I picked up the Motorola WPCI810GP 802.11g/b Wireless adapter at a garage sale for my second computer, but I have no installation disc, and my computer gets cranky without the software. Where can I it?

The WEP key is set in the wireless router you're trying to connect to, and that's the one you need to know. When you put the adapter in your computer and try to connect, you'll need to provide the code. There's nothing built into the wireless adapter already.
If you're trying to connect to a network and you don't know the key, you'll need to get it from someone who does. Or, if this is your own wireless router and was set up but now you've forgotten the key, you can reset it. There will be a recessed RESET button on the router's back panel. Press and hold it for 10 seconds and release it. The router will restart and all its settings will back to factory defaults. Then you can enter the wireless setup page and create a new WEP key.
one thing you may need to do is go in the Internet Options Folder then click on connections tab on the top.. then click on lan settings at the bottom..the put a check mark in the automaticly detect proxy settings.. make sure no other boxes are checked.. close the browser and re-open it.. and so long as you have a connection to your router it should work.. if not post what version of windows you are using and the wireless settings..everything on the page when you run ipconfig post..
Hi This problem usually happens when the usb adapter as been plugged in before the software as been installed, try uninstalling the software restart your computer then reinstall your software, once finished close computer down plug adapter into usb port then re-start the computer hopefully this will work and you can configure the wireless settings via Netgear Network.
In your Device Manager, uninstall all instances of the wifi card, shutdown. Physically remove the PCI wifi cards from the motherboard. Reboot in Safe Mode. Verify that no wifi card is installed in the Device Manager. Power down, reinstall the Wifi Card, reboot, Windows should auto detect and auto install.
You may need the original CD installer of the card, if not available, you need to download the drivers before uninstalling the card. As a precaution, use the features of System Restore.
Hope this give you an idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
