Windows 7: No networks

07 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 bit

appreciate your comments chev65 but the link for the method and download didn't work for me. I spent 4 hours on the phone to Netgear support and they conceded that Netgear don't have drivers for Win7 that are tested and compatible. I can only go by what they say and the fact that I couldn't get it to work. I went in to device manager and selected the driver, tried to manually install it and it wouldn't. I've taken it back on that basis and bought one that was supposed to be compatible with W7 and the Linksys one is the same. This isn't an updated computer its brand new and the technical people from where I bought it say that there isn't one available from anyone at the moment. Bear in mind I'm not knowledgeable on the subject, just an ordinary user who relies on technical people for their advice - I'm sure someone here has a fix that works, its just a question of finding one. To reiterate my first point, I appreciate your earlier reply very much, I didn't ignore it - it just didn't work.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

They are wrong and the thread I linked you too proves that beyond any shadow of a doubt. Three people there said the problem was fixed, I don't know what more proof you want but this is the best solution your going to find for this particular problem.

If the linksys one did the same thing than your problems are probably somewhere else. WN111v2 and Windows 7 - Page 2 - NETGEAR Forums

Contrary as it may seem, the tech support people you are connected to are not always (ever?) the first ones to receive updated information. Equally perverse; many driver issues are often much better resolved by going to the Windows update site than direct to the manufacturer download.

Especially if you aren't comfortable making alterations to your computer system, it might actually save time and energy to take your computer to the router cable and let Update find the best wireless driver for you from Safe Mode with Networking.

windows 7 64 bit

Hey, I'm having the exact same problem. I have tried a number of "solutions" I have found in forums but none of them have helped really. This is the third wireless adapter I have tried. My friends old USB adapter worked in my machine perfectly and without installing any software so I really don't know whats going on.
