Windows 7: Netgear Wireless-G USB Network Adapter

Netgear Wireless-G USB Network Adapter


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 -

- 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?

Most wireless devices come with software that will look for and connect to local wireless networks. I do not have your software, but it may have a "profiles" setting that will allow connection when that newtwork is detected.
