    It was working before yes, i had internet access and i have verizon if that means anything. For the recovered computer its an e-machines t3120. so i think windows xp. and the computer does recognize a device was plugged in it says if i had a disk to go with it put it in now or continue and i click next and then it says it can't connect to the internet

If you plug the Netgear wireless card into the computer and you get no lights then the device is probably damaged / bad.

Did it work before? Does windows recognize that a device is inserted (do you get a pop-up)?

Which version(s) of Windows are you using?

    If the computer doesn't RECOGNIZE the usb drive then NO it won't work, it's probably damaged. I'd try plugging it into another computer to test, if you get no lights or pop ups, it's probably done for :(

WG111 see network but won't stay connected

I would ensure that the product is operational by swapping it with the other WG111, then ensure that you have the card setup properly, make sure you have the lastest drivers from Netgear, I have fixed some problem with the WG111 in this fashion. If that fails then I would try upgrading to a 2.0 usb. i'll try to see if I can create this with and old machine I'll keep you posted
