Windows 7: Netgear WNDA3100 wireless adapter

09 Dec 2009   #11

Vista Premium SP1 64Bit

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies,
I also found a solution as follows:

1. Boot into Win74 x64
2. Insert driver CD provided
3. Connect Adapter to a USB port
4. Select install driver manually
5. Select search location for driver
6. Point to CD drive
7. Install!

This method wont give you the software, but in my experience that just screws things up anyway!

All the best,

Windows 7 Professional

It's much simpler than that. Connect the machine to the internet through a network cable. Insert the adapter. Let Windows search for the driver through Microsoft update. Done.
