New Router will not conect to wireless card

So I used to own an old Netgear router. It's white and has the blue lights in the middle. It stopped working so we bought another Netgear. It is the Netgear N300 wireless router. Now for some reason, my bedroom computer network card will not connect to the new router in my game room. My network card is a Zonet ZEW1642. I know that it will work because the range is a lot better on the new one. I use the windows network manager and the Ralink manager (the one that came with it) and ity still wont work. There's two things that happen:

1. Both network managers don't find it at all

2. It does find it, connects but instantly drops.


When it does connect, I right click the small computer at the bottom (Im on XP) and click status. Then I click status again on the screen that pops up. It says:

Invalid IP address

(something) 0.0.0.0

(something) 0.0.0.0


Ive spent 3 hours trying to connect. Ive disabled windows firewall, Avira, and removed spybot s&d. NOTHING IT WORKING! :fou: :fou:

please, someone help me. Ive tried everything

  7. Okay, i installed the driver and both cards have drivers....What's next?
  8. oops sorry. We returned the router and got another one. I can connect to it, but it drops every so often. And when it does connect, it is extremely slow. I ran IPCONFIG/all anyway

  9. Okay, i ran the command prompt above. It is still unresponsive. I ordered another networking adapter to test to see if the old one is going out. My old one was a cheapie and I've had it for about 2 years
  10. Okay so still nothing with the new card either BUT windows diagnostic did say the DNS is messed up
  11. Hello Allen S - Please do what dadiggle suggest, since you bought a new router you need to set it up first before using it. You have a disc that came with the new router, insert it on the optical drive then follow the instructions.
  12. On a side note, I'm always amused that the cheap netgear routers always setup a Class A network, even though they couldn't handle half of a Class B pool. XD
