I had a NETGEAR WN311B installed when I bought a new Compaq Windows7
desktop. Generally it works well, but occasionally the Netgear 'Smart Wizard'
disappears & the wireless connection becomes unstable. I have understood
that the WN311B is running with standard wireless-N drivers
, that the
Netgear accessory is not exactly necessary, and my experience bears this
out, although the 'Network Adapter not inserted' message is definitely
disconcerting, while the network continues to function. Netgear stated
that the WN311B was 'Windows7 ready', and so it seems to be, sort of.
