Question about NetGear Powerline Network Xet1001 (0606449057553) Network Adapter

Open Question

I had XE102#1 and XE102#2 May2003. Upgraded to XE103#1 and XE103#2 in Aug2009. New router in another room, so I just got XET1001#1 Connected to Router. All worked OK until I replaced XE103#2 with XET1001#2. Since that did not improve speed, I reverted by replacing XET1001#2 with XE103#2 (to keep XET1001#2 as spare). Now neither XE103#2 nor XET1001#2 works, i.e. when I try to add either device, I receive "A device with the entered password was not detected." So I plugged in XE102#2 which works but is very slow. I have both software programs versions and I have tried changing Network Passwords to default and to private password. Perhaps I got the passwords for all the devices out of sync. But do not know how to reset when the devices are not detected by the software.

SOURCE: XE103 stealing bandwidth

Just a wild guess based on your description is that your hub steps down the network to match the slowest network device on the chain, and it's seeing a device on the far end of one of your XE103's running at 10Mb or maybe even 1Mb depending on the location of the XE103 and the structural resistance of your building. Hubs generally match network speed for all ports where a router is generally port independent.

Look for a small hole in the back with a tiny button in it. With the power connected, stick a paper-clip in this hole and hole the button down for 5-10 seconds. This should reset the router back to default factory settings.

Not all models have this, but most do. Generally the hole will be near the power plug.

The solution I have is quite simple. I use Vista premium x64 so someone else can test it on Xp but it should work for both. In Vista the 1.3 version doesnt work so Facid's solution doesnt work for me.

[*]Get the 2.1 setup for Vista and install it.
[*]Go to your NETGEAR folder wherever you installed it to (Program Files x86 for me) and copy the DRIVERS folder to your desktop.
[*]Uninstall the smartwizard and remove everything in the NETGEAR folder.
[*]Plug in your WG111T.
[*]Go to Device Manager and find your WG111T in the list, Right Click and Update Driver.
[*]Browse to the DRIVERS folder on your desktop when it asks where to look for the driver and the WG111T will install. It should popup with a little message when it is completed but you will not be online yet.

[B]I dont know what you would do in Xp x64 system but I believe it has its own wireless manager like Vista and should be quite simalar.[/B]
[*]IN VISTA go to the Connect To button in your Start menu, It should be under Computer and Network, it should show your router along with a 5 bar network strength graphic.
[*]For me all I had to do was double click on the network and put in my WEP hex key and it conected.

I connected my vizio 55 inch wireless enabled tv to a new Netgear N600 router, previously I had an older version of a router, now I cannot setup to connect to the new router

I to just upgraded to the Netgear N600 router. No problem with my iMac or 3 Roku boxes in three different rooms, but would not connect to my 22inch Vizio WiFi in the kitchen even though it could see the signal. After 3 days looking on the net, I gave the guest setup on the router a try. It worked! the Vizio sees both signals. Just select the Netgear "guest" and enter the password you set it up with. Works like a charm.

How to reset netgear xet1001

You can reset your Netgear router/wireless xet1001 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless xet1001 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

Feel free to get instant online Netgear router support at to fix Netgear router/wireless router issues.

Powerline data transition speed can be effected by many things. Distance, equipment producing electrical noise on the power lines, being on separate circuits, or even running though power filters or surge protectors can cause slow or failed connection.

Make sure the adapters are connected directly into the wall, remove any electrically noisy equipment on the circuit between the adapters, and try to make sure the adapters are on the same electrical circuit. These things should help.

My wireless does not work in every room in my home? It will not connect when I'm in my bedroom. If I try to connect it asks for a passphrase or security?

Depending on the location of the router, the home's construction and other variables - it is very likely that you will not be able to connect from every room. You could purchase an upgraded antenna that will increase your range - look for antennas that are compatible with your particular router.

You're being asked for a security / passphrase in some rooms because you're probably connecting to a neighbor's secured wireless router. Without the proper credentials, you won't get in.

You could install an Access Point, or other wireless device if the extended range antennas don't work well enough for you, to provide coverage where you want it. You might also try relocating the router to a location in the middle of the furthest points you want to get access.

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Trying to create a bridge with two routers

You do not need a bridge if you are using a wireless adaptor on your pc in the other room. Just set up the Belkin Plus router to the WEP security settings you want and make sure the pc wireless usb adaptor has the same settings as the router. You should be good to go. Good Luck.

I can't promise this will help but I can tell you it was the solution for me, I do however have the WNR834Bv2 router.  
My lan setup consists of a win2k fil/print/sql server, two boxes in my kids room(wireless), two pcs in my bedroom(wired), and one old laptop in the living room(wireless).  
Out of the blue one day the lan connectivity on the wireless machines became incredibly slow and in some cases died completely.  Rebooting would sometimes get a re-connect, sometimes not.   The wired machines were completely fine however.  
After much research, the first solution *appeared* to be a master browser issue.  Basically you turn off the computer browser service on all machines which are not designated the master browser.  Research master browser for more detailed information.
I saw an immediate increase in network speed after applying this change to all machines, but not soon after, connection/speed problems returned.  
In retrospect, I believe this happened because as part of my attempt at fixing the problem as a whole, I upgraded my firmware for the router to the latest version:

I say this, because once I decided to revert the firmware to the version it came with as a test, my connection and speed problems completely disappeared, and I have had no problems since.

the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
