Not able to Enable a Netgear WNDA3100v2 or A6200 WiFi adapte

Specs: Windows 7 64-bit, Intel Core 2 2.4GHz
Okay, it's now 13 Sep 2015 and I went around in circles to figure this out. I saw the same issues, to the point of knowing the driver was installed bu tthe Netgear tools never enable the WNDA3100v2, and one cannot manually enable it either.

Also tried a USB A6200 device, with the same results.

However, I did make this work, and it's kind of simple in my case. I was running the free Zone Labs Firewall & A/V package. And who's A/V package do they use you ask? Kaspersky! Kaspersky has a known issue with allowing proper installation of Netgear USB wireless adapters. So I followed the recommended guidense of a full uninstall of any Netgear WNDA3100v2 and A6200 drivers and software. Then a full uninstall of Zone Labs tools, reboot the computer, then reinstalled the WNDA3100v2 software. Followed the directions, recognition of the USB WiFi adapter was instant. Changed the device setting for being Enabled to auto connect if wired adapter is not connected, and here we are fully functional.

Of course now I need to reinstall Zone Labs software, which according to the write up I read at Zome Labs, it should all just work now.

Try this method if nothing else seems to work.

Can't recall your original post just now... But thank you for the workaround you seem to have discovered/executed. It may (as you suggest) help others with a similar/the same problem...

Incidentally I used to find that some D-link print servers wouldn't be detected initially unless the firewall was temporarily disabled. Usual (It was Zone Alarm firewall; but also the default in windows seemed to be same on occasion).
