Default wnr2000 and connection

I have a usb WG511v2 key set up to take advantage of the higher speed of the router. The key works fine, no problems getting on the internet. However, I cannot connect anything else to the router. 2 laptops, (wireless cards) and one desktop (wired) all give the same error message. "limited or no connectivity". The key is set up as an infrastructure. What can I do to resolve this?

try to check if you set static IP addresses on the computers that say limited or no connectivity. it is wierd that your desktop that is wired to the router is saying that knowing that the laptop with the WG511 works on the internet with your router wirelessly. if you have a firewall installed on your computers, make sure it does not block the local network provided by the router.

on both of the laptops, the firewall is disabled. the tcp/ip is set to automatic. I have gone to "wireless access card list" and one of the laptops MAC address shows, but when I add it, it does not show on the attached devices screen.

I cannot even get a wired connection to work, only the usb key. it is the only device I see under attached devices.

I have wep enabled. the 2 laptops have recognized the router. What else can I try?

please go back to original post, key is the usb WG511v2. It is the only thing that will connect to the router, not any wireless cards, or my desktop, when plugged into the router.

All ‘511 devices shown here are PC cards, not USB adaptors, but regardless I’ve never seen these things referred to as a ‘Key’ before so your terminology has confused the issue;

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/list/p3/43

The only reason I can think of why just one adaptor (wired or wireless) is able to connect to the router is that the modem is connected to one of the router LAN ports instead of the WAN (Internet) port.

On the PC that works if you type ipconfig /all at a Command Prompt (Start, All Programs, Accessories) while it is communicating with the router do you see a public or private IP allocated to the PC (public would be 74.77.xxx.yyy and private would be 192.168.x.y)?

try use correct term.

Key can say by many people for encryption key

wireless adapter, adapter, USB stick are better wording..
