How are you trying to connect? Software that came with the wireless card? Windows Zero Config?

Are you getting an error?

Do you have security setup on the router?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

then my d-Dlink modem model DSL-2320B
then a FR-54RTR wireless router from Frys.com
and my NETGEAR WG511T 108 wireless pc card

more on network: I have tried the network wizard but when I put in flash drive to include my pc it shows error message saying network adapter not installed or software for network adapter not installed.?? I have updated my drivers and even tried installing NETGEAR cd onto my pc but no change. :inlove:

According to the manual on the websote for Frys with this router wireless is not enabled by default. You will need to go into the router and set up the wireless before you can connect. Download the pdf manual from the website and follow the instructions.
