Sounds like you've picked up a virus or developed some malware. If you have spyware get it to run a disgnostic test on your computer with the USB in the slot. That way it will check it too. If you don't have any such spyware and running a microsoft product got to www.microsoft/support.com or to Microsoft.com/help and they have some real good program built into windows to help you.

Hello. Have you tried uninstalling the driver on the computer, and reinstalling the most up-to-date driver for the adapter? If not, I would suggest trying this first. Otherwise, have you been using the usb drive for other things? It may also have to do with the Usb connection, or even the usb drivers. Try another usb device to see if they have the same issue. Many times, it involves the drivers.
Hope this helps and best of luck

The orange blinking light tells you, you have not got an internet connection. Check the settings on the router.

My Netgear WPN824 wireless router stopped working. With the exception of the internet LED (which doesn't come on at all), all of the lights are blue and doing sort of a slow, pulsating blink. No m


The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.

Hi, my WNA3100 Wireless adapter does not work with windows 7, tried reinstalling the drivers and it still does not detect it, tried in my laptop wich has XP, works perfectly. How can I resolve this...


I did this and it worked for me.

*do not connect device to computer yet


**uninstall any previous versions of the software


1. run WNA 3100 v1.1.3.22 setup in normal mode, do not connect device when it asks you to


2. restart computer and boot up in safe mode (hold F8 after turning on comp before windows logo comes up)


3. once loaded in safe mode, connect wireless device, let windows install it


4. once done, start computer in normal mode

Wont connect to internet


You need to reset the router if the lights are flashing. Press the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds then release it. Now unplug the power for 20 mins as well and plug it back in. Make sure your connection is right. PC connected to port 1 and modem to WAN or Internet port.

Internet Connects but disconnects suddenly


Who is your ISP?
It seems you are experiencing intermittent connection. Bypass the router and check if the same problem exist when connected directly to the modem. If the internet works fine with the modem.then you have to configure the router correctly.
