Emachines desktop with netgear wireless adpater

I purchased an emachines ET 1831 which doesn't come with a wireless card. I purchased a netgear wireless adapter (wn311B) and installed it. Upon restarting it, the emachines desktop gives me an error that the hardware wasn't installed. I've tried a couple of times and the the card is in the PCI slot. any ideas?

You need a driver for the card.
Download one here if wanted after reading on.. I will have the link below inwhich you can click onto for instant access

Emachines are the worst computer to have. They have more problems since they are manufactured so cheaply. My advice is to sell it and purchase a HP, Or a DELL.
When the power supply gets a spike it shorts out the Mother board instantly
Emachines do not beleive installing a fuse so that is why the mother board goes too

The only difference between the 2 models was the -03 had the 2.6 Hz CPU and the -07 had the 2.7 Hz CPU and a slight redesign of the case.

Graphics, HDD and RAM all the same on both models

If it's a desktop it may not have a wireless card installed on it. I would recommend going to the eMachines website and look up the model of your desktop to see the information on what was included in it. You may need to purchase a USB WiFi adapter to add wireless to the computer.

I have emachines model w 3619, need to run internet from my home wireless netgear router to the emachines for internet ser how and what do i huck up to. on my wireless router.


I would go and get an external USB wireless device. They are great for picking up wireless connections you can get them cheap at amazon.com under wireless USB. I'm assuming that your E machine does not have a wireless port installed. Also you can get a PCI wireless card as well. The link above will take you to what you will need to do this. John

Unable to get computer onto my wireless network eMachine EL1358-53 Desktop


Sounds like it can be One of Two problems, First You need a wireless Adapter, if You already have it and it doesn't work, then You may need to update Your drivers. Make sure that its the proper drivers and not the generic drivers. If doing this, You still have no signal, then Your PCI card/Ethernet card may need to be replaced, Good Luck.

Lets remove the netgear router from the equation. Plug your desktop directly into your modem (comcast, verizon, embark, etc). Let the computer grab an IP and test your internet.

If you are able to surf the internet then the problem resides on the PCI Card. Try downloading the new drivers online.

Hello, Trying to install this NetGear RangeMax NEXT WN311B into a Pentium III computer with a AMD chip, should be fairly simple just put SSID and Passphrase, - IT WILL NOT CONNECT! Please help


From a computer that uses an Ethernet cable to connect to the router,
access the web-server "inside" the router, and enable "logging" of events,
i.e., attempts to connect, and IP-addresses handed-out by the router to wired/wireless clients.

Then, on the computer with the RangeMax, try again to connect.

Go back to the computer connected to the web-server, and "refresh" the view of the newly-updated "log" file. What new messages are displayed?
