Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)

1 Answer

The Netgear is properly installed and all status lights are lit on the router and the modem. The wireless adapter is properly installed. However, the connection status reads "The adapter is connected to the router, but the router is not connected to the internet." Yet, the router IS connected to the internet. I've already tried unplugging the modem and router, waiting, then plugging back in and waiting for all the lights to come on. The adapter was working fine for months, then it suddenly stopped.

Call your ISP and have them reset/clear the connection. It sounds like your MAC address is locked and they can correct that.

SOURCE: netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly

check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

do not connect the USB adapter to a USB hub unless the HUB is powered so that it can performed better. Connect it directly to your PC slot

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

I need to reconfigure the Netgear router


There isn't really much to configure on a cable modem. If the modem is fully recognized by the cable provider (all lights are lit on the modem once connected to the cable (coax) side), then just plugging in the Netgear router's INTERNET connection directly into the cable modem will work fine. If the modem isn't properly recognized, you'll have to call your cable company and provide them the MAC address of the cable modem. The MAC is a 12 digit hexadecimal (0-9,A-F) number that should be on a sticker on the modem itself - it will be listed as six pairs of hex digits. If the cable company doesn't have that particular MAC address attached to your cable account, then it won't work.

No Internet Through the Router


If changing from a dial-up connection, see warning at bottom. Troubleshooting Steps 1. Connect your computer directly to the modem, without the router. If you cannot access the Internet, contact your ISP. 2. Reconnect the router, modem, and computer as they were before Step 1. Can you log on to the router? If not then: 1. Check that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure. 2. Check the Internet LED is lit. If it is not, troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual. 3. Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual. 4. Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document. If the adapter is not NETGEAR's, contact the manufacturer. 5. Power off the router. 6. Power the router on again. 7. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described here: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thi... 8. If you still cannot log on to the router, Contact NETGEAR: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files... . 3. Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 7.) 4. If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 8. 5. If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 8. 6. If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 8. 7. If the Smart Wizard does not find an IP address: 1. Power off the router. 2. Power off the modem. 3. Power on the modem. 4. Power on the router. 5. Go back to Step 3. 8. Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access! 9. If the page does not display in a minute, check here: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prd... . 10. Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the modem, router, and computer, in that order ? waiting for each to completely reboot before rebooting the next. 11. If the modem's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are not greyed out, then settings for a dial-up connection are being used. Warning: If you are a dial-up user converting to a cable or DSL connection, some software will not work when both types of configuration are present. Configuring your new connection may stop your dial-up connection from working. You may have to configure to connect one way or the other.
