The Netgear Wireless USB adapter should be connected to your Avertec N1200 laptop to act as a wireless antenna. The driver for your Netgear Wireless Adapter should also be installed on your laptop. Once installed, click on the Windows Orb button on the lower left corner of your screen and go to All Programs. Look for the installed program for your Netgear Wireless Adapter to open up the wireless utility of your wireless adapter. That's where you should connect the wireless connection and not on Windows Wireless Manager.

If your Operating System in your laptop is windows 7,this is a known issue. You need to have the updated drivers on your netgear wireless adapter. If you are using windows vista or XP there should be no problem. Can you also provide me the model of your laptop?

If the laptop cannot connect to the wireless router then the wireless card in the laptop has not been configured with the router's wireless settings.
To secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and wireless card in the laptop, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

New netgear adapter on my laptop & can't get on the internt

I think you need to set up you home wireless network on your laptop again. I asume you set it up with your first adapter, but you need to set it up for the new adapter. If this doesn't help, include OS type on laptop. Then I can give a better solution.

Netgear wirless and acer laptop/ lapt. not seeing mac address/net

Probably your adapter has one ip fixed address.
Check on the network, your ip adapter settings and be sure that the option "obtain the ip address automatically" is selected.

Go to -->> Control Panel --->> Network Connections --->> Select your connection and go to properties --->> in the center field Select internet protocol TCP/IP---then hit--Properties---Go to General and set your connection as automatically there.

Wireless network setup


Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
