    problem now fixed . I have since found out that a lot of people are having problems with the netgear adapters. What worked for me was to go on the netgear website and download the version 2 software it been working now for two weeks and no problems.

    I have the netgear adapter and it keeps losing the signal.When the signal is lost I can not even open the software at all. I have recently downloaded the new version of the driver - but that has not made a difference. Three other computers on the network have no problems!.

You may find that either the signal strenf=ght is not there or there are other devices near by on the same channel as the router.

Use THIS app to test the signal strength and check the channels is use also

You may want to either move the router to a higher postion (on a shelf) or get an external antenna for it to boost range. Be aware that cordless phones are a source of interferance so thias may affect signal strength, reception etc. Put some distance between such devices and the router/widfi card etc.

Netgear WG111v3 adapter keeps stopping


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:

ADAPTER not working


Check the distance bet computer and the Router.
Donot keep your router near television, microwaveoven or any radio active devces, it may reduce the performance.
Check the Antena terminals for any loose connections.
If possible check your wireless signal strength with another Laptop, to diagnose the router is working fine.
If everything seems to be fine, it maybe the issue with the Adapter.

Netgear wg111v3 adapter quit working with an error message


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.
