Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)

Open Question

Ive had a NETGEAR W11v2 for a while and its worked great. We had BT Infinity installed and it worked great with it. But recently the internet on the adapter disconnected and it simply refuses to connect. I select our router. Punch in the WEP key and it simply wont connect. I restarted the computer. Disconnected and re-connected the Adapter. But it still dosent work. Something of intrest is that the "Scanning" screen pops up with two wireless connections but with the same SSID. And one of the network adresses/IPs is just all 0`s. Please help...

SOURCE: netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address

Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

Sorry, forgot to mention this earlier. Maybe netgear offers free Live Chat tech support. Go to their web site.

SOURCE: netgear usb adapter will not acquire ip address from router

Most laptops have a wireless card built in them and if you have one you should try using that instead and form past experiences USB adapters don't generally work on laptops in which case if you laptop has the slot for it you should buy a card like this http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/SuperGWirelessAdapters/WG511T.aspx

SOURCE: netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly

check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

do not connect the USB adapter to a USB hub unless the HUB is powered so that it can performed better. Connect it directly to your PC slot

How do I change from aol to bt internet


BT Infinity and BT Broadband

I think this might be what you are refering to. BT is an Internet Service Provider (ISP). AOL is a digital media service. (meaning they don't provide Internet, they offer things like Email, Instant Messaging, etc.)

Which company do you recieve your Internet from currently? (someone like Comcast, Time Warner, etc.)

How do I connect my Netgear DGND3700 router to Fibre internet (BT infinity)


Hi there
Your Netgear router will not connect to BT Infinity directly as the built-in modem is ADSL/ADSL2+ and Fibre requires a VDSL modem as in the HomeHub5 or the BT Openreach modem. Either of these can be used with your Netgear as a subsidiary router/access point. You may now be able to get a router with a VDSL modem built in but 3 years ago it was really only available from BT and BT did not support other makes.
Hope this clarifies matters though perhaps not too helpful

My printer is no longer working since I upgraded my network to BT Infinity


Did upgrading your network to BT Infinity involve installing any software on your computer? If so, there could be issues with the
BT Infinity software resetting (erasing) your printer configuration and/or installing a new printer driver or setting a new (invalid) printer as the default printer on the system (thus routing all your printouts to the spool area for a non-functional printer).
To check this:

I use AOL as my ISP, with British Telecom supplying my telephone line rental. On Friday 2nd my internet connection kept dropping out, and then eventually stopped connecting altogether. My original router...


If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

Try to remove the adapter to the computer. Uninstall and reinstall the driver before installing the adapter to the computer.

Note. if you got the same problem as before download the latest driver of the adapter then try to reinstall the driver again.

Netgear router dg834gt


Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
