I have just had to restore my computer to the factory settings as it had a virus and kept crashing. The system operates Windows Vista. I have loaded the cd to install the software for my NetgearWG111v2 wireless adapter and this has installed but the wizrd does not go on to install the hardwear. I have tested the adapter on another computer and it is working OK. I have googled the problem and someone has said that my operating system might not support plug and play. The adapter was working fine before I restored to factory settings. I am a bit lost now and very fed up! Can any one help please? Thanks

With the hardware installed, when Windows boots, you should get the "Found New Hardware wizard". At which point, let Windows install the drivers (if it has them) or use the CD and install the drivers from there. If it's not installing, what error are you getting?

Go on another computer and download the current drivers directly to a flash drive, and Install it that way.
