Netgear WG111 Wireless Adapter Won't Work With W7

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.

Netgear Adapter Won't Work
Just installed windows 7 64 bit.

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.

What should I do? Do I need to go back to 32 bit?

Wireless Adapter Won't Work On Windows 7
I recently re-installed Windows 7 to my new SSD. Now my Wireless Adapter wont work. It's a "Netopia 3D Reach (ter/gusb-n1)" adapter (usb). The drivers that i came across all say that this adapter only goes up to vista, which doesnt make sense because it worked perfectly before i reinstalled my OS. What's wrong? If you find any kind of Window 7 driver

Netgear WG111 Driver Problems
The drivers for my WG111 won't work with Windows 7 rev 7000.

It says they are unsigned in the device manager, and that is why windows doesn't like them.

I have tried the following:

1. Running the software in compatibility mode:

2. BCDedit.exe set testing, signing, etc.

Still no luck, and i can't seem to find the driver without the software installer and the software sort of halfway hangs at the end of the installation when I am trying to install, and I think this is the problem.

NetGear Wireless Adapter Will Not Detect?
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".

Netgear Wireless Adapter Not Working (W7 Upgrade)
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).

PC Won't Recognize Xbox 360 Wireless OCntroller Adapter
I made sure I got the latest 64-bit driver for my authentic 64-bit copy of windows. The controller will pair wirelessly with the adapter, but when I plug the adapter into my back USB ports (any of them), windows fails to recognize the device. I am told to go select a driver manually (even after installing the driver), and it does not work with or show any driver version. I have tried installing (multiple times) both the bundled cd 64-bit driver, and the latest 64-bit driver from Nothing works. I get to the point where The driver puts the overlay up to show how many controllers, and what controllers are connected, but when the adapter plugs in, Windows immediately makes a short "two ding" sound (like "din-din" ), and there's a symbol with a red "x" in the system tray. Windows troubleshooting fails to fix anything (no surprise there). I can't find anything on Google either. I really need help because GTA and many other games seem to play very well with the 360 controller.

Can A Netgear Wireless Usb Adapter Signal Read Off Of A Linksys Router Signal
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.

Wireless Xbox 360 Controller With Play & Charge Won't Work
This is the controller I used for my Xbox before I sold it. It still works, but my Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit doesn't seem to want to be compatible with it.


I downloaded the latest drivers and installed them, and I plug it in and it says installing device and it installs. It starts charging, but the Center button just keeps blinking, and it is showing up under device manager.

Wireless Network Adapter Will Not Work?
I just finished building a new PC and installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit today.I have an ASUS Wireless PCI Express Adapter (PCE-N13 802.11 b/g/n). DSL, with a Linksys rounter. Theres just a red X mark on the taskbar and it won't show any open connections =/. I have several wireless devices that work even outside the range which is about maybe 5 meters away from the router. Its pretty much impossible for me to run a wired connection to my PC and need to have a wireless one since theres many tables/couches/chairs inbetween the router and my new PC.

Netgear WG311 V3 Won't Run?
I have 7 Ultimate. I was recently given a NetGear WG311 V3 54/mbs Pci card. Can't seem to find out why it won't work. So many things wrong in my Os atm, but this for now. I tried the Marvell driver. Nope! Absolutely nothing in my Devices and PrintersI installed the Smart Wizard. Again, nope! I tried un-installing and re-installing both. Same as before, nope! The software, when clicked, flashes a small icon in the tray, then, bam. Gone. I now have a signal bar, with a red cross, as if my device was disabled. (Like on a laptop.)

WG111 OS Doesn't Recognize Driver
I can install the software perfectly in whatever compatibility mode or none at all but after installation it still says "unknown device" in the device manager.

I have the WG111v1 but I also tried the WG111v2 driver which makes no difference except that the last step where i need to connect the device takes forever because it can't be found.

Windows 7 Won't Boot / System Repair / Restore / Safe Mode Won't Work
I have recently installed windows ultimate x64 on my computer.i have an asus p6t deluxe v2 mobo, i7-960 cpu and a wd velociraptor hdd. The install went ok, I even managed to restart my computer a few times after but after windows updates installed it won't boot. I tried to boot into safe mode, restore from the installer, and repair, none worked. After startup repair it says: "a patch is preventing the system from starting" and I get a 0x1f error code.(Preventing windows from downloading any updates didn't work either)

Windows 7 Won't Open; Safe Mode Won't Work?
When Windows looks like it is starting, the "Windows is loading files..." message comes up. It then goes into Startup Repair, which either can't detect problem or "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically". I have tried pressing F8 for the safe mode menu, but none of the options there work either as selecting any of them just ends up in Startup Repair again. Sadly I have no system restore point or system image to reload. I have run the Windows Memory Diagnostic, which found no problems. I know that reloading Windows is almost certain to fix this problem, but I have a handful of files that I really, really don't want to lose by doing this. Is there any way that I can save my files?

Wireless Network Adapter Says It's Working Properly But It's Not?
Last night my wireless adapter (Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter) stopped working. In the properties it says it is working properly, however,it will not find a single wireless network to connect to, only the big red X over the icon in the system tray. My wife's laptop which is 5 feet from mine, finds our network as well as several of our neighbors. I upgraded to Windows 7 last month, so this morning I tried updating drivers, installed these but still the big red X. My laptop will work with the ethernet cable plugged in, just not wireless.I am stumped because it says it is working properly in the properties menu and not returning any errors during troubleshooting. I know its not my router, as my xbox, ipod touch, android phone, and wife's laptop can connect and work fine. Since she and I have the same laptop, I made sure that our properties settings were the same this morning as well, and they match up.
