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.

Is a canon Pixma MP160 a wireless printer? I would like to make my printer which I now use a usb cord and make the printer a wireless connection instead, and I cannot find in the manual if it is wireless...


Per the information found here, it is not a wireless printer.
If you purchase a wireless print server (similar to a wireless router), you can connect just about any USB printer to it (which would be practically the same as having a wireless printer).
Some wireless print servers that support USB have a maximum of 2 USB ports and 4 or 5 network ports.
The only problem is the additional effort it takes to configure everything to work properly.
Good Luck!
