For that you have to disable startup.
For that press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in "msconfig" without "" then press ok.
Then you can see system configuration utility click on last tab startup and disable all startup or netgear utility then apply and restart computer then it not open at startup.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Netgear WN111v2 Adapter disconnected


Is the Netgear Wi-Fi Management software installed on the computer? If it is, you may have a conflict between Window's built in Wi-Fi Manager and the Netgear Wi-Fi Manager. If it isn't, you may need to install it.
Assuming it isn't, there's links to download the software at the Netgear Global Download Center.

I would default to the most current version, if you're running Windows XP, you may need to install the v2.1, however, I would assume the v3.1 would be backward compatible with XP.
Install the software and follow the prompts that will guide you through the installation/setup.
Now, if the software is already installed, you need to find the program and configure it through that avenue. If that does not fix the issue, you should uninstall the Netgear software, remove the Wi-Fi adapter and reboot the computer. After it completely boots back up, you should either plug in the Wi-Fi adapter, let Windows recognize it and install the drivers, (they should still be in the system even after you uninstalled the software). Once Windows successfully locates and installs the drivers, reboot the computer again, (no need to remove the adapter). Once Windows completely loads again, open Start, Control Panel, and System. On the resulting window, click the hardware tab at the top then click the "Hardware Manager" button in the middle about 1/3 down the window. Click the "+" next to "Network Adapters" and verify that your WN111v2 is indeed installed.
Assuming it is at this point, close out everything but the Control Panel and open "Network Connections". Find the wireless adapter there, (may be listed as "wireless connection2" depending on how many times it's been installed). Right click on the wireless device and select "Show Available Wireless Networks"

How to connect to always automatically connect to your SSID


Ever turn on your computer and try to connect to the internet? Ever see all the many SSIDs in your neighborhood listed in your wireless radar or your "Windows Wireless Connection". Then you'd scroll down to double click on your SSID so that you can connect to the internet. Imagine doing this everytime you have to connect to the internet. Wouldn't that be annoying?

The Objective
The objective of this Tip/How-To is to have you turn on your computer and connect to the internet automatically via your SSID (Wireless Network Name). Hence, you wouldn't need to manually find your SSID everytime you need to connect to the internet.

6a6f420.jpg


Pre-requisites or Must haves for this Tip to work
  1. A computer with a wireless adapter
  2. A wireless router
  3. An active internet service
  4. This tip is designed for Windows XP. I will post one up for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
  5. This tip is designed to work with Wireless Networks (SSID) that do not have any passwords or encryption.

Active Tip Dictionary (throughout this TIP)
SSID
is the technical term for your broadcasted network name. This is basically what you will see listed in your WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS manager.


To make your computer connect automatically to the internet via your SSID, we will need to manually tell your computer to connect to your SSID and then we will need to save this setting so that your computer will automatically connect to your SSID everytime you turn on your computer.

Let's Begin.
Start your computer by turning it on.

Click on your Start Button.
14c207b.jpg

Move your mouse over to Control Panel and then left click on it.
ff339b2.jpg

Double click on the Network Connections icon.
8a673e8.jpg

Double click on Wireless Connection. Now in the picture above you see Wireless Connection 3 but on your screen you should see Wireless Connection.

moz-screenshot-1.png97e1e56.jpg

Now click on Properties.
5381832.jpg

Click on the Wireless Networks Tab.
b119bfe.jpg

Now scroll up and down under Preferred networks until you find your Wireless Network Name (SSID). For me, it's called linksys therefore I will select linksys.

Now click on Properties.
4c1fadb.jpg

Now click on the Connection tab.
52daf8c.jpg

Under Automatic connection, click to check "Connect when this network is in range". This will tell your computer to connect automatically to your Wireless Network Name (SSID).

Click OK to save this setting.

Click OK again to get out of the Properties window.

Click OK again to get out of the Wireless Connections window.

Then click Close to close out of the Wireless Connections window.

And there you have it, you have setup to automatically connect to your Wireless Network (SSID) everytime you turn on your computer.

Now restart your computer and give it a few seconds, and voila, you are automatically connecting to your Wireless Network (SSID). Now you can surf the internet. You can set this on all your computers at home that have a wireless card.

Remember to give me a good rating and vote for me. If you require further tips and tricks, feel free to contact me through the contact box. I will post up your tip.

Hello annwiles,

Checking IRQ Conflict in Windows 2000 or XP:

1. Click on the Start button, and click on the Run option.
2. When the Run window opens, please type in devmgmt.msc and click OK.
3. When the Device Manager Window opens, click the View menu. Then, select Resources by Connection.
4. Expand the Interrupt Request (IRQ) category to view IRQ assignments.
5. Once you find your adapter on the list, check if the number that is assigned to it is the same as anything else on the list.
6. If your adapter is sharing an IRQ with another device, you may be having an IRQ conflict.

Resolving the IRQ Conflict:

1. Try placing the Network Adapter into different PCI slots. By doing this, the BIOS will assign the network adapter a different IRQ.
2. Disabling COM and parallel ports, or built in motherboard devices (sound chips, etc) in the BIOS may help to free up their IRQ's.

Note: Changes to the BIOS can cause major problems with your computer. If you are unsure, please contact the manufacturer of the PC for further assistance.

3. You may be able to assign IRQ's by PCI slot in the BIOS. Please contact your computer manufacturer for more information.
