You might try looking for updated drivers for your Microsoft adapter. Older wireless adapters often do not support newer wireless security methods like WPA/WPA2, so if your router is set to use something besides WEP, that may be the answer.

If you're not using wireless security and you still see intermittent connection issues, I'd consider using a different wireless adapter. In my experience, Microsoft wireless adapters do not have the range other brands do.

Netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address


Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

Netgear usb adapter will not acquire ip address from router


Most laptops have a wireless card built in them and if you have one you should try using that instead and form past experiences USB adapters don't generally work on laptops in which case if you laptop has the slot for it you should buy a card like this http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/SuperGWirelessAdapters/WG511T.aspx

Netgear WG111 issue


The error you get from Windows about the digital signature is normal. This only means that windows hasn't tested and approved it. just as the Netgear guys will tell you, the wireless adapter is compatible and will work fine. When you get that message, you'll usually allow it or continue with the installation.

you can refer to this link for the system requirements of your Wireless adapter:
