setting up internet on windows 7 proffessional

hi i installed windows 7 proffessional a couple of days ago (previousley on xp) and still havnt managed to connect to the internet. i was connected fine before i went to win7. i am using a wireless usb stick to connect to my router. i have tryed installing the drivers for this, it appears to work however the light on the usb stick does not come on and i still cannot search for any networks. i have also tryed a spare wireless usb stick but still doesnt work.

any ideas guys?

yes, the one ive always used and have a CD for is "NetGear WG111T"

and the spare on is a "edimax 802.11 g wireless lan usb adapter" or "edimax EW-7318ug"

try the following

To note; this is the WG111T and NOT the WG111/v2/v3, which have different drivers.

Step 1:
Download the 2.1 drivers from netgear.com

Step 2:
Uninstall any failed attewmpts at installing it, and unplug the stick

Step 3:
Run the installation until it gets to the "plug in the stick" part. Do not plug in the stick: do not press next.

Step 4:
Using explorer, goto the place you started installing the software (usually c:\program Files(x86)\Netgear\WG111T\

Step 5: Copy the file "WG111Tvx.inf" from teh "Drivers" directory into the "Netgear Directory". You will need to say you're happy as an administrator to do this

Step 6: Using the taskmanager (Ctrl-Alt-Delete then "start task manager") select the WG111T installation program under "applications" and then "end task"

Step 7: Plug in the device

Step 8: Either the window comes up to install the drivers, or goto control panel -> Hardware and sound -> Device manager

Step 9: Select the WG111T from under "network adapters"

Step 10: right-click on it and "Update Driver Software"

Step 11: Select "browse my computer for driver software"; select where you put the WG111Tvx.inf

Step 12: It will install the driver, and continue the software install. Continue to select teh appropriae settings.

Step 13: The device should now be working and picking up networks. it tries to load the netgear software however for me that failed and I just used the windows config to select the network and put in the appropriate key.
