Up until now I have had a successful wireless setup, using a Netgear DG834GT Modem/router on the main computer. This main computer is conected with a cable to the modem/router, and a second PC is also connected directly to the modem/router. Laptop 1, is connected via a Netgear 108 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter Version 1.1. WG111T ) This set up is working fine ( including AOL internet)
Here comes the problem: I have just got a new laptop (2) and the above Adapter from laptop 1 works fine including AOL. BUT of course I needed to purchase a new adapter to network both laptops. For the new laptop I have got a : Netgear 108 Mbps wireless USB 2.2 Adapter version 1.3 (WG111T ) This does not work on any of the laptops. When I scan for my network, although it finds it, it cannot connect, and comes up with 1 Mbps. All computers and laptops are XP home SP2. I have checked and double checked countless times the SIDD and WEP Any help would be very much appreciated Thanks
Thanks dmso5 I'vr tried both 54 and 108, also tried thr 11b and 11g settings. Have also tried the netgear wizard and xp wizard. Exchanged the dongle for a new one yesterday and it made no diference. I have also been on the netgear helpline and on advise downloaded the latest driver. All to no avail. When using the xp wizard it tells me that the network is out of range (when I'm actualy right next to the router)allthough it does find it.
What Channel number are you using for your Netgear Router? You might like to try 1 then 6 then 10.
Running the XP WiFi Wizard with the Netgear wizard installed might be causing a problem. I had to completely remove the Netgear Utility from my laptop before my USB dongle would work through the XP WiFi Utility.
