But when prompted to plug the device in, the "Smart Wizard" software fails to load. When attempting to launch the wizard manually, it opens and then closes almost immediately. The installation cd provided I believe was installing v1. Message 1 of 6. Jeicher-- I have exactly this same problem on an XP machine. Message 2 of 6. It's a re-certified unit, which came with no software.
I downloaded the newest software off of Netgear's site [v 1. However, when I insert the adapter, the software "hangs" while trying to detect the adapter. I then connected my machine via Cat 5 cable to my Netgear wireless router after uninstalling the Netgear software. My machine detected the adapter and using Windows Update, I was able to download and install the software for the adapter. However, no networks were found.
It works perfectly in that machine. This adapter worked fine. I uninstalled this adapter and it's software prior to installing the WNDAv2 adapter. As an experiment, I tried re-installing this adapter using the latest drivers downloaded from Microsoft's site. This adapter's new software then was successfully installed, but like the WNDAv2 adapter, it could not find my home network.
Windows hardware troubleshooter states that the issue is related to the driver software. Message 3 of 6. Listers, Just an FYI. The newest version 1. However, using the original version 1. Make sure you remove all other versions of the Netgear software [version 1. If, like me, you tried using Microsoft update to install software from Microsoft, you will also need to remove that software as well.
A new window will appear. Find your WNDAv2 and right click on it. Another menu will appear. Click on the OK button. The software will be automatically removed and you should immediately remove the adapter from the USB port. Reboot the machine and install the version 1. It can be downloaded here. Message 4 of 6. Hey all- found another solution to the problem Unfortunately, if you installed the older drivers and it still does not work, I can tell you that it may be your anti-virus and firewall software.
I tried installing the adapter on my desktop with no luck, and tried the laptop with no luck. At first I thought it was the drivers too, but it wasn't. Windows detected it properly but won't turn on. The wizard "hangs" trying to detect the adapter Uninstall your firewall software, uninstall your anti-virus software. Uninstall previous netgear drivers, as well as window drivers as stated in the above post.
Now re-install your netgear drivers and follow the direction. It should install right away and the wizard should detect it right away with no problems. After it is fully installed, reinstall your anti-virus software and your firewall software. You and I now both have internet, YAY!! Message 5 of 6. I'm on Vista and am having the same issues with the wireless adapter hanging when the software asks you to connect it.
I tried the ver 1. The problem I'm having is every time I connect the adapter it installs the newer drivers automatically. Any way to disable that? Message 6 of 6.

WNDA3100v1 – RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N USB 2.0 Adapter
The product has been discontinued by the publisher, and Download. Was this review helpful? Used it 3 years with a netgear dual-band router - no problems with either. It's a big protrusion on the side of my laptop; surely they could make it smaller. It's 3X larger than my gig flash drive. I can download the software - which is something called the "Netgear Smart Wizard" and it seems to install fine. Then it opens - briefly, for a fraction of a second, and promptly shuts down. Thus the USB adapter is unusable.
