Connection drops and no available network

Connection drops after 5-40 minutes. Try to scan and my WN111 can't find any available network. I need to unplug my adapter, restart windows and plug it in again. Installed new drivers but it didn't help. I have Vista and WN111 v1.

So you are using windows Vista and the wireless connection is dropping.
Do you have any other wireless computer which is working properly ?
If the other wireless is working properly then the problem is with the wireless adapter. Now you have already upgraded the drivers, then there is nothing much we can do.
If you do not have any other wireless laptop working wirelessly, then try to bring another wireless laptop in the network and check whether it works properly.
If you face the same problem on that computer also that means the router might be having problem

Hello antonhs2000,

I assume you went through the direct instructions located HERE. It does not suggest a restart anywhere on the page, so I would suggest doing that. I have always made it a habit to restart my computer after uninstalling drivers and installing drivers as well just to be safe.

WN111 adapter only detects G networks, no N networks detected!!


your problem is simple and applies to most cases. It is lack of technological expertise or lasiness. By that I mean, You did not read the router manual or did not understand it. By default that router comes up in dual band mode. Meaning that it uses 2.4 Ghz for the G and 5 GHz for the N networks. If you want to benefit fully from the WN111 performance in the N mode then you must change the router to operate in a single band mode. (see the manual for the router to see how to do that). (hint: you need to bring up a broswer and type the router's IP address. netgear login standard is: admin and password is password. Go through the router setup and read the extensive explanations for each setup.

Hi,
You are very limited here, but it's not impossible. Have you tried getting to a wired connection temporarily? A long way around would be to reinstall Win XP with a disc that includes the update. A word of warning though, the fix you have described (KB822603) is already included in SP2 on Win XP...SO... while you are connected to the wired internet connection, you may have to get an update for the driver of the netgear wireless wn111 hardware as well.
I hope this helps.
