Question about Office Depot Ativa Wireless-G USB Network Adapter (AWGUA54)

Ativa Wireless-G USB Network Adapter

Uses 45% to 50% CPU time when enabled. I have to disable Wi-Fi if I need to do any CPU intensive tasks, like video editing, etc.... My system is up to date Core 2 Duo and 2 GB of RAM. I run Windows XP. Tried re-installing the adapter several times - same problem.

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.

Here is a link to the driver for your device from the ativa website. The version number is 1.0.0.3. Click on the Small down arrow on the right and you will get the download screen. Try uninstalling the adaptor then reinstalling with this one.

The only other suggestions I could find on the website is to try another usb port. Not much help.

Is this for a Notebook or a Desktop?

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.

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.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
