Do you know for sure that the usb port is working properly? Plug in a flash drive or a mouse and see if it's detected. If not, it's the usb port. Try another port. If no usb ports work, post a comment and I'll give you some things to check.
If the usb port works:
Unplug the nic, go to device manager and expand network adapters. Plug in the usb nic. If it doesn't show up in device manager, or if no new hardware is detected, then it's probably dead. Plug it into another pc to confirm.
I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<"
yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)
The white or gray wire goes to MAIN and the black wire goes to AUX. For some reason no one can ever fully answer that question or they close the forum because it is old but when googled these questions still are valid and need to be available even today.
Driver problem. Go into control panel and delete the adapter drivers. Remove the wifi adapter Then re-boot. I suspect the BSD (blue screen of death) was a result of a driver problem. If you have another computer that you can get on the internet with, go to the manufacturer website and download a driver. If you can get one, install the driver BEFORE plugging in the device and wait for the install program to prompt you to plug in the device. If you can't download a new driver, try plugging in the device again and see what happens. You need to avoid the BSD.
Here is a link to the website where you can access the driver for your product. Along the left side of the page is a box labeled downloads. Click on the link for your exact version and you are all set.
