Question about NetGear WN111 (DHWN111100NAS) Pre-802.11n Wireless Adapter

Netgear wn111v2 wireless network adapter

The cd i have from it wont install the software properly, gets to near the end of install and something about windows visual c+++ 2005 comes up and it says unable to install please try at another time.

However it still allows me to search for wireless internet clicking the button next to the clock in bottom right of screen. My network comes up fine and is usually 3/4 bars out of 5, i click to join the network and enter my password, occasionally it will let me join for 30 seconds then disconnect and other times it will not let me join at all, when it rarely connects for the 30 seconds the internet speed is slow. I have 50mb internet with virgin media and a netgear wireless router which i know works fine because i am able to use the laptop anywhere around the house with no problem.

I am using the network adapter on my desktop and really need it to work so i can get on with some work.

I wasnt sure if the issue is because i couldnt install the software for the network adapter and i dont know if its inteference(theres an immersion heater in the way). If there is inteference would 3/4 bars out of 5 always come up when searching for networks? My pc is a dell i bought about fortnight ago and runs on windows vista

Netgear WN111v2 Adapter disconnected


Is the Netgear Wi-Fi Management software installed on the computer? If it is, you may have a conflict between Window's built in Wi-Fi Manager and the Netgear Wi-Fi Manager. If it isn't, you may need to install it.
Assuming it isn't, there's links to download the software at the Netgear Global Download Center.

I would default to the most current version, if you're running Windows XP, you may need to install the v2.1, however, I would assume the v3.1 would be backward compatible with XP.
Install the software and follow the prompts that will guide you through the installation/setup.
Now, if the software is already installed, you need to find the program and configure it through that avenue. If that does not fix the issue, you should uninstall the Netgear software, remove the Wi-Fi adapter and reboot the computer. After it completely boots back up, you should either plug in the Wi-Fi adapter, let Windows recognize it and install the drivers, (they should still be in the system even after you uninstalled the software). Once Windows successfully locates and installs the drivers, reboot the computer again, (no need to remove the adapter). Once Windows completely loads again, open Start, Control Panel, and System. On the resulting window, click the hardware tab at the top then click the "Hardware Manager" button in the middle about 1/3 down the window. Click the "+" next to "Network Adapters" and verify that your WN111v2 is indeed installed.
Assuming it is at this point, close out everything but the Control Panel and open "Network Connections". Find the wireless adapter there, (may be listed as "wireless connection2" depending on how many times it's been installed). Right click on the wireless device and select "Show Available Wireless Networks"
