It is very simple to connect Wifi router with your notebook please follow the mention below note and get the solution. Side A - Wifi Device Side B- Notebook
Side A -Wife Device
Take a small network cable (patch cable) and put computer or notebook LAN port and other end of cable you put router LAN port.Note:- Don't put cable in Internet port on router,
Go to network properties and click the Internet IP Protocol propertiesand select the Obtain IP address automatically and click Ok.
After Change the network setting wait few second (While you get the connected network message)
Now go to the run and type "cmd" without quote. then you get the commend prompt. now hear you type the "ipconfig" (without quote)you get the IP Address, sub net mask and Getaway. note the getaway (if the router on default setting then you get 192.168.1.1 Getaway)
Go to the Internet explore put the gateway (http://192.168.1.1) and press enter, the router windows will open and for authentication asking the User name & password (By default user name -admin and password is admin)
After login the router now you have authentication for changing the router configuration. mostly you need to change configuration a your router SSID name or pre-shard key (WAP & WPA) configure the desire SSID name for identify the router while searching and configure the wireless security option and put the pre-shard key.
Now you connect your router with DSL cable and remove the Patch cable,
Turn on your laptop wireless and search your desire wireless in few second you get your wireless in search windows.
Double click for connect when you connect it ask you for pre-shard key for connecting now put the pre-shard key and you connect with router.
Now for checking you just go to command prompt and type "ping 192.168.1.1" and result you get " Reply form 192.168.1.1 .....ect" its mean your laptop and router both are communicate.
Because the routers are pre-N they will support B-N because n isnt standard and is still a little touchy. you will be fine. but the downside, you arent getting the true N speed because your comp is running G, if you could elaborate on your computer a bit more im sure we could find an N internal card to replace the G stock. let us know
When you see a “pre-n” product, it is one designed based on the future “n.”
standard, but is not a standard. It will generally only work with
that companies devices, which means if you buy brand XYZ’s wireless
router, you will also need to buy brand XYZ’s wireless networking
adapters for all of your computers.
Interoperability between pre-n and non pre-n devices can be
difficult and even if you get it to work, you don’t gain anything
unless everything is pre-n.
When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.
Check your device to see if it is due for a firmware upgrade. Esp. depending on your ISP, log into your device that you have from your ISP ( whether dsl modem, cable modem, etc.) and then follow whatever procedure it needs to determine your current firmware version.
