Hi, Assuming that the device is enabled but can not connect, sometimes the stock/built-in Windows (XP Pro SP2) Wifi Connection utility doesn't work well with NetGear. In a Sony Vaio + NetGear MA521, to make it work, I have to download and run a Configuration Utility from NetGear download/support site. The NetGear Configuration Utility is different from the NetGear drivers. Also it may be available in the installer CD that came with your NetGear wifi usb. After downloading, installing and running, follow on screen instructions. Good luck and post again how things went or should you need further information. Kind regards.

I think you may that the "Drivers" & OR settings for this WiFi adapter are not working correctly. What ya need to do is Install the "Drivers" & "Software" from the Netgear CD that came with ya device and set it all up per your manual. Here are a couple of links to help below.. mobileoffice.about.com/od/findingusinghotspots/l/blwificonnectio.htm www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/bowman_02april08.mspx Basically, ya install the drivers & software reboot, insert ya USB WiFi into ya USB port, if it then asks for "Drives" point it to ya CD... when finished then you should be able to "See" ya Access point etc.. and connect.. setting any protocols you wish..

Try uninstalling and reinstalling. If that does not work, try on another computer, if it does not work on another computer, then it probably has a fault. If it is under warranty, get it replaced, if not discard.

Trying to conect laptop to virgin media with netgear wireless adaptor the signal is strong but could not conect windows say to contact provider provider gave me number to enter 192.168.0.1 now i am lost


The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

Hi!

We need to isolate and troubleshoot from wall out. First, you need to check that your internet line is working by connecting your computer directly to your internet line (take off the router from the scene). If that doesn't work, you need to call your ISP to get you up and running first with your PC. As soon as it's up that's the only time you can add the router to the network.

Once confirmed, follow steps from this site:

Hi,

If you want to upgrade the firmware on the router then please do it on a hardwired windows computer. Firmware wont upload on the router through a MAC computer. I would suggest you to follow the steps below to configure settings on the router:

Scan for the wireless network on the wireless enabled computers and connect to the network.

Hope, this helps.

Can't get wireless connection to work


Is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless card detect your Netgear Router and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the Netgear Router's SSID and encryption settings before it will communicate with the Netgear Router.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

Wireless connection problem with the MR814v2


Try accessing the router by using the webpage address: ie linksys is: 192.168.1.1

and disable the security settings and save the setting and then try it on the other computers. If that doesn't work then see if there is a reset button on the back of the router. Push it in for a few seconds and then search for the wireless network which should be the routers name with a strong signal. If it still doesn't work then maybe the wireless portion of the router is going bad.

Hope this helps

Netgear WGT624 router won't connect to the internet


I am in the UK and have found through experience the Netgear's seem to work perfect on a BT line (equivalent of AT & T)
but not on the cable.

I would suggest purchasing a Linksys by Cisco WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router as these seem to install in minutes,
saves me hours of wasted time when setting up wireless networks.

Setting up wireless connection


Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.
