Please do not use the USB Extension cable that came with the adapter and instead connect the adapter directly to the computer on USB port. You may try connecting it to a diffrent USB port. Otherwise, please update the drivers for the adapter from the below link:
Go to the Netgear website, and download the newest software update. I was running 1.4 from the provided CD and got this message. I completely uninstalled 1.4 and installed 2.0.0 and it works like a treat now. All you need is the updated software.
I've had a similar problem with a USB wireless adapter working ok for over a year and it recently stopped connecting because it would keep scanning different channels every 30 seconds or so.
The solution that worked for me was to change the default radio channel on the access point (for my netgear router I did this by logging on to 192.168.1.1 and changing the settings in there).
Changing the channel from the default 11 to (lucky) 7 did the trick. The router notes say that changing channels may help if another access point is interfering with the signal, and my issue only cropped up when some new neighbors moved in so my best guess is they were also using channel 11. Hope this helps.
