Do not have driver disk any longer and now have a new computer with microsoft 7. I need a driver to get my ativa wireless g usb network adapter running. I went to Ativa site and the highest they go is...

That's the problem of updating your computer's OS without verifying if your existing devices is compatible with win7 OS. For the meantime you need to hardwire your PC directly to the router if you wanted to get online. Just check their website from time to time if they have available drivers or I suggest buy another wireless adapter that's compatible with win7.

Cannot Install Ativa Drivers

Hi Mark,

apparently you are not the only one having problems installing that device. See here.

So my suggestion would be to download the driver from here.
(90Mb??? - can that thing make coffee too?. Oh I see...they included Internet Explorer 6 in that package...Jeez..).

I just assume that you're running Win XP, but the procedure for Vista is similar.

Unzip the file.

Important: Do NOT use their setup.exe!

Plug in the USB adapter and let Windows try to install it. When it can't find the driver, point to the directory, where you unzipped the files. The file you're looking for is called "ODWGU.inf".
If Windows installs some driver which might not work, go into the Device Manager and update the driver from there.

If you have problems uninstalling their software, try "Revo Uninstaller". This software has a "Hunter Mode", that will help to uninstall even the most obnoxious software. I use it all the time, because it also removes all the **** that Windows uninstallers leave behind.

Ideally you have a clean machine to start from, so you might want to begin with removing their software first.

Please let me know if this worked for you.

Hi there please help me out here, i have got a new pc prob 4 mnths old now but it there isnt no wireless on it, can yu please tell me what i have to do as i have bougt laptops for my kids bout the router...

To my knowledge, this laptop does not have an in-build wireless card. You will need to purchase a wireless USB adaptor such as pixel-clr.gif Netgear WPN111 or a D-Link WUA-1340. You can go into any computer store and ask or a wireless USB adaptor. They're fairly inexpensive ($10 - $50).

Simply load the drivers onto the laptop and plug it in. Scan for your network and connect. The manual that accompanies the USB adaptor will give you all the details you need for this.

Apple computer compatable

No it's not.
Ativa's web page (here) does not offer a driver for Mac.

"What operating system does this device support?
This device support Windows 98se, ME, 2000, and XP. It is not compatible with Mac systems."

Sorry, but you might have to look for an appropriate AirPort card.

I know this is a really.. REALLY old topic but I just now solved it for me anywho.
I opened up the Ativa utility Went to the Options tab and selected "Use the Standard Windows XP Utility Instead.", Saved Changes then went to the systems tray, right clicked onthe utility, then exited it.
