the ipad runs off the same wireless card ad the ipod touch. what is likely is that your d-link router only supports 802.11n and the ipad rns on 802.11b/g and therefore it is running at a different frequency. this router DOES work backwards and go 802.11b/g/n

You can push the reset button on the netgear router, which will put it back to factory settings. The default user will be admin, and password will be password. The you can reset the system. If you did not change your user name and password when you first installed the router, you might try that username and password first. The go into the setting and change what you need to.

Honestly, I never set mine up correctly and never set up a password, though I do have it on a secure network. If you are using Windows (which I assume you are) try this: Go to your computer that already has access to the network, go to the Control Panel (from the Start Menu), go to Network & Sharing Center, go to Manage Wireless Networks, double-click on your network name, then click on the security tab and there should be a check-box that says Show characters. This will give you the security key. Next, go to your guest computer, find your network and connect with the key. Once they are connected, you can manually control their access if you want. Hope it works for you.

It does broadcast wireless G so it should be compatible with your ethernet card, or wireless card.

But if you're seriously still running ME, you should at least upgrade to Windows XP, or Winows 7.

not sure if you got an answer to this but here goes: it should work wired to your pc. you must make sure your LAN adapter settings are set to allow the router dynamic IP capibility (default is set up correctly) Next is wireless, now that's a bit more tricky. Wirelss internet will work with your adapter, not the OS, so as long as you have a more recent wireles adapter you should be fine, I would not plan on using WEP encryption. it may cause problems with connectivity.

Why ?

I have 2 laptops. I use one of them to set up the internet access and wireless security and the second laptop to be used wirelessly. the second laptop got on the internet nicely. However, I tried to set up the first laptop for it to be wireless too but somehow it did not work. It can only access internet when wired. Any help or suggestion?

Make sure that the first laptop has a compatible wireless adapter and it is configured to log into the router with the settings that came with the router- wireless name (SSI) and the Network Key (password). Hope that helps.

If your 1st. laptop is set to act as the RADIUS server then obviously it defeats the purpose if you want it to be wireless too. Also, WPA2 is as secure as RADIUS. Don't understand why for 2 laptops ONLY you need RADIUS!!

Need more info. How are you trying to wirelessly connect the second laptop? Does it have an internal wireless adapter or external? Either type could be bad(not working)--you might try switching the first to be the wireless and the second to be hard-wired. Or a new external(USB) wireless adapter on the second.

But like I said. . .Need more info.

Well first off can your laptop see the router? If it cannot see your router in a WiFi search then you laptop cannot connect. I would make sure youre WiFi card is turned on and able to search for WiFi stations. Also check to make sure the laptop hardware is compatible with the router. Some older laptops have cards that may not have security compatible with a newer router. Without knowing more about the hardware on the laptop I can't suggest much else.

Most routers will work with any cable company. The trick is with the cale company. Some require a router's MAC address to be manually entered associated with your account. So you may just have to call them with that information. Its on the bottom of the router or on the box. Others like Comcast which I use simple record this information automatically when the router boots and sets up with modem for the first time. Usually your cable companies help site can tell you how to replace your router and set it up.

Yes, I've used this router many times with Charter in Asheville, NC. It is pretty much plug and play.

If you have any problems, follow these steps:

1. Disconnect and turn off the Charter cable modem.
2. Turn off the PC and Netgear router.
3. Reconnect/power on the Charter cable modem. Wait one minute.
4. Turn on the Netgear router. Wait one minute.
5. Turn on the PC.
