    :mad: I have a Netgear Wireless Adapter WNA1100 and I'm trying to connect my 2nd desktop comp using it. I'm having trouble staying connected. The wireless connection says 100% but when I ope IE and yahoo homepage comes up it only stays connected for a sec and it says "unable to stay connect, do you wish to work offline" then it automatically put in offline mode, which doesnt work. Now it's saying IE cannot display webpage. I need HELP please. I'm picking up wireless connection, just not staying connected. My wifi is working fine for my ipod, phone and 1st comp.

    Two things I would check:
    Make sure that you do not have the netgear wireless adapter manager and the windows default wireless zero config or Wlan running at the same time.
    Two wireless managers running will cause flakey wireless issues.
    Also,just to test disable ALL firewalls,Windows default and any antivirus suite that you have running.

    Also make sure you have the latest driver from Netgear's web site.

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.
