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.

Good Morning, I just set up a Netgear WG111 802.11g Wireless Adapter on one of our laptops yesterday. The problem now is that it keeps loosing connection every few seconds. Can anyone help...


Hi,

If your Operating System in your laptop is windows 7,this is a known issue. You need to have the updated drivers on your netgear wireless adapter. If you are using windows vista or XP there should be no problem. Can you also provide me the model of your laptop?

Power supply only putting out 6 volts vs. needed 12v. Router sees that as a "loose wire". Looking for replacement power adaptor.


Hi, I want to tell you that if you are looking for the replacement for the power adapter you can call netgear and you can purchase netgear adapter from the customer support for netgear. And also you can buy any other power supply adapter which have the same power supply voltage and you can use it without having any problem.
