If the router is already set up the usb dongle software will need to be used to connect to the router to allow a connection without the need for a cable as the dongle will see the wireless signal

I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.

Check your settings on your wireless setup and make sure the adapter on your computer is set to Security Type: Shared. That is the most over-looked stumbling block.

DESK TOP TO WIRELESS CONNECTION


First make sure you have the correct drivers installed, go to the Belkin website to get the latest drivers for your device.

Next make sure that your router is set to broadcast, and that is in Wireless G mode. You can find that information at the router manufacturers website.

I can not get my wireless adapter to work on my laptop


First you need to connect the wireless router to your desktop computer through an RJ45 Cable and setup a new wireless network. to do this you go to control panal you'll find (Wireless Network Setup icon) click on it and go through the process, when you get to "network key" select automatically assign a network key then select setup my network manually and next, then finish. once you do that, now you have a wireless network. connect the wireless usb dongle to the laptop and download necessary drivers for it once it shows on the little icons on the bottom right of the screen right click on it and it should have an option to enable the it. if not, then the dongle has the wrong driver installed or its faulty. once its enabled, go to my network places and choose wireless network and click search for wireless networks, you should find your Router's network, select it and click connect and that should be all.

let me know if you need more help and try to give me error messages and steps you did before, so i can help you. good luck !!!

Double check your router settings to make sure your USB wireless adapter is permitted to use your wireless connection. You will probably find this under wireless security settings. I set up my wireless routers to only allow mac addresses of devices I specify, to prevent drive-by or neighbors using my connection.

D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem


You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.

Capture portal software


What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).

A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
