I am using a netgear wireless modem and dlink adaptor. Last night I was playing with my configure preferences on the dlink adaptor as I am recieving tow signals one from my adaptor and one form another wireless network somewhere close (i was trying to remove the other network). Somehow my Dlink adaptor can now see my netgear model and picks up the siglan but won't connect me to it?? I would reinstall but can't find the driver disc...whatshould I do??
I am having the same issues. My D-LINK adapter can't even see the network after clean install. It tells me wireless connection is unavailable and it does not see the NetGear Router even when letting windows handle it. Doing a Connection Wizard it sees nothing. Light is on dongle. I have tested the network with my wireless laptop and it works fine. Used static address after a bit of tinkering. Is my dongle caput!

Re: verification and signal problems
Hi Sir F,
You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.
A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.
Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
I have the same problem, one moment it works, the next, "No Connection" I use my Belkin adaptor with my Hi Fi to stream Internet radio. I have reset both the adaptor and my router twice without any luck. Check that your Dad has not changed the security settings on the router. If so, you will need to change the the adaptor settings to match. This adaptor does not have the strongest signal, so this also may need repositioning. Good luck. I am about to try re do the settings. failing this i have run out of ideas
-- check the device manager of your computer
-- for win xp - go to right click on my computer - manage - computer management - device manager - on the right hand side that the netgear adapter is listed under network adapters or other devices
My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation. You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel. DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1 Subnet 255.255.255.0 DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20 DNS Servers: 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP so picks up eg: IP address: 192.168.0.10 Gateway address: 192.168.0.1 DNS Servers: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124
I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<"
yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)
Try to bypass the router and connect to your modem. Make sure you have Internet connection.
>If you have Internet connection. connect back your modem to the router.
>access the configuration page of your router.
>If you are given a specific IP by your Internet Service Provider, use that one.
>Login to your Dlink (type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1)
>Click Setup and Internet > Click on Manual Configure
>My Internet connection would be Static IP
>Type in your IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary and Alternate DNS
>Click on Save Setting on top.
but if your Internet Service Provider did not provide you those informations
> Under My Internet connection Type choose DYNAMIC IP
>Click on Clone Your PC MAC address
>Click on Save Settings
>If it ask you to reboot, click on Reboot.
>At the very top click on Status
>Under Status look for WAN
>Under WAN look for IP address
>If you have values beside from zero it means you have Internet connection otherwise, call your dlink manufacturer for manual configuring your router for Internet connection.
