    What exactly are you trying? once plugged in you need to go to system prefrences, accessed from the apple menu top left of screen. Select network and look for airport. Let me know what you see. It has been a while but I have set these up. You might be running XP (not sure why, OSX is way more secure, boot into it to get on line) but there is still some apple programming in the comunications.

You upgraded your PC what OS is your new system? Win 7?. Most probably the software you downloaded for your USB or PCI wireless adapter is not compatible to new OS.

From the model you mention Netgear WG111 (USB)? Drivers are for XP. Maybe you can download a newer version that support your OS.

Cannot find a driver to download for mac-----netgear wg111

Should work with Snow Leopard too. Otherwise there's a workaround using the Realtek 8187B driver, which is what's really inside your WG111.

Cannot install software for RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter


Did you check the Hardware Compatibility List to make sure that it would work on those computers? Unfortunately, not all brands work together and you should always check to make sure whatever your buying will work with the PC & Operating System you're using.

Netgear WG111 issue


The error you get from Windows about the digital signature is normal. This only means that windows hasn't tested and approved it. just as the Netgear guys will tell you, the wireless adapter is compatible and will work fine. When you get that message, you'll usually allow it or continue with the installation.

you can refer to this link for the system requirements of your Wireless adapter:
