Wn121t won't connect to the router

Hi
I have a range max wireless n router that is connected to a desktop (wired)

I'm tring to connect another desktop with the wn121t. I have downloaded the vista drivers and it all installed fine but it keeps searching but won't find a network.

I have spoke to netgear, they said to change the channle to 6, still hasn't made a difference.

The computers are far apart, thats why I brought the netgear stuff to solve the range issue.

Please help

Thank you

    Using all netgear. wn121T will connect, but not stay connected. It bumps on and off about every 20 seconds. I am less than 10 feet from router. have moved 121 everywhere possible. I have two gateway laptops that have almost no trouble with connection and they are 55-60 feet away. I downloaded new drivers today and still no help. It worked at this location two weeks ago. Any ideas?

No Wireless Connection Found in Range

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

When you use your wireless-enabled computer far outside the range of your wireless-enabled router, you definitely will be trying to connect to a different wireless-enabled router.

Correct.

Anyhow the range expander has to be placed withing the range of your Apple "wireless" router (Make sure your apple router is wireless router, if it is a wired router, then there is no use of range expander...! U need to buy an Access Point instead)...

Tring to use a wireless n usb on a g router


Make sure to use the wireless utility of your wireless N adapter and not the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility. You can also change the wireless channel of your router to channel 11 and power cycle the router by turning it off for 30 seconds then turn it back on. Try to connect again. Make sure firewall on your computer is disabled.

Get the driver for the WN121T from the NetGear webset and install it before pluging the adapter into the notebook. Use a wired connection on the notebook until you have the drive downloaded.

Try turning off encryption on the router. If you can connect after that it is an encryption problem.
