Question about NetGear WirelessN 300 USB Adapter WNA3100

1 Answer

My WNA3100 adapter won't install; it practically freezes on "Detecting Adapter...". I read that Windows 7 sometimes installs these automatically, and mine did that, but I don't see the Wireless Network Connection list icon on the sidebar. What's wrong, and how can I fix it?

Windows 8 computer won't detect netgear n300


It might not need for WIn8 to detect the adapter. when that screen appears cancel/close of otherwise kill the process and see if the adapter is recognized in Device Manager without any error icons.

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.

You can manually access the routher by typing 192.168.1.1 into the web browser once it has connected to the internet. You then can set up wireless access points and set a WEP, etc for security. This would also allow your adaptor to connect to the router once you have set everything up. The default username and pass for routers is usally: User: admin ...password: password


Please accept if this has helped you!

Not detecting adapter


I have a solution!!! The issue is with your antivirus software. I believe you have KASPERSKY antivirus software on the computer and that is what causing the issue. Please uninstall KASPERSKY and then retry the installation of the adapter. I strongly believe the adapter would succesfully install. Now you can go ahead and reinstall the KASPERSKY. Have a nice day!!
