If your device can detect the wireless router and can connect to the wireless network, that means that there is no problem with the wireless adapter. You need to check if your broadband / internet modem is connected properly to your wireless router.
A network adaptor is an interface device that allows your PC to communicate with other computers and the internet. There are wireless and wired adaptors.
Wireless adaptors usually connect your PC to the network through a wireless router and modem. Wired adaptors (also known as ethernet adaptors) connect your PC to another computer, a router or a modem using a cable.
Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it.
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.
I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<"
yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)
Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.
The only protocol your older wireless adapter will connect to is 802.11b. I would say you will need to get another wireless adapter for the older computer. I would look at your router specification to see if it supports 802.11b, I am thinking it probably doesn't and that is why it cannot see the network. I will send a link to your cards specifications.
You should give model # for the router and adaptor or else nobody can really help you. Describe the problem (and the D) more thoroughly.
Try resetting the router and seeing if you can connect with factory default settings. If not then there's probably something wrong with the adaptor or computer.
