i noticed quite a few people have this same problem but it never gets answered
i have had this for probably about a year and its worked great but recently, its been acting up a little
sometimes it would get limited or no connectivity i safely removed the device, put it in a different USB port connect again using all the same settings and it would continue to work this happened quite a few times over the last 2 or 3 weeks so i put it in different USB ports..
but now it just doesnt connect it has signal, i enter the correct WEP key but it can never aquire an IP address why is this?
Im using XP and i was using the Netgear software. Since i posted this message i then got a blue screen error saying that something wasnt installed properly which ive never had before so i thought i'd go to the Netgear site and download the drivers and reinstall them. It's worked fine since so hopefully that may be it?
Strange really cos ive been using the adapter for a year and its been fine. If it remains ok i'll post back and close the thread.
Glad that you seem to have it sorted , there is a version 2.5 beta driver for XP , don't know if it ever came out of beta ! Also just have a look at the power saving options of the USB ports in Device manager , untick the box for " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power " ( under USB root hub )
