    WG111v2


    Hi there, ive recently purchased a netgear WG111 version two for my pc,
    which is running on Vista. the router that we have at home is a Linksys
    WRT54G.

    Now ive setup the drivers for the WG111v2 without a hitch, but when you
    have set it all up, including picking which network to join into and
    adding the passcodes the adapter cant seem to find the network.

    The little icon down in the tray is red and says scanning, i can wait
    for 15 minutes and it will still stay scanning, i mean if the adapter
    can see the network to know you have to enter the passcode how can it
    suddenly not see it anymore?

    This ones got me scratching my head/smashing pc

    any help would be really really appreciated, thanks in advance :)

    WEP of WPA? If WEP, be sure to enter all keys (router and PC) in *hex*,
    not characters! And if WEP, change to WPA -- WEP is too easily broken
    to be of any real value.

    If that doesn't help, turn off all security while troubleshooting.

    Any particular WG111v2 driver? See:
    <http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wg111v2.asp>
    and pick a number.

    Out of curiosity, which hardware version WRT54G? Also, firmware
    version? Some versions had problems with the DHCP server and Vista.

    With or without encryption? Try it without encryption. My guess(tm)
    is that you are doing that already and not getting a connection. This
    is beginning to sound familiar.

    Ah. The little red ball below the icon is a clue. That means that
    the wireless client manager is trying to get a DHCP address and
    failing. Welcome to Vista.

    Vista has numberous DHCP related bugs. See the list I posted at:
    <http://groups.google.com/group/alt.internet.wireless/msg/cd8d480583867ee3>
    for the necessary fixes.

    >This ones got me scratching my head/smashing pc


    That's why I always wear a hat. Scratching my head is accellerating
    baldness. Smashing the PC is great fun, but rarely yields a
    successful solution.

    >any help would be really really appreciated, thanks in advance :)


    Run:
    Start -> run -> cmd <enter>
    ipconfig
    If the IP address is something 192.168.xxx.xxx, it's working.
    If the IP address is 0.0.0.0, it's waiting for a DHCP address.
    It the IP address is 169.254.xxx.xxx, DHCP has given up.

    For Vista, if you can't find the MSDOS command icon or the run
    command, try:
    Right click on the Start button in the lower left of the screen.
    Select Properties.
    Select "traditional start menus" or something like that.
    Welcome back to an XP style start menu.

    I have similar problem in that everything appears to be fine however constantly states scanning, and icon at bottom is red. I have other wireless devices that connect to my router fine, and sometimes the box will turn green and this one will also however mostly (including at the moment) it will not!!

    the I.P states 00.00.00 but I am not too computer literate and really dont have a clue how to fix this! I an running windows xp not vista as above,

    Please can anyone help, it is driving me mad!!

    Fix the WG111v2 driver problem

    Hi

    It could also simply be a problem with the driver. At http://wg111v2-driver.blogspot.com/2...v2-driver.html there is a program that can find all the drivers installed in your Windows and update them by it self. It even finds missing drivers.
