Question about NetGear WG111T 108 Mbps 802.11g Wireless USB 2.0 Network Adapter (NETWNGWG111T)

Open Question

I just purchased a PowerMac4 which is as old as dirt and has no wireless capabilities itself. Now I tried to 'fix' that problem by getting a NetGear WG111v3 (slowest of its kind) wireless adapter. I got through the point of installing it and everything. I opened it and got a message to enable WLAN card in the System preferences>Networking menu. This is the part where I skipped it over (because it seems nobody on the web has a clue about how to do that...) and I went on to connecting to a network (it showed all of the ones in range perfectly) and typing in the key in the Available connections tab. When I clicked 'Okay,' however, the setup brought me to the Link Status tab and it still said (not listing blank fields) My MAC/Ethernet ID, my security (none) and my Connection: !!Disconnected!!? I have never really used Network settings, so can someone tell me what they should be set to? My options are normal (but in the Show dropdown, there is something called Ethernet Adapter(en1). Is that even how to fix the problem?

try exiting the netgear app down in the lower rt hand corner of your desktop by right clicking and hit exit, and use only the windows network sharing and connections to connect to one of the networks that you find.. hope that helps!! but have to say the i have owned 2 or 3 netgear wireless adapters including the model u have and they work ok but wear out fast. try the white one model WN111 v2 I'm using it now and it has been best so far!

Start by making sure that in Internet Options>Connections the LAN is set to automatically detect a connection, and you're not choosing the dial up connection.
Without knowing your OS or IE version, it's hard to give you a lot of detail, but try using this troubleshooter, or this one.
For help working out the network issues, see here and the links provided there.

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


Hello,

There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Can't start my wireless modem


I think the problem is you cannot connect to the internet wirelessly using your laptop. The problem may lie in the modem or in the laptop itself.
First you need to isolate the problem. That is, determine if the laptop or your modem is the one that has the problem. If you can connect to the internet using your laptop in someone elses home network or free wifi outside your home, then the problem is your modem. BTW, modems don't have the capability to connect wireless devices to the internet. You need a wireless router. If what you have is a router, you're on the right track.
If your laptop can detect your home network, try connecting to it. If you're getting an error, call your Internet Service Provider. They should be able to help you fix the problem. Also, try updating the driver of your laptop's wireless card. You can do this by hardwiring your laptop onto your router, go to device manager, right click on your wireless card, then hit update driver. If nothing works, call your laptop's OEM.

Does the Sony PCG-C1MV have wireless capability and if so what do I need to purchase to use wireless capability? I have a cisco wireless modem in the house and have had no luck getting a signal.


Hello,
The Sony PCG-C1MV does not have built in wireless. If you would like to use this device on your wireless network you will need to purchase an adapter like this one:

My wireless light on my router doesn't light up, I been trying to access my router for internet for my phone and tried several things. Any ideas?


Easiest solution first: Unplug the router for 1 minute and plug it back in. See if it works.

Second solution: Log into the router via the built in ethernet switch and see if the wireless capability got switched off by itself (Rare, but it happens). Switch the wireless capability back on.

(BTW, is that the only light that does not light up?)

I bought a Canon MP610 printer in 2008. Does it have wireless capability? If so, how do I wirelessly print documents from my iPad?


See the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp610#Specifications

for specifications for your printer.

It says that it has a USB interface, and an optional BlueTooth interface.

If you have that optional interface, then you do have "wireless" capability, if your computer itself also has BlueTooth capability.

I've got an old Gateway desktop I need to connect to a wireless router for my job. I just bought a new, much stronger NetGear router and it still won't connect. I no longer have a laptop and I'm DESPERATE...


Unless you've installed a wireless card in your old desktop you will never connect wirelessly.
Desktops don't come equiped to do wireless communications. And an "old Gateway" surely does not have those capabilities.

You have 2 options
1) Purchase and install a wireless card for your Gateway

2) Use it hard wired... Purchase an "Ethernet cable" of sufficient length and plug it into one of the open ports on the back of the router and into the only place it will fit on the back of your computer

Hello,

You would need to purchase a wireless adaptor to add to your daughter's pc. Once installed alone with the drivers/software, you should have no problem getting her connected wireless.

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

Wireless capabilities


Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.
