If the wireless connection is working fine it show that your internet security is fine and you can access net without problem
there could be a connection issues a within the cables
1) Connect the Ethernet cable to the Laptop and connect the other end to router E1.
2) Open the command windows (DOS ) by typing cmd or command on the Run option ..
START- RUN- type command then hit Enter
3) In the black command windows - Type IPCONFIG
c:\> IPCONFIG hit enter
it will provide with the correct IP ADDRESS and Gate Way Address
Check the gateway address - shout strat with 192.168.X.X
If it is not there is some problem -
4) Check the Device manager and check the Ethernet Adapter whether the adapter is enabled or Disables or Drivers are installed or not

I have a wireless router, my vista laptop is upstairs in my room, my wireless network connection is working. but the "local area connection" says that there is a network cable unplugged. but i have...

"local area connection" is the wired connection, which in your case is "unplugged" If you go to control panel and look in connections, you will see that you are connected with the wireless, if you right click on the wireless there is a checkbox to display the status on your toolbar along side of the "Local Area Connection" Hope that clears it up a little

Wireless Router showing as connected, but cannot access Internet.

You have _THREE_ separate network connections to check:

1. your router, through your ADSL modem, to your ISP;

2. your computer, through an Ethernet cable, to your router;

3. your computer, through its wireless adapter, to the wireless adapter in your router.

So:

1. Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop directly to your ADSL modem, bypassing the router.
Turn the router off.
Restart the modem.
Restart the computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.249
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 123.456.789.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot your connection.

2. Turn off the ADSL modem.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 192.168.0.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then your router is not working.
If PING does respond, connect another Ethernet cable from the WAN port on the router to the ADSL modem.
Turn the modem on, and wait until the flashing-lights on the modem, and on the router, settle-down to a steady pattern.
Type PING WWW.GOOGLE.COM and press ENTER.
If PING responds, then everything is fine.

3. If you fix #1 and #2, above, then your wireless adapter should work.

Need usb drivers--ADSL 2+ router

Very simple indeed, buy a switch or wireless firewall. You should NEVER use high speed (always ON) connections straight to a PC without filtering anyhow. Go to Staples, Best Buy, Walmart, or wherever and ask them for a Cable/DSl Router.

This (and of course a second network cable or wireless) will alleviate all of your problems. And why do we not have a location in your area?

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet

This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

Ethernet port on laptop does not detect wire

That message always comes up if you have the driver loaded for the ethernet port but no cable connected to it. If you are not actually using the port, don't worry about it. Everything is fine.

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting

Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

I can not get on line

When you plug in the network cable, ensure it is plugged in correctly to the network card and into one of the router's ports at the other end. The LINK light should light up at either end (computer end and a tthe router) and flash when data is being sent or received. Then on your computer, (for Win2000/XP) go t Start, Settings, Network connections, "Local Area connection" for your card, then click on "Properties" then scroll and double click ''internet protocol' then select obtain ip address automatically. this will assign your computer with an ip address given from the adsl modem. all other settings will then assign automatically as well which should give you access to the internet thereafter. What you could also try is from one of your working wireless computers / laptop, see what IP address and gateway addresses have been assigned by the DHCP host (automatic IP address assigner), to helpyou work out where the address is coming from, it should be coming from the adsl modem. check your address by going to Start, settings, network connections, local area connection, then click on the support tab.
