I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Power down PC...while it off remove USB wifi adapter....power on PC. When PC has finished booting up, search in the uninstall programs list for any software related Netgear and uninstall it. Reboot and start the process again.

According to the system requirements for that device, it does not support windows 10, which may be you issue.

So I had just finished building and setting up my new rig yesterday and today I got a Netgear adapter.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

When you installed the driver for your Netgear wireless adapter, did you download the latest driver from the Netgear's site?

Please provide an ipconfig /all for review.
Click on Start button then type cmd , see on the top right click on it and choose Run as Administrator. From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results on your next post.

As far as I know I have the latest drivers for the wifi adapter and also downloaded netgear wifi genie to see available wifi signals.

Any ideas on what I can do to get it to connect to wifi?

What do I do?
 

A:Netgear N300 can't see wifi

Try the factory reset. There's a a small reset button in the back, press it down (sometimes you have to use a pen if it's one of those pin hole things) for about 5 seconds and that takes it back to factory settings. At that point you can either run the install CD that came with the router, or set it up manually from your browser.

I just bought the adapter today and tried installing it on my Windows 8.1 Desktop PC. I followed the directions on the manual and installed the Windows Adapter Software and clicked on Check for Updates. Then it downloaded the latest version of the software which I installed, but when it asked me to plug in the adapter and press Next, I plugged it in and pressed Next, It says it is detecting, but after a few minutes it says it can not detect the adapter when I have it connected. I have tried reinstalling, rebooting, nothing changed. I went to Control Panel's network adapter settings to realize it is not enabled, as I tried to enable it it can not be enabled. Though in the Devices list it has been recognized. I am currently using the 2.5GHz network with my on board card but I need the 5GHz speed as it is the sheer reason I bought this adapter. But unfortuanetly it has not worked.

If anyone can help me I would thank you greatly!

Hi all,

Today I installed the latest netgear drivers for this wireless adapter of mine to hopefully improve my wifi signal on my PC, as it has been a bit slow recently and I thought the drivers were outdated or something. However since doing this my WiFi has now decided to disconect all the time meaning I am not really able to use the internet anymore. It just disconects me and I have to just re-conect again all the time. I have no removed those drivers and the problem still persists. Can anyone help?

Internet service provider is Virgin Media, also using a netgear router. I have AVG 2014 free on my PC. If anymore info is required I will add it

I have Windows 7 Enterprise N, a desktop not a laptop. Cheers,

Have you checked Event Viewer for clues?

Don't know if this would help but I had a similar problem that was not easy to find the cause of. I had my router set up to a static IP for my PC, but because of a bug in my Netgear router it couldn't handle Mac addresses beginning with something else than 00. So the router always kept trying to reconnect my PC because it couldn't allocate the correct IP to it.
The solution was to disable obtain IP automatically on my PC, and set a static IP outside the DHCP interval from my router.

I held down the power button to turn it off and after turning it on my wifi adapter had 'disappeared' again. I believe that the boot up had something to do with this.  I  read that other users have had the same problem and I'm running system tests on the computer now, so far it passed quick tests but I'm running an extensive test on the hard drive now.

Hello!

I registered to forums to get help to solve wireless adapter issue I am having.

I have been looking for help in Lenovo forums and AV provider: problem is still on.

Background

I changed AV software from Symantec to F-Secure. I uninstalled Symantec software and installed F-Secure software. Laptop is Lenovo T520.

What happened

First I recognized that ping commands caused Windows to crash. Then I uninstalled some VPN softwares and ping started to work. Operation did something to wireless and LAN connections, they did not work anymore.

LAN started to work by removing LAN drivers from device manager and reboot. After reboot Windows reinstalled LAN drivers and LAN was ok.

Wireless is a pain in there. I have tried almost everything. All Lenovo provided network softwares and power management tools are uninstalled and reinstalled together with wireless drivers. Wireless driver is not recognized by Windows.

None of automatic repairs or wifi uninstallation operations have corrected problem.

I collected some logs which might help, but now I do not know how to proceed. Windows reinstallation is something which I do not want to do.

Hi there, first time actually posting on this forum. As the title says, I have a Belkkin N300 Micro USB dongle that up until about a week ago, has worked like a charm. Then out of nowhere it starts acting up. Now every 30minutes-2hours(if I'm lucky) it loses connection and I can no longer access the internet. It will say that it is still connected, but I can't do anything. If i try to repair the connection, it gets an error on the last step Registering DNS and can't fix itself. If I attempt to go in and re connect to the wireless network it says that Windows is not managing the wireless networks and to turn Wireless Zero Configuration on(which I have done).

However, when I start it up there's no problem whatsoever until this happens again. On a somewhat related note, when this all started something went wrong to where I couldn't connect to google.com directly. Rather I had to search google on Yahoo or some other site and then click google's link. Not sure if that's relevant. Anyways my room is too far from the router to run an ethernet cord to it. I have already tried reinstalling the drivers for the USB dongle and no change. I have seen from some other posts that the typical first response is to ask for the ipconfig/all so I will post that below. I uninstalled my virus protection, have tried all the turn it off and on simple stuff and don't know what else to try. Oh and my ISP is AT&T through their UVERSE package deal, the router...

Welcome to the Sevem Forums, Oraz.

If you still have the DVD of Windows 7 home edition and if it is also 64-bit then you might find the graphics adapter driver there which might get installed. Otherwise try installing Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 in Windows XP SP3 mode.

Another option is to try installing the Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 that you have downloaded in the safe mode. In case the this driver gets loaded in the safe mode then it shall install too.

I DO have the latest driver for the adapter. So please don't nag about the "driver" update. However, there is a problem with the USB port driver. For some strange reason, when I go to "Device Manager" I get a problem with a USB driver not being installed. It looks like this:

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you. Like I said, It's not the Wireless Adapter's Driver problem because I already have it fully updated and working (The adapter works on other computers but not my Asus m52bc). I think it's the USB driver problem. If you point me to a direction on where I can install the USB driver would be greatly appreciated thanks.

A:WiFi Miniport Adapter/Adapter #2 Error

The virtual wifi mini port adaptor is used as a virtual wifi device so you can turn your machine into a wireless AP "access point" either with commands or the connectify software. The adaptor sometimes activates itself and causes problems, even when your not using it as an access point.

It should fix the problem if you go into device manager, go to "view" top of page, then choose "show hidden devices" which should allow you to see the mini port, disable the virtual mini port adaptor and that should fix the problem.

That little button next to the power button is a reset button, it's like restarting but a little different.

In the adapter smart wizard screen on the computer, in the place where it should say my connection status, all it says is: _._._._

I am sure that is my problem right there to why I am not connected to the internet, but I don't know how to fix it!

I'm using a pci wireless adapter chip, Netgear wg311v3 I installed the netgear driver automatically, and then installed the netger smart wizard. However, the smart wizard will not start up. I've done some research, and apparently netgear doesn't make 64bit drivers. I've also tried using the chipset driver which is a Marvell 88w8335. But I may not have used the right driver.

To sum it up:

The computer having troubles connecting using the adapter is located downstairs. To get an internet connection, I need to turn off the power to the modem first and then the router before booting the computer with the adapter. While the computer is booting, I need to turn on the modem first then the router. For about 5 minutes or so the adapter looks for an connection with the router and finally connects. I need to do this everytime when I turn on the computer and then its not 100%. I have lost the connection while on the internet. If I move the adapter closer to the router by using extension USB cables, will this solve the problem? Or is it a more complex problem! I cannot move the router closer!

I uninstalled the driver and wizard and started again, no more validate settings and connection details saved fine. Connected but still scanning so I've now removed the wiazard and use the Windows utility to detect and control the wireless and this works but only for a few minutes.

The issue appears to be with the adapter, after between 2 and 6 mins the blue light goes off and I lose net connection. The only way to get it back is via a PC reboot and then it all works fine again for 2 - 6 mins.

Is this a known issue with the adapter? Few years old so could be it's faulty but with USB devices I would expect it to fail and not work rather than the symptoms I have.
 

A:Netgear USB Adapter Turns Off?

I wonder if it is the adapter, or power settings that turn off the port after an idle time. In your power options, in the advanced section, there is a section on USB where "USB-suspend" can be enabled or disabled.

Hi.
I have just made a dual boot system with my win7 pc and installed XP SP3 Pro on it.
When I go into Win7 my netgear adapter works pergectly but when I tried to install it on Win XP it doesnt even recognise that it is plugged in but it does recognise my other adapter which i prefer not to use although I would if it was the only option.

The problem with the one that is recognised is that it doesnt seem to react to the drivers and I have tried doing everything the setup program says but it still wont work.

If anyone could tell me why XP doesnt even know that my netgear adapter is plugged in it would be great.

Or maybe tell me how to fix the problem with the other one ?? - It's a BELKIN F5D7050 Wirteless adapter.
Hope to hear from someone soon.

Thanks

P.S.

If I have put this in the wrong section then I apologise in advance.

O.K., First of all i have a netgear wireless usb adapter which is wirelessly connected to a linksys router on my uncle's computer which i don't have access to because he is on vacation. I have tried Mozilla Firefox and IE6 but they don't help.

So on to my problem. Most sites i try to connect to won't even load (i.e. microsoft.com). They just don't load.

I have no spyware and no viruses so im clean.

If any of you guys could help that would be great.

You should always configure a router with a wired connection.

I installed a Netgear adapter on 2nd pc a while back. It is very balky. I installed it using their "wizard" rather than WZC. It connects and disconnects at least 3 times before it finally settles down and connects for the duration. I guess this is o.k. but I'd rather it ran a little more smoothly. I emailed their tech supp dept - they told me to essentially reinstall using WZC which I will do. They also said to disconnect the firewall I have running on the adapter pc as the router pc has a built in firewall which is probably interfering with the adapter software firewall - do you think this is ok to do? I know the Actiontec m1424wr router does have a firewall built in. Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks
 

A:Netgear adapter issues

Just a thought.
Make sure that you do not have more than one wireless manager running.(Netgear and WZC).That will cause conflicts and quirky performance.
Regarding Firewall issues.
I have windows firewall running and my router has it's firewall running.No problem.Again,I would make sure that two wireless managers are not running.

reformatted my computer .ethernetted my wireless router and downloaded avg 8.0 Removed the wireless router and tried to install netgear wg111t wireless adapter but it will not install please help

A:netgear wireless adapter

Well for starters do u have the disk that came with the adapter, because if you do then I would recommend that you just pop that in and install and then you are all set. If you don't then just jet on over to the netgear site and download the drivers for your adapter, install, and you will be all set.

Cheers!

HII have an HP envy bought in 2016. Just found out that it doesnt have a dual band adapter duet to which I am having issues at several places where I need to connect to wifi. How can I get this resolved, my machine is still under warranty . Secondly almost everytime I come into my home or office network my laptop fails to detect the wifi and I have to restart the machine to get online. This is very inconvenient. Can anyone suggest a way out. Has any of you with the same machine noticed that its a bit slow, even after being the configuration that it is. My old laptop boots and performs much faster.  Cheers 

A:Network Adapter not detecting 5Ghz

You simply identify the laptop as an Envy and there are lots of Envy models. Please specify yours. If your laptop does not have a dual band (5 ghz) wireless card the only way to get one is to replace your card and install a dual band card. That is not going to be a warranty thing it will be at your expense. As for the slow performance that is going to require a bit more information and troubleshooting.

Hi, i have a laptop and it had a version of windows 8 release preview on it. I just finished re-installing windows 7 over top of it with the key that came with the laptop, and when i booted it up it could not connect to the internet. I did some troubleshooting and it looks like i have no network adapter installed. Also, in the device manager under other devices it shows and Ethernet and Network controller and both have a yellow exclamation mark next to them.
I have also read that i should mess around with some options in the control panel > network and internet > network connections menu but there is nothing there! I am at a loss so i am hoping maybe somebody here can give me some advice?

Okay, this is kind of a funny story here, but I will cut it short. I have a Linksys Gateway Adapter (WMP54G V2). I have 2 computers: 1 is wireless and the other is hardwired through the router/modem. I want to basically switch this setup (meaning my wireless computer become hardwired and my once hardwired computer become wireless). Everything went fine... I took out my network adapter in my wireless comp. and I hooked up the modem and router to my once wireless computer. I could get on the internet fine with it. (by the way, my router is a WRT54GS v7)

The trouble starts when I try to install the network adapter in my ONCE wired computer. I slide it into a PCI slot, successfully finish the Found New Hardware Wizard and everything... BUT the Wireless Internet Connection icon is not in the taskbar! When I go to my network connections, there is nothing there!
Also, device manager shows that it should be fully working....
Any ideas?

Hi All,

Details :

I just installed winXP as a second boot option following a thread on here to use easyboot. Everything went fine I can dual boot just fine. My problem is WINXP does not detect my network cards and I cannot connect to the internet. I downloaded the drivers on another computer and transferred them, when I tried to install the driver I got this error...

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package. "

Here is a link to the driver I tried to download and install

Toshiba Network Drivers for Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7

I downloaded an updated version of MSI but it did not work.

Download details: Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable

I downloaded the winxp file

Here is my system details

Win7/winxp-sp3 Updated to newest versions (as far as I know)
Toshiba Laptop Satellete p500

I tried to remedy like I said but could not get any where. Thank you for your time.

~May the force be with you.

Hi,

This is for Windows 7. Earlier today my wireless network displayed an error reading something like 'There is limited or no connectivity'. I usually select the network and click Disconnect, before reconnecting again. However, I have not been able to re-connect today since there is a red X preventing networks from being found. I know that the wireless network is working for my laptop, so there must be an issue with my computer.

I have tried restarting computer, removing security from router, resetting router to factory settings, enabling and disabling network drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling network drivers. I have also tried several system restores, some of which did not resolve the issue and some of which did not complete successfully.

Your help would be much appreciated.

At the moment I am trying to uninstall network drivers and then restart computer. In my earlier attempt I uninstalled and scanned straight away so that Windows would reinstall them. I doubt this will work.

P.S Wired connection works fine.
