I have experienced trouble with my network connection - I cannot establish a connection too my wireless ADSL router (NetGear DG834G) using the NetGear WG111v2 USB 2.0 adapter.
The ethernet connected PC is assigned 192.168.0.2 and the router is set too 192.168.0.1 - subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The second computer - my dads, is being configured to connect over wireless using the afore mentioned adpater.
I have checked the router configuration and believe that is as needs be for a wireless connection to be made. I somewhat managed to confirm this when I got the network broadcast name on my dads pc.
Firmware Version V3.01.25
ADSL Firmware Version 4.01.02.00
Modem Status Connected
DownStream Connection Speed 3296 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 576 kbps
Name (SSID) RICHMOND01
Wireless AP Enabled
Broadcast Name Enabled
The router firmware has been updated too the latest version as I have also done for the USB adapter. I have started receiving message "Media disconnected" when I run ipconfig /all command on my dads pc. After re-installing the drivers and still receiving the same message I restored the system too before I had first installed the adapter. The auto-detect of the adapter come on - install the driver and I still get the same message. What seems strange is that the adapter still seems to function and I can use the XP wireless network detection and see the wireless network but cannot establish a connection.
The only time that I did manage to establish a connection I could not ping my pc or the router. I have tried assigning the following values too the USB adapter;
Primary DNS 192.168.0.1
and the same result.
I am now at a total loss and cannot seem to resolve my problem.
Please please help - my belief is it is probably something quite simple that I am missing but after three days and various different approaches I can see no resolution.
