are enabled under Wireless mode.
4)Click OK to apply the settings. Your adapter is now configured to connect at the highest wireless mode.

If these these steps does not make any difference then upload the latest drivers for the adapter.In this case it will be version 3.0.
Following is the link that will guide you to how to update the drivers for the adapter(WPN111):-

The OS on the computer is vista.
I think you will need to change the advanced wireless settings on the wireless router.
you can try changing the following settings on the wireless router.
Beakon Interval = 75
RTS threshold = 2307
Fragmentation threshold - 2306
Reduce the MTU 1400.
change the wireless channel.

You can also add the network manually on the vista computer.
open network and sharing center ==> manage network connections
If you see your network listed then highlight the network and click remove at the top.
Now click ADD option at the top.
Then select the option add network manually.
enter the wireless network name and security settings of the wireless network and then try to connect.
to change the wireless settings you will need to open the set up interface of the router.
