My netgear wireless-n150 USB adapter wna1100 can't detect adapter.

First determine that the USB port isn't dead. Do other things work in that USB port? If the answer is yes we know it's not the port. Have you tried another USP port? If it doesn't work in another port (or on another computer's USB port) then it's the adapter itself.

Adapters can go bad. USB ports usually work and don't go out. The exception is that many laptops that come with several USB ports sometimes have one (or more) that never did work.

Try it on another computer. This is one last step to determine if the adapter itself is dead and that it isn't something on/with your computer.

It also could be that the computer has the old USB 1 port and the adapter needs USB 2. (USB 1 was slower).

I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.

Taking forever to just connect to router

Try to connect the USB adapter to a different USB port on the back of your computer. Make sure the adapter is plugged in to the back of your PC not to the front.

Is my problem the internet signal or the wireless router?


If you have been using this router/laptop for 3 years successfully and then all of a sudden it does not work, you may attempt to try an external USB wireless adapter. Does your T30 have 802.11b connectivity built in? It is not unusual for these to go out. Before you buy one check first to see if you can still access wirelessly at other hotspots? Or does the problem follow you around? If you can successfully connect at other hotspots then this is not the problem and it may very well be your router. Is there any way you can get a substitute rouer to test with before you purchace one? A friend maybe? It is probably one of these 2 issues. If you find your wireless is out on the laptop and you go to purchace a USB wireless adapter, go for a Linksys and make sure it is at least wireless "g" or "n" and not "b". And if you do not have enough USB ports then you may want the flat wireless card adapter that plugs in to the PCMCIA slot on the laptop. This can be Linksys also - I use this one (flat card) - "Wireless G Notebook adapter with SRX" Model Number WPC54GX. It is great and has speed boost. If your built in wireless on the laptop is bad, then any of these external adapters you choose to use will simply take over the wireless reception. Good Luck.

Can't re-install 2Wire USB Wireless adapter

If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at and install it.

Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4 shuts down desktops with gigafast g wireless adapters

Make sure that the computers in error are set to DHCP for the TCP/IP properties. For the computers to see each other, the workgroup has to be the same on all of them. Each computer must have its own unique name.

For computers to be able to access each other, the computer's firewall has to be set to allow, or be turned off. The disk drives have to be set to share.

The router should have a NAT firewall. It should be turned on by default. As long as the NAT is turned on, it is safe to have the computer's firewall turned off and still be connected to the net.
