I recently bypassed my previous BSOD issue by simply replacing my HDD with a SSD and doing a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit Pro.
Where the computer is currently located, I need to run wireless internet. To do this, I have used a NetGear wireless adapter "WNDA3100v2". It's a nice adapter, and it's worked fine for about 2 years, including immediately prior to adding my new SSD.
So I fire up my fresh copy of windows, and install my critical software. Once all of that is sorted, I go to install the drivers from the CD. I insert the USB adapter, and click next.
As soon as the adapter is inserted, Windows begins searching for a driver which fails. On the same instant that I click next, the proprietary software for the device says "detecting". This stays this way infinitely it seems, and never detects the device. If I just yank the adapter out, it will say "failed to detect", so this leads me to believe it is at least aware that it's there?
I tried to backdoor it, and ran a wired connection through my window, down the outside of the house, to my router LOL, and forced Windows to search for it's own updated driver. On most occasions, it just says "failed", but I was able to get it to find one last night, and it downloaded to 100% before it just hung up for a while, and then "failed".
I have read a number of other posts (here and elsewhere) about getting a WG111 to work with Windows 7 on my new computer and haven't had any success. Can someone help by providing click-by-click directions? I'm not a complete novice but clearly not clever enough to follow the directions previously posted. My kids are completely frustrated with having a new machine but being able to get online.
I've upgraded my PC to Windows 7 Home Premium today (from Win XP Pro) and now the wireless network adapter does not work.
The adapter is a Netgear WG331 v1. I've tried downloading the drivers from the Netgear site - both those for the v1 and the newer drivers for the v3 and neither have fixed the issue.
I've used the Win 7 troubleshoot feature to install this driver (it is meant to be included within Win 7) but this does not work either.
I've also tried plugging the ethernet cable that normally goes directly into the back of my Netgear router into the PC, in order to provide Win 7 with internet access. However, this has not worked, with the connection apparently not recognised by the computer. I've tried to update the drivers for my PC's motherboard to remedy this, but have been unable to find any that are compatible with this version of Windows. The motherboard is MSI n1996.
Windows 7 troubleshooter shows missing drivers for the following: Multimedia Audio Controller (two of these), PCI Input Device, Ethernet Controller.
What I'm banking on is that an internet connection will enable Win 7 to locate drivers for all of these, but I am currently unable to make this happen. The internet connection is running fine and the wireless router is broadcasting the signal properly (I am accessing it right now via my laptop).
I just bought a Netgear WNA3100 wireless usb adapter for my HP Win 7 64 bit laptop. I have been trying for 2 and half days to figure out why my speed is slow, why i don't have a good signal, and/ or if I do have a bit of a signal to my luck, why my signal comes and goes. I don't have internet at home at the moment because I am trying to save up to go to school. I am picking up a public business signal from a block away (which I have asked for permission to use), but I only am receiving not much of a signal with the Netgear usb wireless adapter.
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:
I have a netgear wg311v3 adapter. Running Windows 7 64bit. It won't run the wizard.
Today i bought a wireless G USB adapter, plugged into my laptop (windows 7 x86) and it worked fine installed correctly with the windows 7 drivers i downloaded from the advantek website.
however when i plugged it into my desktop which is runnign windows 7 x64, it doesnt work. the software installs fine and the drivers too, but when i try to look for a signal , network diagnosis is tellin me that there may be a problem with the drivers. 64bit is supported, and still nothing. any ideas of what is going on?
I just upgraded a friend's HP desktop from Vista to Win 7. The Qwest 11n wireless adapter (actually an Actiontec 802ain) which worked fine in Vista, now has a problem. Everytime the computer is turned off and turned back on, the wireless adaptor disappears from Control Panel>Network Adapters, we need to reload the driver. The driver installation file is loaded on the adapter, we re-install it by unplugging/re-plugging the adapter into the usb port.It is kind of an odd install.t first the adapter shows up as a flash drive and autoplay prompts you to run Setup.exe., then it no longer shows up as a flashdrive._Windows_7.pdfso I do not have to reinstall the driver every time I turn on the computer?It was not like that on Vista.I am wondering if there is a service or something that needs to be started.Both Qwest and Actiontec have no ideas, they say the device is compatible with Windows 7.
I use Toshiba Satellite L645-S4056. I lost my recovery partition so i installed windows 7 from another DVD. Previously my laptop had home premium but i installed ultimate with a DVD. After installing computer doesnot detect any Network adapter. It doesnot even show wireless adpater in device manager so i cannot install specific driver. I went to toshiba website downloaded an exe file that install wireless driver specific to my model but still it does not recognize. While troubleshooting it says cannot detect any properly installed network adapter. Is it because of home premium and ultimate conflict ?? How do get proper driver and install it?
I have just installed Windows 7 RC on a Toshiba Satellite Pro L10 Laptop.
Broadly speaking it works except that the Wireless LAN Adapter doesn't work.
The device is reported (by Linux) as an [Air Conn] INPROCOMMIPN 2200 Wireless LAN Adapter (rev 01) (Probably from Linksys/Cisco?).
Does anyone have any idea where / how I could get a suitable driver? I have downloaded the XP & Vista32 drivers and they don't appear to work. Incidentally, I have had Windows XP Home working on this laptop.
I believed the hype, waited to buy a new computer until 7 came out. Been doing this since before there even WAS Windows, and it does it to me every time. Everything was supposed to work that worked with Vista, which was supposed to run everything that ran on XP, etc. - I got the computer, a Compaq desktop, got a Linksys wireless adapter to go with it. Wouldn't install. Wouldn't even recognize the dang thing was plugged in.
Called Linksys, talked to some woman in Indonesia who told me there was no driver for Windows 7 yet. Went back to BestBuy where I got the adapter, thinking they could help. Seems their geeks aren't any geekier than I am. Got a refund, bought a Belkin G family. At least the computer recognized that the Belkin is plugged in, and it knows there is a signal, but it refuses to connect.
That's weird. Good signal, knows it is a Motorola adapter, but will NOT connect! Re-installed it in compatibility mode. It just laughs at me. Seriously, can I go back to DOS? Barring that, is there anything else I can do besides wait for an adapter to ship with a driver that works on 7?
I have Windows 7 Pro installed on my PC, which uses a linksys wireless USB adapter for internet. I have the latest driver installed, but what happens is the driver won't be retained in the settings after I reboot it. The only way to keep this from happening is to hibernate the PC. Never had this problem before and it seems very odd to me since I don't see a reason for Windows to delete the driver.
I have Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and I need the 2wire 802.11g Wireless USB adapter driver 64 bit version. I can't seem to find it. Apparently the cd I have won't work on installing the drivers on 64 bit version and I can't use the internet in my room unless I have the drivers for it.Everytime I point my computer to look at the cd it says it couldn't find the right drivers. It worked on Windows 7 32 bit and Windows XP and Vista. But it won't work on Windows 7 64 bit. Here is a picture of the device: url...
"Problem with the driver for Wireless Adapter".I have an HP-Pavilion 2009f with Windows 7 home premium 64-bit. All has been fine with my internet connection, except for a few drops here and there, but all in all it has been tolerable. When I went to bed last night it worked, when I woke up, it didn't. When I troubleshoot I get the message, "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection Adapter", to which Windows cannot fix. I get this same error message, respectively, for both wired and wireless connections. After troubleshooting without success, I decided to try and do system update.I am only connected with "Limited Access".What's even weirder is when I open a cmd window and enter ipconfig /all.
As you can see today when I got on my laptop I wasn't able to connect to the Internet and after attempting to troubleshoot I got this error message along with one saying a network cable is not properly plugged in or is broken. We recently switched Internet service providers and the Internet has been running fine. The only proble I had was sometimes it would randomly drop in speed but I don't think that has anything to do with the issue. Last night it was working perfectly, but then it went slow so I unplugged our router and then disabled the wireless network then reeanbled it. Anyways I've been using this network for a few months now without issues but I think the issue lies within my computer. I checked for windows updates and installed them but no luck. Then I checked for driver updates for my adapters but they were up to date. I don't have any screenshots and I'm on a tablet. Also please use the simplest terms possible because while I have a basic understanding of these things, I'm no expert and I don't want to miss anything
I am having a Sony Vaio VGN-CR35 model computer. It came installed with Vista and recently I purchased Windows 7 and installed in my system. I was able to find drivers and fix everything, but my WiFi is not working
Is there a windows 7 driver for a DWL-G122 wireless usb adapter? I have the installation CD that worked for my computer with windows XP, but my new computer with windows 7 won't register this usb adapter?

I've been having intermittent disconnection issues with my wireless card, DWA-552. After having thoroughly researched on the subject, the conclusion drawn by many people is that dlink's drivers are inappropriate for the card. It was suggested to install the Atheros driver instead, which i proceeded to do. Much to my confusion, when i downloaded the AR5008 10.0.0.75 driver, i found no .exe file to easily setup the driver.
Driver for Linksys Wireless pci adapter will not install on Windows 7 x64. Is there anyway I can force it to install or extract the driver somehow? It worked fine in my Vista Home Premium 32 so it should work right?
