Are you certain it is your router that is causing the problems? often times a settings issue from windows. Check to see if the following solution will help your problem. (i posted this solution a little while ago on a similar problem)

"If possible, please do more than just "disable" your firewall. stop it and close it out all together and try again.

worst case scenario. you can go to the link below and use the microsoft updater to get all of your updates. If completely turning off your firewall does not work i would recommend doing this at least once since it should give you the latest updates for your system and may potentially fix the problem without any further intervention on your part.
Click here for microsoft updater.

The microsoft updater is actually a good tool to use anyways since it will give you the latest updates to all of your microsoft programs.

hope this helps you out, and please don't forget to rate my solution"

Your desktop may already enjoy a wired broadband Internet connection, but a Wi-Fi connection will afford you greater latitude in Internet use.

Wires will not be necessary, so you can establish your PC in any room or area of your home or office and still stay connected to the Internet.

Fortunately, you only need a wireless router, broadband modem, and ethernet cable to make this Wi-Fi connection.

Disconnect your modem from the wall socket it's plugged into.

Connect the ethernet cable to the back of the modem.
There is a clearly marked ethernet port here.

This port will appear to be an oversized telephone jack.
Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.

This port will look exactly the same as the one on the rear of the modem.
Plug the broadband modem back up to the wall socket and wait for it to power on, initialize and detect its new connection to the wireless router.

Locate the manual that shipped with your wireless router.
Find the URL, or web address, that is contained within the pages of this manual.

This special web address is used to set up your router's network and security permissions.
Also, be sure to locate the default password provided within the pages of the manual.

Enter the URL into your web browser and allow the page to load.
When prompted, enter the password that you found within the instruction manual.

Begin setting up your new wireless network.
You will be asked for an "SSID," which is just a moniker for your new network.

This will be the name seen when the network is listed in an available network list.
Choose whatever name you like.

Select a password for your new network.
While encrypting your network is optional, it is highly recommended.

Along with the password, choose "WPA" security encryption.
"WEP" will also be an option but it is an older security protocol that is technologically inferior to WPA.

Click "Apply" to save your changes.

Click on the wireless icon on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar on your PC's desktop. Select your network's SSID from the drop-down list.

Enter the password you chose for your network.
You will now be connected to WiFi Internet on your PC desktop and free to browse the Web.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Is this system wifi compatible


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll http://support.microsoft.com/

How do i connect a netgear wireless router to comcast modem


Unplug your Comcast modem from your electrical outlet. Connect the Ethernet cord from the back of your Comcast modem into the Ethernet port labeled "Internet" on your new router. Connect an available Ethernet port from the back of the new router to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer.


Plug your cable modem into an electrical outlet. Plug your new router in an electrical outlet.


Reboot your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control panel." Click "Network and sharing." Select "Set up a new home network."

Click on the option for a router or cable modem when prompted by Windows to select your hardware. Your computer will attempt to access your new router. When the brand name for your router is listed, double-click it so your computer can configure itself to the new router.


Create a new name for your home network and create a unique password to prevent unauthorized users on your network. Your computer may reset your Comcast modem and router so your new changes can take effect.

Just installed win 7 and can't get internet on


Can't connect to the Internet using Windows 7 OS.
1. If you haven't already done so, run the Network troubleshooter to see if it can help diagnose and solve your problem.
Open the Network troubleshooter by right-clicking the network icon in the notification area, and then clicking Troubleshoot problems.
2. Make sure that all cables are connected (for example, make sure your modem is connected to a working phone jack or cable connection, either directly or through a router).
3. Restart your modem, and then restart your router. Remove the power cable from the modem and router. After all lights on the device have gone out, wait at least 10 seconds, and then plug the modem and router back in. Some modems have a battery backup that prevents the lights from going out. For this type of modem, press and quickly release the Reset button.
4. Check your router. Because of the new networking features in Windows Vista andWindows 7, some older network routers are not fully compatible with these versions of Windows and can cause problems. You can test your router to see whether it is fully compatible with Windows 7 by running the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool. Or, for a list of routers that are compatible with Windows Vista, go to the WindowsCompatibility Center website.

I tried to connect netgear WG111v2 but got problem istallation is not able to connect wirelesly


Uninstall any software the router came with on any of the computers, it's not needed.

Reset the router by holding down the small pinsized hole in the back for 20 seconds.

Make sure modem is hooked up to router IN port.

Make sure all Windows updates are installed in a PC.

Make sure wireless card switch is in the on position.

DO NOT encrypt anything at first, try connecting under an open network. Meaning do not change any of the routers factory settings. If you can connect, continue form here to encrypt. Hope this helps!!!!
