Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter


Netgear WNDA3100v2 won't connect to Internet. I have connected this adapter to a brand new system build. It won't connect to the router. I can get it to connect at a friends house to his router, to my mom's, and a neighbors, but it will NOT connect to my home router. Netgear customer support was pointless and of no help. What could be wrong?! We have another computer (old WinXP machine) and it connects perfect in the same room. What gives. The system is Windows 7 Pro, Netgear WNDA3100V2 Adapter.

You can always remove the netgear software and choose to leave the driver (if that's an option) but a lot of times the drivers are bundled with the software.

Or

1. Disable any netgear startup software by going to Orb -> In the "Search Programs and files -> 'MSCONFIG' -> Startup
2. Disable any netgear services by going to Orb -> In the "Search Programs and files" -> services.msc -> Double click each netgear service and change the 'Startup type" to 'Disabled'
3. Enable Wireless Zero: http://www.inf.aber.ac.uk/advisory/...

Try wireless zero instead of the software that came with the adapter.

How. I have had this problem before. Netgear software used to have a screen during install to allow you to specify whether you wanted to use the Netgear utility or Windows to manage wireless connections. Now it doesn't, and there is no option in the settings to do so either. Grrr

Uninstall the software then put the adapter in the USB socket and see if Windows can sort it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
