    Recently, I've been attempting to use my NetGear WG111T adapter in order to connect to my wireless network. However, the software to install, even the most recent version, is not able to complete the necessary steps to establish connectivity. The provided "Smart Wizard" will load, and then disappear a second later. I am given no access to my network whatsoever.

    I'm wondering if there's any way to fix this, or if there's a different adapter I could try? I've looked at the things regarding the WG111Tvx.inf file, but I am unable to locate it, and do not appear to have this file. The closest I have is WG111Tv.inf.

    If one is able to provide me with this file, it would be most appreciated; failing that, I am open to suggestions for other USB adapter solutions.

    Try Calling The Manufacturer's Technical Support, people here are general techs, not software / hardware designers, sorry to be blunt, but it's true..

    I appreciate the help. Sorry that my question was asking for so much. The problem just bugs the heck out of me. :p

    EDIT: What may help is if any of you have Win7 and a USB Adapter, no matter what type; if you know it works, and can tell me the model of the adapter, I may know what to purchase dwon the road, if the manufacturer does not release updated software in a timely manner.

    Are you using driver version 1.2 or 2.1? The newer 2.1 supports Vista which should also work with Windows 7 (may need to run it in Vista compatibility mode). Version 1.2 driver might be iffy.

    I'm trying to use 2.1, but I keep getting stopped after the "plug in the USB stick" part. No other window comes up.

    Perhaps if I ran it in compatibility mode for Vista, along with the Smart Wizard...?

    Disaster averted with Linksys WUSB54GSC. I had trouble with it at first, but it was actually too close to the computer to work. Moving it with the included cord fixed the issue. I appreciate your offered help, however, and hope that any further questions I may have may be handled so readily. :)
