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

Tips for a great answer:
Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless
"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
if this fails to fix the problem
try unplugging the usb wireless device
uninstall the netgear software in the add/remove programs in the control panel reboot and then reinstall the software then plug in the usb wireless adapter
hope this helps
