  1. You mean your wireless adapter cannot detect a netgear router.

    Connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable.

    See the literature which came with your router for how to access the user setup screens in the router.

    Once in go to wireless security and review or renew the wireless security type and password. WPA PSK TKIP is the most common security type in use. Make a note of the SSID or change it to one of your invention. Check that broadcast SSID is enabled.

    Go to wireless mode and ensure that it's set to a protocol matching your computer's wireless adapter (mixed mode is a safe bet).

    Disconnect ethernet cable.

    Check that wireless LED on router is lit.

    Go to the computer's wireless networking setup screen and see if you can detect the router's SSID (wireless call sign). Select that network.

    Apply the wireless security type and password to the computer's wireless networking setup screen.
