    Hey guys,

    Earlier today my computer just stopped recognising my network adapter. Luckily, I've got a built-in one but it isn't any good because I only get about 25% of the actual speed I'm meant to. I've tried the following to fix it:

    • Restarting
    • Unplugging the power cable for 5 mins
    • Reinstalling it with device manager
    • Using the disc
    • Using a different USB port
    • Replacing the adapter

    My computer is the Packard Bell iXtreme M5850. Can anyone help me try to fix this?

    Might be worth noting that my peripherals all work in whichever slot I put them in. It seems that only the Netgear product seems to have stopped working. It is the Netgear WNA3100.

    Try downloading (if you can) the drivers directly from Netgear. You might have better luck instead of the old drivers on the disc.
