Windows 7: No networks


05 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64 bit
 
 
No networks

Hello. I have a netgear router dg834gv4 which I have updated with the recommended update to use Windows 7 x64 ultimate. This router is working fine with an IBM laptop , a Dell laptop and an old PC - all on Windows XP. I have purchased a brand new pc fitted with Windows 7 x64 and because my old wg111v2 adapter doesn't yet have Windows 7 support, on the advice of the Netgear tech support I bought a wn111v2 and downloaded the latest drivers for it. Although in device manager the adapter is shown as working fine, I can't persuade it to see any networks and there are usually three or four in my area (not all mine of course). I can't see how to get it working. Help appreciated please

I just ran the troubleshooter on my network and in the detection details dialogue box I got a message

"There might be a problem with the driver for the network connection 2 adapter" and also says "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter".

Any clues please?

Hello Nigel, thanks for responding back. I appreciate the info however this is not the NIC, what you are showing me is a network adaptor. I was referring to your onboard NIC card on the motherboard. Asus has been slow to rollout updates for some of their mother boards. I've seen issues with other Netgear users. But I also see you custom built yor system so I suggest you update your motherboard chipsets and your LAN/NIC card. Here is the link, and attached is a screen shot.

You need to install those drivers by extracting them first.


extracted the WN111v2 2.1 software files, here is the upload

just gotta go into hardware manager and install the driver manually by selecting the folder you extracted from the archive.

As I've only just bought this system you would have thought that the Asus components would have been up to date - I'll check that with the builder on Monday. Thanks for the link on the driver - as I am inexperienced with computers, please can you explain the last instruction about the hardware manager and installing manually for me.

Thanks all for your help.

Hello again. I found out that the WN111v2 adapter I had didn't have the Windows 7 ultimate drivers and Netgear didn't know when they would be available. As my PC is in a different room from the router I really need wireless. I took the WN111v2 back and purchased a Linksys WUSB600N v2 instead because it is advertised as supporting Windows 7 - it doesn't!! I am having error 211 message if I try to install from the supplied CD and if I try to install from the latest drivers from the Linksys site, I get "access is denied" message. I'm really fed up - any solutions gratefully accepted please.

I already posted the solution for your last adaptor. It was an updated driver made just for your adaptor and Windows 7.

Digiroka said this. Just signed up to let you know I have my w111v2 working in win 7 x64 rc1.

To find out how he got it to work just read the thread in the link below.
http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=35415&page=2

Driver from that page is here>>> http://nexose.net/netgear/WN111v2_extacted.zip

I'am not sure how much more easy I can make this for you but if you can think of a way let me know.
