I hope you can help me. Iv been racking my brains over this for the last few days but noone seems to be able to sort this!
The scenario is this, im renting with 3 other friends. We have a belkin wireless G router with a connection that is not encrypeted or anything. All of our computers (inc my laptop with netgear pcmcia card) can connect to it perfectly.
I recently bought a desktop and tried using this adapter: NETGEAR WG11154MBPS WIRELESS USB 2.0 ADAPTER
I have a strong signal and can ping the router and all but one of the other computers. (The only computer i cannot connect to is my friends desktop who is wired directly to the router).
So far so good.
Only problem is that i cant access the internet for some reason! the wierd thing is that i installed the same adapter on my latop and successfully got internet connection!
Iv made sure mac filters is off.
Iv tried disabling all firewall - windows and norton internet security but still dont work.
At best i get the google home page. All other websites times out.
Id really appreciate if you could please help me. Before buying this adapter i tried the belkin usb one but i had the same problem. I thought it might have been the adapter so had it exchanged for this netgear one mentioned above.
For software, im using netgears own wireless utility. - it worked fine on my laptop!
Im really confused! Please please help
