Try exiting the netgear app down in the lower rt hand corner of your desktop by right clicking and hit exit, and use only the windows network sharing and connections to connect to one of the networks that you find.. hope that helps!! but have to say the i have owned 2 or 3 netgear wireless adapters including the model u have and they work ok but wear out fast. try the white one model WN111 v2 I'm using it now and it has been best so far!

You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.

Cannot connect to wirless with adapter on new computer


Although this model appears to support Windows Vista according to the manual for it (ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WG111T_UM_04Feb07.pdf) the 64 bit version is not mentioned and, therefore, probably not supported. I'd take the wireless adapter back and find one that supports Vista 64 for certain. Some do.
