Is the Netgear Wi-Fi Management software installed on the computer? If it is, you may have a conflict between Window's built in Wi-Fi Manager and the Netgear Wi-Fi Manager. If it isn't, you may need to install it.
Assuming it isn't, there's links to download the software at the Netgear Global Download Center.
I would default to the most current version, if you're running Windows XP, you may need to install the v2.1, however, I would assume the v3.1 would be backward compatible with XP.
Install the software and follow the prompts that will guide you through the installation/setup.
Now, if the software is already installed, you need to find the program and configure it through that avenue. If that does not fix the issue, you should uninstall the Netgear software, remove the Wi-Fi adapter and reboot the computer. After it completely boots back up, you should either plug in the Wi-Fi adapter, let Windows recognize it and install the drivers, (they should still be in the system even after you uninstalled the software). Once Windows successfully locates and installs the drivers, reboot the computer again, (no need to remove the adapter). Once Windows completely loads again, open Start, Control Panel, and System. On the resulting window, click the hardware tab at the top then click the "Hardware Manager" button in the middle about 1/3 down the window. Click the "+" next to "Network Adapters" and verify that your WN111v2 is indeed installed.
Assuming it is at this point, close out everything but the Control Panel and open "Network Connections". Find the wireless adapter there, (may be listed as "wireless connection2" depending on how many times it's been installed). Right click on the wireless device and select "Show Available Wireless Networks"
The unit can connect to the Internet by utilizing its 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, which is built in, for wireless connections or via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor for DSL connections.
For your wireless connection or Wi-Fi, the 802.11b Wi-Fi has a data rate of 11 Mbits per second and has an indoor range of 30m or approximately 98 ft. The 802.11g has the same indoor range, however the data rate is at 54 Mbits per second. If you have an existing wireless connection or are in a Wi-Fi hotspot, the unit will connect to your wireless connection automatically out of the box. If you do not have a wireless network, however, you will need to have your wireless network subscription done or set-up first. Once you have wireless Internet access, you then search for your access point, put in your security settings and you’re good to go. It would also be advisable to have a wireless router for this so that you won’t have to shuttle the connection between your PC and your Wii. Another option would be to connect your Wii via the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. This accessory allows Nintendo Wii users who do not have an existing Wi-Fi connection or a compatible Wi-Fi network to create one through their broadband or DSL connected computer. This is inserted into your existing computer’s USB port and the Wi-Fi USB Connector acts as a wireless access point for the Wii. This allows the user access to the internet and to play Wi-Fi Connection games from Nintendo Online. For your DSL connection, however, you will need to have quite a few things. You can use a WII LAN adapter to connect your Wii to your DSL modem. You can also use a router so that you can use your PC and your Wii at the same time. With the LAN Adapter though, to use or plug in the Wii, you must disconnect your PC. This can be quite tedious since you will have to plug in and out your PC and your Wii every time you need to use one or the other. A LAN Adapter is fairly cheap, but if you get a router, your PC and your Wii can go online at the same time, saving you the hassle of connecting one or the other when you need them. You can then hook up the existing ethernet cords to the back of the router and connect it to the Wii via a USB 2.0 cord.
Before doing that, make sure your wi-fi is turned on in your router. If the adapter is not seeing a signal, it may well be that your router is not broadcasting one. If you have another computer with wi-fi (like a notebook), or know someone who does, you can always use it (or theirs) to see if they can "see" the router via wi-fi, which will tell you if the problem is router or adapter.
the way to set up wi-fi is to get a wireless router its not really wireless it just has antennas then set up your wi-fi on your wii or have a wired modem and just buy the wireless USB it really is wireless then set up your wi-fi on your wii.
I have netgear and have never had that problem is ur labtop newer because u might have a wi-fi connector which in that case all u need to have is ur router hooked up to a networking computer or maybe you have the adapter in the wrong way for the pci card.
