I have been browsing around the forums for an answer to my problem and their are similar queries but as I didn't find anything specific to Netgear I thought I'd post here first and ask for help.
My problem is this:
I have a NETGEAR WG111T modem which is working fine using a local area connection to a pc and also when using wireless (my laptop). However, I have a pc set up running MCE media centre which has been using an ethernet cable - I don't really understand the ethernet concept to be honest but what I do know is the connection speed through the ethernet cable is SLOW......and so I want to switch the media centre computer onto a wireless connection.
I have added the MCE address to the accepted users list in the modem and have put in the WEP key etc so that the media centre pc is connected - however, all I get is a "limited or no connectivity" message. I have tried the "repair" button but get a message saying that the IP address cannot be renewed.
When looking at the network connection details I have a physical address, an IP address and a subnet mask - but the default gateway, DNS server and WNS server lines are all blank.
We've had problems with this before and I'm at a loss what to try next. Can anyone help?
