Installed a wireless usb adapter to an old computer running windows 98
After having installed a wireless usb adapter (NetGear) to an old computer running windows 98 all seemed to go well until I opened the only browser on the machine IE. It will not connect and I cannot figure out why. I am running a netgear wireless on another computer in another room.

The Netgear Wireless USB adapter should be connected to your Avertec N1200 laptop to act as a wireless antenna. The driver for your Netgear Wireless Adapter should also be installed on your laptop. Once installed, click on the Windows Orb button on the lower left corner of your screen and go to All Programs. Look for the installed program for your Netgear Wireless Adapter to open up the wireless utility of your wireless adapter. That's where you should connect the wireless connection and not on Windows Wireless Manager.

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:
•Opening the Control Panel The Windows Control Panel can be opened by: Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista) - OR - Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager
•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'
The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

I would take the dynex back to the store. I have dynex and a brand new netgear router.Netgear is awesome! Wife has netgear and hers is working fine and she is running vista! Im running dynex and nothing but problems so easy fix is replace with netgear. Goodluck kingelviss
-- try to install the adapter to a diff slot/ port
-- try to uninstall the driver and use updated driver downloaded from the netgear website to reinstall the driver
-- unistall old driver or other adapter on the computer to avoid driver conflict
This is a driver problem, it may be windows generic driver that has installed; so if you have already installed the software, uninstall it and remove the adapter.
Restart the pc, then insert the cd driver, but don't let it autorun, then re connect adapter and this time when it asks for the driver point windows to look on the cdrom for it instead of allowing the cd to run the installation.
