WRT54g3 wont connect toAT&T network

I've gone through the setup five different ways and at the end I get the same error message, "check network card and call network". The card is a Sierria Wireless AirCard 860 Cingular and works fine in my laptop. Is this card not compatible or am I missing something?

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...

Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

4. When prompted to confirm whether you want to configure the data
connection settings based on the selected network, tap Yes.
Connection Setup configures the data connection settings.
5. After the Connection Setup completes the configuration, tap Restart.

Had 3 d-link routers that keep giving off the error message that the "network cable is unplugged" all different models at different locations connected to differnt computers any ideas?

Hi, either there is a broken cable or faulty connector some where or the Lan card in your pc is faulty.

1/ Check all cables
2/ start with one router and connect that up by its self, without any other router.Connection should be made as close to the pc. You know the usual setup, modem,router,pc.
We are trying to narrow it down.

If pc still says network cable unplugged then make sure the lan card, in your pc is seated properly.Are you using a seperate lan card or the the motherboard connection.

I have just found that this product was discontinued in 2003,you are probably better of buying a new one.

But any how let me know how you get on.

Ethernet not work

Check in the Device manager to see if all the devices are enable and working.
The one with a yellow ? against that device requires a driver installation.
Is the LAN device OK?
How do you intend to setup your LAN, is it for Internet access or a home network?
I need more information on your problem, together with error messages.

Daisy-Chaining a HomeLink Phoneline Network

With a HomeLink card installed in your PC, connect your PC to a phone jack using a standard phone cable. Using another standard phone cable, connect the card's other phone cable port to connect to your second PC. Continue to connect up to twenty-five PCs in this way on one chain. If you want to use your telephone, modem, or fax machine, add a two-way splitter to your wall?s phone jack or connect the device to the empty phone jack in the last card at the end of your daisy chain. Daisy-chaining your HomeLink PCs and peripherals can create a simple network that acts in the same way an Ethernet network acts on your PC's desktop. In a HomeLink network, data passes into one side of a port, and continues out from the port?s other side. You can string up to 25 PCs on a single HomeLink network, provided that the entire length of cable does not exceed 150 meters (500 feet). HomeLink networks can send data through existing telephone lines without disrupting your telephone service. If you have PCs on two different floors of your house, plug one of the downstairs PCs into the phone jack in the wall, and you're able to network your PCs upstairs without running excessive amounts of extra cable.
