Hi dependent on what operating system you have you can turn off Upnp this is what is starting the auto install of the drivers, here is a link for you to download a utillity for this if you have windows xp http://grc.com/UnPnP/UnPnP.htm for windows 7/vista ,To disable it go to Start and type gpedit.msc in the Start Search and press Enter. Once Local Group Policy Editor is open navigate to,Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Driver Installation, Now from the right sidebar open the key named "Turn Off Windows Update Device Driver Search Prompt" and select Enabled and click OK Now Restart your computer or Log Off and then sign back in. That's it. Now Windows bother you any more. Enjoy! hope this helps

Try NETGEAR Router, but not router , instead look for your model.

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.
