Hi,

I have just brought a Netgear WGR614 to use to connect ot the internet
wirelessly with my in-built card with the laptop.

However, i can not establish a connection. I can use the router to browse
the internet using the wires but the whole point was to do it wirelessly.

This is what i am presented with with the wireless connection screen:

As you can see, i can see the connection is there as the blue ring is around
the connection. However, to get it to do this i have to open up the connectin
and click on refresh. Then once done that is the screen i am presented with.
But i can not get the connection to move to the part above.

Any help or advice on how to do this and what to do??

Thanks,

Daniel

You may want to ask your questions of Netgear support. This newsgroup
supports Microsoft's Broadband Networking hardware and software.

This newsgroup is only for the Microsoft broadband networking hardware
not networking in general. I'd suggest either posting in a newsgroup
about the hardware you are using, a general networking newsgroup, or one
about the version of Windows you are running.

Sorry :( 

I did not know. I did however think it may be a problem with some settings
in windows and not jusyt the router. Windows seems to be picking the router
up but not connecting to it by wirelessly.

Your router may not be set to broadcast SSID -- and that's
why is not showing up (this is not a problem for many wifi
cards, anyway), or the wireless may be disabled on the
router. You probably need to verify the wireless
configuration on the router and/or on the properties button
on the dialog that you posted.

I would look on the router first, and disable WEP until
everything else is working. Then check the TCP/IP
properties for your wifi card (on etwork Connections) -- it
should be set to obtain a dynamic IP frim the "server."
Once you get the wireless network working add WEP.

Again, like everybody said, NetGear probably knows exactly
what to do. This newsgroups is about the MS wireless
adapters -- not even Windows. Sorry about that.
