On your computer, open any browser, type 192.168.1.1 or 192.18.0.1
on the login window, type admin for the username & password for the password. (assuming you haven't set the router to have a custom username/ password.)
click wireless settings under setup menu. under security options, select WEP, choose authentication type as automatic, encryption strength is 64-bit (or 128-bit)
select key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) click apply. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
you can also select WPA-PSK, as the passphrase, just choose that option on the security options, type in a word or group of printable characters in the passphrase box. it must be 8-63 characters in length, hit apply.

NetGear Wireless Router and NewGear WG111 Adapter


I imagine you bought the WG111 Kit. It could but throught the Router and/or the adapter. Uninstall all netgear software and drivers. Unplug the adapter. Reboot machine. Plug the adapter in and install the software drives. Basically your starting over. This will take the quess work out of trying to repair what was lost. After reinstalling go to this web page to configure the SSID,IP and adapter. http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/N101179.asp

Most routers will 'factory reset' if you hold the reset button for 10-15 seconds

If you are on DSL you risk losing internet connection if the router is handling the PPPOE login. The way to tell usually, is that the DSL modem will have an 'internet' light lit up along with the power, dsl, ethernet indicator lights. If the internet light is NOT illuminated on your modem when you get online, don't reset the router until you are sure what your PPPOE login credentials are

If you are on Cable, this won't be a problem at all

Netgear Wireless USB 2.0 adaptor cannot find a signal


Before doing that, make sure your wi-fi is turned on in your router. If the adapter is not seeing a signal, it may well be that your router is not broadcasting one. If you have another computer with wi-fi (like a notebook), or know someone who does, you can always use it (or theirs) to see if they can "see" the router via wi-fi, which will tell you if the problem is router or adapter.

CANNOT CONNECT TO INTERNET


in the installation manual you have a url you can type in...its something like 192.428.111.1...ect about 10-12 numbers...type this number in the internet browser search window. this will tell you first if you have access to the internet. you should get the settings windows for your router. there you can make adjustments as needed for your rounter unit.once confirmed.

if you are having access to the wireless network you set up the password you set in is obviously incorrect when it was set up. first check the light on the front of the wireless router it should have various light on ..such as power,,usb...dsl...and internet..with the internet light flashing... as a precaution please do a repair connection on your internet access point on the computer ur using..right click the wireless icon at the bottom of your screen if ur using xp..sometimes this repair will be just enough to clear up issues.and allow access.

if this continues...you may need to reinstall the unit...there is generally a reset button (very small) on the underside of ur wireless unit and take the appropriate steps..
