Can A Netgear Wireless Usb Adapter Signal Read Off Of A Linksys Router Signal
Feb 9, 2012
I just bought a Netgear WNA3100 wireless usb adapter for my HP Win 7 64 bit laptop. I have been trying for 2 and half days to figure out why my speed is slow, why i don't have a good signal, and/ or if I do have a bit of a signal to my luck, why my signal comes and goes. I don't have internet at home at the moment because I am trying to save up to go to school. I am picking up a public business signal from a block away (which I have asked for permission to use), but I only am receiving not much of a signal with the Netgear usb wireless adapter.
I'm trying to get connected to wifi on my ds lite, but my university's wireless doesn't broadcast a wireless-B signal which is the only type a DS can connect to. Is it possible to use a router convert the school's wifi and broadcast a wireless B signal for myself?
Was getting a very weak wireless signal from the router that is 2 rooms and a hallway away (40 ft.)... It was almost like dial-up used to be...Anyway, a friend of mine suggested getting Powerline Network Adapters, HowStuffWorks "How Power-line Networking Works"I spent the money for the kit, ($99 at Office Depot), and installed yesterday afternoon. Getting a great signal now. If you can't or prefer not to run ethernet cable, this is the next best thing...
I have a problem with my Dlink 1310 Wireless Router. For a while now it has been happening but it has finally gotten to the point where I am tired of it happening.Few things I have noticed or have done.1) Watched modem when this happens and never shows sign of droppage in internet2) Updated Firmware for router, and while itse data transfer rates, the problem still persists3) Usually when this happens I will click the network icon on mylaptop/desktop and will see that my router has disappeared from the list of available networks entirely, then returns a few moments later.
i own a rental property with 2 apartments right next to each other. the front unit allows the back unit to use their wifi via their router but the back gets a very weak signal or sometimes none at all. the units as i mentioned are literally right next to each other & only separated by a wall. the apartments are not huge, i dont know how far away the router is exactly but it cant be far. the entire building is only 1300 square feet.
i am using internet through a wireless wired connection which means on roof top i have got a WiFi antenna and from there a wire is connected to my laptop well my query is that i stay near to my college which grants us access to free internet but my laptop wifi or any other usb adapter is not capable of catching that wifi signal so i wanted to know is there any way that i can configure my wifi antenna to catch my college signal if no please help in getting a way so that i can connect through my college WiFi signal as my college WiFi gives great speed and the plan i am subscribed to is like shit i pay for 1mbps plan but i get max downloading speed upto 150kbps.
I have a Linksys WRT54G2 router right outside of my room and i only catch 2 bars of signal strength. all the other laptops in my household catch excellent signal strength and their range is way farther than where my laptop is from my router.However when i place the laptop right next to the router it receives excellent strength, but as i move away it starts to lose signal. Sometimes it would disconnect at a random time also. my laptop is a dell studio 1555 running on windows 7 and my wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1397 802. 11g Half Mini Card.I'm thinking its the wireless card but i purchased a dell mini running on xp with the same exact wireless card and had no problem with the signal strength.
I recently upgraded my wireless router from a D-link Di-614 to a Linksys e3000. A buddy of mine recommended it saying he didnt have wifi issues from the top of his house all the way to the basement. I live in a bungalo home, and so the router is on one side of the house, and my Desk and macbook pro is on the otherside. Im getting 4 bars in windows 7, its showing good connectivity, but its constantly disconnecting, even when its stable, its running very slow. When im close to the router is works perfect. I design for a living and am constantly transferring files to clients. So this has become a problem, Im constantly having to unplug my laptop and walk over to the router to send/recieve large files. Any suggestion on what i can do? Could there be something wrong with the router or my laptop ?
I have new Acer Aspire 5739G laptop and fresh Windows 7 on it.
The wireless card is Intel WiFi Link 5100.
The problem is that wireless works only in short distance with access point - max distance is about 5 meters.
In that distance everything works fine.
But if I go farther or to another room it disconnects.
With other laptops all works fine even on very large distance.
I tried such things (nothing helped): * uninstall, reinstall or update drivers * install newest drivers from Acer site * install newest drivers from Intel site * tested with xp & vista drivers * on network connection properties unchecked all things except tcp/ip v4 protocol (microsoft networking,sharing, link layer topology,QoS, TCP/IP v6 ..) * disabled homegroup * on adapter properties changed signal frequencies (1,6,11), * on adapter properties changed standard type to work with: 802.11 b or g * on adapter properties changed signal to MAX, don't use power saving * disabled Internet security, firewall * Changed access point signal broadcasting with no encryption or wpa * it disconnects from another access point the same way (problem with system not wifi AP)
Maybe something forgot to say, but there was few hours of testing and can't fix it .
i just built a new Windows 7 Machine and i installed x64 bit for the first time and this is my main computer with a WRT54GL Router hooked up and i moved my old machine out to my living room, but when i try to connect to it wirelessley the x86 wont even see my network at all, i have SSID broadcast on, the only way it will see it is if i disable security and WPA2 then it shows up but as soon as i put the security back on it wont connect/see it at all. Can anyone help me i have no idea whats going on, my previous machine i had out in my living room was windows xp and it could connect to my x86 win 7 fine, but now i cannot get it to work, i even bought a new wireless usb adapter to try and it still wont see it unless i unencrypt it.
I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. And an atheros AR5B95 wireless network adaptor.Two weeks ago I discovered rootkit 0access on my computer, and after much hassle, performed a factory restore to fix the situation. Since then my computer has been mostly unable to detect wireless connections. I say mostly because upon occassion it will see my wifi connection, but be unable to connect to it, and it will soon drop seeing the connection moments after anyway. I performed a hard reset of my modem with at&t customer service, and walked through every possibility that it could be a modem issue. This was further proven by an additional laptop having no issue with the wifi connection, and that my laptop is having this problem with every wifi connection. [code]
New Windows 7 user and I am connected to the internet via the wireless network so it is definitely connected and still fast, however I see an orange asterisk on the wireless icon instead of the usual signal strength.
I have a Netgear DGNB2100 Wireless N router. It is connected to an old PC via Ethernet cable. That connection works.
While downloading a 64 bit driver to use for the USB adapter for my PC, I connected my laptop to the wireless network with the laptops WiFi card (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG), and used the internet for about ten minutes.
I then configured the USB adapter for my PC, after disconnecting the laptop.
My laptop will detect the network, but when I put in the password, I get a message saying Network Security Key Mismatch, and am prompted to type the key in again.
I have also tried pressing the WPS button on the router instead of typing in the password with no luck.
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5920, with the aforementioned Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card, and it is running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
I am using a netgear DG834GT router however having just bought a computer running on windows 7 I am having real connectivity problems, other laptops in the household are on XP and have no problem, is there an answer out there?
I recently bypassed my previous BSOD issue by simply replacing my HDD with a SSD and doing a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit Pro.
Where the computer is currently located, I need to run wireless internet. To do this, I have used a NetGear wireless adapter "WNDA3100v2". It's a nice adapter, and it's worked fine for about 2 years, including immediately prior to adding my new SSD.
So I fire up my fresh copy of windows, and install my critical software. Once all of that is sorted, I go to install the drivers from the CD. I insert the USB adapter, and click next.
As soon as the adapter is inserted, Windows begins searching for a driver which fails. On the same instant that I click next, the proprietary software for the device says "detecting". This stays this way infinitely it seems, and never detects the device. If I just yank the adapter out, it will say "failed to detect", so this leads me to believe it is at least aware that it's there?
I tried to backdoor it, and ran a wired connection through my window, down the outside of the house, to my router LOL, and forced Windows to search for it's own updated driver. On most occasions, it just says "failed", but I was able to get it to find one last night, and it downloaded to 100% before it just hung up for a while, and then "failed".
I recently purchased a new desktop and it came with windows 7. I am having trouble hooking up my router, it will not allow me to access the Internet through the router. I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 (I know it's a dinosaur but I've never had issues before) The router will not even install. Upon further investigation I've discovered that my problem may lie with Windows 7.
I have read a number of other posts (here and elsewhere) about getting a WG111 to work with Windows 7 on my new computer and haven't had any success. Can someone help by providing click-by-click directions? I'm not a complete novice but clearly not clever enough to follow the directions previously posted. My kids are completely frustrated with having a new machine but being able to get online.
I've upgraded my PC to Windows 7 Home Premium today (from Win XP Pro) and now the wireless network adapter does not work.
The adapter is a Netgear WG331 v1. I've tried downloading the drivers from the Netgear site - both those for the v1 and the newer drivers for the v3 and neither have fixed the issue.
I've used the Win 7 troubleshoot feature to install this driver (it is meant to be included within Win 7) but this does not work either.
I've also tried plugging the ethernet cable that normally goes directly into the back of my Netgear router into the PC, in order to provide Win 7 with internet access. However, this has not worked, with the connection apparently not recognised by the computer. I've tried to update the drivers for my PC's motherboard to remedy this, but have been unable to find any that are compatible with this version of Windows. The motherboard is MSI n1996.
Windows 7 troubleshooter shows missing drivers for the following: Multimedia Audio Controller (two of these), PCI Input Device, Ethernet Controller.
What I'm banking on is that an internet connection will enable Win 7 to locate drivers for all of these, but I am currently unable to make this happen. The internet connection is running fine and the wireless router is broadcasting the signal properly (I am accessing it right now via my laptop).
I've been using windows 7 32 bit for quite awhile now. But i really want to use the 64 bit windows. However i face the problem that right after my wireless installation, i am unable to get windows to recognise my wireless adapter.
As such i cant install the driver and since i lack the internet, i am unable to run windows driver update, so i cant search for the driver online. any ideas how i can solve this problem other than buying a new wireless adapter? im using a linksys wireless- G, model No: WUSB54G, wireless adapter
I believed the hype, waited to buy a new computer until 7 came out. Been doing this since before there even WAS Windows, and it does it to me every time. Everything was supposed to work that worked with Vista, which was supposed to run everything that ran on XP, etc. - I got the computer, a Compaq desktop, got a Linksys wireless adapter to go with it. Wouldn't install. Wouldn't even recognize the dang thing was plugged in.
Called Linksys, talked to some woman in Indonesia who told me there was no driver for Windows 7 yet. Went back to BestBuy where I got the adapter, thinking they could help. Seems their geeks aren't any geekier than I am. Got a refund, bought a Belkin G family. At least the computer recognized that the Belkin is plugged in, and it knows there is a signal, but it refuses to connect.
That's weird. Good signal, knows it is a Motorola adapter, but will NOT connect! Re-installed it in compatibility mode. It just laughs at me. Seriously, can I go back to DOS? Barring that, is there anything else I can do besides wait for an adapter to ship with a driver that works on 7?
I recently upgraded to windows 7 professional, and now my network adapter does not work. I have a Linksys WMP54Gv4 wireless network adapter. I checked with Linksys and apparently they don't have windows 7 drivers yet. If anyone knows of any fixes or ways to get around this problem I would really appreciate it.
I have Windows 7 Pro installed on my PC, which uses a linksys wireless USB adapter for internet. I have the latest driver installed, but what happens is the driver won't be retained in the settings after I reboot it. The only way to keep this from happening is to hibernate the PC. Never had this problem before and it seems very odd to me since I don't see a reason for Windows to delete the driver.
