Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.

Tips for a great answer:
Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless
"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
if this fails to fix the problem
try unplugging the usb wireless device
uninstall the netgear software in the add/remove programs in the control panel reboot and then reinstall the software then plug in the usb wireless adapter
hope this helps
