Hi there,

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?

Take off all allowed users, all security and MAC addresses from the router and then connect the Media Center PC to it wirelessly, see what happens.
