If you have re-installed windows then you will have to re-install your router etc - drivers, firmware, just like you did when you first got them. Your wireless network will have to be reconfigured as you are starting from scratch. You will probably have to set up your home network again.
I would suggest re-installing everything then post back if you have issues. As I don't have netgear products i cannot give any step by step instructions.
OK- I have seen other posts that looks to be similar in problem nature but the responses were a little too hard for me to follow. I will need more specific step by step instructions since I am not very well versed in the computer setups and configuration. Here's my problem.
I have a Netgear MA111 USB wireless adapter and a Netgear Router. For the past 1.5 years, I have had no problem getting internet connection worelessly on my Dell PC which has XP OS. The recently, I reloaded the XP since my computer was acting funny, using the CD-ROM Microsoft provides, and now, I cannot even any internet connection even though the wireless signal is strong.
I tried pinging 192.168.0.1 based on what I read in the other posts and it came back saying that destination host is unreacheable. I know my router and modem works because I am using it with no problem on my other laptop. This has to be just the PC or my USB adapter. But, since I checked the device manager and it says my USB adapter is working properly, I can only suspect that the configuration is out of whack right after my XP re-load.
Please give me some advise and help my giving me some step by step instruction since I am not very familiar with the computer settings and setups. Thanks in advance.
