Preferred Solution: Netgear N300 WiFi USB Mini Adapter stuck detecting adapter

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Netgear N300 WiFi USB Mini Adapter stuck detecting adapter

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. I installed everything and it went fine until it started going in and out giving me the "Default Gateway" error. I searched for what is now 4 hours and tried every solution possible, but I cannot seem to fix it. I will provide any information I can, just tell me what you need.

A:Netgear N300 Wireless Adapter Default Gateway is not Available

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.

I have just bought my self a new laptop (MSI GE 72 apache pro) and I noticed that no software can detect my wireless adapter, when I installed connectify it said it couldn't find a wifi colnection when I was clearly on my home wifi. Now when I try to run a mac adress scanning program it can't find my wifi connection either. i have never had this problem on my previous laptop before. Anyone knows what is causing this ?

Is there any way i can boost the incoming signal to my netgear wifi adapter,only fifty yards from router and showing two bars on meter
 

Relevancy 99.33%

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,

Henry

A:WiFi disconects all the time on my PC-using Netgear WN311B adapter

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 recently moved to a new home and I set up my pc and the wireless adapter can't even see the wifi despite picking up my neighbours which have very weak signals.
My phone and my laptop both see it and connect with full strength.

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.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Do you happen to know the name of the driver?

It will be on the CD that came with the product.

Look on the CD for the driver and please reply with the name of the folder containing the driver.

It will be something like "RTL8188SU"

Hello, I recently had an issue with my wifi adapter that was solved earlier here but the problem resurfaced again when I booted up the computer and it was stuck at the loading screen with the HP logo. 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. Some help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi Ron, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try this to start

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.

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.

Also can anyone tell me what the white light up button next to the power button does??

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.

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.

Put the USB cd in the desk top finds the connection to Router,
When we try to connect to Internet no connection.
Should I have first used the ROUTER cd withe the cable to set that up first?
Sorry i am so vague but not really Tech minded

Thanks in Advance

You should always configure a router with a wired connection.

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.

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.

I had a desktop with a N router and used this adapter with my laptop. I eliminated the desktop & router and now only use the laptop. Can this adapter be used for any other

Looks like it is also wireless G compatable,so you can use
it at open wifi spots on the road.
Should also be able to set it to ad-hoc mode in case you ever need
to transfer files to another wireless computer.
Other than that,networking is the only function it is designed for.

A:Netgear USB adapter not working

try taking the WEP off run with NO secruity and see how that works.

although she is 30ft and your sons further away - it depends on what between the router and her PC - Walls, Doors, etc

My router is in the front bedroom cubboard and I can use it in the back garden - but one of the back bedrooms will not pickup the signal !!!!!

download this software - it will measure signal strength and all the other channels being broadcast - you may just need to change channels - maybe use 1 or 6 or 11

Hey Guys, here's my situation:

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 W7 64bit. It won't run the wizard.

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

Thanks.

Hello JokerSmoker Welcome to the Se7enforums!

You may not find any past XP/Windows Server 2003 unfortunately since this seems to be a common problem for many. Unfortunately there is 64bit Vista support with the latest actually last going back to February 2008. Answer

In order to run the adapter on 7 you will need the 32bit 7 that will work with the 32bit XP/Vista update seen there.

Hello,

Having an issue getting this adapter to run smoothly in Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have installed the driver from the site and it runs ok to a point:

WG111 - NETGEAR.com

- The install comes with Netgear wireless software that scans for the hotspot and I am able to connect to my home wireless network. Somehow both the Netgear software and Windows Network and Sharing Center are connected; when I reboot the computer, I need to use the Netgear software to connect to my network, and then Network and Sharing Center is able to map my network successfully.

However when I try to connect to my wireless via Network and Sharing Center alone I'm not able to do it. I have to use the Netgear software first.

How can I configure this so that the network is automatically setup when my computer boots?

Thanks

Does anyone know which driver would be suitable for XP?

And any tips on how to install a new driver would help.

A:Netgear Ethernet Adapter Driver

Try having win xp search for the driver for you! Just search for the new driver while online and include "allow microsoft to search its online driver base" as one of your search options.
Personally, I find most everything microsoft recommends you do as bad advice! I turn those auto-features off and do it manually. They pop up unwanted and unneeded warnings when you are busy and tie up your bandwith with low priority chores at inoportune times. Chances are, your old driver is working just fine-perhaps the new version doesn't reboot Icelandic computers when the moon is full or something. If it isn't broken, maby don't fix it.

When I start up my laptop, the network icon in the lower right area of the task bar appears with a red cross, "Not Connected", despite the Wi-Fi switch on the laptop being in the ON position. And after a few restarts, when the icon does say "Connections available", it only shows Dial-up & VPN networks, and sometimes Mobile Broadband Networks. It doesn't detect any wireless networks. Sometimes, the icon turns into a dial-up icon with a red cross.

I use a BSNL Broadband modem with a NETGEAR wireless router. I haven't faced this problem before. I ran diagnostics, and it says "plug an ethernet adapter". Please help !!

I have attached an image with the diagnostics result, and the troublesome icon is circled in the lower right corner.

A:Windows Not Detecting Wireless Network Adapter

I lean more towards the adapter.
1. The fact that it required several restarts to "come to life" and connect to your network.
2. A system restore did not fix the problem.
3. A clean install of windows 7 did not fix the problem.

Easy way to check, buy a USB wifi adapter, plug it in to a USB port and see if you can connect.

Hi Techguy Forum.

A few months a go I got a PC and so I bought this ASUS 802.11n USB Network adapter so I can connect to the Internet wireless. The OS for this PC is Windows 7 and the USB Network adapter works fine.

Since I am a gamer, I want to switch the Wireless over to my other PC (Windows XP) and connect the router locally.

Whenever I try to connect the USB network adapter on to my Windows XP it wont recognize it as a Network adapter.

I have tried installing the driver
Uninstalling, rebooting the reinstalling

I notice the USB device doesn't light up when it does when I normally connect it to my Windows 7 PC.

I am using a ASUS N13 802.11n usb wireless adapter by the way.

I have a mini pcie mSATA card that I want to use for a desktop of mine. Kingston sm200s3 60GB

I believe there are only 2 options.
1. SATA > SATA adapter > mSATA card
2. PCIe slot > PCI adapter > mSATA card.

As far as 2. goes; I have found a card that fits into a PCIe slot which has an input for the mSATA card.

I know that this is not the ideal way to hook up the card but I don't see any more options.

Which is there better way to go or what am I missing?

A:Mini PCIe and adapter VS. SATA

Whatever has an mSATA interface for it will work.

From here SSD Kingston 60GB SM200S3/60G mSATA p/ Ultrabook,tablet - Atera Inform?tica

its a SATA 3 device, so for optimal performance you should use something that can guarantee enough bandwith to not bottleneck it.

PCIe bandwith depends from number of lanes used (a x1 card has one lane, a x2 card has two and so on) and the PCIe revision/version of both devices. The panel on the right here gives all speeds https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express so just multiply that by the number of lanes the card has and you will find out its bandwith. SATA 3 has 6 GB/s of theoretical max bandwith, although actual transfer speed does not go above 1 GB/s afaik.

This Mini PCIe PCI E mSATA Intel Samsung SSD SATA 3 III Adapter Card with Case | eBay

this SATA III Dual Port to mSATA X 2 w/ PCI-e Bracket | MSATA-2XS3-BKT

are examples of what you listed as 1, and stuff I would orient myself towards if my mobo had SATA 3 connectors already. Because... hey, why waste PCIe slots for that?

I recently purchased a Compaq Presario desktop with no integrated wifi. So I picked up a usb adapter. The Retail Plus website says the adapter is compatible with Windows 7. However, after I run the setup and plug in the adapter, the drivers do not install. My apartment is wireless only, so I can't connect my desktop to the internet to download drivers. I do have a laptop with wifi, so I tried installing the usb adapter on it. Everything went smoothly and the usb works on the laptop. So I tried putting the drivers on a disc and putting them on the desktop, no luck. I downloaded a package from the Retail Plus website and I still cannot get the drivers to work.

Unfortunately, I am not very computer savvy. Any suggestions to make this work?

I left a mouse adapter inside the USB port of my HP Mini laptop. I never used the mouse, but kept it in there just incase. Never gave me any problems until i noticed a burning smell coming from the case. I started receiving tooltips in the corner that the adapter wasn't being recognized, and so i reached to pull it out and discovered it was very hot.. after pulling, it had split into two parts.

How this did happen? The way it was built, the case never gets enough cooling.. but it doesn't seem normal for heat to have gone straight to the port like that either, other components should have melted way before that.

I have to load it on to the other computer, copy all that is on the disc and put it on my external drive then transfer it to the main computer.
I know I could set it up to transfer from one computer to another but I don't want to have two computers on to do one job
if anyone knows where I can buy these, on line or at a physical store, (does not matter what country) could you pass that info on, much appreciated

I have a SoundBlaster Audigy card that has a funny looking plug marked 1394 but my ethernet cable won't fit in it. If I take out the sound card will that remove the 1394 Adapter?? Also, I have no manual for the FA310TX, how can I tell if the card is blown?? Both adapters show up in the device manager with no problems. Thanks for any replies.

Then I tried to update my security settings and went for a WPS2 PSK setting with password. Since then I have not been able to get the two to communicate. The router seems to be sending signals as it appears in the Available Networks window, and the adapter seems to be flashing blue lights occasionally, but the adapter won't pick up the signals.

Hi there,

I need to buy a new wireless router as my old one keeps heating up and dropping it's connection and requires reboots to get it working again for a few hours.

I was thinking of buying the NETGEAR DG834G wireless ADSL2+ router but I need to know if it is possible to set it up by using a wireless adapter rather than using a LAN connection. I managed to do this with my old Linksys WAG54 and need to know if I will be able to do it before I purchase this one.

Thank you for reading.

Ps: Should I buy some netgear USB receivers? Or should my old Linksys ones work??

I'm pretty sure that's the model I have on my kids' PC. What you need to do is download the drivers (Windows 7) and install them prior to plugging the adaptor in. It will then prompt you when to install the adaptor, once all that's done Windows 7 will see it and you should be up and running.

A:NETGEAR Wireless USB Adapter Connectivity Issue.

Check the channel you are using on the router and get it as far from cordless phone as possible. Try to use upper channels 6-11.

Hello Community:

I can't get my Netgear N900 USB adapter to work on my B130 with Windows 7 installed.  The N900 shows up in the device manager and says that everything is OK and that the driver is up to date.  The N900 installs when Windows boots up.  I have removed the WiFi card that came with the laptop and removed the Broadcom manager as the N900 didn't  work when I had it installed.  When I run the Win 7 diagnostics it says there is a problem with the adapter.  says driver problem. 
Can anyone help me out. I am stuck with the B130 until I can save up enough money to buy a better system.
Jim

I picked up two of these for almost free.

On the box it says 'requires MA401 Wirless PC Card.'

Won't any card work?
