Hi, Assuming that the device is enabled but can not connect, sometimes the stock/built-in Windows (XP Pro SP2) Wifi Connection utility doesn't work well with NetGear. In a Sony Vaio + NetGear MA521, to make it work, I have to download and run a Configuration Utility from NetGear download/support site. The NetGear Configuration Utility is different from the NetGear drivers. Also it may be available in the installer CD that came with your NetGear wifi usb. After downloading, installing and running, follow on screen instructions. Good luck and post again how things went or should you need further information. Kind regards.

I think you may that the "Drivers" & OR settings for this WiFi adapter are not working correctly. What ya need to do is Install the "Drivers" & "Software" from the Netgear CD that came with ya device and set it all up per your manual. Here are a couple of links to help below.. mobileoffice.about.com/od/findingusinghotspots/l/blwificonnectio.htm www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/bowman_02april08.mspx Basically, ya install the drivers & software reboot, insert ya USB WiFi into ya USB port, if it then asks for "Drives" point it to ya CD... when finished then you should be able to "See" ya Access point etc.. and connect.. setting any protocols you wish..

Scroll on touchpad doesn't work after i reformatted computer


Have you installed the driver for your touchpad that comes with your laptop? That's the common problem when you reformat your laptop that something that worked previously then after reformatting that something don't work anymore. Remember that reformatting erases everything including drivers, special programs that comes with youre laptop. You mustve at least the drivers at hand before refromatting. Check youre manufacturers site if you do not have the drivers. A quick tip when searching for drivers is type the manufacturer first ex. Sony, Toshiba then put in space then add in the word support.
Hope this helps.

Hi Leah,
If connecting your pc directly to the modem is faster. Definitely it is the routers fault. If it is still slow then it is your Earthlink DSL is faulty.
You can try reducing the MTU size (default is 1500). You can try these values 1492 or 1300 whichever works fine. You have to access the router's setup page to do this.
Click the link below on how to change the MTU size on a netgear router.

As you said that you have reformatted the computer , try to reinstall your USB bus controller drivers because it seems that your USB bus controller is not detecting your USB adapter when connected.

Hi,

If you want to upgrade the firmware on the router then please do it on a hardwired windows computer. Firmware wont upload on the router through a MAC computer. I would suggest you to follow the steps below to configure settings on the router:

Scan for the wireless network on the wireless enabled computers and connect to the network.

Hope, this helps.

check the Network adapter is installed properly. Check if the drivers had been installed properly.

3. Click the (+) sign on Network Adapters and select the adapter.

Netgear Wireless USB 2.0 adaptor cannot find a signal


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.

Setting up wireless connection


Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.

Wireless crd


Hi alioops, unless you're using a laptop with the FS7600, normally you can't use or install the netgear wireless pc card (WG511;PCMCIA Card) to a regular desktop computer. If however, you're using a laptop, then you have to find a narrow rectangular slot normally at the side of the laptop with flip or hinge cover. Merely pushing in the Netgear Wirteless PC Card into the said slot would physically install it. Of course, it has to fit snugly and perfectly in order to work. Further you may have to install the drivers that are in a CD that comes with the card. Hopes this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
