Question about Office Depot Ativa Wireless-G USB Network Adapter (AWGUA54)

1 Answer

File unseen I have a Ativa usb drive with 8GB. But this morning I can't seem to see any of the files. When I go to properties it shows that 4GB of storage is still free. How can I retreive my files. Is there a free software that you could recommend to recover those files.

Make sure the files didn't just accidentally get set as hidden. To check this open the folder or the drive in my computer and click on tools > Folder Options. Scroll down to view ALL files. Refresh My computer by pressing F5 and see if they are now there.

Secondly if they were deleted try this free software http://undelete-plus.com/ .

It works wonders.

Good Luck!

My 16 GB USB (ativa) is not able to read and I tried 2 lap tops and 3 computers so I know it is the usb. I am freaking out it has everything of mine on there. Is there a lock, can I retrieve information...


Hi conchieg,
From your description of the problem, it seems that the partition table of your Hard Disk Drive may be corrupt, or was damaged by using a low-level partition editing tool.However, it's very possible to recover any lost or damaged partitions using a tool called TestDisk on Linux to resolve your issue.By default, it's not installed, and you will have to install it yourself from the terminal(Access it via CTRL+ALT+T Key combination) and type in the command:
sudo apt-get install testdisk
You will be required to enter your administrator password, and you will also need an internet connection to download the package files.It's about 200 KB in size.
To launch the application with administrator privileges( Authentication needed since you will be modifying the partition tables of your HDD), open a terminal window as illustrated above or go to Applications>Accessories>Terminal and type in the command:
sudo testdisk
The application will run in the terminal window.Steps for recovering any lost partitions: 1.Choose create log file
2.Select which device to use(It may be /dev/sdb , but use the size of the HDD to guide you).
3.Under partition type,select INTEL/PC Partition

Choose 'Analyze' then 'Proceed' then select 'Search'. TestDisk should now scan your device for partitions (If it hasn't already discovered them). This may take a little while.

TestDisk should now list a series of partitions
Select the partitions you want to recover and select Apply. Note that for the changes to be effective, you must write the changes back to the partition table.
NB: If you are unsure of anything in this solution, please give your external hard disk drive to an experienced computer repair specialist and have him/her do the partition recovery for you. Don't risk data loss when it can be avoided.
Hope this solves your problem. Have a great time ahead.

Need UWA-BR100 drivers


Hello,

When I install de UWA-BR100 driver with the fix mentioned above it works but it does not show all wireless networks available. When I look at the hardware properties I see 802.11b Preamble and a mention of Adhoc 11n.

When I look at the properties of my other wireless adapter there is mention in the properties of: 802.11n 20 MHz, 802.11n, 802.11n modus, Adhoc Qos, Adhoc 802.11b/g. This adapter shows more available wireless networks then when I use the UWA-BR100. With the UWA-BR100 I can not see my own wireless network.

Does anyone has a solution for this problem?


Thanks

Sandra.

right Click on the wireless network connection
go to properties.
Under the wireless folder.
go to advanced.
Click on computer to computer adhoc networks only.

It should work then.
I am assuming you have wifi on your desktop.
Best case go out and buy a wireless router. It will be more secure.

Firmware Upgrade For Vista


That update is not for Vista but for your router, you need to log in to it as admin and find the firmware update option and give the bin file to it.
And I storngly suggest to not to try this via wireless connection, you can easily ruin your router that way, use rj45 ethernet cable during the update.

And for the obvious question about how to log in to it's admin menu easiest way to have a look in to it's documentation and there you should find a step by step guide with possibly some pictures.

Usb wireless


Go to Start > All programs (XP) and look for Ativa. There should be a "manager" or some type of program. Run it, And look for a tool that will change from "AP mode" to "station mode". Once it makes the change, the networks should pop up.

Cannot Install Ativa Drivers


Hi Mark,

apparently you are not the only one having problems installing that device. See here.

So my suggestion would be to download the driver from here.
(90Mb??? - can that thing make coffee too?. Oh I see...they included Internet Explorer 6 in that package...Jeez..).

I just assume that you're running Win XP, but the procedure for Vista is similar.

Unzip the file.

Important: Do NOT use their setup.exe!

Plug in the USB adapter and let Windows try to install it. When it can't find the driver, point to the directory, where you unzipped the files. The file you're looking for is called "ODWGU.inf".
If Windows installs some driver which might not work, go into the Device Manager and update the driver from there.

If you have problems uninstalling their software, try "Revo Uninstaller". This software has a "Hunter Mode", that will help to uninstall even the most obnoxious software. I use it all the time, because it also removes all the **** that Windows uninstallers leave behind.

Ideally you have a clean machine to start from, so you might want to begin with removing their software first.

Please let me know if this worked for you.
