Windows 7: Desktop does not connect to Netgear modem

26 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Desktop does not connect to Netgear modem

I have Windows 7 64 bit.

I bought a Netgear DGN2000 approximately two years ago. It is working well.

Currently, there is good connectivity between my laptop and the modem/router (wired and wireless).

I worked on my desktop this morning, uninstalled some programmes, but must have uninstalled a driver or something.

I inserted the Resource CD, which installs the modem (although it is installed). Then it stalls at some point.

If I troubleshoot, it states “Windows do not detect a properly installed network adaptor”.

Any help please

hi avz10,

you most likly need to remove the rest of the drivers that are still installed on the system and re-install them again. right click computer go to properties, on the top left corner select device manager uninstall the modem driver from their and then re-install it from the resource CD.

hope this helps

Cheers !!
