Question about NetGear Wireless-G USB Adapter (WG111NAWG111US)

1 Answer

We are trying to set up a wireless-g USB adapter to a notebook. We already have another computer hooked up to the netgear. The notebook does not have a CD rom drive so do we need to download it from the main computer and hook it up that way? Thank you for your help.

If you are using windows and it dosn't have a driver of some sort for the wireless dongle (USB adapter), then you will have to hook up the computer directly with a "Wired" network connection, (Perhaps using the connection from the other computer), to download a driver.

If Windows does have the driver and it's working. Go to your Network Connections folder, and into the Properties of the Wireless Connetion and set it to use, "Windows Zero Configuration Tool" to manage this connection; as opposed to a wireless management tool included with the device.

An option should be around there that allows you to "View Available Wireless Networks". Take that option and look for your Router's SSID, or name. It should be the one with the strongest signal.
Double click it, or select Connect.

You will need the security settings here.
Enter it if you know what it is.
Copy them from the other computer's advanced wireless network settings, or if the other computer is a Wired Network computer, then browse with the Internet browser to it's network connections "Default Gateway" address, Usually 192.168.x.x where the x's are 0 or 1.

Get the Default gateway by opening a Command Window, (Command Prompt / DOS prompt) and typing:

ipconfig /all

This will list the network connecitons IP addresses, and Default Gateways.

Once in the Default Gateway on the Web Browser, log in and look for the Wireless security settings.
Get the Key listed there, and use that on the notebook wireless conneciton.

Hope this helps,
Cheers.

I just bought the NetGear wireless adapter today. the process runs smoothly until it asks me to hook the wireless adapter. A box pops up stating "detecting wireless adapter" it stays like that...


It looks like your NetGear WNA3100 is dead out of the box.
The software looks like it operating correctly (runs the installed diag, tries to detect, etc.), but
the software isn't having any luck finding the hardware.
The reason that the adapter is disabled in Device Management, is that the software seems
to have correctly installed the driver, but Windows couldn't detect (plug & play) the device, so
Windows didn't enable the device driver - Windows won't load a driver for a non-existent device.
Other (remote) possibilities:
(a) Wi-Fi adapter plugged into a bad USB port. - try another port.
(b) there's a little corrosion on USB contacts of USB port or WNA3100. Try plugging adapter
in and out of the port a few times (this shines up the contacts a bit).
(c) there's a slight misalignment of contacts within the USB connector or either the laptop, or
the WNA3100.
Your fix may be returning the NetGear WNA3100 to the retailer for an exchange.
