Netgear WG111

Hello. My internet stick (netgear WG1110) doesn't work on Windows 7. It's made for Windows XP, but there are Vista drivers for... I installed those drivers, more of them btw. But they all don't work. When I want to solve the problem, Windows saids that he can't solve it...

Somebody idea? Thanks.

Hi,

You will need to run the main EXE file with compatability for Vista. Just right-click the file then select 'Compatability' then Vista. Now try running it.

I've setup Windows 7 on a mates machine and he has a Netgear WG111 and I've got it working fine for him

Hope this helps

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

When you installed the vista drivers did you install them in compatibility mode? were they the correct version (32bit or 64)?
