Netgear adapter for my laptop causing problems

It is telling me that if I continue using my netgear adapter that it will cause operating problems because windows doesn't recognize it(or something along those lines) What am I missing, I've used netgear for years and years on my compaq laptop with no problems.

    Ya, the adapter is working but it just tells me that it's going to cause damage. I'll try going to netgear's website and see if there are any updates to help detect the signature. Thanks

    Most likely your Laptop's Operating System did not detect the adapter's signature and therefore cannot confirm that the drivers installed for the device are actually meant for the device.

    Is the adapter working or are you trying to install it?

This is just a warning from the Operating system. You need not to worry about this. Just click "Continue Anyways"...for the driver to be setup properly.
Also, this is all about Microsoft proprietary driver signing ....no big deal at all.

Netgear WG111 doesn't see D-Link DIR-655 wireless network


Hi Joe,

I would suggest you to change the wireless channel on the Dlink and use the channel on which WG111 will scan and connect to your network. Also, plese make sure to use the security encryption on the DLINK to WEP or WPA only. Using higher security like WPA2 will cause issues with this adapter.

Anand

4)There is no driver support for the Operating system.
Symptoms:
1)LED will not light up on the adapter.
2)Found New Hardware Wizard does not come up.
Resolutions:
1) Make sure you meet the minimum system requirements for the adapter and have the latest updates on the computer.

Change channel router netgear for windows vista laptop for


It is hard to say without the netgear model and version, yet the concept is the same, open your web browser, type the ip address of the netgear in the address bar (you will need a password), then look for a menu regarding wireless or wlan or advance wireless configuration, and there you will see an option about channel selecction, just change it to match your laptop channel.

good luck.
