Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)
When TimeWarner installed our wireless network the put in a WG111v2 on one desktop computer. What happened is that the bottom part of the Netgear menu, which contains the connection speed, strength of signal etc., fragments into many parts all over the screen. For example, once I was trying to check off boxes and these annoying purple pieces would 'follow' my cursor and block what I was trying to read. When I disconnected the unit and restarted the computer there were no problems. I tried alot of actions on my computer to no avail. I finally bought a new Compaq desk top and the same unit works fine. Do you think it's some virus on my old computer or have you heard of this before? Thanks, Mark.
Hi Mark, I don't think it was a virus, it may have just been that the router wasn't compatible with your old PC. It could have been a driver issue also. Whenever you disconnect something that makes your PC malfunction, and then the PC works fine, it's almost definitely the device that you disconnected at fault. Personally I think you should have called the people that connected it to begin with, and have them fix or replace it. That is what you paid for and that's what you should get.
