Question about Netopia 2247NWG-VGx Wireless Router (2247NWGVGX)

Netopia 2247 NWG can't find Atheros AR5007EG WLAN

My new Acer Extensa 5620 laptop with Atheros AR5007EG wireless network adapter can't connect wireless to Netopia 2247 NWG. I ran the installation cd for the router, and it doesn't detect any wireless devices. The biult-in Atheros is turned on and has the latest driver (7.4.2.75). Vista home premium is up to date. No problem connecting with eithernet cable. Any help with establishing wireless connection would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm experiencing similar problems with my Samsung NC10 running on XP and with Atheros 5007EG network card, though I can get a connection it's easily dropped.

    I have a similar problem. The Network is visible and working with other Laptops. My Laptop with the AR5007EG wireless connection can see my network but on trying to connect immediately produces a dialog that says there is no response from the Network. (Instantaneous response).

Wi fi connection


Try to check on the device manager if the wireless adapter and the ethernet adapters were installed properly. If it appears with a questionmark, uninstall it and try reinstalling it without the ethernet cable connected.

If you are using Vista system, after installing the adapters, go to the network connections and just click on tcp/ip then click on properties. Exit from the window by clicking ok until all windows will be closed for the network connections. Reboot your pc and try if you can obtain a connection.

All internet connections failed with Acer Aspire One with Linux


Atheros AR5007EG adapter only WEP compatible. Wireless networks using WPA(2), or anything else won't work. If network is unsecured, it should connect.
