Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)

1 Answer

Wireless USB Adapter not wanting to open.

I've installed the Wireless USB Adapter (WPN111) Along with the Netgear Wireless PCI Adapter. The installation went smoothy without any troubles, but when I restarted to try and connect to the internet, I opened the Netgear Network, and It opened for all of 4 seconds, and closed out. It continues to do this, It won't stay open. Also, the blue light on the adapter isn't coming on, either. Any ideas?

Hi This problem usually happens when the usb adapter as been plugged in before the software as been installed, try uninstalling the software restart your computer then reinstall your software, once finished close computer down plug adapter into usb port then re-start the computer hopefully this will work and you can configure the wireless settings via Netgear Network.

Can i use a Netgear WPN111 USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter with a xbox ?


No definitely not....

If you want your Xbox to be wireless, then you need to buy Xbox wireless adapter...

Bcoz the Xbox wireless adapter comes with a pre-built in drivers....
but other brand wireless adapter donot comes with a built in drivers, you need to install the drivers using a driver cd....But Xbox do not allow driver cd's to be installed on it... so you will not be able to use ordinary wireless adapter instead of Xbox wifi adapter...

Why is my connection to my netgear wpn111 so low?


Please follow these troubleshooting steps when you are unable to connect at maximum speed with your NETGEAR wireless adapter:-

1)Open the utility for your Netgear adapter and go to the Settings tab.
2)Click on Advanced Settings.
3)In Advanced settings, make sure the maximum wireless speed options (in this case, 108 and 54 ) are enabled under Wireless mode.
4)Click OK to apply the settings. Your adapter is now configured to connect at the highest wireless mode.

If these these steps does not make any difference then upload the latest drivers for the adapter.In this case it will be version 3.0.

Netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly


check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

do not connect the USB adapter to a USB hub unless the HUB is powered so that it can performed better. Connect it directly to your PC slot
