Signal strength went from Good to Low


Either move the computer closer to the router or the router closer to the computer. You could also try connecting the usb adapter to a usb hub to remove any interference from the computer.

My adapter speed never goes over 11Mpbs even though it did on another computer and when I first connected it to this laptop. The signal strength is excellent and never drops out. Is it a software problem?


Laptop computers has more restrictions than any other regular desktop computers.

You may need to check if the firewalls in your laptop is enable. Using any wireless device will best work if the firewall setting in the laptop is disable.

Hope this help!

You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.

first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this

go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".

ADAPTER not working


Check the distance bet computer and the Router.
Donot keep your router near television, microwaveoven or any radio active devces, it may reduce the performance.
Check the Antena terminals for any loose connections.
If possible check your wireless signal strength with another Laptop, to diagnose the router is working fine.
If everything seems to be fine, it maybe the issue with the Adapter.

Very low signal


Given that you have a '802.11B' device, the maximum speed will be 11 Mbps.

While your wireless router is communicating at that speed to your computer, the router is communicating with your ISP at a much-lower speed, depending on how much you pay per month to your ISP for the agreed-upon level of service, e.g., "ADSL-lite" or "High-Speed".

So, unless you pay more per month to your ISP, the "bottleneck" will be between your ISP and your router, *NOT* between your router and your wireless adapter.

Now, as to the "low signal strength", that's a matter of the distance between the router and your computer, and the number and composition of the walls and ceilings in the middle.

If you move your computer closer to the router, the signal-strength should become "good" or "excellent".

Belkin 802.11a/b/g usb adapter


It sounds like the plug on the USB wireless dongle is bad or the usb ports in your computer are having problems. My Toshiba notebook does the same thing with the two usb ports near the front of the computer but works fine from the two on the back. When you have a flash drive plugged into the USB do you frequently get the new hardware found message as if you had unplugged and replugged the drive? If you have a powered external USB hub try plugging that in first then when that is stable plugging the USB wireless dongle into the hub rather than the computer. If it is stable then the problem is on the power pin in the USB port of your computer. Good Luck

What operating system are you using, Win XP?
Go to the control panel - look at Network Connection, click on properties on your USB adapter, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then Properties, make sure Obtain an IP address automatically is selected.
Also make sure your USB adapter settings (SSID, WEP/WAP etc) matches your Access Point settings.
