SOURCE: Problem with Widows Vista and Internet Connection

In this case you have to get your router reset to default settings and then set it up once again and also setting upa new wireless network with a different channel because the issue you're facing is because of channel selection.

What are you trying to connect your USB wireless device to?
Is it to a wireless hot spot?
or to a Wireless Access Point/Router?
When you find a connection, what is the signal strength?
I assume you have configured your Access Point correctly as well as making it secure. You should connect a computer to the Access Point using a network 10BaseT cable to check the Access Point configuration, especially the wireless configuration.

If you are trying to connect to a wireless Access Point and you have a weak signal, move your computer closer to the Access Point or move the Access Point to a better and higher location to give you a better wireless coverage. Note, walls can affect the wireless signals between the Access Point and the wireless network card and wireless USB device, especially reinforced concrete walls.

SOURCE: i have had problems with streaming video during

Doing my best to give you a correct solution and understanding
Issue : delays in streaming video
Environment :
ISP : Bellsouth
Router : wireless WRT150N
Solution :
"Downside to streaming"
Traffic jams.
Internet isn't a direct pipeline from the source to you. Streamed content passes through many other computers on its way to your computer via your ISP. If any one of them is carrying too much other traffic, the streamed content may be interrupted and pause. Streamed content is "buffered" to help avoid this, but sometimes it's unavoidable.
(test the downstream and upstream speed and alose test the download )
(Checked deleting the temporary files and folders)
(Checked firewall and Anti virus)
A slow computer :
if you have too many applications open, it could slow down your media streaming. If you notice things are sluggish, close all unnecessary applications and windows running on your computer. Just keep your Web browser and your media player open.
Noisy phone lines.
phone line that isn't free of noise (humming, crackling), that's not good for streaming (or Web browsing). Disconnect any phones that cause a buzz or hum.

Everytime i switch my computer off i need to reload my netgear wna1100 cd to get my computer to connect to router,i am now on connection number 4

hello the cd is for installing the password and other setting on to your router. but you don't need any cd after setting up the router if your router have wifi it is good to use wireless. You can buy cheap new router on ebay if you think this is a problem for you.

Netgear wireless router: WNA3400 Netgear wireless USB adapter: WNA1100 Can get it to connect at 150 mbs but after a few minutes it always goes back to 65 mbs. Thanks.

It seems that your network is getting wireless interference and that is the reason why the adapter is dropping the connection to a lower speed. Please go ahead and change the wireless channel on the wireless router to resolve the issue.

Please revert for any further clarification.

This could be a compatibility problem between the router and the adapter but 9 times out of 10 it is a security problem. Sometimes if you drop down to WEP security it will work and sometimes you need to enter the hex code rather than the passphrase. If that doesn't work try to connect without security, if that works experiment with different security settings. If it doesn't work try and get the latest driver for the adapter to see if that helps.

Netgear wirless - installed on toshiba satellite a45 - S151 will not connect to internet router = comcast - linksys also causes conflict with connection of other wireless computer

Presumably, you have configured your wireless router:
* SSID (your "network name")
* encryption-level ('WPA' or higher security)
* password for your network

With that information, any wireless device (iPod Touch, iPhone, NetGear wireless adapter) should be able to connect to your wireless router.

> conflict with connection

Exactly what error-message are you getting?

Try to update the driver manually

go to your device manager and go to "network adapters". if you see the adapter and it says that it is working fine, just try to connect manualy to the network.

If you see "network controller" under other devices. right click on network controller and click update driver. select manualy update the driver. browser for the drivers inside the disk and install it into your computer. after that, you'll be able to connect to the wireless network.
