Hi all,
I have a Netgear WG311T PCI Adapter and pick up about 9 different networks
with it. However I can only connect to the one G network of the bunch.
Signal strength is about the same for but generally low for each (45-56%) in
the Netgear Software. Any time I try to connect to any of the B APs I get
the "Wireless Network Unavailable" message. I have Auto-Config in Windows
turned off and the 802.11B in Netgear's "Advanced Settings" checked.

I have SP 1 but note SP 2 installed. I built an antenna out of a Pringles
can but the stock antenna or the external yield the same result except I
pick up a few more of them with the Yagi.

If anyone can tell me what the problem is or where to get more information
on what to do then I would appreciate it. TIA

I installed one the other day - exact same problem - it auto detected and
installed, found network, wouldn't connect.

My fix was easy - just run the software on the cd - say yes to everything
(so it uses Netgears Smart Configuration) - then it worked fine.

I've been using the Netgear software from the start and I have always had
the problem.
