Windows 7: Netgear WN111 cannot find networks

Netgear WN111 cannot find networks

I wanted to relocate my pc downstairs so therefore needed a wireless adapter to connect to the internet. I first tried my WG111T adapter and it wasn't supported, despite trying a process by Oliver Green and a amended atheros drive from Ryan Netgear WG111T Windows 7 x32/x64 Driver Installation CodeBlogso I went out and bought a WN111v2 adapter which says it works with Windows 7. But to no avail I cannot find any wireless networks (mine nor my neighbours) I have WLAN service started btw.

Any suggestions welcome apart from buying a mac. :)

Attached is the steps I used to install the WN111 adapter

Solution! Uninstalled Kaspersky Internet security and then tried the dongle again and found the networks. Now I have installed Kaspersky and all is good.
