Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless
"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
if this fails to fix the problem
try unplugging the usb wireless device
uninstall the netgear software in the add/remove programs in the control panel reboot and then reinstall the software then plug in the usb wireless adapter
hope this helps
