Question about NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

The software for the netgear WG111v2 installs however when it gets to the point where it asks you to insert the adapter, once inserted into any of the 6 usb's the computer freezes (and the mouse). It says new hardware found wg111v2 in the bottom right hand side but then wont go any further with installation and just freezes. I have checked that the usb ports are 2.0 and they are. Any help please

    Does the disk-drive "activity" light start to flash, or stay on for a few minutes? If so, Windows is reading many configuration-files from your disk-drive, trying to find the correct one for your USB device. Give it a few minutes. Or, try the USB device in some other computer, to compare the elapsed-time between "new hardware detected" and "device is ready to use".

HI,

It seems to be an issue with the security software on your computer. Disable antivirus and firewalls on the computer and then retry the installation.

To isolate the issue better, please try to install the adapter on another computer.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

The blue light on my wg111v2 in not flashing. is it because i did a system recovery on my pc with the usb plugged in ?


You will need to install the drivers for the wireless adaptor. The flashing blue light simply indicates that there is activity (communications) with a wireless access point.
You can find the drivers for it here;

A good router to get with these would be a netgear WPN824 router. This is probably the best solution for you and has plenty of power. With it/ you will get an installation CD to help you. For further help with the installation, simply send me a message.

Netgear 108 wireless usb adaptor


This is a driver problem, it may be windows generic driver that has installed; so if you have already installed the software, uninstall it and remove the adapter. Restart the pc, then insert the cd driver, but don't let it autorun, then re connect adapter and this time when it asks for the driver point windows to look on the cdrom for it instead of allowing the cd to run the installation.
