Netgear wireless USB adapter WG111v3

  juedoc 13:33 09 Oct 2011

HiI am trying to connect another PC to my Netgear router using the about adapter, I have installed the software and it connects to the internet with an excellent signal. After about 10 minutes the internet cuts off and I have to restart the PC to be able to reconnect to the internet. Any ideas please???

Look in device manager for the adaptor - select properties - power saving tab - untick Allow the computer to switch off this device.

I have gone onto properties for the adapter but there isnt a power saving tab.

In Properties you should have a box with 5 TABS - General, Advanced, Driver Details, Resources, Power Management.

You need to click on the "triangle" at the side of Network Adapters to expand then right click on your adapter (ie.Netgear) then you will have the box as described above.
