Netgear WG511v2 end of life shake down?Dwa-652 130 mbps?xfinity wifi?

Downloaded v3.2. Unzip all files. Install drivers, then connect to infrastructure and use passphrase to connect after inserted the WG511v2 pc-card

Everything went smoothly. No end of life problems, connected at 54 mbps(maximum speed)..

With WG511v1 wifi pc-card using drivers v300 can not get the correct ip address from RCN. No data from internet even though it is connected to an ip address using paraphrase in advanced security. It maybe the software can only use wpa2-psk not aes. WG511v1 does not work with drivers v3.2.. So, WG511v1 can only work with some network security not cableTV ARRS cable modems(802.11ac).

Netgear WG511v1 is also 54 mbps /g wifi. Except the security codes do not allow wpa2-aes.

Probably just throw it away along with orinoco wifi cards. End of life means software will not be updated.

On ebay, WG511 is about $5.00. v2.

WG511T is super G can go up to $10. Super /g is only good for private wifi network not cableTV internet network(1-2 mBps speed).

No WG511v1 offered?

Install wg511v2 uses wpa2-psk(aes) can run into not getting ip address. Then you have to reinstall the driver. It removes the previous drivers and reinstall. Then everything works.

Dink dwa-642 and e-home eh-101 wifi can not be installed on the same computer. the drivers will overrun each other.

DWA-652 has a new driver(30MB). Works very fast during booting.

To make sure wifi does not fail because of hardware, you need a backup pc-card. You could use the same make and model or another one preinstalled, just insert the second wifi card to replace the first one, but drivers can not be in conflict and spoil both drivers.

Re: Netgear WG511v2 end of life shake down?Dwa-652 130 mbps?xfinity wifi?

Netgear wg511v1 is not usable because of encryption only good for wep or wpa rsk. It can not handle wpa2 aes which is used more often today. Like orinoco wifi cards, wg511 is obsolete and might as well be thrown away.

This is the misunderstanding of encryption 128 bit, 64 bits or less. The trend today is video encryption of 10 bits, in addition to 128 bit encryption. Then trust is having the phone, computer or laptop in your possession. Many of the lists of cookies had to be varified.

So, we now use WPA2 aes. On wep and wpa psk, RCN assign you an ip address that does not connect to any data because of wrong encryption.

2wire 802.11g 54 mbps wifi pc-card has driver twwgusb_2.3.1.3.exe 8.81 mB from cnet download. It needs to be shaken down with an install this driver(agere /b prism54pci) The card is broadcom 43xx, so the driver from agere does not work.

Same as Belkin v1315 F507010, which has broadcom chip and has to use broadcom b43 drivers..

These may work better with Linux drivers than XP drivers.

I am ready to throw out these wifi pcmcia cards same as orinoco wifi cards.

Netgear wg511v2 sometimes will not connect to internet but try to connect to router.

This need to have disconnect to repair connection to ip address. After that, it will work with RCN again.

Re: Netgear WG511v2 end of life shake down?Dwa-652 130 mbps?xfinity wifi?

Wpa2-psk(aes) requires at least WinXP sp2 to allow encryption on cable wifi. W2k needed wifi drivers that allows wpa-psk(aes)

Win95 using wl200 pcmcia card has to use access point no encryption to connect to internet.

This is perfectly ok if you use some wifi set-top box that does not require passphrase. Online banking use video 10 bit encryption to protect their customers in addition to 128 bit encryption on ascii codes.

Dlink dwa-652 has new drivers, connected to RCN at 130 mbps. DWA-642 only connects at 54 mbps. Both on Xp sp3 Os.

Its being dumped at $7 on ebay. You have to download the latest drivers from dlink.

But the extra speed is the new software by ARRS updated RCN cable plant recently.

These dead end wifi cards is connected to 802.11ac not /n anymore.

On linux ath9k drivers it works. If Kernel is 2.6. Ath9k is corrupted by kernel 3.x. On private wifi network router, it can run upto 300 mbps.

DWA-652 drivers connect first with router then connect to internet. You might have to repair the connection if it does not connect to internet just stopped at router.

If you are till not in wifi and use some of these new drivers, you must be still using linux desktop productivity offline.

Wifi is the future of computers. The drivers today boot into wifi connection, quickly on internet webpages.

And wifi /g 54 mbps pcmcia cards are all bargains, about $7 shipped to you.

Productivity today is in the bigdata webpages of your personal interest.

What is good usable wifi speed?

54 mbps is about 0.5 mBps, which can download software and movies fast enough, using /g wifi

/n wifi can do 130 mbps.

PCs have to use wifi now a days to be useful.

Dialup modems are too slow to even connect to most websites.

Wifi drivers need wpa2-aes for passphrase connection, and preferable aoto connect during boot all in the drivers to get on internet within 2 minutes after you turn on the computer.

Then you can take advantage of bigdata webpage downloads.

If you have cable wifi router or set-top box by ARRS in your home, you probably got upgraded software to have the new Xfinity wifi(unencrypted) channel installed. Comcast is almost ready to offer free trial or paid wifi service.

You just click on the wifi icon in the tray to view wifi channels available and Xfinity will be there, then just connect to see what comcast will offer.

This is exciting technology advancement for internet data transmission. I own ARRS stock.
