    I bought and installed the WUSB300 yesterday (without looking about references about the adapter, my fault) and got exactly the same situation.

    I am using Vista Ultimate X64; the network connection showed that I am connected just locally.

    I brought it to work by disabling the 2 "N" options (Turbo and N option generell); now it works just with a max. bandwidth of 54MBit but it works.

    I hope that Linksys update the driver soon; I don't wanna purchase a N adapter for using it in G mode.

    same problem. Especially when downloading large files, using bittorrent, or moving large files from one PC to another. Still no solution as of yet. Did disable turbo mode and currently testing to see if that works.

I have read through the site and have a lot of the same problems with my adapter. I installed a wg111 usb adapter on my computer running xp service pack 2. The internet works briefly for about 30 seconds...

ok try to configure it with windows .
follow the steps below..
Remove all software related to the wireless card
It will remove the drivers also.
then after restart it will detect the card again and then you browse for the driver from the cd.
Don't install the utility software. Only the drivers.
ok once the driver is setup configure it in windows..

one thing you make sure that your pc is not infected with spyware or virus
Use malwarebyte, scan and remove spys its free for 30 days.
ok follow steps from here to see matching
configurations :

ok open control panel then select network connection, then double click on your active wireless connection and
click properties then click wireless networking next to general tab
then you will get a window like this

ok under preferred network select the default network and click on properties
in the association window type your network key.
then remove the tick in the box below that say the key is provided for me automatically.
one thing is that be sure to use either windows configuration or the netgear software..
Don't use both or configure both they will be conflicts...

Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?

If it does we can probably search for more information.

Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?

My broadband wireless adapter isn't connecting

Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
