Download version 1.3

I was running into the same issue when I formatted my computer. It worked fine before that. I downloaded the version 1.3 though and it installed easily. There are step by step instructions how to install it as well. Hope this helps!

Go to netgear.com site download the driver (if you don't already have it) for your system and device. Install driver and software before you hook ujp device then plug in when it tells you to.

SOURCE: problems with WiFi netgear WNDA3100

the drivers should be installed in windows 7 by default, their so called "smart wizard" has some compatibility issues with windows 7, I get it to load up and it will shut down or glitch out. What I did was uninstall the downloaded driver and use the default windows drivers, flipped the switch off to my built in G wifi adapter and the netgear automatically kicked in and took over as the default wireless adapter.

hi dependent on what operating system you have you can turn off Upnp this is what is starting the auto install of the drivers, here is a link for you to download a utillity for this if you have windows xp http://grc.com/UnPnP/UnPnP.htm for windows 7/vista ,To disable it go to Start and type gpedit.msc in the Start Search and press Enter. Once Local Group Policy Editor is open navigate to,Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Driver Installation, Now from the right sidebar open the key named "Turn Off Windows Update Device Driver Search Prompt" and select Enabled and click OK Now Restart your computer or Log Off and then sign back in. That's it. Now Windows bother you any more. Enjoy! hope this helps

How to do a clean install of win 7


First make sure that your pc meets the minimum requirements for installing Win7. During the install, Windows will install most of the drivers that you need. I would see what kind of network adapter you have and download the drivers for it separately on a CD or flash drive. This will ensure that you can connect to the net after the install, which will allow you to obtain whatever other drivers you may need. Good luck. A Win7 install is actually pretty simple.

What do I need to Switch from a vista 64 bit Operating System to vista 32 bit Operating System?


You'll need an installation disk, but why would you want to invest the time and effort with Vista. Upgrade to Win7 instead (stay away from 8).

Had to re install cant get drivers


Do what we all do...search with Google. If your model laptop didn't come with Win7 64 bit, you may not find any drivers for it . Then try the Vista 64 bit drivers. Many are the same as Win7 drivers.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

Install vista to hp pavilion dv5 laptop


Make sure the laptop meets or exceeds the resources needed to run Vista. For all versions of Vista, at least a 1 ghz processor or higher, and 20 to 25 GB of free space on the hard drive. Memory: 512 for Vista Home basic, 1GB or higher for Vista Home Premium, Business, or Ultimate. The video in the laptop must be 16 mb or higher. You MUST meet the minimum requirements or the install and startup will fail.
