Question about NetGear MA111 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I had netgear installed on my computer before and it was working perfectly. then my husband reformat the computer, now it doesn't work. it says the connection is strong, but it won't connect. i went to the "command" and did the ipconfig /release. then when i try to do the ipconfig /renew, it says "cannot renew if media is disconnected". please help me on how do resolve this problem.
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..
