      Connection help

      Hey i need some help connecting another pc to my router (DG834GT). ive been using a WG111T wirless adaptor since i joined sky and its worked fine but ive built a new pc and using it with that pc so i gave my old pc to my dad but i carnt get it to find my router.
      we got another wirless adaptor (WG111v3) but it finds the router for a second and keeps scanning. It seems to have a hard time finding the router so i plugged my old wg111t to see if the signal was being block but it found it instantly and started to work. ive changed the wirless adaptor to make sure it wasnt a bad one and this new one still carnt find it so i could use some help as im sure im sure a new adaptor should work fine.

      Have you checked the Netgear site for updated drivers? I had a pig of a job trying to get mine to work with Vista, gave up in the end and I am using homeplugs with much better results and security.

      I read somewhere that this adapter has problems when the router wireless mode is set to Auto, try changing it to 'g' only and see if you have better luck.
