Just put that in notepad and rename to confix.bat
You didn't just post something that does the same thing as the batch file I just posted? There is no need to repeat or copy my posts ok.

Yes it's also a fact that upgrades can be problematic. Do you have any idea how many times I've fixed these sorts of problems?

Both the 111v2 and 111v3, fail to work correctly with Windows 7 so many I've lost count LOL Those adaptors are just terrible with Windows 7, sometimes they work, other times not so well. Could be a chipset problem or drivers hard to say for sure but it's inconsistant to say the least.

Umm the batch file is quicker, all you have to do is click on it and run the file, which is why I posted it in the first place.

Most likely it's either the crappy Netgear connection software which should be removed or just finding the right driver which can be a bit of a guessing game with these 111v series adaptors.

Tried all of the above looking in Netgear settings, Batch file and Vista drivers still the same problem with having no internet access and an "unidentified network"

I'm currently the entire contents of my C drive onto an external drive just in case I decide to reinstall. Says I've got about an hour remaining to copy everything over seeing as its 11:30pm now, Still 93GB to go and a little over 107K files to go at 20.8MB/Second does an hour really sound realistic? If not I'll just wait till morning......

Edit again: Also tried uninstalling and allowing Windows to find the drivers and updating via Device Manager all to no avail

I'm not too surprized that the quick and simple answers aren't working for you.

If you can post a screen shot your ipconfig /all here it would be very helpful.

There many are other reasons for the Unidentified network problem but I can't diagnose it unless I can see the ipconfig /all from your machine.

I think I already mentioned that it's best to use the "manual wireless set up" in Windows to set up your wireless connection. It's best to take a look at the routers settings before hand.

As an Afterthough try enabling the Windows WLAN Auto Config in the services and let Windows Look for it without the "Smart Wizard" Controlling it ****** [Quote]

Have You Tried This Way?

Auto Config was already turned on. It did just say "Network 2" a few hours ago before I stupidly started messing around and its now Unidentified. Here is the Ipconfig:

You aren't getting a default gateway from your router in either of those. And I have no idea where that ipv4 address or the DNS of 5.0.0.1 but it looks like someone was playing around with your IPv4 properties to me.

Can you look at your IPv4 properties windows and make sure it's set to obtain DHCP ip automatically and that there isn't a DNS server listed there.
