Question about NetGear (IM-WG511T) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Laptop wireless internet connectivity

I have an IBM think pad purchased used from a friend. I have a Net Gear wireless router and a PC card for the laptop. How can I boost the signal to receive it farther away. At 50 feet it is only 30 percent. A friend logged on with their computer in the same location and had a signal at 80 percent. I don't know what kind of wireless card they had since it was built in.

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.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Can i use a wireless router if i have dial up connection to the internet?


yesinstall a wireless card in your pc and connect to the router and run the network setup wizard on your pc and choose the option that your computer is connected to the internet and all other computers connect to the net through your pc. then you should be able to use the internet connection while you are connected.

Major note though. The wireless router should NOT be using 192.168.0.1 as its IP address if it is it wont workchange the LAN ip address of the router to 192.168.1.1 instead

Wireless routers, what are they for?


the wireless router is the access point where the signal is produced, this gets hooked to your cable/dsl modem to share the internet connection wirelessly, your laptop needs a little wireless card to be able to connect to that router, these are cheap and come in a variety of different types, the simplest is to go to Best Buy and pickup a USB wireless adapter and plug it in and put in the cd that comes with it and install it and then Windows should take care of the rest as long as your router is on and there is no password applied.

Laptop Internet Connection


The LAN pc card on you laptop is not recognizing the connection to the router that's why you are getting an erro saying cable is unpluggged. Try to user a different ethernet cable or try the laptop to the modem check if you will still get the same error so that we'll know if its a fault with the lan card or if it's just with the cable.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
