Question about NetGear WG111T 802.11g/b (E82321) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Unable to search internet

I downloaded the latest drivers for XP Home from the Netgear website and installed the drivers/utility for the WG111T adapter. After completing the necessary configurations, I tried to connect to the internet, however it did not work. My signal from the router (also a Netgear, WNR834B - 802.11N) appeared to be fine, but after opening up the Adapter's utility to try and see what was going wrong, I saw that it is apparently cycling through multiple channels repeatedly, using each channel for a few seconds at most. During the cycling, when it uses the channel that my network is using, the connection is indicated as good and it appears that the Adapter should be working fine, but seconds later it cycles to a different channel, etc. I tried to find a configuration setting that regards this, but I could not. It seems like if it would simply use the correct channel that my network is on, it should work properly; instead it repeatedly searches through multiple channels. I'm not too savvy on this stuff, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Unfortuantely, my roommate (who owns the router, and the house for that matter) is using the N capability. I've decided to just return the adapter and try another. I may try your suggestion simply to see if it would work. Thank you for the advice though, it is appreciated.

I've seen this trouble with G adapters connecting to Pre-N wireless the router...change your mode to G-only see if that works. Your adapter won't do N anyway so you're not missing out on anything. Good luck

Hey there Kjantzi, I have found the site for Netgear, and as I read it the update is one of the options but the drivers and firmware are there as well. Check here:
Choose the version for your OS on the left, and it gives you detailed instructions, including the update process, if needed. If you still have problems let me know. Good Luck!

WG111T config problems

Download version 1.3

I was running into the same issue when I formatted my computer. It worked fine before that. I downloaded the version 1.3 though and it installed easily. There are step by step instructions how to install it as well. Hope this helps!


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.
