If you have access to the Internet using a LAN cable, then download the Netgear wireless USB adapter to install the driver. After downloading you can remove the LAN cable.
You can also save the driver from your laptop to an USB memory stick and then install the driver in your computer with the USB memory stick.

If you have a flash drive, that would work great for transferring the files over. They are rather handy to have around. If not, do you have an ethernet cable and a router to connect to? Depending on what drivers you do have installed on the computer (I'm not sure if it is a fresh install and it is void of most drivers or not), you may be able to access the internet to download the drivers that way.

Do you have any information as to why burning the disk didn't work? That could help me find out how to help you a little bit more.

WN111 adapter only detects G networks, no N networks detected!!


your problem is simple and applies to most cases. It is lack of technological expertise or lasiness. By that I mean, You did not read the router manual or did not understand it. By default that router comes up in dual band mode. Meaning that it uses 2.4 Ghz for the G and 5 GHz for the N networks. If you want to benefit fully from the WN111 performance in the N mode then you must change the router to operate in a single band mode. (see the manual for the router to see how to do that). (hint: you need to bring up a broswer and type the router's IP address. netgear login standard is: admin and password is password. Go through the router setup and read the extensive explanations for each setup.

Connection drops and no available network


So you are using windows Vista and the wireless connection is dropping.
Do you have any other wireless computer which is working properly ?
If the other wireless is working properly then the problem is with the wireless adapter. Now you have already upgraded the drivers, then there is nothing much we can do.
If you do not have any other wireless laptop working wirelessly, then try to bring another wireless laptop in the network and check whether it works properly.
If you face the same problem on that computer also that means the router might be having problem

Hi,
You are very limited here, but it's not impossible. Have you tried getting to a wired connection temporarily? A long way around would be to reinstall Win XP with a disc that includes the update. A word of warning though, the fix you have described (KB822603) is already included in SP2 on Win XP...SO... while you are connected to the wired internet connection, you may have to get an update for the driver of the netgear wireless wn111 hardware as well.
I hope this helps.
