I believe a router is necessary, however if you have an IP address and your adapter picks up the signal then I suppose it works. Check if you have an IP address at http://whatismyip.com/.

Go to my computer control panel network connections and see if the setup for networking is correct DHCP should work most of the time. Check the device manager and see if your nic is properly recognized. If not you might need to install drivers for the card.

mycomputer - control panel

mycomputer - view system information - hardware - device manager

Also, sign onto your router and see if the router recognizes the computer.

It should tell you how to do this in the routers manual.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Upgrade of router giving connection problems


You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.

Unable to connect to the internet at times.


Problem #1:
Please give more details about your setup -
  • What kind of router are you using (make. model, version)?
  • Do you have a wired or wireless connection from your computer to your router?
  • By "resetting" do you mean to "repair" the connection via the taskbar?
Problem#2:

This is apparently a well-known bug in Vista, but nothing to worry about. Take a look at the information from Microsoft.

Please give more details regarding problem #1 and I'm happy to see if I can be of any help.

Can't find internet.


check the ip address on the wireless network connection icon,make sure that the ip address,make sure it is dhcp enable and is within the same range with the router ip.you may also change the channel on your router because the problem is may be with wireless interference,you may be using other wireless devices that are running within the same frequency as your router.(cordless phone,baby monitor talk,microwave ovens,even thick walls and large aquariums)

NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter


After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).

I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)

To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.

I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)

Not detecting any wireless networks


You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).
