Problems with netgear wireless router MR814v2 and wireless adapter MA111
Posted on 2004-10-20
I recently purchased a wireless netgear router and adapter so that i wouldnt have to have wires trailing all aver the house. The problem I'm having is trying to connect to the internet using the wireless feature. If a cable is connected to the router the internet can be accessed with n problems. However, when i try using the MA111 (v1.1) (again a netgear product) adapter the light simply flashes saying it cannot find any wireless networks in the house. The same is true when I try scanning for networks using the wireless connections under my connections ( i am running xp pro) and the bundled software that came with the adapter, no networks appear when i scan for them. At first I thought that walls may be affecting the signal, however I have tried it on the computer in the same room as the router and I still cannot find any network. Is there any quick way of testing this without haveing to buy another adapter??.
