I have a brother who has a netgear router and it will not work right. I did an ipconfig and the default gateway states and I don't know what to do from there. The system doesn't recognize the wireless adapter at all. Is it trashed?

Hello geno368,

I'm confused as to you're having a problem with your systems wireless adapter or a problem connecting to the routers wireless? In either case, please do the following:

Check Device Manager
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Type devmgmt.msc
  • Click OK tab
  • Click the Device Manager button
  • Expand the Network Adapters group
What adapter do you see here? Do any have a red X? Do you have a Unknown or Other Devices group (Would have items with a yellow exclamation point infront of them)? What's in there if anything?

After that do a connection test for me:

Step 1 - Determine your Default Gateway and DNS Addresses:
  • Select Start
  • Click Run
  • Type cmd and click Ok
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands:
    • ipconfig /all
  • Make note of the Default Gateway and DNS Servers
Step 2 - Connectivity test:
  • Please type in the following commands into the cmd prompt:
    *Note: each ping will take approximately 10 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear*
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • route print >> C:\results.txt
    • ping >> C:\results.txt
    • ping DefaultGateway >> C:\results.txt
    • ping DNSServer1 >> C:\results.txt
    • ping DNSServer2 >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
