If you laptop has thewireless card driver installed then -
Then you need the router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Set-up your I-mate Jama 101 into a Wireless Modem


Your i-mate™ JAMA 101 can be configured to act as a modem for your PC, allowing you to have a connection to the internet for your PC while you are out of the office or away from home. Your PC can be connected to your i-mate using Bluetooth® or a USB cable.
Although setting the device up for Internet sharing the first time may take some minutes, you only need to do these actions once per PC. Subsequent connections are quick and are explained at the end of each configuration.
Before you start, you must ensure ActiveSync 4.2 or later version is installed on your PC. You can find this program on the Getting Started CD that came with your device. You cannot run this function with earlier versions of ActiveSync. These instructions show how to set up your PC for connection over GPRS, please contact the customer support team if you wish to connect over a circuit switched connection. If you are running Windows Vista on your computer, you do not need to install Activesync. Windows Mobile Device Center software comes pre-installed with your operating system.

Getting Started
1. On your i-mate go to Start > Programs > Internet Sharing
2. You will be presented with the main screen of the Internet Sharing program
You now need to define the Web connection that your device will use to access the internet. If you have already defined an internet access connection in your device, you may select it from the dropdown menu in the ‘Network Connection’ list, and you are ready to connect to the internet. You can go straight to the section ‘Connecting over USB’ or ‘Connecting over Bluetooth’. If you have not yet defined an internet connection, you must define it now.
3. To set up the connection from inside Internet Sharing, go to Menu > Connection Settings
If your cellular subscription includes a GPRS subscription to the internet, then choose the GPRS option. In the bottom right, click “Next”.

4. Now fill in the details for your cellular provider’s access to the internet. You should contact your cellular provider for these details.

For the description field, you can type in any name you wish. For the “Connects To” field, choose “The Internet”. The “Access Point Name” field must be filled in with the details provided by your network operator.

Also enter the user name and password provided by your mobile operator, and any other details they provide, such as Primary DNS, Secondary DNS and IP address. If your mobile operator does not provide these to you, then leave the fields blank.
Once complete, press Done, then Done on the next page, and then Done on the next page to return you to the Internet Sharing application.

Hello,

I'm afraid your only option is to get the drivers one way or the other before you can connect to the internet or the network.

What I recommend is simply downloading the drivers from another computer that has access to the internet and transfering the driver package with a USB key or an other portable storage device.

Thanks,

Pat

Cannot connect to wireless on westell 327w modem


problems like this usually happens in the properties of the wireless setup of your connection. last resort here is to reset your modem, but you have to reconfigure as well the settings of your modem in general. for your problem i suggest you call verizon tech support, 1800-567-6789 and say tech support on the voice prompt, they know what to do with your problem. had the same problem before and they were able to fix it, i remember they had me reset my modem.
